My Friend Dan'sBuds condition is not improving at all... Truth is its not going to... Its Doutful he will ever make it home... He can't continue to fight... The odds have been stacked against him for a while...
Dan is a good Friend and Mentor... His evil eye and kind manor is well known... If you interacted at all you just knew he was straight up... Without a Doubt... Just couldn't help but to like the guy right off the bat... For 5 years Dan kept me tucked away safely under his wing... Our public communications were limited but we exchanged thousands of private messages here and txt... Every aspect of growing was discussed and explained... If he made a change in his systems that change would quietly happen in my garden too.... He took a personal interest in my grows and took a lot of time for me... My very best friend that I never knew face to face... Just a wonderful man... He kept me on point when he could... After this hurricane and losing the a.c. fan on a 109 degree day things have gone sideways... I have questioned a lot... Weather or not I could continue to grow or not... Without that support I always have had from Dan... I realise that if that were the case and I folded right now... He would have spent all of that valuable time for nothing... Through out our conversations and detailed instruction over the years Dan laid out a plan he wanted to follow... His shop was going to grow... He wanted me to do the same thing... I call it the Dan Plan... Its simple.. 4 veg in flower rooms with clones and moms in another room... Dan wanted me to come back and just blow it up... A few friends are restocking me as we speak... Moms... So here it is... I will be independent and growing independently... Maintaining and building systems until I have that plan working... Right here where I started. Dan gave me the layout and timing... Anything less from me would be a tragedy of faith and trust... His time wasn't spent in vain... Dan paved the road to Ganga Heaven for both of us.. He laid it all out for me... And it has been nothing short of an honor and esteme plesure being friends with DansBuds.... So Dan is a Diesel head for sure... He gave me a lot if beans... Part of his collection... I'm popping them all... The Dan plan day one.... Lets do this
I just read OGDW's post on Unc's thread. The good of this is that the torture that he has gone through in this last year has ended. What a stunner. We were of similar ages. It's very sobering to understand that life can change that quickly.
I know you two were close. Hug everyone in your family tight and stay as safe as you can for them. Best wishes Aspen
