  5. Hey Cole, Just curious about your funding. Did you take the hole 50000 out as a loc if so what was the interest rate? Just the interest could be a huge payment every month. Also thanks for all the posts in the past. It's good to see someones progression from scratch.
  6. Are you a yank? If no, any idea how hard it is to change over to a canadian license and how much it would cost?
