Hey Freddy we made it home in one piece and the license is still intact. Amazing hey! I will keep an eye on your progress, have you thought of catching up with Frank or will he be long gone by the time you are ready. Good luck with the rebuild.

Progress report

Hey Freddy have you done the Simpson yet? Did the TTR make it home or did you have to give it a sandy burial? I am interested to see how you got on.
