Godspeed, Karl.

I've been away for a while & one of the first things I noticed on my return was the passing of CS. He was a giant In the SAK community. His knowledge was virtually limitless and his willingness to share it was boundless. Whenever you saw his name you knew something of value, something of interest was going to follow. His unstinted willingness to share his knowledge w/the SAK community was unparalleled. I can only assume that his willingness to give of himself extended not only to the SAK community but to his family & to the community at large.
Farewell CS! Thank you for all you have done. You will be sorely missed & ever remembered by all those who knew you.

Been doing some work in the photo galleries in the Wiki recently

It's very poignant - as so many images have come from the collection and camera of our great friend ColoSwiss (as Grant pointed out in this thread)

However it is a wonderful legacy for him to leave for us - and for all Wiki users and SAK fans out there.

Thanks CS - I hope you are looking down on us and smiling

I have been away for a long time, and it is indeed a sad news to hear about CS passing. 


For those years when I was active, CS has always been generous sharing his knowledge, and like Huntsman mentioned, I was constantly amazed with the contribution he made to the SAKwiki, even when I was away and trying to find references in SAKwiki.


My deep condolences to his family and friends, may he RIP with all his favorite MTs right next to him.

Been over a year now.
I keep bumping into Carl's posts.

Losing him meant losing an important piece of the place we call our internet home.

He's not forgotten... At all.

Same! I've gained several pearls of wisdom over the last year from his past posts.  What a great legacy to leave others.

I've said this before:
 - As well as his warmth, knowledge and helpfulness in this forum

Every time I see those photos in the Wiki of SAKs, with what I assume is Colorado sandstone and sunshine - I think of him :)
And there are lots of them!!  :tu:  :D
