Not an LT Sighting, an LT MEETING

Well, this has never happened to me before. I've seen a few LTs in traffic over the last 6 years, and I was side-by-side with one in traffic a few months ago, but I've never seen in my home area.

Today on the afternoon commute about 4 miles from home I saw an LT behind me, on a little county road east of Pleasantville in rural Fairfield County, Ohio. I pulled over, he caught up, and we talked for awhile by the side of the road. He's a member on this site - Tom Roop ("Phoenx"), from Crooksville, Ohio. He hasn't been on this site for several months but maybe he'll see this.

It was kind of cool to have 2 LTs in this area. We don't see that many.

Nice meeting you today, Tom.

Re: Not an LT Sighting, an LT MEETING

Update:
I ran into Tom again today, this time we stopped in the village of Pleasantville and chatted for awhile. That's twice in less than a year. It's just very, very unusual to see an LT in these parts.
