Congratulations on you move out of Kalifornia! Since you are slated to leave in the next couple weeks and I won't get a chance to say goodbye in person, I just wanted to thank you for your friendship and providing me a 'home away from home' in Armorama. Like most in this hobby, I have drifted back and forth in my participation (life and all) but I have always perused the forums and tried to keep updated on the hobby.
I will miss the trips to the SCAHMS shows and have fond memories of TamiyaCon and Telford. Best wishes to you and your family and next year after I retire perhaps we'll look you up when we do our cross country "two old folks on the road" tour.
As always be safe on your journey,
