    Not able to see the vid but gotta say still very envious of all the time you've spent out! Good luck!

    Wow. I remember when you first announced this but promptly forgot about it. So glad that you've kept it up!

    Cool, Dan. I've gone back and read some more of your entries. I think it's neat that you've stuck with it and are closing in on the end. You've got a lot of experience now to share with others. Well done!

    you're getting really good with the videos
    as well as SOOOO much experience.
