Thanks Noel - 7:04 a.m. 2/27/2014
Just wanted to share my deepest
gratitude to Noel and all folks
posting here over the last 4 years
I've been in BG and on the GP. I no
doubt learned a lot faster where to
test my luck with best success.
I've seen Noel at many community
meetings volunteering in different
capacities, and know the huge value if
a community forum of this sort.
So a fond farewell to you all as I
begin a new adventure on the Malheur.
Many blessings and tight lines to you
all!
The only advice I'd offer: Pick up
your trash!
