Beards and beard-lovers, I want to thank you. Whiskerino has been a wonderful experience for me, and each of you is responsible for that. From day one, watching the creativity and humor unfold here has been great. These 120 days have been some of the most fun I've ever experienced, and I'm very thankful to @bobafred for introducing me. I, like everyone else, also have @Mackle to thank for curating this entire thing and uniting this not-small group of guys under the banner of obscene amounts of facial hair.

I'm thrilled to have met what is, unfortunately, only a small fraction of all of you. If it weren't for that pesky job thing, I would've liked to have commented on every photo posted every day in a proper show of appreciation for the time each of you has put into this community.

As it stands, chatting was my game, and it allowed me to get to know those of you who also waste hours of your workday to goof around with other beard growers. It's been indescribably fun, and now the end is nothing if not bittersweet. That being said, I won't call this goodbye. I'm hoping to call it a beginning of multiple friendships, begun over the course of 100-plus days and strengthened in Nashville. I'll do my level best to stay in touch with those of you who don't live in Atlanta, and to try to stop in to see those of you who live abroad when I can.

From myself and Heather, we wish you all the best of luck.

Keep in touch:

I feel like I'm leaving your house after the best 4-month-long party EVER! It's been great brother. Your beard and your shots blew me away. Take care.

It was a shame that I was a commenter and you were a chatter, and we didn't cross paths much. So it was great then that we were able to merge the two worlds at the Throwdown. Meeting you and Heather was great, and I do hope I can get to ATL someday.

Do seriously drop me a line when you head near Orlando. Love to get together again.

Thanks for working on the bowling alley sponsorship, too. Like I said - best feeling I've had about a company I use in a long time.

Be well.

Fabio, you rock. Borderlands woooo! Haha I hope you remember that. I still like the photo you took on forced perspective day with the transformer, it makes me smile. I appreciate the free bowling hookup, the mackle pose, and most of all for coming on here and sharing your awesome self with the rest of us!!! Your beard is the stuff made of legends. See you around online man, and hit me up if you're in Phoenix sometime, we'll have to hang out. My parents live in Atlanta so I'll be out there occasionally for the holidays.

I only wish I'd met you in person earlier in the Throwdown. But the fact that I started chatting with you a mere 10 minutes before I left Nashville and still managed to have a good and memorable conversation is part of why Whiskerino was so awesome.

Glad we met, and glad you participated this year.

Ah Whiskerino, it's odd to think that our friendship developed due to a beard growing community. I won't say good bye since we will be seeing each other around. What I will say is that you have an impressive set of photos and I'm glad that you stuck it out to get perfect attendance.

See you on the Kickball field

Bulleted list to help save time as WhiskerTime runs out and I'm pressed for properly replying:

1) Thank you so much for the MailChimp endorsement.

2) Thank you for being an incredible participant. I love it when someone GETS Whiskerino as properly as you have. It's been a blast.

3) You are required to participate in Moustache May. REQUIRED.

4) Also required to join us at /talk (clame). You may even already be registered but I want to make sure you know of it.

5) Your words on my last photo were extremely powerful. I can't really even properly respond to them but just know that I was taken by them and appreciate them so much that I can't even say how potent they were.

6) Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you.
