One afternoon last week I pulled into the Green Creek Rest Area on northbound I-57 near Effingham. I parked and walked into the building. A man was walking in front of me, and I followed him (at a distance) toward the bathroom door. As he neared the door, he stopped, turned around, and asked, "You want ice cream?" *Gulp*
I looked over my shoulder to see that he was addressing his wife who was standing in front of an ice cream bar vending machine. *Phew!*
Actually, there is a whole subculture of gay truckers and men who want to, um, meet them. Here's one example. If you ever wanted to know how to cruise for trucker studs via CB radio, the Naked Trucker offers this guide (note: my brother drives a big rig, but he is not the Naked Trucker, at least as far as I know). By the way, for those of you who last used CB radio in its 1970s heyday (think "Convoy"), don't call other truckers "good buddy" anymore--nowadays it almost always refers specifically to a gay driver. A homophobic, redneck trucker will probably run you off the road if you call him "good buddy."
