Isn't Evan Stahl from MI? I have heard he's a super cool fellow breeder.
Also, you might be surprised. There are closet herpers everywhere. People tend to be cautious with others, until they know they are fellow "freaks". [i mean freak in the best possible sense...]
I just found out my cousin had a BP, and no one else knew about it, besides his parents. He's now in Brighton. (I moved to Chicago, and only see him on holidays, but my 'rents see him all the time. No one had a clue.)
