    I still remember the time we got to go into Walt Disney's apartment at Disneyland. I sat down on Walt's bed and I still remember your face. It was like I touched the Mona Lisa! Then the cast member said it was ok to sit :worship:.

    I only met you a couple times before I left the Disneyland show, but you were very cool!!

    Your my favorite on the show and always will be!! Good luck to you!

    You will certainly be missed, but I'm very glad that you are taking care of yourself. That has to be your top priority. Best wishes and much pixie dust your way. Take care.

    According to this weeks podcast they said he's just taking a leave of absence to focus on himself and Dustin will be filling in for now so it sounds like he will be back.

    Best wishes for Pete. Pure speculation on my part, but Pete's past absences make me believe he will return. He's pure type A and can't leave the show alone forever. I sincerely hope that his personal reasons turn for the better but in the meantime the show is in capable hands. We'll miss ya Pete, hoping everything turns out roses for you.

    Pete-
    Having met you in person with my DH, Caskbill, I do go to Podcasts occasionally. I always appreciated what you have done with the Disboards in their creation and I can't imagine the time it consumes. We all move on in our lives to other things. I wish you well in your next adventure! Thanks for all you do for the DVC Owners!
    :love:

    Hey Pete. I hope you've been able to read all these posts-there's a lot of love out here for you! Very well deserved, I might add. Take care, keep in touch when you can ...and thanks!
    Dustin and team, great podcasts on Tuesday-- even though Nikki & Julie got my shopping addiction going again -LOL!

    I'm a Conservative Republican and Pete seems to be a Liberal Democrat(judging by many of his side comments)...but many of his statements that would usually rile me up(from any other person) actually made me *consider* his view in an honest way.

    I love you Pete! You are soooooo funny. I LOVE your mind. I hope you're okay.

    I have been listening to the Podcast for about 2 years now, and I will say, I cried when I heard this! I wish Pete all the best, and send hugs, prayers, and pixie dust his way. Good luck, and hope you are back soon!

    The show will definitely not be the same without Pete. Listening this week, I really miss that extra spark.

    Did anyone else get confused by the way Dustin announced Pete's departure? From Pete's comments on Facebook it seemed like a more permanent thing but Dustin made it seem like he was taking a couple weeks off. Did anyone else think the same thing or is it just me?

    Either way, you will be missed for sure. Wish you all the best, and I really hope you return one day. :-)

    I thought exactly the same thing. I was really shocked by how it didn't seem to be a big deal on the show. Maybe things changed from the time of the Facebook announcement to the time the show went live. I hope that is the case and we are looking at a few weeks away for Pete and not a permanent absence.

    Let me start by saying that I do not post very often, but felt that I should this time. I started listening to the podcast a couple of years ago as it made my morning and evening commute more enjoyable. I just want Pete to know that I really enjoyed what he brought to the show and will really miss his presence as it will never be the same. Good luck and take care of yourself.

    Take care, Pete! You have lots of fans who are wishing you the best.

    The weekly podcasts just won't be the same without your point of view. I loved to hear your thoughts!

    Be well!

    I think Pete has posted he will be back (he even promised). Hope that is the case, I love a good smart ***!! ;) But Dustin is doing great, handles the podcast with confidence and grace. Either way, looking forward to Pete's return, as I'm sure many of us are!!

    Breaking news to those who are not on face book as a pp mentioned Pete said he will be back. This is temporary and he can't stay away to long he miss the show and getting John to spend money.

    So Pete take as much time as you need Dustin doing great for now.

    Best wishes to Pete. I've been watching the Podcast every week since early this year, first on Youtube and now on Livestream, and thoroughly enjoy every show.
    Take care of yourself first, the Podcast is in good hands with Dustin and the team. Even though Cory said today that it wasn't a health issue, a herniated disc isn't a fun thing. (I know since I had one in my lower back last year.)

    We will all be looking forward to your return when that time is right.
    Good Luck and God Speed.
