That is entirely possible. At one-point about 12-13 years ago, I had several email conversations about kitting the Carlisle Mark I ( with a base model stand that was engraved) with Carl..... It never came to fruition, as I was battling a number of medical problems at the time and the matter was dropped.

I used to have an office outlook .pst file that had all my emails from circa 1996. It had grown to about 2gb in size and although I had multiple disks in my PC at that time, I never bothered to back any of it up.

One day I was in some remote corner of the dark web snooping around and I picked up a particularly nasty piece of malware that literally ate my C: HDD, complete, destruction......lost everything......almost.

Luckily for me, a lot of non-email stuff was on the other HDD and it was saved.

SO, to make a long story short, all of our correspondence has been lost to history.

Over the past month I have been trying to organize the stuff on my various HDD/SSD and I keep finding stuff from back then that I didn't even know that I had. Plus now I backup everything EVERY Sunday like clockwork.....just in case.

Attached is a 1st draft rough drawing of the proposed Mark I that I sent to Carl back circa 2008. This was a proposed part listing with a few dimensions that I also got from doing some poor photogrammetry on my part
