Good list. Add Loren Kokenus sp?
I also second Bill Hermann.
These guys are perfect examples of the silent trail builders who contribute MUCH more than anyone realizes. Loren is also a master advocate.
I also don't think it's fair to continue this discussion without mentioning Nick and Marty Shue. They've also put a lot of time and money into making the wheels turn, the people who haven't done this type of work really don't understand the dedication that all of the aforementioned have put into it. This is definitely a labor of love. I could name more, but the list would start to get ridiculous.
