Hi John
The research with live fire and wind on Governors Island was my last project with the inception of a training program. After that I plan to ride my Road King into the sunset.

Hey John, hope things are well.

Got any good leads on I/C worksheets for collapse operations? Specifically some points for safety officers to watch for, ways to assess stability of primary collapse areas.

John I though it was required that your picture posted be more recent than the Watergate scandle. Nice!

Hi John, good to hear from you. Yeah, I'll be in Indy April 10, 11, 12. Let's have a cigar and you can tell me about your latest escapades! Are you writing another book? You should write one about your years in Res3cue; you're one of the better writers around and it would be interesting.

Okay, see you in Indy!

Hey John,
Is that my gold in the background? You can get a lot of cigars with that becoming 1,000.00 an ounce as of yesterday.
