    Yes sir it was ! Thank you.
    I think it was in a pic that zettler posted that I seen a few guys, including yourself, and I wondered where those of you disappeared to...I hope all is well.
    I cant access my old photobucket account, but I know pics of Dan are there somewhere.
    If you find any more of that trip, please share em.
    Thanks again.

    Just saw this thread and regret not seeing it sooner.

    I remember taking the photos and will search for them soon to repost if I can.

    I remember going to Dan’s brothers funeral years ago and am saddened that I missed paying my respects this time...
