I left a sticker and note for her at the Monument Point Lookout in Montana a couple days ago. She'd have loved the 20 miles off the pavement to get up to it, the 2,980 miles before that, not so much.

Probably. Its a puller I've had for years, I really don't remember where it came from. A splitter may not work in this case, the cooling blades limit access.
