    Hi Rick, I got your message last night but was so taken back emotionally, I couldn't answer it at the time. It's times like this I find myself with little words other than, "what can we do to help"? Are you in the hospital somewhere, where we can come visit?

    Have you gotten second opinions? If it's okay with you, I'd like to suggest across the members board that we take the time and pray for one of our own.

    We're here for you my friend. Please keep us abreast of how you are doing.

    Hey Rick, miss you on our trips my friend. Keep an eye out, as we'll be talking to Mad River Mt. to arrange a snow kayaking event. See you soon

    I can open the camping grounds for you and your group and we have 16 acres for campers…6-7 groomed, primitive camping areas and a bunch of additional areas. Hell, I could set up the weekend with an outdoor inflatable movie screen for movies and a lot of fun times. I will hold you to this fun time reservation!!!

    From Dustin:

    We love putins and renters. Let’s plan a big camping/boating­ trip late in the year. Get a good group out soon, bring Rick and I’ll introduce you to Dad and plant the seed for a huge group later. At the end of the year we can plan a huge trip, we have 97 canoes and 31 kayaks to rent, along with 32 tubes and a 24’ rock climbing wall…and a 150’ zip line if you choose.

    Hey Rick, I went to Comfest today and ran into a good friend of mine I had not seen in a few years. He tell me that his family (Dustin Leasure) just bought Birch Brook and Mad River Adventures canoe liveries. he said although they do not offer it, we could camp on the 16 acres they have in between runs. Let's make this happen sooner than later. I'll call Dustin tomorrow to see when he can accommodate us
