Well Gentlemen, it has been a complete honor and privilege to share these last 120 days with you as we've grown and shown our beards together. I've enjoyed every minute of it, and although I was unable to attend the throwdown, I do feel like I've gotten to know some of you rather well.

I thought it would be appropriate to say thanks to some people...but before I begin a big shout out to #team-renaud for welcoming me with open arms and being the most kickass team of all Whiskerino.

Thanks to @jnonfiction for first introducing me to Whiskerino two years ago. Seeing the creativity and community was something I longed to be a part of, and thankfully was able to with this one. Your genius knows no bounds, my friend.

Thanks to @motke, @ulaocealleigh, and @folliclejuju for regularly blowing my mind and coming up with tons of spectacular photos.

Thanks to @miguelito, @andrew, @soulglo1976, and @justjamey for being a part of the 'early morning crew', as well as taking spectacular pics. You made my mornings at work always start off well creatively.

Special thanks to @thatguy and @mattyc for always commenting on my pics. You guys really helped me feel a part of the community early on.

A big shout out to everyone else I followed. I enjoyed watching your progress and seeing your creativity and beards grow and show: @furricane, @wondermade, @9schwander, @ozzynelson, @zackle, @sirwalshington, @vanbert, @shularbrau, @daniel, @grapes, @tolleson, @irishsquire, @johnnyrebellious, @renaud, @spoonyb, @blackbeard, @flainez, @yourfavorite, @lg3, @benfrank, @burney, @pip, @mikedemonk, and @elldub.

Finally, an enormous thanks to @mackle. You created this monster, and have brought hundreds of beards from all around the world together over the course of 4 Whiskerinos. Thank you good sir for the countless hours you've spent on this baby over the past 7 years. My hat is off to you, and I will King you alone today.

To anyone else I may have forgotten (and everyone else), it has been a pleasure.

Sir Walshington says:
Insanely long, but made me happy. I have also been a regular to your page and enjoyed your shots. Loved getting to know your city through it's wall art, a very creative take. As a beard who failed to attend Whiskerino, I am with you. Thank you for the past four months of fun and brotherhood. Thank you and godspeed.

I think there will be alot of longcaptionng today. well done, sir. I didn't know Jnon brought you in. it would have been cool to have had a way to show who sired who on here. I think @sariebell was talking about that on nametags at the throwdown. reading like Robberfly via Jnon.

at any rate, farewell for now and best wishes right back.

Somehow, I find it hard to believe this was your first Whiskerino. You are at home in a beard.

@gragaband, I was unaware of the magic of Whiskerino until I saw my friend @jnon take part in it.

Well, you just dove right in. I'm impressed. The entire four-month run of '07 was me trying to get used to being a part of an internet community, and then I had to relearn everything in '09. Good show, man.
