Looking forward to heading back your way soon.  I am really curious to know your take on the ventilation strategy that Kleiman used in the homes for Pioneer Pacific.  Do you know where they came up with that system?

Hi, Eric.  I have a Testo 327 that has only been used 5 or 6 times.  I'm willing to sel it for $700.  I know it is not exactly what you are looking for, but if you are interested, call me.  I'm in Tukwila.  You can reach me at 253-508-3542.
