Introducing IggyBobs, EliBobs, HankBobs, EssieBobs, and WillieBobs

I went long yesterday, so I'll keep it a bit brief today.

You all, are my heros. I came to believe during my time in Nashville, there there is very little that binds us that has anything to do with beards. The dedication to grow a beard for four months, to take a picture every day (that is hopefully entertaining), and spend hours praising other people's photos--is simply the mark of the kind of person I want to know in this life.

While our commonalities might have brought many of us together through some means, we have only @mackle to thank for bringing us together here.

Thank you to everyone that I've hung out with for the last 4 months. I've enjoyed every minute I spent on this site, and wished I could have spent so much more. I am proud that I posted every day I was in the site (I didn't get in until day 2), but more than anything, I am proud to have been part of this.

I will miss this, and never forget it.

You make me want to move to Montana, everyday. And I hate Montana. So that's saying a lot (my mom lives in Helena)

I hope to come visit you in Montana someday. @tedford has been trying to take me for years and now we have a friend there (and an excuse to do it!) Take care of your beard and your beautiful family.

Its been great man. Fantastic chatting with you at the throwdown. I can't wait to see what stops you pull out for Moustache May. I only wish I could be part of team octopus but I just don't have that kind of magic in my facial hair growing abilities.

Fofe says:
After 4 months I'm gonna miss exchanging comments with you late at night. But now we'll hopefully both be able to get more sleep.

We talked about the Yeard once or twice. After serious consideration, I decided not to go for it. Part of the reason is work, and part of the reason is Moustache May. After growing with you and the others here for 4 months, it's hard to think of sitting out the fun of May. So I'll see you in a few months.
If you get over to see the relatives in St. Helena, drop a line. Lots of good restaurants, wineries, and beer joints in the Napa Valley. Take care.

Seriously, the No More Shame campaign was amazing. I don't think I'll forget that one. Best wishes to you and your family.

Ozzy Nelson says:
You are a great man, and that was a great comment. I enjoyed meeting you at the td.
Back to your comment, @jnonfiction and I were saying the exact same thing to each other at the Mercy Lounge. Someone that has the discipline for four months to post things, to comment nice (with a sprinkle of poison) , to be creative, its someone you want to hang out with.
Thanks for hanging out with me for four months. I am better because of it.

I hope y'all make a Disney trip because then we can hang out again.
I'm glad you ended with family, because it's great to see the whole smiling group who has loaned you for these months. I expect great (and ridiculous) things come may, so get to brainstorming now.

mackle says:
With your epic Moustache May performance last year I was curious what you'd bring to the table in Whiskerino. It's a much longer haul but you went the distance. You nailed it. You brought so many goods it's sort of hard to believe. I feel like I really got to know you and I was so pleased to get to chat with you during the Throwdown. You are good peoples, through and through.

I best see you again in May because I know you've got something amazing planned and I want to see it. Badly.

Your last two posts are genuinely perfect. The post about your wife (somewhat for your mother) is among the sweetest things I've seen in a long long time. You guys have something special and I hope one day I can have such a nice life like the one you have built for yourself.

Isn't this thing nuts? You don't know why it's so great - you just know.

Wonderful to see you again.

ThatGuy says:
Man, it has been a true pleasure to share this with you. It was so much more to me than I really expected, and It was so much easier than I expected. MM last year seemed so long to me, and now I could do this everyday for another 3 months easy. So crazy. Thanks for always being supportive of my shots, and I will definitely see you in may. 'til then....

I wish we had spoken more while you were here. I have a great love for Montana, specifically Missoula, where I have spent many of my formative moments. I learned about the Pixies while I lived there. I love that band. I ate the best Mexican food I have ever had while there. I learned to skateboard there.

Say Hi to Missoula for me. Maybe I'll make my way up there again one day.

Best to you and yours.
