How very sad to hear. We had a great visit at a Scout meet along with doc about 4 years ago and decided that he was a guy I wanted to get to know better. Glad his Scout went to a good home. When it's my turn they're going to need a backhoe, cause I want to be buried at the wheel of my Scout.

Very sad news. Will think of lou every timer I take a trip with his pack mule trailer. Wish he had been the po of the my Scout as well. Everything he modified was well thought out and executed, a true craftsman and great person.

Wow, sorry to hear this . Lou was always quick to lend a hand or offer advice. He will always be one of the original Scout guys to me.
