Can't say enough good things about Rick so let me just say....he is a good man and I'm proud to know him. I felt I had a good read on him in a short convo on the phone (and a little adv and fb vetting/stalking) ....and I did. But jeez. We all know how much it could have sucked.
Easy keeper. Fun. Adventurous.
Invite him along on your next big adventure. No worries.
