I'm sorry that it took me so long to find you guys and I hope it's ok to post off-topic.
Aerodog was involved in an automobile accident on Thanksgiving (head-on collision) and is in the ICU in Winston-Salem, NC. His condition is critical (his chest was crushed) and his wife - who was driving -passed away en route to the hospital.
My father is one of your posters and really enjoyed this board so i felt you all should know why he's not here. Hopefully he will be back soon.
