    I know brad doesnt hang out here much, but I know he does have some customers here. Brad had to evacuate for Rita, and arrived home this morning. Luckilly his home and shop were relatively un-dammaged, but the power is down in the entire area, and there is no news as to when it will be back up.

    Good news is that he, and his family are ok.

    Ah... that explains that. I am working with him on some stuff for the site... Unfortunately, some of my wife's family was directly hit (right next to Beaumont) as well... they are all up here at our place now.

    Hope that's all for our hurricane season this year!

    Just wondering if anyone has heard from Brad? I've tried phone/email, haven't been able to reach him...

    There is VERY limited power and water in that region right now. If he is anywhere between Winnie, TX (near Beaumont) and Lake Charles, LA - they are saying it will take up to three weeks to get power and water back.

    I know only because I am hosting several displaced family members who are from Winnie (my wife's sister's family).

    Hopefully he is okay (as well as his inventory - a huge investment).

    BTW - heard from Brad. He's been busy with clean up and getting things repaired... and taking care of business...

    But seems like things will get back to normal soon.

    Just FYI.

    Grew up in South Georgia, live in Atlanta now, but
    Godspeed to Brad. I didn't even realize he was in Louisana. He's sold me some of my favorite pedals.

    Including the Stupidbox; good job, Brian.
