(Didn't take much convincing, and it's something that I'm glad I got when I look back on it.)
I don't know that I'll ever get another one, although I've been debating something for about 11 years now. I just can't find a design that measures up. If I do, it won't be anything brand related. (Of any brand)

Hi, Great post. Nothing wrong with that. You and your buddies should be all very proud of what you did.

Cheers
