He just parked about 5 trucks away from me at a Loves in Minden, LA!

How'd you know it was him? And did you buy him a cup of coffee?

Facial recognition and he was piloting a black Volvo with a "SAPA" sticker on the door, pulling a covered wagon.

Covered Wagon:

A flatbed with specially fitted side plates and curved ribs supporting a tarp covering, commonly referred to as a "side kit". Named for the resemblance to horse-drawn covered wagons.

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.

Hey PackRat, come knock on my door if you're still here. I tried briefly to find your truck, but I don't know what I'm looking for. I'd love to meet ya, but I need to bed down pretty soon.

Not to be....I was going to bed when you got here, and now I'm going to depart soon before you are back awake for the new day. I could update my profile if it wasn't locked up by the TT Founder. Safe travels Old School!

I would have had to put my britches back on to go knock on OS's door. Sleep be damned!
