THE GEAR

    You might want to proof read your description pertaining to the Reno sign. In a few places you have misspelled ” sign “. Not a hige deal i know and you may have noticed and or been told already but i just wanted to let you know just to make sure. I know as a professional you would want to represent yourself in a certain light and this is an obvious but totally easy fix. Beautiful photos, i was born and raised in and around Reno-Sparks. I moved to Sheridan Oregon when i was around 29 years old, im 41 now.
