    When was it started?
    Why did Dawg start it?
    How many members did it have prior to SFN collapsing?
    And what does Dawg do for a living?

    Dawg was born a young pup, deep in the heart of Texas.

    The Salty Dawg Saloon is a famous landmark on the Homer Spit in Homer, Alaska.
    [h=2][edit] History[/h]The Salty Dawg originally was one of the first cabins built in Homer in 1897, soon after the establishment of the town site. It served as the first post office, a railroad station, a grocery store, and a coal mining office for twenty years. In 1909 a second building was constructed, and it served as a school house, post office, grocery store. And at one time, it housed three adults and eleven children.
    It was acquired in the late 1940s by Chuck Abbatt to be used as an office for Standard Oil Company. In April 1957, he officially opened it as the Salty Dawg Saloon. By 1960 the Salty Dawg Saloon had a building adjacent to it, coinciding with The Alaska Territory becoming the 49th state of the union in January 1959.
    Earl D. Hillstrand (1913-1974), an attorney, small businessman and member of the Alaska House of Representatives, purchased it in 1960. Although an Anchorage resident, Hillstrand had a homestead near Homer and was in the process of developing the nearby Land's End Resort at the time.
    After the March 1964 Good Friday Earthquake, he moved the structure to its present location. The distinctive lighthouse tower was added to cover a water storage tank, thus completing one of Homer's more historical and recognizable landmarks.
    The Salty Dawg Saloon is currently owned and operated by John Warren.
    The saloon has been featured on Deadliest Catch on the Discovery Channel. The bar is known for the thousands of dollar bills signed by visitors and tacked to the walls. This practice started many years ago, when a visitor tacked a dollar on the wall, explaining that his friend would be by later. The dollar was intended for buying the friend a drink.[SUP][/SUP]

    In the beginning....
    Dawg PMed me on that other place and said he wanted to start a forum that was not in competition with them. But a place for people to just kick back and have a good time. We had Mutt's blessing.
    So we started inviting anyone we thought would be a good fit here.
    It was fun at first. Then it became a nightmare for a bit when the flood came, because some people couldn't understand a forum where mults were absolutely not allowed. (They're still not.)
    Dawg was ready to throw in the towel. Seriously.

    And it appears the Saloon finally returned to everything Dawg had in mind. And I'm tickled to death for him. :spazz:
    You won't meet a better guy than him, bar none.

    I'm very proud and feel very privileged to have been asked to be the first registered member here. This place fucking rocks!

    I went for my temporary crown today and told him about your health and wellness thread and what you had asked about my work, and he was VERY impressed!
    His words?
    "That's great! That helps both of us. You feel good about your work, and I feel good about the work I'm doing."
