Whiskerino 2009


takes a mean pic.

How do I start this…

I mean, what can I say? This has been one of the best experiences I have ever had. I was chatting with a friend (Webelrino from 2005) and we were talking about how so many people will not understand what this means to us, what it means to accomplish something that takes four months, something that changes you in every which way. It’s a great thing.

What if everyone experienced a community like ours? Having each other encourage one another to do something great everyday. I will leave Whiskerino with sadness. I have not been looking forward to this day. Here I am exiting something I have been committed to for four months, it doesn’t feel right. But, it must come to an end.

So with that, I want to thank everyone on here who has encouraged me to do better and be better. I have received much advice about being a father, since that is coming up in my life. @KimJongIllness and @MatthewMoore, thank you.

@Mackle, I don’t know how you came up with something so great, but thank you for doing so. You have brought many brothers together to grow and show. You’re a good man, and the most humble man I think I’ve ever met. Many people look up to that. Have fun rockin’ Nashville.

To everyone else, thanks for taking this journey with me. I have shown you where I work, where I live, who I hang out and whom I am married to. I hope every single one of you has enjoyed following me as much as I have enjoyed following you. Please keep in touch.

Now, I leave you with how my first day started, I welcomed you in and now I am saying goodbye.

Love you guys.
Beards for life.

I hope your recruitment efforts are met with success.

Fatherhood is great. You are right to be excited and smart to have solicited input from other dads. I hope you and your wife enjoy with great intention the last days leading up the baby.

May the Lord keep you well, Rob.

That caption was beautifully (and perfectly) said. I think you were able to describe exactly what everyone is feeling at this very moment, and that's not the easiest thing to do. It has been a real pleasure growing along side you during this 4 month journey. Let's hope this isn't the end. Take care, sir.

He stood in the snow for hours before realizing that the person with the camera was gone, probably sipping on cocoa with a loved one. He stuck a finger in his ear to attempt remove all the fish water that was still spending time in his head. He looked into the distance, knowing that in 50 years he would still remember what happened in this very spot.
