Thank you Members One and All

I just wanted to take a minute to Thank Everyone on this site. The knowledge that gets passed on here is unbelievable.

It starts at the new members who ask the newbie questions (which I'm sure we all did) for without you, the answers would not flow and a bit of knowledge of something many of us new nothing about is now known. Thanks for not knowing and asking!

Then it goes out to those of us that just encounter issues on our own coaches and have the need to understand what's gone wrong and what needs to be done. The answers to these questions aide the rest of us who then gain a better understanding of our own rigs and what to anticipate if it happens to us. Thanks for your problems for without them many of the answers to fixes could not be raised.

Lastly I would like to thank all the members who (likely have a lot of time on their hands) constantly give of their time to reply, give of their expertise and pass on their knowledge to all of us in the need to know about RV's, Experiences and about Life in General.

I know I for one have come a long way since my joining this group of fine people(my wife says I've become a little obsessed LOL) anyways, Thanks To You All! Safe Travels!

I think we are all in the same boat. I have learned a lot of good things on this forum, and try to pass along what experience I have as well. This is a great forum where everyone is for the most part helpful and respectful. Like you said safe travels.

Isn't the internet a wonderful thing. It used to be that if you had a problem, you had to go to school, or hire an expert to learn how to deal with it. Now, pretty much anything you want in-depth knowledge of is available for the cost of a google search.

I've said it before; the lasting value of forums like this are not the conversation at hand, but the ever expanding archive of knowledge they leave in their wake. For a new user to be able to come here and search that archive in invaluable. For them to be able to directly query the vast knowledge of the participants in a near real-time fashion is amazing.

So, +1.... Kudos to all the participants, the mods and admins, and the owners of the site. It is a real asset to the RV community, and a shining example of what the internet can do for everyone. And a big THANK YOU to dogpatch for taking the time to point it out. Classy move.

Well said dogpatch. I have learned so much since joining this site, it's a constant and consistant source of knowledge. This place is knowledge on stroids. What would take someone months, possibly years, to learn is done in a couple of days or less. I tell my RV friends about it.
Thank you to all, for helping this newbe get up and running.

It's like anything else in life. We learn from our parents and grandparents who have a lot of experience and here we learn from each other. I know I've learned a lot in the last 5 years about RV'ing and I owe it all to those on this forum and other forums.

Some of the advice was good, some great and some not so good but all in all it really helped me. Now I feel like I "owe" something back to give to those who need answers.

Thanks to all that have helped me!
