certainly appreciate it - as would any of our STRI

As always, thanks to all our STR Instructors for
your ongoing efforts to teach our STR Program. I
appreciate your time, commitment, and the positive

shaded areas. Icy areas can be there all day long.
Be Smart and Be Safe!
See you at the next Big One ...
