Hawaii_Steve: Wake up Matt, Hawaii_Steve is in the room.
Hawaii_Steve: Hey, thanks for the good communication regarding the extras.
Matt1: Of course, glad to help
Matt1: I think we really need to start the NYC on at 20 before the hour though
Hawaii_Steve: The N.Y. travelogue is a bit long. I agree with your suggestion of starting it at 20 mins before the hour.
Matt1: The Cortez one, while short, was very interesting and more should be in the room at that point to enjoy it
Hawaii_Steve: There are several NY videos on YouTube, but the one I picked fits the time period and explains the sections of the city. Great old cars!
Hawaii_Steve: BTW, there is an attorney with your same name. Is that you?
Matt1: Not that I know of, but good to know, if ever needed
Matt1: FYI, huge shelf cloud rolling in with thunder, in case I lose internet/power
Hawaii_Steve: I know little about you except that you’ve been with the Chat Room for some time now.
