We were on our way to the Georgia RV Show at the International Convention Center this morning when I spotted another HDT and fiver.  We were headed up I-85, north-bound between exits 56 and 61 at about 1030 EST.  The rig was a Volvo, red in color with flames on the hood.  The fiver was mostly white with some trim coloring.  Looking on the resource guide, I believe it was Chuck Donnelly.

Here is a wave for you sir as I did not get a chance to do so earlier.  Safe travels to you and yours.

That was us.  We made it to Biloxi yesterday.  When we left Atlanta it was 20* out.  Biloxi was 50* when we arrived!   The pic you pulled was the guy that originally converted the truck, Chuck.

 I didn't see you.... that's about the time frame where your out of heavy traffic and can start to relax again.  We left Norcross just as the highways started to move at 9:30.  We had a local truck decide he wanted to make the exit to I-85 south from 285.... came across in front of us.  I mashed the brakes hard enough to put the truck into antilock and locked the trailer brakes... Kept it in a straight line though.  

So by the time you passed us, I was just getting back into the groove....

Jim,

I bet your glad you wasn't in a LGT!!
So how's the park? I hope to see you after the Tampa RV show, if my old truck will make it.

Park is ok, we fit in a pull thru.  We're taking 2 sites- back to back, but it works.  Power seems to be good, water flows and the sewer hooks up.  Place is quiet as far as people and dogs, but there are trains.... on a regular schedule.....

Greetings Sir!  Sorry you had the rough start that morning.  I can imagine going into anti-lock was a bit startling.  

You probably would not have noticed us anyway.  We were just another four wheeler headed down the road.  :)

Safe travels,
Jim

My shop is literally next to the UP mainline from the west coast to Kansas City.   I have either gotten more deaf or immune to the noise.    In L.A. my house is under the departure routing from LAX and with several other airports near by airplanes are a constant.     In Kansas the lack of air traffic was hard to adjust to,  the trains I guess are trying to keep me alive, here comes one now!!!

It didn't take but a train or 3 to realize its easier to just stop the conversation until the engines pass.   I thought about putting closed caption on the TV.....
