First of all, thanks to @carynorton for this most awesome portrait. It's simply stunning that he shot these the day of the bowling. It was fascinating just watching him get through everyone... exhausting in fact. For this, and much more... he's a legend. Also, again, to @chinfropro for his photobooth and @yourfavorite for his most awesome split polaroids.

Obviously we all thank @Mackle for this whole thing and I'm sure he's tired of hearing it but he's a true legend!

I need to thank @johnatcollege for coming with me to Nashville. It would have been a longer trip without him and he makes me laugh so hard. On that note, I want to shout out to @rnnbrwn and Claire too. They are the most awesome couple around and anyone who had the chance to meet them know what I'm talking about. Still keeping with my trip to Nashville I want to give a special thanks to @Ben (and his lovely wife Jess for lending him to us). He picked us up at the airport, drove us all around town and took us to not just Lynchberg but also Kentucky. John and I really owe our holiday to you - but not just for showing us around, no sir, for being fun... I mean, this guy is hilarious. I've not laughed so much in all my life (and I'm sure John feels the same). @Ben is the greatest and we both consider him a great friend... a friend for life. I think it's great too that @Maggie made it out to Nashville for the Throwdown and I think you'll all agree she's something else!

I could mention almost everyone on the site here for being awesome but instead I will name a very short few (which I feel weird doing as there were so many great people) but I need to thank @OzzyNelson for my homebrew breakfast at his place and for teaching me to speak southern. I loved meeting @Dschonn and discussing linguistics and such things. I hope you get to school in Germany and somehow find your way over to visit us here in Glasgow. Also, @JamesC - who is in fact not a complete dick afterall but the sweetest gentlemen you could ever hope to meet. Emma and I shall wear our Boise State t-shirts with pride and hope you feel part of the scottish tartan army just the same.

On top of this... thanks to everyone... you made me come back every single day and post even though I was busy. Even though I had things that needed done and people who demanded my attention. You made me love Whiskerino last time and this time and I hope to see a great deal of you again in Moustache May.

Oh yea, and Richard (marmeluk)... he's the guy who introduced me to it before the 2007 Whiskerino started. Thanks man.

Man, this caption is getting to be much bigger than I intended. I guess all that's left to say is "thanks @Emma" as without you being as cool as you are I probably wouldn't bother! xxx

it's been great talking to you and getting to know you this go-round, buddy. was even better meeting you in person, and i hope we showed you a good time here in the US (kinder egg mishaps notwithstanding... we're sorry).

amanda and i are planning on making it out to glasgow sometime in the near future. i'll be sure to let you know as plans firm up, but you're gonna have to show me some of the best scotches around. i'm excited about it already.

It was so nice to meet you in person. I remember first exchanging comments back in Moustache May 2008. Glad, too, that your holiday was fun and that you met so many good people who took care of you. If you ever get to Northern California, drop a line. I'd be happy to show you some of the sights. See you in a few months with the moustaches. In the meantime, take care.

Thanks, Rev, for being so awesome. It was great to meet you, even if it was so brief. I'm sorry that the Kinder Eggs you so carefully carried with you were crushed by some power-mad and heartless customs agent. That's no way to be welcomed to the US.

But you are awesome. keep being awesome!

Chinese Wildman says:
Drew, I can't say enough how great it was to meet you and spend even a short amount of time getting to know you. You're a class act all the way - but also a bit of a dobber.

I plan to thank you for teaching me that one by buying you a pint in your part of the world. Promise.

mackle says:
What could I possibly say to extend my gratitude to you? You are an incredibly enthusiastic user on this site - taking things to new levels, chatting whenever you have the free time and just generally being a total badass. and THEN you actually flew from Scotland to party with us?! INSANE!

I appreciate everything and I don't have the words to express it. You're a great dude and I hope to see you in May. I also hope to see you in Glasgow at some point.. as I have promised myself to stop being lame and actually get outta the country soon.

Thank you sir. Thank you.

Rev, it's been a pleasure being here with you on Whiskerino, and even better to finally meet you in person. i regret that we didn't have a chance to spend more time together at the Throwdown, but that just means we'll have to visit you and Emma in Scotland.

you're a talented guy with a great sense of humor. your enthusiasm and spirit have been most welcome.

take care brother and i'll see you soon, online at least.

hankbobs says:
Hey Revgoomba - I ended up spending a minute on the 2008 moustache may site today, looking for an old reference. I happened on my first photo I ever posted, within the first hour of ever having a moustache. My first ever comment was you, saying simply "Tee-hee!".

So, I guess I would say thanks, for making me once again feel welcome in a place like this. I remember seeing your face really early in this Whiskerino and feeling at home. Meeting you was really great, you are a giant, and incredibly awesome man. I really would love to Scotland someday, and I would definitely knock on your door if I do. You are welcome in Montana any time you make it here!

I think I'm off to bed now, take care dude. Hope to see you in May!

Dschonn says:
Thanks for the shoutout. The time spent with you ranks at or near the top of my entire Whiskerino experience. Thanks for complimenting my accent and placing it geographically. Thanks for laughing at my jokes. Thanks for listening to my ramblings. I will make every effort to come see you on your turf, and make you show me real whisky and all things that I need to see. I will definitely see you in May.

Rev, Thanks for the good times. When I explain this site to others I always end it with the fact that a select few decided to come all the way from Scotland to hang with us. It really shows the power of this community and the dedication on your part! So very glad to meet you and hope to see you in May!

Thanks for traveling overseas just to visit with us. It was great to meet you at the throwdown. Wish we had more time to chat. I'd love to have a few pints with you someday in Scotland.

Thanks for growing a beard with me. See you around.
