Rich: Yeah, I, I love Keith's work. …We we've worked together for many years, and he just rocks this, and we have got a …motorized slider here, but I want to tell you, why do you need this? …because this obviously is not something that you just, throw on your back and …walk out into the field, is it? Keith: No, not it's not.…
