You have your feet firmly planted in two worlds! BTW, they also used to
drive the Earth Wrecking Tattoo Causing Alcohol Inspiring Smog Belching
Suburban and Ford F350 king-cab pickup we used to lend them! Looking
forward to another great season. Hey, Helen's mom goes to my dentist and
dear friend, Clare Macaulay.

We are really looking forward to another year of ferrying hikers. It
was crazy loads of fun.
Funny, none of those wanting a ride to REI seemed to care they were
doing it an Earth Wrecking Tattoo Causing (btw - I have no tattoos)
Alcohol Inspiring Smog Belching Jeep. :-D (Besides, the Subaru was
better at it and a smoother ride! ;-)
