And chuck, in hawaii, where it is not yet 3:00 a.M. Good enough to be up and joining us today. Chuck, look. It's an amazing thing you did on skis. But did you know it would work up until the point that you tried it? I mean, you know what? I had a lot of faith in it. Growing up skiing when I was younger. And then, doing a lot of the big wave surfing here on maui. Combining the two, I had the vision in my head that it would work. And testing all of the equipment beforehand was kind of a buildup to getting there. But once I actually got out, and did it, that was the real test. It is a remarkable thing to see. We only have a few seconds left. And I don't want to cut you off. But I do want to thank you, chuck patterson, for getting up with us at the crack of pre-dawn and joining us this morning.
