How do you decide when it's time to pull over.

If you can drive 11 hours, when do you start looking for parking.


Suppose there are no truck stops and you're at 10 1/2 hours and your dead tired and there is nowhere to park?

Or...lets say you finally pull into a truckstop and there are NO parking spaces...next truck stop could be anywhere...

This seems like the biggest pain in the butt.

Where to park after 10.5 hours
by: Anonymous

You should've trip planned to figure out where you'd be after your 10th hour and map out the closes truck stops, walmarts, rest areas, etc. If your truck-stop is full, park as inconspicous as posib and wait til someone pulls out - just dont fall asleep before that.
