Whiskerino 2009

Furricane

is worthy of being followed.

The day the beards cried.

Rest in peace whiskerino. You were a good friend.

In all seriousness, I can't say enough good things about this site, and the people here. I love all you guys, and I love the creativity you all put into this. It really made this very special.

I thank you all for welcoming this new blood into the fold.

Thank YOU for joining our weird little beardo meetup. Whiskerino 2009 would never have been the same without Furricane! You are legend / alumni and a rock solid dude in my mind. Thanks for bringing the fury with your photos all the time and inking yourself with this creation for all time. I never say never (except for right there) so I am sure we will meet again.

You have brought so much here. Great photography and a meaningful glimpse into your life. Wish we had time to hang at the throwdown, bummed about that. You have been one of the greats here and I looked for your shots each day and was never disappointed. Good luck in all you do and especially in your coming marriage! i will never never forget that proposal shot. One of truly greatest moments here!

This is quite a sad day indeed. It was good to meet you at the Throwdown, even though you beat me in the bowling. Thanks for being a part of the King Beard Force, and for having such wonderfully creative photos. I've been following you since Guy Fawke's day, your creativity has been an inspiration. Also thanks for bringing your Flip to the Throwdown, I'm glad you captured so many great moments from that weekend on video.

mOtke says:
"There are a few things I want to say here. Ok. First of all, I feel like I barely knew you. We dated for like four months, and then you left me. I feel all alone. Why did you get into that car? Why? I mean, you were so nice, and every day we talked, and I really liked you."

*silence* *maybe a tumbleweed or ghost*

"Well, I'm going to go now. You just stay here. I love you."

He walked away, knowing he could never get those 4 months of his life back, knowing he would never want to do so.

@mOtke, I will return to you ... one day. You were my first love.

I'm glad we could talk hats in person. You have a really cool collection and someday I might too. I might just hit you up for pipe advice, so be prepared. I enjoyed our conversations, both online and face-to-face.

Thanks.

as much as i enjoyed your photos and all that other stuff, i gotta say my favorite moment with you was when we were talking about accents at the bowling alley and you busted out with the cajun.... man, that was hilarious. i find that kind of stuff so funny. but really you were a really awesome part of whiskerino this year and i was happy that you got to join us for the fun. see ya around dude.

Anyone with a skull-beard tattoo is alright in my book. Skull-beard and pink scarf, even betterIt was good meeting you at the throwdown, even if only briefly.

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