Hey guys-

I’m getting hits on this website from guys in the Insane C-Notes. I don’t know anyone from that set, but would like to get some time to talk with you guys. Let me now if any of you want to talk, as a group or individually. You have my ear, so holler at me if/when you think Crossfire might be able to help.
