Juicy looking morsel, Scott. Have a great trip.

Scott, there's a lot of good stuff stacked on this one. When bling is the thing that's called for this will certainly do the job. Bling and action. Nice sbs.

Quite nice. A good searching pattern for the fall I'd imagine.

Have a safe and wonderful trip.
