would like to shake your hand as well, turbs. not many any more would go out of their way to help complete strangers, especially in conditions you described.

years ago, my brother in law had 2 or 3 snowmobiles (john deere is one i can think of). my sister got tired of seeing them take up space in the barn since it doesnt really snow much here and got him to sell them. for the next 3 yrs, we had enough snow to support (justify) owning them. he has 2 more now for just in case
