Has anyone had contact with Rick88 recently?

I hope he's out enjoying a bike roadtrip before winter, and don't want to sound an alarm. Just a bit concerned since he is facing some health issues.

Anyone in NY/PA have contact?

    I bought his phono pre, but haven't heard from him since. Certainly hope all is well!

    Bump

    Kind of disconcerting. I've tried direct email as well. Keeping a good thought.

    Anybody?

    I had contact with him on Oct. 15. He told me it was nothing to serious or life threatening. I'm afraid that is all I can offer. No contact after that.

    As long as Lightman hasn’t paid him a visit recently, I am sure he will be just fine.
