Another "COMMUNITY" story

I'm fairly new to this forum- I discovered it back in June- and have only posted on here a dozen or so times (mostly wrist shots and a few pics of my small Panerai collection). Up until last week I had never met anyone from this community. However, I was headed to Northern California for my job this past Sunday so I decided to hit up Micah, who many of you know, because he made some straps for me and has always been very gracious and patient with all of my questions. Micah and I had just a few minutes to meet up but it was my pleasure to meet him and his beautiful wife and son. He was even kind enough to bring me a strap for my 372 (pictured below). After our meeting, I had to head up to Portland, OR for a few days (again for work) and Micah suggested I meet up with a couple of great Ristis in the Portland area, Howard L and Mike C.

Howard, Mike, and I had a wonderful dinner at Wildwood restaurant in Portland. And Micah was right- two solid gents. It was great to meet them and share some pics of our watches and families. Looking forward to the next time I'm out on the West Coast.

Here's a few photos of some goodies that Micah, Howard, and Mike were kind of enough to give me. A couple of revolution mags from Howard and Mike, a strap for my 372 from Micah, and a strap from Howard for my zero. Thanks, gents! Great meeting you!

I never would have turned you loose on Howard and Mike if I didn't think you were a solid fellow too, I hope they didn't go too hard on you, those two can be a handful at the best of times wink.gif

Glad you guys had fun, and it was a blast meeting you. I only regret we didn't get to really hang out, next time you're in town hopefully we can catch a meal together and I can convince you to shuffle off those other watches you own and get some more Panny's instead wink.gif
