The new teeter was delivered yesterday - USDAA specs with rubber contacts. Unfortunately it has a nodule of solder in the support bracket tube so the teeter plank pipe won't slip through the support bracket pipe. I've emailed Mark for a plan forward. I'm anxious to test it out once it becomes functional.
My birthday present nagivation Garmin (thanks again Mike!) seems to be functioning well - I let it map on the way to work this morning. Mr. Garmin will put it to use in the next few days... I'm off to Ruston this weekend, then off to a work meeting in Lutcher next week.
