Re: Help PleaseóMoving to the Reality Stage

Might hang here sailing everyday and possibly hook up with you on the way down. I'll keep in touch.

Re: Is this Legal?

Keep your slip and try it at your friends for a week and see what happens. Not the h2o po-po I would worry about, but your friends neighbors.
