    The Moose is Loose - CLT Bound!

    A few of you know this already, but for those who don't, I want to pass along some news...

    I started a new job back in March, and while I've been working in NYC, the plan all along was that I would be based in the Charlotte, NC office. That time has come, and I'm getting ready to leave Long Island and head south. I hit the road next week, and after going to the Cup race at Pocono, I'll be driving down to Charlotte.

    It's a great company and the folks have been terrific. I had a chance to visit Charlotte back in May to check out the office and the city, and it seems like quite a place. I'm looking forward to new places to visit and photograph - I expect to spend some time at CLT and the museum at the airport, as well as exploring the surrounding area. And it's close enough that I should be able to get back to NY when something really cool is expected.

    It should be quite an adventure!

    Glad to hear it! Now we have a reason to come by Charlotte ;)
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    I'm looking forward to seeing your spotting and Air Show photos from down in NC

    Moose, you'll be very sorely missed by a lot of folks up here including myself. I've said this before, but I've been extremely privileged to have even met you and even more honored to count you as a friend. With all my heart I wish you nothing but the best of luck in this new chapter of your life and career!

    Congratulations on the job enhancement John! Sounds like it's a good move for you to take! Now - I'm sure we'll be seeing lots of additional shots from Charlotte (raceway of course!!!) and - remember - all those great NASCAR shops that are in the Charlotte area!!!

    John,

    Best of luck with your new adventures. I always enjoyed shooting with you aout at the airport or catching the shuttle at Bayswater and just shooting the breeze. You are an excellant photographer and and even better person. Best of luck.

    Moose, all the best to you. I still remember you were the first NYCA spotter I actually met, shooting at Costco in 2005.
    We've had some great outings since then. You will be missed up here, although I'm pretty sure, you will find a way to come visit around the end of May every year.

    Good luck Moose!

    You were also the first person I met from NYCA during airshow 2009 when the Thunderbird made the unexpected visit on Sunday. It has been great shooting with you and I look forward to doing more shooting in the future.
