Farewell to All
« on: August 14, 2020, 02:23:22 PM »
Good afternoon all!

Instead of just commenting on HM's post, I figured I would write my own farewell to each of you. I haven't been as active as I once was, but I continue to visit and "check in" to see what everyone is up to.

This site has paved the way for me to meet people I otherwise never would have had the opportunity to meet.
I've formed relationships with some that I continue to speak to daily, hourly sometimes. It's created relationships that have been bonded closer than some family.

I met one of my closest friends ever in my life through this site, traveled thousands of miles together, and talked daily, the texts never stopped, and unexpectedly had to carry his casket as we laid him to rest.
Who were the first ones that came to my side during that difficult time? Talkhunting members did. Those guys I still talk with daily. This site is the only reason for such.

After being here for a decade of the dozen years TH has been around this place will always hold a special spot in my heart, forever. Stories I will tell to my kids and hopefully, if God allows, my grandkids, about the men I met here and the miles traveled I hope will brighten up their eyes in the way it has brightened mine.

To each of you, I say so long. If you're on social media you can look me up @ Zach Long. My profile pic is me holding a dead longbeard (go figure  @--0--0105 ).

Until we speak again...

Thank you so, so much for the memories!
ZLong

It's been a great ride Zack, I have enjoyed the time spent together and getting to know each other along with many others here on TH. I will keep in touch. Until we meet again, be safe and may God Bless you my friend.
