I only use the truck lanes when the 43' 5er is hooked, and then always do. I prefer Pilot/Flying J as using their card is 9 cents off ( GS Elite) and do not get a bill to send a check in, just...

Just about 1200 miles to far. Too many days to get there and return. Near the Fl beach is around $2300 and much higher in the Keys, but only 900 vs 2500 miles each way.
