Craig, so many of your games are in my wheelhouse.  I love the Avalanche Press series, although I can't keep up with them (Parachutes Over Crete being the most recent example).  I'm also regrettably abandoning Europa; not enough FTF players here where I live (and it's a very active wargaming community) for what is basically a "dead" series.  Am auctioning off all my Europa games and magazines at Prezcon.  It's an emotionally traumatic event given how much I loved the early GDW titles.  Love La Bataille, the Admiralty trilogy games, and more.

Greg, thanks for joining. I really enjoyed my time back in the 1980's when I lived in Palm Springs right off Ramon Rd. near the main road. It was a great townhome location but it was on Indian land, so the lease fees were just way too much so we sold the property. A shame because it would be a spot I would have loved to have visited again with my family here in Dallas to have vacations and also attend the pro tennis tournament that takes place each year around February.
