OK. This should be it. The "pinnacle". I've climbed as high as I can go.... it is all down hill from here.

Seriously, it has been just over 5 years (but who is counting?) since I joined this forum and, tonight, I've crossed the 1,000 post threshold. Frankly, I'm a little surprised. I've logged over 3K posts elsewhere so it is clear that I'm a "ratchet-jaw" on the keyboard. I have enjoyed the experience here immensely and have gotten great value out of the information exchanges.

So I'm now karma-ed out. I'll just sit quietly and watch my 5 campfires burn (fat chance.)

Congrats Charlie, I hope to light my last campfire before I retire in 2023.

That does not sound right but either way we can only hope there are many more miles to travel before the last campfire song is sung.

Congratulations, and here I am registered for almost 9 years and still only have 2 campfires. I guess I need to RV less and post more. NAAAAH.

I generally just lurk. However, this thread got me to thinking - when did I register and how many "campfires" (I thought they were candles)I have - let's see..........eddielee

Congrats on #5. You and the others in that club are the reason many newcomers say they have heard how good this site is. Keep the posts coming.

Oh yes, thank you for giving me a reason to add one more post on my road to #5.

Charles: Congratulations but I'm a little disappointed, I always thought you had nothing but the highest motives, sharing your wisdom, perseverance and skill to those of us less fortunate. And it all comes down to fame, recognition and campfires.
Seriously, thanks for a lot of good input.
