Hey everyone, here is resues reply to the question posted:
At 12:40am on April 5, 2009, rescuelifeproducts said… I think you were asking a question about the direction to take on this trunk discussion. my anwer is simple. You are free to go in any direction as each of you choose, I started this group because I knew that most of you would have more to offer from your experiences with trunks, I wanted to just aid the process.

Let say we try stay in a pattern that allow for more variety.
If that variety carry us to far, I'm going to allow for you to remind us to temper the spread and conclude the entire process, so that we may dedicate our time to other wanting areas of this site. Ok?

Thanks everyone. If you can't tell. I have something to post. :)
