Click Here to download ERS-2011-06-22 #258 I feel like a world traveler, even though I’m far from it. A short trip to the Northwoods of Wisconsin followed by a day trip to Iowa yesterday it’s good to be home and grounded for a bit before needing to head out on the road again.  I’ve got to be honest with you, I’m beat and am in much need of a good night sleep. Perhaps it will come tonight. Good show, less content and we’ll cover the items over on ElevatorGear.com which we haven’t had time to do in the last few weeks. Thanks for listening today everyone. Enjoy the program.
