    I saw it last month (again), and can attest that this rig is (expletive) sweet! And it's (expletive) huge!

    Sup Tracy!

    Hopefully it leaves your state soon. Got my appraisal, finally error free, late friday night, just waiting for insurance to bind before giving the all-clear to move it.
