Ya gotta sugarcoat it.
Happy having your unfiltered way in the future.
Congratulations on your forthcoming retirement, nolo. It's good to know you're leaving the site in very capable hands. It will be interesting to see how the site might change moving forward. I enjoyed getting to know you via our interactions here. Best wishes and hopefully we'll get to make some turns together sometime.
Joan, your leadership was sublime and yet powerful. It has been a real pleasure watching you build this place and give an administrative team and membership the freedom and guidance to make this such a unique, blend of skiing information and entertainment.
Thanks for all you've done, and what you will continue to contribute.
The site must constantly change to keep up with technology but I hope the community vibe stays exactly the same. There's something pretty darn special about being able to find a member of the community at nearly every ski resort in the world who will not only show you around, but show you the very best it has to offer.
No one person can make that happen -- only a community can!
Thank you for the kind words.
Nolo, just read you're leaving your active status. Please feel free to stop bye when you slip/drive over the Bitterroots and maybe we and your hubby can play some golf or make some turns together. I of course realize what a huge commitment in time and effort you put into Epic, for what it is worth I always respected the job you performed and it was an honor skiing with you and listening and taking your sage advice. Good Luck in all your future endeavors. My Best Pete
Your and Epics influence on my skiing and life let me ski this - My deepest thanks.
All the very best to you and much success in your next endeavour.
Remember, all things must come to an end but "Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end"
Nolo, aren't you done yet?
This thread is going to get tossed into the '1st World problems' thread (he said with a big grin). You are ready for a vacation (or have you been making a list of who gets flamed first)?
Thanks for where this has been, and look forward to seeing where Epic, and you, are going.
