08/24/17 at 1500 est on I-85 southbound in Georgia heading toward Atlanta, I spotted a SAPA truck operated by Knight pulling one of those covered Flatbed's. Now earlier in the day I had just skimmed thru an old thread on this site that Old School had posted a bunch of pictures of himself. Old School, was this you I saw out on the road?

SAP:

Substance Abuse Professional

The Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) is a person who evaluates employees who have violated a DOT drug and alcohol program regulation and makes recommendations concerning education, treatment, follow-up testing, and aftercare.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

That was a genuine sighting! Rare indeed.

If you tried to holler at me on the radio, I couldn't hear you because for some strange reason my radio has stopped working. I am going to have a look at it next time I take some home time.

Oh, and by the way, Atlanta was just lovely at about 4:45 when I collided with its cluster of obstruction and impediments.

I did call for you a few times, forgot to mention that.

I was able to breeze around 285 without a hitch. Safe travels, I'll keep my eyes peeled for you when I'm on the east coast.

I had delivered my back haul load from Farmington, CT to Greenville, SC, and was heading to Gulfport MS for some service to my truck. After that I'm picking up my next load in Delhi, Louisiana going up to Rhode Island.

Where in RI? Maybe I can see you!

Of course, here in my tiny state, a specific town is... SPECIFIC! Somehow we've crammed 37 of them into our tiny mass of land. My town is 58 square miles, which really says something around here. Keep on the lookout for the Big Blue Bug, if you're going up that far.

Hey Linden, I'll be making a delivery to a place called Lavigne Manufacturing in Cranston.

Okay. I'm 15-20 miles south of there, but you will pass the bug. A big statue of a bug on top of a pest control business; to the left when you're going north on I-95. Us Rhode Islanders love that thing. During the holidays they decorate it as Rudolph and sometimes put a big Del's Lemonade cup (another Rhode Island thing you should try while you're here) with a straw to make it look like it's drinking it. Here's a picture of the bug: poi_gallery_image-image-d666f010-1c0f-48bb-bfae-d7a6729a27e0.jpg Also, here is the Del's one: b577c2fbe596a779099654fc9518db98--rhode-island-history-island-food.jpg

It's real name is Nibbles Woodaway.

You just made my day Linden. I really enjoy little bits of local history and trivia about the places I go to.

I will definitely look for "Nibbles."

It's possible my dispatch will get changed before it gets finalized, but as of today that's how it stands. If it stays the same, I'll let you know I'm coming.

Okay!
