    I would have to add that Don Kuchenmiester (aka FatBeeMan) is also very high ranking.

    I modeled my beekeeping after Michael Bush and his writings.

    In no particular order: Michael Bush (got me into beekeeping relatively cheaply), Roland (Wisconsin beekeeping virtual mentor), Mel Disselkoen (MDA splitter outbreeding the mites), Michael Palmer (Nuc guru), Jim Kloek of Natures Nectar (My most local resource), Allen Dick (Retired Canadian Beekeeper, and Diary Writer).

    Bunch of them. Michael Bush, Michael Palmer, Fat Bee Man, JP The Beeman (youtube!) Les Crowder, and my cousin Shane (my sounding board). None of them (if they are smart!) would claim me!

    Mine are the "regulars" in the beesource.com chat room, and all of the "youtube" beekeepers who share their wisdom. I've learned a lot! I only wish Michael Bush and JP would visit chat sometime.

    About any of you guys that regularly post on here. No telling how many times I've came here looking for a direction to go and found it within a search or two.

    My 8 year old. He dives in to a hive with utter wonderment, complete fearlessness, absolute delight, and reckless abandon. I want to be just like him.

    Michael Bush (have his book), Michael Palmer (anxiously waiting for his book), the bees... and countless others who take the time to answer questions and post information online in places like Beesource, and their own websites.

    Locally my mentor is the President of our Beekeeping club - a sharp man with a lot of practical knowledge. My Beesource mentor is definitely Oldtimer. I read everything he has to say and he's been kind enough to PM me about several problems I've had. On the internet generally it would be Michael Bush and Randy Oliver.
