I thought I would invite you all along on a trip I began, a couple of weeks ago. I was thinking about all the members we have and in particular, some who have been here much longer than I have, so I thought I would go visit them and learn a little more about them. I did this by going to the “gold bar” and clicked on “members”, and one-by-one, started with our number one poster, Karson. I started viewing each one of their profiles and shops. I don’t know how much I’ll remember, but it’s a kick to learn a little more about each one of them and see their shops.
So grab a keyboard and come along for the ride. There are a lot of great LJ’ers to get know and more so, every day.

Ms. Debbie is doing a great job of interviewing a lot of the long term members, but I don’t think I’ll live long enough to see the other 17,000 plus, in the newsletters. I only have about 16,897, no…98, no.. 99, to go.

i’ve got about that many to go too ,
i get so many notices ,
that looking at their sites , is like a vacation .
i do look at home pages and projects , when someone takes me for bud .

i probably know your routers by name now ,
i don’t even know how many times i’ve stood in your driveway ,
admiring you shop .
someday , i will open door #3 ,
and you will be there smiling .
i can’t wait !

There are some really great projects and blogs from people who are not very active any more. Sounds like a great way to discover them.

Jim I’m honored to be your first, but I’m along for the ride. Let me know when you will arrive and I’ll try to be home.

I agree with you Jim !Lumberjocks is crawling with cool people.

Amazing how everyone does it different,... I’ve latched onto allot more buddies then the average bear.

Having the big list , Keeps me active just seeing what by buds are doing. If someone gets too crazy or snooty … well I remove them from my buddies list

Don’t forget to stop at my shop Jim. Actually, come get me and we’ll both go see Karson.
His lumber collection may be the 10th wonder of the world.
