I met Andrew M. a while back, and today he visited from Georgia to check the 818 that is now in production and his kit that is shipping in a few weeks. Andrew started following Factory Five when he was in high school back in 2000. He has become a big part of the Factory Five community online, and now that he is building an 818, he is part of a new generation of Factory Five builders.
On his way out of the door, he surprised me with a significant donation to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation on behalf of my daughter Jen and other kids with CF. Thanks Andrew for the generosity, and thanks for your support!
