Anyone heard from Pete lately?

I've never met the gentleman (Mr. VanDyke), but he provided great insight to me as to how a BMW should be shifted, among other things I've learned from him.
I haven't heard from him in a while, though I see he's been on the forum in Jan and last wrote a thread in Dec (Re: Tony), I was just wondering if anyone has heard from him and knows how he's doing. With me having PMS, I haven't been as regular a lurker as I had been.
If anyone hears from him, please let him know he's missed as one of those, like it or not, that's a good read.

Thanks,
Jer

Re: Anyone heard from Pete lately?

Hi Jer,

Pete is doing fairly well. He has been pre-occupied with some family business, but I expect you will see him back around here before long, just as chipper as ever.

When I talk to him next I will pass on your kind words and well wishes.

Regards,
Tony
