    WOW! I stumbled across Adair's website today on a Google and he is by far the most impressive in his knowledge. His prices are great, too.

    Does anybody know if he is related to the late "RED" ADAIR known for being an oil well fire "BlowOut" specialist in the 1960's? Red Adair was the model for the movie with John Wayne called "HellFighters."

    He'll answer you.
