I'll bet when mackle made the first beard contest site way back when, he never could've imagined what it would evolve into... an experience so amazingly weird and awesome that words can't really do it justice.

Thanks to everyone for playing along.
Thanks to the friends I have made along the way.
Thanks for the memories.
Thanks in advance for keeping in touch.

Thanks to you sir. I've been a fan of your work since day one. I know that probably sounds weird, but when us newbies joined in the middle, it didn't take long to see which alums were bringing the most heat. You are legend, and rightfully so. Thanks for sharing so much magic with us. It has been an honor. Good luck in your new spot, and in all future adventures.

Look at you, acting all modest like you aren't a celebrity on here.

Seriously, though, thanks for posting quality and sticking it out this month. When I get out to Californy, I'll be sure to look you up. Take care.

can you get me more prints?

also i find it extremely bizarre that facebook brought us closer together, not MM. but in a way, it was both. you're a truly awesome dude. your photots and legacy intimidated me for so long. people love your work. and i'm the type of guy that compares myself to people. needless to say - knowing you knew renaud was good enough for me - like i could get to know this zackle character. and i did, but not in the way i thought i did. but i'm grateful nonetheless.

i really enjoyed our time in palo alto (derp) and sorry for the lameness of the dollars snafu. but we had some good memories eh, mate?

hope to see you IRL someday soon and like i said, hit me up if and when you're up for that cross-country scenic drive. i'll be your wingman.

I expect to see you in compromising positions sometime in the (near?) future.

I read back on one of my early W'rino 2007 cutouts: "Don't ever stop doing this," you said.

Thanks for the advice.

You're west coast. We will hang out more. It will happen.

Thanks for being here, for being the super creative and funny guy that you are, and for inspiring me to do more.

I would like to get up your way before the year is out. Somehow.

Take care friend.

@zackle - You really got me to think about photography when I first started MM'ing a few years ago. Sorry we haven't met in person. One day. Cheers!

I've stolen 8 millions of your style and never returned the favor. Let's just say I owe you a drink and a carton of Benson & Hedges. Even Stevens.

We need to talk more on the internets and if the time comes, in real life., I'm on gchats and AIM (aschmidt608 at gmail and drudgeons on AIM). It was really fun getting to hang out with you and Gavin at the TD last Feb. I hope that's not the end.

Take care and we'll be seeing each other.

Zackle, you're a talented, classy, awesome-hogger. I'm glad we are Internet buds. You know where to find me digitally.

Luckily by moving across the country you've greatly increased our chances of hanging out IRL as I have to go to SF yearly if not more.

See you soon.

Thanks for being one of the all time super-greats. You've managed to create and maintain your own individual style, and I envy your ability to constantly crank out amazingly creative and unique photos.

You'll be missed greatly.

Mackle says:
What can I do to get on the Vanbert email list? Can you clue me in somehow?

You and Renaud invented Gross Lips™ - I will forever be indebted to you for that.

I don't want to give you a long goodbye because, frankly, I don't think it will be a goodbye. I read your Tumblr, your Twitter, your Flickr and you work with Renaud now in SF. So, why wouldn't I totally hang out and continue the awesome? I will.

Pretty much what everybody else said. You have style in spades and you showed me new ways of thinking about photography. And your pictures made me laugh to beat the band. Some of them, anyway.

Take care, and visit Portland before I leave it.

well now that you are about 3 hours away, saying goodbye seems foolish.

since i see you all over the interwebs anyways, ill just say see you later because that actually might happen. im hoping the rest of team #renaud soon follows your suit.
