Congratulations Old Man!  Sounds like all your work is more significant than the Big Bend honchos wanted others to believe.


Well we will have to keep presidio and elhombre apprised of the situation  :icon_eek: but I do applaud you for having an open conversation with her, maybe it will help.  I have felt a bit of thawing of the relationship in the last year or so.

I'm starting to feel some love ... :engel016:

Congrats!  You should be honored for what you do, especially this web site.

Not only is this simply a place for people who love the area to share stories but it is the single most definitive place to gather information about Big Bend (and surrounding areas).  I don't think the park could maintain a site that has as much info as this site.  It can't be feasibly done.  This site does it because of the volunteers, the dozens of people who read it daily and answer questions and give opinions over and over.

I probably hit the BNP site once for every 9 or 10 times I check this site.  Usually to see the map to understand where someone is in their trip report.

Your site and your work, Casa Grande and all those other regulars are helping to preserve BB.  Using your site I can make the most out of my trips.  This makes for the best possible experience for me and my son.  This, in turn, puts some West Texas dust in our veins so to speak.  Although we're 8 hours away and only out there maybe once a year, we are suddenly concerned, we're advocates, we're fiercely protective of that big bend in the river.

Thanks everyone.....The family and I went to the Museum yesterday so I recorded the audio coming from the ear phone.  I sound like a douche and the quality stinks because I used my phone to record, so sorry for the background noise and the douche baggery....enjoy

For whatever it's worth, my photo at the Texas History Museum made the Dallas Morning News. :-)  Kinda neat, I guess.

Casa Grande,

I know you're likely a modest guy...but it is a big deal and you should be proud.  The picture is great, it's really neat hearing your interpretation of Big Bend and all the stories of the guys on here. 

It's really cool reading all the responses when someone posts a trip report.  Most of you have probably walked that same trail numerous times but I can just imagine you hanging on every word and reliving that hike as you read some rookie's report on it. 

I will be making my 3rd trip this fall (4th if you count when I was a small, small kid) and although I won't be going until it starts to cool a little bit (Nov?), I am already reading the reports, looking at pictures and starting to plan it in my mind.  I check this site daily! 

To see one of you get your picture or story printed outside BBC is a big deal to me.  I'm glad you get the recognition and just think; someone that's never been out there might go because they saw that picture!

Depends on your definition of "paid" I guess.  I'm satisfied, for now, does that count?
