Anyone heard from 'Wrongway' (Tom Reil) recently? Just wondering how they're weathering this economic storm. Tom has been a big help to our forum members and we wish him and his folks the best.

Chief,
I've been talking with him via email. In fact I have a email in to him now. As far I know he's fine. He is a great asset to the RV industry and a straight shooter. He's been a great helped to me on and off the forum. Here's to Tom!

Thanks Tom Folks, that's why he's known as the "Excel Owner's Forum 'Sir KnowItAll'". Where would we be without Tom?

Oh my goodness! Chief you gave my full name! Now, probably some movie maker from Hollywood will be calling me for a movie deal! You make my life so complicated! Thanks for the nice recognition anyway...I needed that!

We're stilling plugging along. The economy has changed some of the ways of doing business today. We are a little tighter with our operation here as far as maybe not turning the Air Conditioner on in the Sales office, but instead having the door open with fan running to circulate the air in the room. Again just tightening our belts on the operation, but still offering great products, service, and sales.

For not being on the forum much the last month of so. I have done a little traveling and also have been to several meetings that have keep me away from the responding if needed to.

The one trip that I like to talk about is one that My son and I took Fathers day weekend. We got on our motorcycles, left on a Wednesday and traveled to New York to see the Statue of Liberty. Did some site seeing in New York City, and headed back accross the Lower state of Penn. to see sites such as the battle fields in Gettysburg, the factor were my bike was built and more. We arrived back home on the Monday after Fathers Day. We travel 2534 miles and covered 8 states in 6 Days. It was great to spend the time with my son, Christopher, as well as get out on the open road.

Anyway thanks for thinking of us, and we are still our here for you RV Needs.

Thanks
Tom

Glad to here that your hanging in there Tom and good to hear from you. Had assumed your not being on the Forum was Family and related life and not because the internet had been turned off.

After a trip like that, can only assume your standing up when you typed your responce. I don't think I would be able to sit down for a week. Sounds like a trip you both will remember.

Best of luck, and don't be a stranger.

Chris

Thanks for 'checking' in buddy -- just wondering what happened to you. Gotta keep track of our core members.

Sir 'KnowItAll' had already informed us that you were still 'kicking' and doing as well as could be expected given the current economic situation.

Thanks Workshop.... Stopping and stretching was very Key in making the trip. We rode hard and fast to get there and did make the day very long and challenging. Only ran into rain a couple of times, once we just stopped and spent the night and the other we waited out. But other than that we had an excellent trip. If you never have seen the Lady of Liberty, it is worth the trip and experience. I never though the way the area looked or appeared from seeing it on TV or in Pictures. Great Time.

Again Thanks
