Sounds like you already got squared away on the accessory circuits following Tejon's advice. Just popping in to say that's the way we did things too. There are (were) a ton of unused slots in our...

It's our goal to make it, assuming it happens, this year (which would be our first). But that depends on the bus being done and our old dog being able to make the trip, both of which are questionable...
