Thanks again for putting this knife up Mike. A honorable show of support for a forum that we all enjoy and benefit from, Supporting Member or not. A site like this takes money to run. I really appreciate you doing this.

That being said, I raise the bid on the AAPK Benefit Auction knife to 225 bucks.

Thanks for the auction end reminder Mike.

Do I hear 250??? Yes you do my friend.

I raise my bid to 250 bucks.

"I get it" (and I am not referring to the knife either) if anyone here knows what I mean.

Likely too late. I lost track of time and dozed off.

If I am past the point of no return and Keith will concede, I will bid and pay 300 bucks for the AAPK Benefit Auction Knife.

Sorry for any confusion this causes but I screwed up on a cause I really stand behind and a knife, since my Dad's, mine and Mike's I would really like to have it in addition to the cash towards AAPK.

Please let me know. If it does not work out I will not be devastated. Main thing I find cool is the money towards AAPK costs and the fact the knife was put up for such reason.

...after messaging with Keith, he has agreed to concede his win and allow Jerry's bid of $300.00 to be the winning bid....so the winner of the knife is Jerry A.
::handshake:: Congrats Jerry, your Dad's knife is heading home, full circle.

Thanks to much to everyone who bid in this auction, it brought it more funds than I had hoped for, and I know Bryan will put them to good use to help keep our little corner of the Internet up and running.

Best to you all!
Mike

I am sure no one would characterize me as a man of few words. In all honesty, that is where I am at at the moment.

Thanks John my friend. What a great thing to be a part of.

Mike and Keith,

It is men such as yourself (and quite a few others not specified here) that mean the most value to me from all that I get from AAPK. The knife part is just icing on the cake and I am not referring to the auction knife obviously. Thank you sincerely my friends. Pleasure to know you both. Can't thank you both enough. That knife will be one of my most prized for what it stands for, not what it can cut. It will be proudly EDC'd and displayed.

Additional thanks to all the other bidders as well.

Bryan, the check is in the mail. Thanks again for all you do.

Regards, Jerry

The Hobo arrived safely. In addition, there was a nice hand written letter on some old valued stationary by Mike (and valued by me), contents of which are between him and I. Lets just say, I was touched and he is a good man as I had known previous.
He also added in a bonus knife, one of his modded CASE EDCs. I really love a carry that was a friends. It is a great knife and I will carry it with pride. Some good memories were put on both knives by a man I have never spoken to face to face or via phone, never met but yet consider friend. That is what we get from AAPK folks. Knives are secondary to that to me at least.
SUPPORT APPK if you are able financially.

Put some more miles on the Hobo tonight. After Mike and clan did the same. My neighbor brought me some freezer Elk Friday.
Invited him over for a few Stella's, some spicy potatoes, olive oil marinated zucchini and Elk on the grill. The olive oil, garlic and spices for the Elk was perfect. Not overdone on the marinade (or my cooking job) so the meat flavor came through.
A stellar meal with the Hobo.

Dang Jerry, that looks fantastic! Glad to see the hobo back in action, hard to beat grilled wild game.

Hey Mike,

Thanks again (and Keith) for your part in bringing the Hobo home. What a great thing to be a part of given all the different facets of benefit to all involved.
That said, on the meal I posted. I am not one to take pics and post an everyday meal. This one was far from that. Ranks in the top ten I have ever eaten. I know my way around the kitchen and the grill. Given your background, thought you would appreciate the Hobo's first use back home.

I pulled 3 separate big game species in the lottery this year. Feast or famine, most years, I and others pull none. I have a Horns Shorter than Ears Antelope (buck or doe), Buck Mule Deer and Cow Elk tag this year. If all goes well, will have many more meals like that and will certainly need some more freezers. With the water so plentiful this year, the Mule Deer Bucks will have HUGE racks.

I hope at some point our paths cross and we enjoy a meal like that my friend.

Thanks again. Regards, Jerry
