Folks, I wanted to say something about a forum member here, that most of you know.
I started a thread about trying to figure out what (cheap) action to use for a 30-06 project that I want to do with my Dad. I wasn't soliciting for a FREE action, just trying to find out a good source to BUY one..to start the project. My Dad's 83, and I sure aint getting any younger.
The project has some serious sentimantal reasons behind it that I won't go into...but suffice to say it needs to be done. My memories of Dad and I hunting (in a 1960's Alaska that doesn't exist anymore) are the fondest of my life.
Anyway, as some of you who know EKC (already) may know, this guy is one of the coolest folks on this forum. His posts are ALWAYS diplomatic (I WISH I had that skill), and never does he tend to be taken the wrong way or get on folk's badside (like I seem to sometimes). Other folks on here have also experienced his generosity and diplomacy.
This cool forum member has dug into his personal stockpile and squared me away on the project with my Dad. I thought that deserved a thread of it's own. He refuses to accept any money for it...YES, I offered repeatedly. So, in some attempt to balance the scales I'm going to dig a bunch of my own stuff out of the attic and garage and do some "pay it forward" stuff here amongst our Outdoor Supersite forum members, benefitting YOU directly if you need some of the stuff.
So, if you know of EKC, and have had good things happen to you because of him, this is a good thread to say thank you.
An inspiration to us all...not just his generosity, but his diplomacy, and well thought out/courteous posts on all subjects.
EKC is welcome at my (and my Dad's) campfire/BBQ/cold Beers anytime.
I've got another (Old Alaskan) idea about paying him back...but that will have to be forthcoming...for him to tell you about! Hehe.
So, I just felt the character of EKC deserved a thread of it's own. Many of you already know this.
