Don't apologize for a threadjack; it's bad form (because we pride ourselves on how well we do it. We even have a Master Threadjacker In Residence).

LOL!

Appreciate that, as I tend to go off on a tangent on occasion.

Regardless, thanks again.

Apparently he's still active on that forum, so will make it a point to drop in and say hello.
Tom, Jeff and I have reconnected. It was really nice chatting with him again after all these years.

To the other listers, apologies for the hijack to this original post. Sometimes you just have to do what you gotta do. Friendships never die.

gbyoung Success!

Much thanks to Kwoody and Tom for pointing out the vent repair link with pictures put up by Jeff Saline.

Coincidentally, I had the pleasure of meeting Jeff in 2006 up in Hill City, SD when I was up there for a COG Rally..... on my KLR. Had full intentions of trying to complete the GDR that went awry the year before when I broke my collarbone up in MT. Jeff wisely talked me out of it and pointed out some nice forest roads in and around Hill City.
