Wow Travis, that's it an amazing post. I lost my dad before christmas 2012, he taught me all I know about the outdoors too so your letter is especially touching. I wish I could go wheeling with my dad again.
I have to admit, I thought you were crazy when you asked me about paint a month ago. I don't know where you find the time but, great job man, you're a beast.
I hope Moab is fun for everyone going. I'm totally jealous.
