Topic tags/keywords: help friends

I had a thought as I was replying to Xavier's comment to my offbeat post. This is pretty valuable info to anyone visiting the area and since this is a tourist spot I figured I’d give it broader exposure. And then I was thinking why stop there? There has to be so many ways that the collective here could share info. For example: In my job I’m a process piping designer, have lots of CAD, Graphics, Modeling, etc.. experience. What might seem a difficult task for some of my friends here I could do in a few moments and vice versa. I’m astounded by the intelligence of the conversation here and the knowledge that is shared.

The only way I can see to do this is to simply post a question here in the coffee lounge. If someone asks for Autocad or Sketchup help (these could go in the skill share as well) or asks about places to stay and eat near where I live or anything else I might know enough about to respond, you’ll hear from me. As usual with my more local friends I’ll help you as best I can while getting my own always mounting pile of stuff done. I’m hoping we can all help each other and in the end all have more time to make sawdust and maybe save each other some cash in the bargain. If you were coming to Plymouth to visit and got the info from a local who you trust on where eat, play, and stay I can guarantee you’ll have a better time and save some $. What are friends for if not to ask them for help or advice once in awhile?

I’m not sure what will come up but you’ll also see me asking questions too.

-- Bob

Great idea Bob. I am sure the Lumberjocks are willing to help each other out where they can.

I agree on providing help as it is needed and as we are able.
