Jeff,

It was great talking with you at the common Ground Fair.  The Bicycle
Coalition of Maine is doing outstanding work and Vermont can learn a lot
from you.

Thanks for including me on your list serve.  I am going to pass it on the
people of the Vermont list serve for their information.

I hope that we can get you over here to talk to our group some time in the
next few months.  We could really benefit from learning more about Maine's
experience.

George
