As always, you are an uplifting person to talk to, read posts from, and meet in person.
My wife and I noticed YOU before anyone else at the convention (kinda hard to miss a guy with “motivational quote signs” pinned to his suit coat), and are darned glad that we got the chance to meet you.
It made me realize that not all central Illinois people are “boring farmer types”. LOL!!
(just kidding John and others from there)
The encourafing words idea is Great and one of the things that has been the biggest assets of this website for me.
Good idea and thanks,
P.S. If your idea of “failing” is what you are doing now, then I hope to get an “F” in my REI education.
