What would Skip say about that?

I have been reminiscing about the past of our forum and Skip comes to mind as one of our more vocal and interesting contributors.

I decided that I really miss his sense of humor. So I decided to bring him back. In his own words.

So if you have a favorite Skipism or exchange, feel free to reference it here.

For the noobies who did not get to experience Skipisms, this should be educational for you


Who is Skip?
The SKY people - No talky posts

Typical Skipism

Happy Birthday to Skip

How many times did I shoot at Skip's Oxygen tank crossing the Mason Dixon line?

That's when the forum was a forum...and fun.

Where have all my Bluestone enemies gone Rob?

The defining Skip event was when, on April Fools Day, he posed as his daughter and, using his account here, reported his own death.

We were all sucked in and when he chimed in that reports of his own demise were likely premature, several folks got pretty mad (personally, I thought it was brilliant on several levels), but that was the epitome of Skip: He marched to and honored the beat of his own drum.

Cheers to you, Skip!

Skip went on to the great Lynchburg in the sky. Happy to say that one of my last contacts with Skip was to send him a personally autographed " To Skip" bottle of Jack Daniel's Angelo Lucchesi commemoratives signed by my pal Angelo. Wasn't too long after that that we learned of his passing.

My lasting memory of Skip will be us stuck for hours on the side of I-68 in West Virginia on the way to Mecca 3 while we waited for a two truck. We were less than 100 yards from a mile marker so it was easy for us to tell them exactly where we were. Nevertheless, that didn't keep them from being unable to find us...in part by looking in the entirely WRONG STATE! Despite the stress of the day, Skip was upbeat and looking forward to making it to Delaware to see his friends.

Cheers my friend!
