I'm about to join my mentors Dave, Sonny and Rick as a cruise guru. That's pretty cool! Just wanted to say thanks for tolerating me, I've enjoyed being part of Cruise-Chat family and look forward to becoming a "has been" next. How many posts before I get that status?
I can tell you now, I was a little resentful at first; who is this new kid in town, all over the place, with all the right answers? Egos can be terrible. But once I got past mine, I realized what a great guy you are. No hidden agenda; no ulterior motive; just a guy who happens to be in the business and has a passion for cruising and love for people, and for helping people, that shines through in every post.
So congratulations, "new guru"; and I look forward to becoming "has beens" together.
Well done, have always found your posts interesting & informative......and I particularly like the way that you are always honest and upfront with your posts, being more interested in giving a balanced answer to questions.
So I look forward to seeing more of your posts but now with the status of " guru "
Dwayne, I forgot you have a friend in my hometown. I'm missing the mountains, changing of the leaves and even winter and snow. As much as I love cruising, I'm gonna have to plan a trip soon back to KY. There is a lake in central KY called Lake Cumberland, beautiful place. Learned to water ski there and caught my first fish there. I can still vacation there on the water too. Think I'll check into renting a houseboat and revisit the footsteps of my youth in the near future.
Yeah, My best friend still has his Mom and Sister up in Ashland. I miss the mountains this time of year too, but just got back from vacation. May plan a trip up that way in early spring. I grew up in Grundy, Va. just a few miles from the Ky. line and about 40 miles from Pikeville. Have lived on flat land now for almost 25 years, so everytime I go back now the roads flip me out. We don't have any roads here that have signs that say "Watch for fallen rocks"
