For the past four years, Olson has been loading up his truck and trailer in Augusta, Georgia, with 11 bird dogs and driving more than a thousand miles across the South to the Texas Panhandle. “It’s a lot of work on the road. You stop every six to eight hours, stake your dogs out, offer them fresh water. Pretty soon, they learn to go to the bathroom on the stake.” After the dogs go to sleep for the night, Olson can drive without having to stop as often. When he does, it’s usually in a Walmart parking lot, preferably one with plenty of lights. He locks up the boxes, unrolls a blanket, and sleeps in the cab of his 1-ton, flatbed Ford.
