Wow- how do you put in printed form of the life I have experienced with the inception of the original forum?
The ups and downs, the personal emails telling me how to run a forum, et all- Randy you can relate. To me- with the response from all who post and those that chose NOT to post, the experience has been something I could not imagined in my life, and I thank you all. I am blessed.

I do have a real life and am very busy, but I read the Forums everyday.
When I first became interested in BB's, I found Ernie's Forum, there were a few thousand posts.
So I read every post until I caught up and continued until the present time.
Ernie can you tell us when the Forums started??
I think I started reading and asking questions sometime during 2002/2003.
Thanks to all the posters that ask and answer questions, and volunteer information & knowledge including travel adventures.
The Moderators, Forum Owners, and the Posting Police are great.
Thanks Again

Oh boy,now I'm on the hot seat!

I am happy to be of service and sure am grateful for WOG and the other forums too.

For me, a relative newcomer, this forum really is a gateway to learning ALL about our Birds. We learn how to WORK on and MAINTAIN our Birds, how to TRAVEL and LIVE on our Birds and more.

More importantly for me, this is a gateway to meeting some terrific people and building great friendships. And, as Randy the KOW (King of Wanderlodge) might say it, a gateway to a BIG TIME!

Thanks for having me and HAPPY BIRTHDAY WOG!

NH Bill

The first forum was Vintage Birds. I remember Richard Doty was the webmaster back then. They had many issues with the forum going down, etc. Bruce Morris and I were corresponding by PM and we discussed the need for both of us to gain knowledge about our coaches. So after some more discussion, the original forum was launched in 2001. That was really successful- perhaps you know the outcome. Ernie
I really enjoyed the time we all had together out here at Q
