Will be 3 years in November for me.

I don't own a mill yet but that is down the road for sure,

I'm not a logger but have 69 acres of trees to take care of,

I'm not a woodsmith or builder but with the great help from all of you I managed to build a nice house amoungst my trees,

I look forward to all the posts so I can learn not only about forestry and logging but your views opinions and life in general.

This is my all time favorite place to be on the web.

I was reading in the forum history where it was planned to be only about forestry and loggers. I'm glad that has changed so people like me are allowed in :) I Apoligize to those that put up with my sometime dumb questions.

Thank all of you for your help, wisdom, and insights.

Thank you Jeff for starting this great place with great people!

April 2005 Found this site from the other side of the fence. Because my father bought me a sawmill and I needed to find out how to run it.

Over 9 years and I have to say I have met a lot of very nice people.   I am very glad Jeff had the thought to create a place like this. ;D

And you even met me once!  ;)
So, how did I end up here anyway?

In all seriousness, I belong to a hand full of forums and this one by far is the most civilized. For this, I am very grateful to all the hard work by those who guard the spirit of this forum.

  December 21, 2007. I Lurked a long time before joining, I think at least a couple years or so. Shouldn't have waited, but better late than never. This is by far the best forum I have seen.

2/14/2002....I think my wife would kill me if she knew I wasn't devoting my energies to Valentines day that day.
Also, same month and year as Beenthere (who has contributed much more here)
I joined almost as soon as I found the FF, but I think it was 3 years before my first post. (I type REALLY slow!!) ;D

Just shy of 5 years since I joined. I was a guest lurked for several months before that.

A Wood-Mizer article sent me to the "wood doc's" site; after a bit I noticed that some guy named "Tom" had a lot of sensible stuff to say (more so than many posters over there). So one day I followed him home and one of the links on his site sent me here. Haven't been to that other place since.

  Just over five years, but didn't participate much at first. I think about three years "active". Now it seems like home. ;)
