I think it's well deserved. I've learnt loads from this site and enjoy reading not only your articles but the things written and submitted by all members. I thought I knew a lot about Bushcraft being ex forces but this site has taught me loads of new skills, and most importantly has reset my attitude. Don't spend too much time thanking us members, take the time to give yourself a large pat on the back for your achievements.
