Oldest Active Members

PostBy: Richard S. On: Mon May 07, 2012 6:37 am

Bunky coming back spurred me to look up who's been around the longest and still active. The forum went online Fri Oct 01, 2004 8:35 pm. 8 years, WOW, it's like having a kid and you wonder how it got so old so quick. :lol: Anyhow here's the oldest active members, I'm basing this on people with activity in the last few months. There is a few not listed that have visited in 2011. Might be surprising, some of the oldest active members don't post that much. I won't mention any names but there is two in the list I didn't recognize. :oops:

Very cool. Thank you Richard. Let's hope that 20 years from now we can look back at this same post & say "Wow, time flies and we're still warm".

Cool! I don't know how I managed to burn coal prior to joining in '05. I seem to remember it was a struggle. But I am a city boy turned rural. I grew up with natural gas furnaces, city water & sewer. Philadelphia city water. Yuck!

I know franco has a few years on you, but that didn't stop me from giving you an early morning jab.

Fred, my math says you hold the record for the most posts per year of membership.

That information is available when you click someones name and go to their profile.I'd have to agree your assessment is correct.

So much coal-burning knowledge represented....

And a well worthwhile venture it has been for the bunch of us I'm sure. On a serious note, which most know I only do on occasion, except when it comes to hand fired operation & safety, I will always be grateful I found this site when I switched from 40 yrs of wood burning. The transition was made smooth by many FORUM members. Also, I had hit my mid 60's & was starting to become a tad teachable. :clap: toothy
