I started driving truck in 1979 and quickly found out about Lot Lizards. Any truck driver that has stayed in a truck stop over the years I'm sure has had their door knocked on by a lady that wants a date. Good Luck, TomC

I had a friend get a visit from a "lizard" not to long ago and she told him she'd do anything for 30 bucks.  He gave her a sponge and some soap and told her to wash the bus

Clifford -  the funny thing is that she threw the sponge back at him and went off on him about being dis-respectful and on and on about being a hard working woman and doesn't deserve to be treated like a lowlife....blah...blah...blah...I'm sure there were a few choice words and all he could do is laugh...

Took me a minute, but at first I thought Luvrbus was saying that lot lizards had CB's.

I thought "Hmm... dang"

There are several lot lizards with hand held CB radios around the Pilot and Flying J in Phoenix.  Others just borrow a truckers CB radio.  Lot lizards rarely go door to door anymore-- the risk of getting caught by security or police is too high.

My door has only been knocked on twice.  I guess driving a plain white International pulling a plain white reefer trailer draws a lot less attention than a chrome clad Peterbilt or tour bus.

The CB thing was happening back in the mid-1970's, when I was trucking Dallas-Waco every night. They would get on channel 19 and announce at what rest area or truck stop they would be "working".

Fellows, you've let this thread deteriorate. What began as contemplative introspection on a public forum has become little more than junior high banter. I want to read more about the reasons others find for choosing mobile lifestyles.
