Thought I'd crosspost this from the original StromCacher's thread as well .
QUOTE=PO-SLOKE;720399]Well fellows , it would be me again . Yep , the one and only PO-SLOKE .
Some of you know me well . Yep , the Original PO-SLOLE that started the StromCacher back in 08 . I see the little blue Otter box is still alive and well .
I know , I know . I up and disappeared . Without being all long winded , here's the skippy . I got really really bad sick and had to move on . I had already been getting quite ill and had not mentioned it to anyone . I had to do a quick bail and sell out all I had . Not excluding all my bikes and four wheelers .
It broke my heart like no explaination could be given to sell the wonderous 08 DL1000 . Just as I got her all broken in and farkled for the big trip , my health began to fall apart , so I literally sold the farm and moved out of NC .
I am still recovering from major surgery but I am coming along quite well . I've been horribly unable to work so you can imagine how hard it has been to survive , much less consider another bike . I look occasionally online at the possible 08 DL1000's for sale with a huge hope of having another some day soon . But it doesn't look likely .
I'd like to say how much I enjoyed riding with all those here who know me and have ridden with me in the past . I recall the starting poing of the StromCachers very clearly .
It started out to be quite the chilled ride to Henderson County Toy Run in Hendersonville NC that morning . RidgeRunner , Ridir Frith and I rode along with TONS of cruiser sorts and a few sport bikes to the Henderson County Court House . That's where RidgeRunner took the very first handoff of the StromCache . Not long following that event , RidgeRunner deisgned the very first StromCahcers decals . What a cool thing that was .
But foremost of it all , I've been browsing about in the thread to see where all the little blue box has been and I am astoundingly impressed at all the fellowship amongst Stromtroopers that have joined the StromCachers status .
This riding thing is all about making great and life long friends . I am wholly honored to have ridden with some of you and and even more honored that such a different and simple cache concept has allowed so many awesome and dedicated riders to become those very aforementioned lifelong riding pals .
Keep up the good work and thank you all so much for keeping my original effort alive even in my absence . I wish you all immense success and safety in all your riding efforts and events and truly hope to see the StromCachers fellowship continue to grow .
My prayers are truly that the gospel of Jesus Christ find you all wonderfully serving him and remaining true to such a great sport and recreation as Stroming the world over .
My absolute best regards and thanks to you all .
