    Kirk,

    Thanks for the well wishes. Will be hunting with B on Thursday in a pit; it will bring back find memories of our trip to IL two years ago (has it been that long?). I'll let you know how it...

    Stinger,

    Thanks for the reply. How did you end up setting up the pressure? More Hillmann-esque or shaped?

    Bill,

    Just because I'm nosy, would you be willing to provide any more details about what particular lower pressure changes you made?

    As Swack said, keep us updated.

    B developed a hot spot and I've heard good things about the use of tea tree oil. Any recommendations on concentration or a better remedy?
