The night before the last day of RUNRYDER
Joined just 3 weeks shy of 12 years ago in 2005. I was an senior officer on a ship in Diego Garcia then. Loved going up on the bridge on night watch and log into RUNRYDER via some very expensive satellites. Would day dream of coming home and getting back to flying my helis. Little did I know that 9 months later I would retire and every morning it was up early, cup of coffee and log into RUNRYDER to start my day. Runryder led to more helicopters, more helicopter events and IRCHA every year since 2006. That led to a tent, a popup, truck camper,a camping trailer and finally a motorhome.
All that led to 11 SWARM PARTIES and all my friends there. The money RUNRYDDER has cost me makes my heart skip a beat, but I've loved every minute and would to it again.

Tomorrow I will be sad, the last day for me to log into my favorite place, my routine will be disturbed, like forgetting to take a vitamin.

Thanks for all your hard work and efforts Mark Ryder. You have valuable skills and I am sure you will land on your feet just fine.
Thank you again.

Capt. M. Hainen USMM ret.

Cheer Up, only 34 days to IRCHA, I hope Mark makes it.
UPDATE HOLD THE PRESSES--------------------------------------------


My day, month, year just got better.

Way to go Mark.

I think it would have left a pretty big hole in the online heli community.

Hope to see you at IRCHA.

I'll buy a new t-shirt if you are there and have them. My old ones are getting worn out.
