What started out as a total novice build thread and turned into the biggest clusterfuck has come to and end.

I was nudged to check out RDP by a buddy that’s employed in the marine industry. I was just getting my feet “wet” so to speak, and was looking for guidance, tips, shit, I dunno... some fucking HELP!

After googling the living hell of the inter webs, I found RDP, and wound up reading a bunch for a couple months. Next thing I know I started a build thread.

one thing led to another and I had managed to befriend a couple of folks, alienate a few others and was authoring a sort of a polarizing thread. (Somewhat of a parallel to the flat earth idiot that just died last week)😳😳😳😳

Next thing I know I’m traveling all over the damned U. S. of A, as some sort of correspondent documenting all my travels.

It’s weird how life works. People who I looked up to didn’t really hold up their end, and those I went to bat for couldn’t quite swing hard enough.

Meanwhile, I’ve figured out that the only life I have lead is my own. I don’t have to write about it, take pictures of it happening to remember it. I just have to live it.

I’m going to keep living my best life. I’m going to keep taking advantage of the opportunities that I happen across, and continue skipping over the pitfalls.

ive met some of the best folks this world has to offer through this forum, and also had the opportunity to meet some of the worst. To know the difference is what sets it all apart 😎

Good luck, fair seas.

WTF?? What the hell happened in Havasu?



Live your life as you have, to the best you can. Do what you know. Enjoy the people around you. Dont try and change to make others happy, or listen to empty promises. But DONT stop posting!! Just look right through the bull shit and do what you do.

Whatever is going on dont let it get to you, and especially dont let it push you away from what you love in life. Just dont get caught up in the "internet life". You have a great group of friends, dont let the "internet friends" pull you away from the reality of the ones that care!!

No matter what you decide, I hope you stick around to share your experiences. Fuk everyone that dont give fuk!!

Well.....bye


😁


I always liked your posts for the most part. The drunkin rants were fun and the knowledge and insight were always good. It's the self righteousness that are the turn off. This post is a great example, are you really so important to this site that you need to post a goodbye thread? Now if you named names it might be worth the entertainment.

He will be back! And when he returns i sure hope he shares all the stories again.
These types of post crack me up. Bye, I'm outta here, only to leave a thread going. Why not just, cya guys in a bit. Taking a break from this place to get back to life. It's all good either way, just always find them kind funny. Almost like a HEY LAM ask me to stay type of post.

I talked to Sean last week.
He will not be back. While time usually resolves conflicts, I don’t see Sean posting again on RDP.
This have anything to do with the Abaco deal that never materialized? Seems about when the quiet started.

The forum are you make em to be...

Sometimes they go your way, and sometimes they go against you.

I thought it was pretty cool when pretty much everyone here offered support to the guy when his house burned down...

Ya do what ya gotta do.

Peace.

While I know the answer, I am not going to post it. I am going to respect Sean’s privacy and not post what I know.

Later.....Some people take forums to seriously and he was one of them, a know it all and opinionated. ......Take the site for what it is, just don't make it your life.....
This. I dont understand it either why people take the forums so seriously. To me they are place to come and go. Kinda like a bar but at the comfort of your home. Hang out, socialize, share information.
If its something else, I'm wondering if there is a secret new club these guys are going to.
