Thanks for filling us in. What a shock, I'm really sad to hear about his

I haven't seen Dan for a couple of years. Used to run into him all the time
when I was dragging JR around to all the ski swaps. He always loved to talk
tele. Always had some great stories from his latest Gaspe adventure. I have
a couple of favorite photos of my son back in the J5ish days up on
Hillman's - he had these Fischer race skis I remember haggling with Dan over
@ the Smuggs swap. I'll be thinking about him next time I slap the skins on.
