Paul, first thing I did when I got to the Un was to look for you because you're one of the always-there fixtures. Really missed not getting to say hi and visit. See ya in the Carolinas next year.

Love and healing wishes sent to you, Paul. We truly did miss you at the Un. And for my part, if you crossed the longitude where the Un was, especially by several hundred miles, you made it and I think it should count. Surely we have THAT much love and understanding among us.

Now, unless I missed it up above, what an incredible man Cary Littell is. He just closed up Marin BMW, his passion over the past 10 years, and something into which he poured his life, love and every penny he had. He is now unemployed and yet he has the heart to give outwardly to all of us again, this time in helping a fallen brother.

Cary, I don't know where you're going to end up, but whatever it is, we will support it and you. We don't ever forget who founded this board, and who nurtured it through its early growing years. Once again, Cary, your true self shines through.


Cary, Gleno, Rodger, Paul,
Godspeed, my brothers.
We will never forget you.

+1. I don't know Cary, having never met him. But he certainly appears to be the kind of person I'd like to be able to refer to as a friend. I hope I'll get to meet him some day (but not necessarily under the same circumstances as Paul). This board has time and time again shown itself to be a true family. Thanks for letting me be a part.

Yes, it had also occurred to me what a gesture this was on the part of Cary, to help out despite his own troubles. Truly, a mark of the man.

+1! Paul signed up, paid his $30 dollars, arrived early on the West coasts and was at Topaz Lake in "spirit"! I believe we still have 5 members that have been present at each UN.

Bob, I'm glad your problems did not mess up your trip. Again, the bmwst brotherhood is always there when needed.

The Unrally? I dunno... In my mind "almost" is not good enough... but thanks for the considerations...
