Thank you, Ron. To be honest - my life was a mess. Lost my partner, lost all my jobs and lost my home. Now I have a new place and am still figuring out. It'll take some time to be back on force, sure. But I'm still here.

Thanks to all of you who keep Whip Basics alive.

Yours,
Robby

Over the years, Rachel became one of the best whip makers. If there is a top ten list - she is in my top 5.

Rachel... That is amazing. Simply amazing. The combination of materials - antler & leather - is the perfect combination. Congratulations on that wonderful piece of art. And my respect to a great whip maker!

Again - I have to thank all those who donated. I was asked by a member if I donate anything myself. Well...I do. In fact I donate every year worth 72 tickets. I just think that it is inappropriate to put my name into the pool. That's all.

I started to upload the video right now. We had a lot of fun, a lot of folks who won great prizes (and nobody knows who won what...!) and - the most important part - we made a little more than 500.00 Euro for the dog shelter :) I'll post the video link here as soon as the upload is complete! And - o...

It's never too late for a donation :) In fact we have some more donations and at least one more whip, which isn't in the forum. Here in good old germany it is 06.42 pm and we'll begin the draw in about one and a half hours! We'll record all that (as every year) and then it'll be on YouTube. Please d...

It's amazing to see what that small idea of founding a whip forum has become within 10 years. I mentioned it more often, but I won't stop to repeat it: Whip Basics is the smallest whip group by far. Every Facebook group is bigger than we are. Much bigger. But only this little group donates year by y...

I HATE that I can't put my name into the lottery pool... So much great whips. So many great prizes.
Thank you. Thanks to all of you! I hope we will make a great donation to the dog shelter!

I watched your videos very closely. And I'm not sure if you're going to like what I have to say about it... Your coachman's crack is absolutely okay, Flemming :) Not perfect, but all I could tell you is, that you have to work on the flexibility of your shoulders and n o t to look straight forward, b...

Do we have three whips, this time? Well, Robert said in another post that he's going to donate, too. That makes it four, right? The drawing will be a short one in September.

Okay... Why vanilla and why public tv? Beige is not so hard to think of. And a lot of people like ice cream. But why so specific on vanilla and public television...? Please - explain :)

And - good work, Jessie!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! To all of you who are donating! Thank you!

That whip looks simply gorgeous. The knots, the taper, the plaiting and - of course - the dragon! I've never seen anything like it. I would prefer the dragon to crawl upwards; To the transition. But that is a matter of personal preference. Not more. The "smoke" above the head of the dragon...
