A man I knew best and is where he belonged. He will surely be missed. Sail away my friend. :(

I haven't been to the site in some time so I stumbled in to see what Cracker Larry was up to.

I was sittin at work earlier today thinking about a story CL told. Not sure why, but it made me keep laughing.

He sure had a way of dragging you into a story and left you no chance of leaving until until he was finished.

RIP, CL

Damn.... I haven't been active on here in a long time and didn't know.

I came over here to grab a link to his OD build for someone asking how long it took to do a build the right way.

Never had the chance to meet him, or really interact with him directly at all, but I read most every word he wrote on that build thread and his others.

It was never going to happen, but it sure would have been nice to have a beer with the guy.
