Another time, Hickey stopped at an agricultural station as he was leaving Florida. The official asked for a trunk-washing certificate, but Hickey thought he asked for a truck-washing certificate. When the confusion cleared, Hickey searched his truck and found the appropriate paper.

“It’s something new every day,” Hickey says. “The certificate permits you to wash inside the elephant’s trunk to prevent disease. I wasn’t aware I even had it until he asked for it.”
Although he hauls a star, Hickey says he’s never seen Bo perform and downplays his role in caring for Bo.

“I should see him perform since he’s my cargo, and maybe I will before the year is up,” Hickey says. I’m just the parking lot maintenance guy who’s never seen. I just do my job.”
