Thank you for the invite Tarzan. My goodness that is a bit of a short notice. I am committed for tomorrow but might try and catch up with you people on Sunday on your way back. When will you be coming through Tucson and where will you be stopping. Might be a place where I can introduce myself.
Thanks
