    Hey Bud!

    Enjoyed meeting you at the ADV Rally earlier this year. I was 3 sheets to the wind when I was talking to you, but I remember you said something about Sardis (sp?) and a funky mailbox. Found Sardis (been on it a hundred times - just didn't remember the name - about 10 minutes from where I live) but didn't find any weird mailboxes.

    Anyway, let me know next time you are back in town. Let's go riden!
