I think Cypherian was toasting Jim Norman with a scotch ( post 35 ), so we're really not off topic.

So I want to thank the moderators that do a great job leading by example and keeping things in line as well as the participants who follow their lead. Thank you!!!
Nice, and agree wholeheartedly. Didnt discover this Forum until after buying a used 17B. Really helped with learning the nuances in pulling a trailer as well as helping decide what we needed in a new one.

Or, I would have one of the many nice blends too. There are a few, though my preference is definitely a Single Malt, and especially those from the Isle of Islay.
Scotch Snob :} LOL

Um Yeah I was toasting CPA for his promotion:}

I had stumbled on the forum before we saw our first Escape. The owners told us about the forum and all the information on build sheets and refrigerators. So I spent an intense time on the forum and learned about the good and the bad quickly, and ordered our trailer. It has continued to be a valuable source of information and discussion, and I read it daily while waiting for delivery, and I suspect I will continue after delivery when the fun begins.

My personal thanks to the moderators and the excellent job they do on this forum. The forum has so much value but it's value is greater still for all the advice and time you so willingly share. I will raise a glass to all of you!

I'll drink to that Jim, on FGRV, recently allowed a discussion on the dreaded firearms topic to run its' course by providing a couple of tactful low key comments when a reminder was helpful. When the thread first started I thought for sure it would end in a shooting match.
