Hello Everyone

Postby raven » Sat Dec 21, 2013 6:54 pm

Hey All, Just thought I give you all a shout and say "Hello" ;) . It's been a Really Long while since i last posted here ... Yeah, I know :rolleyes: .

It's been crazy here in SC since I left Good Ole Colorado :( . It was really hard for me to handle the change... Major Culture Shock :eek: . I'm finally getting used to it here, but I Still Miss My Colorado and Mountains :) .

No matter how long I may be away from here, I always manage to find my way back and I always find myself missing the forumites here and the "Old Crew". Not sure how many of the "Old Crew" is still around??? I notice there are a Ton of new members I don't recognize. To the New Members that don't know who I am... "Hello" :) ... I'm "raven" and one of the older members. It looks like I have some catching up to do. Thanks for listening, Take Very Good Care, and Be Safe Always.

God Bless :)

Hello raven,

I'm fairly new to the forum, and I can definitely empathize with you about moving. Over the summer I left a small town at the foothills of the Washington Cascades and moved to an Island in the Puget Sound. Talk about culture shock. :( Hope to see more posts from you in the future. Take Care,

Welcome back Gil. Hear you on the "culture shock", although I have to say mine has been entirely pleasant.

Hi Paul, Good to hear from you Sir :) . I honestly didn't think it would affect me much, man was I wrong :rolleyes: :o !!! I am finally getting used to the folks and can actually somewhat understand what they're saying when they talk granted that they don't talk to fast :p . From what I understand most folks don't really care for the area we live in, but that was also the case for the area I lived back in Colorado. I just roll with it and take it one day at a time :) . Take Very Good Care My Friend and Be Safe Always.

God Bless :)

Hey Roman, Good to be back and hopefully I can stay a bit longer this time ;) . As far as new toys... haven't grabbed a spydie in a while. I've acquired a few other folders and these toys :D ...

This is a sword I designed and had build by Miller Brothers Blades (this thing is a BEAST!!! :D )

Take Good Care and Be Safe Always.

Glad to see you again, Raven. :) It has been a long time (May perhaps?). I remember you posting about going to the annual BLADE show--did you end up going?

Anyway, glad to see you've been able to pick up a few new goodies along the way. :D The custom sword is pretty cool. Did you go with M4 perhaps?

Anyway, take care and hope to see you around (more often!) :D

Hey Michael, Yeah I did make it to the Blade Show and had a great time as usual. The wife and I usually help Gus Cecchini (GTC Knives) and hang out at his table, which is just a bit down from the Spyderco Booth :) .

As for the goodies, I've actually had the rifle and scope for a while, just never got around to posting them. As for the sword, it's made from 5160 spring steel. Like I mentioned earlier, this thing is a beast. It's actually 5/16" thick... a sharpened chunk of steel :eek: :D !!!

I hope to keep up this time and post more often :p . Take Good Care and Be Safe Always.

God Bless :)
