Congrats, Gene.

Can somebody share the story on the bike in the tree? Is it just something Gene did as an eye catcher or is there more to it.

Were the Russians involved??

Gene has fed enough of us at the HUG rallies over the years to buy a small steakhouse. Anyone wants to show him some appreciation, I'm in.
