All that in one hunt? Hey Tom, get out your calculator, he is in Northern CA.

Man you must have really done your research. That was a great hunt!

I'm going to work out a deal for trashmaster : If/when he allows me to join in with him on the secret sites, I will forgo the 30% "CA tax". And might even take him to a site where he can get a phoenix button
