    Ruide,

    I am sorry to hear about your health issues and you will be in our prayers.

    I too would like to thank you for your contributions. We are new to the pop-up world and were overwelmed with everything. Your posts and blogs have been a wealth of information and have put us at ease with our new pop-up.

    Be well.

    Here Here! I join the toast! He Ruide... I have prayed for you since I first heard about your health woes... I'm so sorry you had to go through so many issues, and so glad you seem to be doing better. We'll keep the prayers coming. Thanks for all the terrific help you have given us poppers over the years.

    I want to thank all the folks that have posted since my last post. I do appreciate all the thoughts and prayers.

    I do have good news to report - You should know I celebrate little milestones. I got on the scale this morning and I've gained back 10 of the 50 pounds I lost... and I can no longer count my ribs - Whoopee.

    Now in preparation for camping I do need to work on my upper body strength so I can pull out and push in the bunk ends [CC]

    Thanks again and take care.

    Ruide

    I will add to the others by thanking you for all that you do for us on the Portal. My guess is that there are very few new members that do not eventually find themselves finding their answers from your posts or by going through your galleries on your PUP web site.

    I remember that HeRuide's PUP site was the first one that I bookmarked when I started learning about PUPs, even before I owned one.

    Super happy to hear that you appear on the right track and love your spirit that you are already prepping for some camping trips.

    Here's my hope/prayers that you only continue to get better!

    Gregg

    He Ruide is missing in action. I had his mailing addy in Ohio and sent him a note a few months ago and it was returned. I sure hope he is OK , but it's not looking good....

    I am starting to think he has gone to a better place and to do more mods to his heavenly popup.
