Wow it is really over. Can you believe that? Well I made it 4 months as a part of team #hobo and I am ready to tame it down a little bit. This has been an amazing experience and even though I didn't get to do the whole Throwdown it was still great to meet so many great guys here.

I was told about this group of rebels by @creole back during the '07 run and waited patiently for the '09 shavedown. It was the first time I had been without any facial hair since 1998! This did not disappoint.

Thanks @mackle for all the hard work you put in to this. I walk away from this with a great sense of accomplishment. I posted 80 images, I got a King Beard, participated in most of the themes, did a perfect attendance December and even did a personal theme week.

Thanks beardos, I will never forget.

Pulling back the curtain a little for your last shot. Strobist, I presume? Congrats on keeping hobo all the way. I'm with you on the reeling it in part. They can be a handful at this stage.

I've learned so many things from so many people here, but you have the unique distinction of being one of the growers here who directly taught me something specific. Thanks for introducing me to the snoot. I had never heard of one, and after your introduction back in december I made one in about 5 minutes. Thanks for being awesome.
