As a truck driver I am fortunate that I have found many good shops across the USA and Canada that have helped me and when in the area I visit them even just to browse and say high.

What is this crisis you talk about? Papa Wheelies is one of my faves, 4 miles from the truck stop in Maine.
Which truck stop? The only one I ever found in that part of the country that I really liked was Dysarts in Bangor. One of my favorite stops anywhere on the continent.
