Bowing out

Yep, time to step away, methinks.
I've no doubt that I'll continue to lurk and read -there's too much good info here not to- but I don't see myself posting. I haven't really posted much over that past few weeks -most of it not even worthy of comment- so I don't think that'll be much of issue. You're a great bunch of guys and gals. Thanks for all the help and encouragement along the way. Have a safe and happy new year!

+1 with all above. We'll plan on reading your thoughts again before too long I hope. We've followed you from MTB to accomplished climber...be a shame to not keep the story going. To all things sometimes there has to be a break.

You'll feel better in the spring. But don't stay gone all that long, you're too much of an inspiration to too many of us to ever allow that.

Ouch. I feel like you just broke up with us and used that old line, "It's not you, it's me."

That's a little harsh don't you think? We all love him and don't want to do without him.

I guess as I read it again it might be a bit on the harsh side and I didn't mean it to be that way. Maybe the man needs time for other things besides this forum and so if he wants to he will be back it is a bit sad to lose someone that you seem to get to know. Sorry didn't mean to be that way
