Looks like we passed a milestone a few days back.
Over 500 members now.

Now all we gotta do is talk 'em into posting. #mrgreen

What is the total now Pipe? Have told many about the site since joining. Good to be at peace when posting and not be getting "chewed on" or threatened with getting booted for any minor infraction. Thanks for the site-feel kind of at home,wc

06,

IMO, it's a reflection of the entire CampFire community, Pard. We gather here to swap "bit and pieces of life" more than anything else. I like to think of it as gathering around the pickle barrel (or pot belly stove, if you prefer) and just jaw jackiin'.

I think what sets us aside from the rest is a civility and mutual respect for one another's varying points of view and an earnest desire to share and evaluate what we've learned and experiebce with like minded folks.

Every other forum (well "almost") is full of experts who refuse to accept any points of view that differ from their own "expert opinion" and densely populated with "young guns" needing to prove themselves.

Long Live The CampFire !!

Tennessee Andy invited me to visit. I guess that was a couple years ago.
I think of everybody here as my friends and family.
