Yes, I know Karel. I used to work with him in Welland (late 80's). Unfortunately I have not kept in contact with him (and Dana) since. If you do manage to contact him, enjoy your time. He is one of the most brilliant herpers I've ever met.
Sorry I'm not too much help. But if you strike out completly contact me via IM. I'm sure I know enough old school herpers to track him down again.
