Default It's been fun ya'll but it's time to move on

I write this as I pack and get ready to make a move to Atlanta GA where I have accepted a new position within my current company. I'll start by stating the obvious...

...this is a great group of people

For the last 5 years (despite my lack of recent participation ) it has been my pleasure to play, work and wheel with you. The trip to Rubicon with my son and the RS gang continues to rank at the top of my "best vacation ever" list.

The dedication to club events as well as concern for the environment and community (Rising Sun, 4-wheeling and public at large) that I have witnessed has been nothing sort of amazing. It will be a challenge for any other club to meet my new set of expectations.

The upcoming meeting will be the last I will attended (at least for the foreseeable future) and hope to shake some hands and give personal thanks for insight and knowledge I have gained. For those of you that cannot attend - Thanks and farewell for now
Mike W.

Have a safe move down there and have fun learning a new way of life!!

You guys will love it

As Matt says, it's been great getting to know you and maybe we'll all have to make a trip to the south east to wheel when you know all the cool trails!

Mike, sounds like an exciting change is in the works for you. I'm very happy for your. Now I'm going to have to find a new transmission jack to borrow. Many thanks for the help you have provided to me and theboomboom on our projects. Good luck and well wishes.

Good luck on the life style change Mike! It has been my honor to befriend you and Drew! I agree that it is now your job to seek out a new wheeling adventure and set up an RS road trip! I would be all over that! Take care my friend and happy trails. Maybe I'll see you Wednesday......are you doing OTB pre meeting?

it was an honor to share the trail, and the work we did for the trails. You will be missed.
a near-death experience is just god following "catch and release" regulations...
