This post allows me to reach a milestone.
« on: November 16, 2017, 08:45:13 AM »
Well today I surpassed a major milestone for me. This is my 10,000 post. It seems like I just joined the forum but it was actually 6-1/2 years ago. Time flies when you're having fun.  I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to Tom the Forum Moderator and entire  Forum Staff for keeping me and others in line making the best RV Forum in the world. If I offended anyone with any of my posts, I apologize.
I hope in the last 6 1/2 years I was able to help many members. I just enjoy helping people. I guess it may be from the training I had as a Boy Scout for many years and nearly 20 years as a volunteer firefighter.  I know this forum has been so helpful to me and I'm still learning. I wish I had known about this forum when I started RV'ing back in 1980.  It's been quite a ride and looking foward to continuing. Thank you to everyone who also makes this a great forum. Safe travels to everyone.

I saw that yesterday you posted number 9999. I was going to mention something last night and then I forgot. Any how congratulations and welcome to the 10,000 club. You are the ninth member. Ardra is closing in on being number ten. Somehow I feel like this could turn into a Saturday Night Live skit. You know, the five time hosting club. None of us will ever catch Gary and his 60,000+ posts.  :o
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

I lurk on another RV forum, and there's a guy like that there. He has an immense amount of posts, but he will post absolutely nothing of help on a technical issue, or even any topic.

If you ever meet Ardra in person you will absolutely know she was posting herself.  She edited the textbooks Jerry wrote.

I see that on another forum that is not rv related, I thought he was a bored 14 year old. That is quite the accomplishment Rene. I enjoy your posts and respect your knowledge, thanks for contributing.

Actually, that's one of things I like about this forum, it doesn't seem like post count means a whole lot. You can either comment or not. A lot of forums have "rankings" that change with the post count. Kinda childish I think.

You obviously haven't met Ardra -- they're hers, for sure -- she knows a lot about RVing/tech stuff. Jerry has a different flavor to his text, too. And, as Tom said, Jerry has his own account here.

Addendum: OK, you were posting while I was typing. You've obviously missed something, though.

Jerry seldom posts,,He has to armwrestle Ardra

Now that's funny, Dan!  ;D  In another earlier life I was a technical librarian specializing in all kinds of subjects, but especially engineering topics like avionics.  One day I commented to an engineering colleague that I needed a good electronics/electricity course and he told me not to waste my time because I started at the Ph.D. level!  :o I've just always been curious about "stuff" so Jerry and I have usually attended rally seminars together and I've learned a lot there about batteries and transmissions and all manner of good things.  And, of course, I love driving the motorhome so have learned a lot about it's handling.  I confess that sometimes I ask Jerry to check something I've written about the way we do something just to be sure it's technically correct.  Anyway, thanks everyone for the nice comments.

And back to posts - I didn't realize how close I was to 10,000!  Gabby me!  ;D

One of the things I like about this forum, is that it's ACTIVE.
It doesn't take too long to get a response to a question etc.

Some forums might get one or 2 replies to a post and then go dead.

But here there are many points of view.

Thanks Rene for all your help - I'm just over one tenth of your number, but I still am learning from you and many others here.  :) :) :)

Agreed. We consciously turned that off when we moved to the current forum software 12+ years ago. It might have been on (by default) for a short time until we realized how silly that was.
