Wanted to see how bad it is within my ability,found this real fast, the future for wild pop looks grim. Drying there for a mere 300 bucks at this moment. No more assessment needed and pisses me off when its this f***king easy…McPherson needs more than ark of life..he needs a whole legion for any hope.
