As Saddletramp so aptly put it in the insomniac thread: "2017, the year we say goodbye for now to @jclarke450 and Family. I credit the Clarkes for making the outings family fun." Well said Steve~ In talking to Jason yesterday, it was his last day at work here in AZ and is leaving this weekend to move East to Georgia Tech where he is stepping into a unique job that is perfect for his not-so-common skill set. A great opportunity that he will be great at and land him into a situation he simply couldnt refuse! He mentions after things settle down there will be weekend excursions back to AZ to visit and hopefully some camping with the CSC group. I agree with Saddletramp, the Clarkes were really the first consistent family that would venture out with the club which in turn led to other wives, girlfriends, and kids coming along for overnight runs. in my opinion, this has enriched the outings to become more social and a lot more fun. There is something about having kids around that brings the kids out in all of us and help look at things/nature with a little more appreciation. ...I know the food has definitely gotten ALOT better! Hats off to the Clarkes and what they have helped our club grow into. I can imagine that they will take advantage of the scenic Appalachian and Blue Ridge Mountains in GA. Im sure Otter can give them some good tips! Safe travels to our friends!
