Cascade meets FeelTheLove in California

I met Kirk for drinks and dinner in Sacramento on Saturday after he'd finished up his job in Benicia. It seemed like a great chance for both us, being not too far away from each other, to meet a BW person....IN person, for a chat.

Our internet personae can be different from what we are in person. Sometimes he's pretty abrasive and rough here, as many of us are, and I don't know how I come across, but....

Kirk is a really fantastic guy, it was really great to talk about politics, Mercedes, world affairs, oil, the BWOT forum, girls, and other stuff. Gained some real insight about his way of thinking, and his approach here.

Neither he, nor I, had met anybody from BWOT personally before, and we both wondered what would happen.

He's well worth getting to know, I'd consider him a real friend now, and would urge you guys to meet each other if you can.

I have met a bunch of people on the two W123 Benzworld/Mercedes diesel drive gtg events, in Northern California, about 25 people, I think, and would urge you all to go to those, where the focus was narrower (just the cars)

But I thought you guys (and a couple of gals) should know, it's really cool to
know that we exist beyond the BWOT rough and tumble persona, that we present.

Hopefully, he'll return to Calif. some day, and we can talk some more. He's a really great guy.

I'd look forward to meeting others of you personally, though we are so scattered around the globe, it isn't wouldn't be so easy.

I'm afraid that if we all knew each other the OT would never be the same. You can't maintain your OT persona w/ someone you really know, IMO.

Jayhawk are you worried that will find out that you're actually 13? I still can't believe that you're older than most people here

Cascade's insistence that we meet in a public place ruined my plan to kill him and assume his identity. Imagine my disappointment when I discovered he owned (since new) a cherry '91 AMG 560SEC.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

I would not have been able to afford the KY Derby since my lending deals went to the trash at that time besides I am probably on a no fly list.
