  1. I have always carried insurance for two reasons: to protect my assets and to protect my clients, neighbors, fellow drivers, etc. I feel obligated to mitigate any injury I may cause, and I carry enough insurance to cover any reasonable obligation.

  2. I am looking for the link for the octo-softbox you talked about in episode 45 podcast. I didn’t see it in the show notes. Enjoyed the podcast as usual. Thanks

  3. Thanks for the insurance advice- I’m from the UK (not Yukon?) but guess that might be my accent 😉
    Advise still applies and gratefully received though.
