XLR in Blakslee PA

SO, I'm on my way home from Pocono RV yesterday, having my 30 HFS-5 inspected, and I stop in Blakslee PA (10 miles from my home) to have lunch (big parking lot with room.) As I'm walking back to my rig to head home, ANOTHER 30 HFS-5 drives by south on PA 115--I thought I was hallucinating. Was that any of you all on the forums? They're so rare to see at all, to have 2 of them so close must be, like astronomical odds...

Last week we were headed home from Zion, Utah to So. Cal. As soon as we get on the 15frwy S/B, we see another full body paint Thinderbolt XLR headed N/B. Ours is HD orange and the other was Acid Green. The wife and kids were so excited seeing another one. It was definitely an eye catcher.

Always cool to see someone else with the same taste!!

I saw either a 2 door 27HFS or a 29 behind a rollback with what must have been the TV on the deck ... near Sevierville TN last week (can't remember the exact spot) I was on the bike and did a double take.

I saw this in OKC yesterday on I 40. I got so excited I had to snap a photo!
It must have been new because it had a paper tag on it. I'm not sure if it was a 29 or 30 but it sure looked good going down the road!
