I have only been a member but a few days now, but I have been looking, reading, watching...........
I see a brotherhood of folks who work their butts off to survive, but still have it in them to come to the aid of another when they need a helping hand.
I see folks living by the old world values of you do things right, and don't sell out those values.
I see guys set in their ways as to what equipment is the best, and nothing else exists, but still they take it in stride when the jesting and chides from others pokes fun at them.
I see a database of knowledge and advice from those who have been there and done that, and they freely share their experiences and know-how.
I see clowns who can make us snicker, giggle, or perhaps even chortle when we need a good laugh.
I see folks who come up with a point of view otherwise overlooked or forgotten, a fresh aspect is always a good thing to help analyze a situation.
When I joined up, I was looking forward to being an active part of this forum, and now I look forward even more to be a part of this group.
I'm proud to be a part of the brotherhood, and I hope I can always be here to do my part and hope I fit in. I'm sure I am loonier than some, but not as loony as others. There's a niche in there somewhere, I'm sure ....
