Blimey this sounds like something i'd like to give a go. Think i'll head to the nearest truck park as soon as i have my tea and do some lorry spotting. ;D  Seriously it's amazing how many stories have popped up about Eddie Stobart since he passed away the other day. 8) I think Ray's on the right track.....some public exposure to this hobby here in the US & Canada might make it easier to take pics but do i really want to fight with 6 other people for a spot outside the Bordentown Petro. ::)

 I can just imagine hundreds of people banging on your door asking permission to take a photo while you try to take another nap. ;D

I just did exactly that. Todd Dills is the writer. I mentioned Hank's Truck Forum to him today when Diane and I met him for lunch. He lives in Nashville and he came to a truck stop to meet us there for lunch. Todd was aware of Hank's but was also interested to learn of the truck spotters who gather here too.
