I appreciate the badgering on the thread. Very nice. I have added a comment as well. :) And please feel free to pick up a few things that you can poke fun at while ya down my way. I will undoubtedly being making tracks for the North at some point in time and I will stack up my arsenal then. And as far as crossing paths...well you know were I be at.
