I will be deploying to the desert this spring but with the pre deployment train-up I will be out of touch most of the time starting in January. Should be back April 2010.
Most of you newcomers don't know me because I don't post as often as I used to. But I log on a few times a week and read your posts. I've been a member since the begining when we spun-off from Frugals. Does anyone remember when that was? Vlad was here then I think, and Plainsman.
Anyway, wish me luck.

Nomad, that has indeed been a bunch of years ago.

Vlad is still here and active, as are Orion, Quill, Conservative and CV.

I "think" Tadpole started The CampFire around 1998, but I admit that I'd have trouble pinning a date on it.

As for your deployment, you have to know that I wish you Godspeed and that you''ll be in my prayers. But, until then, please don't be a stranger... #wink

OJC, I believe The Lodge came first. Around 2000 or 2001. Then the CampFire.

Best of luck, and if you find yourself in need of something from home that we can send, stick yer head in and ask. If you can use a cell overseas, and want a text connection with the board, PM me. I'll give you my number.

Stay safe, hurry back, and Thank You.
