Thumbs up Kudos to Ige

For her really nice article in March/April Toyota Trails on her and treeroot's trip out west last year for SEMA and Pismo. It's a very enjoyable read in "typical" ige style. I mean, it felt like we were sitting around the campfire drinking whiskey, listening to her recount the trip.

My favorite passage talks about seeing Mark Hawley and David Zartman "upstairs" at SEMA, and she says, "Yep, that's right, we know people-we belong here at this exclusive tradeshow. We are no longer just a couple peons who build Land Cruisers in our driveways... we are important."

Right on, ige! If you ever get tired of selling truck parts, I think you have found your calling.

Great job!!

No cover this time.

The pic is cool, don't get me wrong, but my grandma's birthday cake pics are more artistic. Sorry Todd, I had to say it.

Great job Ige! I don't usually read much because the ADD in me likes the pictures. For the first time I can remember, I read the whole thing. Kept my interest and everything.

I laughed at the, "we know people" part.

Just got mine. Ige, your trip write-up was lots of fun to read, and so was your chapter report. You could find yourself a career as a writer, if you ever get tired of doing whatever it is you're doing now at the new job.
