Per several requests, I took the lead post from this thread and made it a "Sticky" at the top of the page. It reads the same. Please post any replies on this thread.

Thanks so much for the reception y'all gave it. I didn't intend it to be an official mission statement for the forum, but in reality, the response shows that I expressed in words a guiding philosophy that most of us hold here at the Outpost. That is most gratifying. I think we're on the right track Bro's, and Sis. Keep the flame burning.

KEWL BRO. MMM Glad to see ya still have the same soft spot in your heart I do, for this tribal thing.

Even the ones that have caused grief and pain in have contributed to the "Spirit" of this forum.

I cain't hold anything against them. We would not be were we are today without their influence...

I agree, Mike. Bygones are bygones. Life's too short to hold a grudge. And beside, for the most part, grudges hurt the one's who hold them more than the ones they are held against. Though, like a rock tossed in a pond, the expanding rings from the guile that often comes from grudges can reach out and touch others.

It's more fun to have fun and laugh and cut up and enjoy the good.

P.S. Hey Mike, I say "cain't" too.

Great message in these words. From the first fires of the NT gatherings word and deed have spread. While the spread is a thing of wonder and the growth a thing of pride let us not forget from where and why we came ........................Let us not forget that we all built our first fire at some point................Its not the skill level of the maker but the pride in the piece regardless of the skill of the maker.........Its what makes us one.........................

Glad to find "principles before personalities" is practiced here..Seems like you tribalists know a thing or two about live and let live.. that is really a good code..
Ever since man stared into glowing embers, the die was cast.. did ya ever think ya was hooked before ya was ever born ???
It feels good to "fit" someplace !!!

Thanks again..( flashinthepan )

Thom - glad to see you here and a hearty welcome. As Dana so eloquently put it there is room for all.

And yes I'm sure that there are others who feel they were born to "IT" whatever your personal it is

(it is that "one thing" that Curly mentioned in City Slickers.)

I once asked Chuck about a problem I was having with a leather item I was trying to make. He called me and said, "I can either tell you how to do it right, or I can spend a couple of hours telling you what you did wrong." After he helped me, I realized that I had gone wrong so many ways that it might have been a two hour session to review the mistakes.

His DVDs are still the best training videos I've ever run across.

I have a photo of a knife I made, for which Chuck made a beautiful sheath. Id post it, but Im technically challenged. I have it resident in my photos on an iPad my granddaughter out grew when she upgraded to a phone that costs more than my car. Id gladly share it, but someones going to have to talk me through it, in the same kind of terms a guy or lady at the airport uses when he or she has to talk someone whos never flown a plane, safely down to the ground because the pilot has become incapacitated at 9,000 feet.

That's exactly why we're trying to avoid helping you.

"Ok, Dana, is the computer plugged in?"

"Plugged into what?"

"The electric outlet."

"No. Does it need to be?"
