I know a lot of truckers who buy lottery tickets in the many states they visit. It could very well be one who knows. Every once in a while i have heard or seen articles in state lottery news reports. Might read like ( trucker wins lottery ) (long haul trucker wins 500,000 )
I could see the person being a trucker or having a job that travels. Or he may have access to something like betslips. At least for the smaller games like Pick 3 and 4.
During those early months at LP I always expected to encounter the person on one of the threads. I used to read the threads carefully looking for some hint the individuals doing the posting might be he.
I occasionally would even send PMs to people asking a seemingly innocuous question with an answer that would ID the guy. Never got the right answers, however.
So if the guy in the strange experience is anyone on LP he's remained escondido.
No reason, I suppose, he'd stand to improve anything for himself by admitting to me he was the guy, so he might be here anyway. But again, he mightn't.
As for the guy the thread is about, it's difficult to imagine what he'd have to gain by being an LP member. Sounds as though he has things about the way he wants them without the headaches a person in his position might associate with LP membership.
