Cap, thanks for the add. You've been one of my "go to" guys on training topics for as long as I can remember. Hopefully, one day we can meet up and I can finally take one of your HOT classes. Come on down to Chucktown anytime...

Hey Cap! How is everything on the other side of the country? I would bet it must be getting a little chilly. We're cooling off a bit here too, it's about 70 degrees right now! Hahaha... We are definitely gonna have to get you down here to teach one of these days. Take care Brother! Aloha -Shane
