Just wanted to let you know that I am still around and I do love to get
the e-mails and the ideas that some people have are awesome. I try to
read most of them when I have a chance too. I am just guiding in the
back country a lot these days. So please keep me on the e-mail list and
thank you for keeping the spam out out for the group.
