    My husband is a truck driver, and I live in the truck with him (free travel and no rent). I just wanted to say something about showering at truck stops.1. Major truck stops like Pilot/Flying J, Love's, and TA/Petro have really nice showers with lots of hot water that are cleaned after EVERY use. 2. If you are going to straight up pay for one, it will cost you anywhere between $10-$15, but you dont HAVE to pay for one.3. At the major truck stops, every shower credit can be redeemed for two separate showers. This is so that team drivers (two drivers in the same truck who alternate driving) don't have to pay for two showers, but anyone can redeem that extra shower.4.

Be social (truckers love talking) and ask a trucker if you can use one of those team showers. If you want you can offer to pay for it, but chances are, the trucker will let you use it for free.5. Most truckers earn free shower credits because they buy over 50-75 gallons of deisel. Most trucks hold at least 200 gallons, and most truckers have to fuel up every other day. Those shower credits tend to build up, especially at Pilot/Flying J (they have a special where truckers can get a free shower credit everyday if they fuel at least 500 gallons every month). Don't feel bad about asking to use someones shower credit. The worst thing that could happen is that they say no.TL;DR: major truck stops have nice, clean showers for $10-$15, but you can ask a trucker to use one of his extra shower credits for free/cheap.
