Claim your books.

Congratulations, Steve! :slight_smile:

And thank you, Paul, for doing the questions. :smiley:

Good job Steve. Thanks Paul, learned something today.

Me too!

I just did a 203K which is changing from a sandpoint well to aqua. Since I’m the consultant I did a quick study on wells so I would at least be able to discuss the work. Hence the well questions.

Wow! Thanks!

I learned a thing or two about wells building customs in the Rockies, and I learned even more from researching your questions!

Congratulations Steve!

Thanks Paul for the questions.

My pleasure.

I learn a lot from QOTW. I answer the questions when the other committee members put them out there. After a while a guy can sound like he’s pretty smart, even if he isn’t. That’s how I roll. :smiley:

Congratulations Steve, thanks for your time Paul!
