primitiveaddictions photos downloadWhen we achieve something, it's easy to forget to thank the people that helped us. So I just want to thank my friend and mentor in the ways of the "malfunctioning moral compass" @jmbushcraft for all his help in preparing for the guide exam, his endless humor and his deep understanding and passion for the industry we work in.
