    Hey guys. The whole being a part of thing has been fun. But I am a very realistic person and I know that playing the bass is probably not going to be a big part of my future. So I guess I'll stop now while I have only spent a little cash on it and just say goodbye. I have to get prepared for the military anyway. I guess I wasn't being very rational trying to pick this bass playin stuff up. There is no place for it in the SEALS. Peace my friends. Bye.

    Well...sorry to hear that...good luck in the future, dude. Take care.

    I dunno, it's always kinda sad to see someone leave talkbass...whether i'm close with them or not...

    It can be done, if you want to. How many worthwhile things come easily? I played when I could when I was in the Air Force, though I'm sure the SEAL's put more demands on your time. Good luck with whatever you decide, glad you could at least give it a try.

    Wow, a SEAL, huh? Color me extremely impressed. That's an incredible adventure you're about to embark upon, and I wish you the best.

    Stop by and let us know what's up...I'd love to hear about SEAL stories!

    Good luck!

    Have fun at BUDs. It'll be the only time in your life when the highlight of your day is having 10 other guys pee on you, cuz it's the only time you actually get to be warm.

    Good luck in your very cool gig. But don't forget if you've got the music in your blood you can come back to it later.I put music/bass/guitar aside for years while I pursued a business career ( way more boring than your thing). And now I'm back and playing and gigging more than I ever have.

    So, maybe it's a postponement rather than a permanent goodbye.

    Hey! Maybe you'll be on "Survivor" in 40 years.

    Hey, one of our friends is on the survivor australia show!!!

    Anyway, good luck bass. Im sorry to hear that your quitting, but if thats what you feel you need to do, then cool. But keep the bass, just in case you wish to pick it up in the future.

    And wow, the seals? Geez! Good luck! We expect you to come back all buff and stuff! Come back and say hi as soon as you can!

    Good luck! And remember, have fun, no matter how hard it will be in the military!
