    Is it ok if I use something similar to your idea of taking the return track underneath the bed?

    Hey that's creative! You used the same song in Intertwined, but this one's slower! That's smart! Nice!!

    So you haven't taken it apart? I haven't been building Citadel, but just recently I've gotten interested in Knex again. I've been cleaning my room, and when that's done I'll start working on it.
