Dateline: Interstate 5 north, approximately 11 miles south of Tacoma, WA 03/21/2018 0922hrs

Subject passed me before I even knew it was possible that he could be the quarry I seek. He was immediately recognized to be a member of the species knightus sapadedicati, of which I've long searched for the very existence.

Specifically, the subspecies oldisi schoolicus has proven to be a most elusive creature. There are but a few documented cases of contact in the wild, but none this far away from his natural habitat.

Could this have been a rare glimpse? An attempt to make contact via the CB produced no results. Thus, I could but watch the beast sadly as it wandered away further into the concrete jungle.

Perhaps someday my efforts will be realized. But for now, just the visual proof of the species leaves me with hope of eventual contact.

Turtle, we're gonna meet one day, and I'm looking forward to it!

They pretty much keep me in the East. I am out West occasionally, but you more than likely saw one of our drivers who is dedicated to the SAPA plant in Portland, Oregon.

I'm spending the night tonight in Deep River, Connecticut. I'm starting out early tomorrow for Charlestown, New Hampshire. Then my itinerary is...

Cressona, PA

Birmingham, AL

Delhi, LA

The search continues...

My quarry still eludes me, though I'm certain he has more than once been within my grasp. Close enough to feel the hot exhaust bellowing from his stacks, and the rushing winds in his wake.

I now sense a closeness, a presence perhaps. Unseen eyes follow, alert to my approach. I am among his kind, and they are wary.

His den is near...

His home turf is really close, but he’s probably flown the coop.
