Saw two (2) (!!) RHD 40 series trucks on northbound I-25 today.

First one was our esteemed webmaster. Honked and waved, he thought I was the tan FJC sitting next to him

I continued on (since he wasn't going the speed limit ) and saw a green tailgate with TOYOTA in big letters across it. No way! Two 40 series this close together (but outside of sight from one another)!? As I got closer, I realized it was RHD, so I pulled up next to him and gave him a honk and a wave. I hope he didn't think I was trying to run him off the road. Anyway, got to thinking about it and this truck was on the 40s Only Run last year (4th one down):

Got off at Downing to go to Washington Park, and as we were getting out I saw the whitish late model 40 series front end coming my way that I had seen earlier. Waved again at Kraig and he pulled over and we chatted for a bit. Good to chat with you Kraig!

Anyway, it was a good window of opportunity to see 40 series out and about this afternoon!

Good - found out it's 2.5 miles around the park if you take the running trail. It was a good day just to hang out and yeah, watch the people. It was good to relax. How's the tranny swap going?

Caught Kraig on C-470 near University on my way back from the BOWAGWR run last night; even though I was waving a swerving I don't think he saw me. Since he's sitting on the wrong side of the truck, I imagine it's hard to see someone all the way across the highway.
