Rivet Master

What is the purpose of the one,two three, then four rivets above your name? What is a rivet mater, or a supporting member?

The number of rivets by your name denote your experience and wisdom.

It's typical for a one rivet member to make camping gaffs like forgetting to fill up propane tanks etc.

Once you go through the secret ceremony and become a "Rivet Master" All trailering and Airstream wisdom is bestowed upon you. So when a Rivet Master forgets to secure the fridge door before a trip. The Rivet Master knows to never admits it.

A rivet master is a prolific writer with a lot of time on his/her hands.

I believe that a rivet mater is a person who places pairs of rivets together, with the hope that they will produce more rivets.

A supporting member is one who donates money to support the forum.

Regards,
Ken

Dang - does that mean I have to give back the cape and scepter? I am sure there are some things that are still a mystery to me. For instance, why does flannel seem an acceptable fashion choice in an Airstream when one might ordinarily eschew it?

Why does the paring knife always end up in the back of the drawer?

Why does coffee taste better camping?

A rivet mater is the mother of all rivets: Mater - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I knew high school Latin would come in useful some day.

You need the cape and sceptor to make your rivets prance and congo line around the camp.

Flannel is warm and warm is always in fashion.

Paring knives have attention issues and need to be sought out and fussed over.

Because coffee likes camping too and rewards you for taking it with better flavor.

Behold the awesome power of the Rivet Master!!!

P.S. In answer to the many PM's I have received.

Yes, you may substitute a rubber chicken for the third half of the ceremony.

Maters

Some have way to much time on there hands.Well as a new member to this forum. I felt it was a legitimate question, of which one individual answered quickly and kindly. If you are new here sometime just navigating your way around to all the answers is difficult if not impossible. I usually will spend hours if not day's reading post before I will ask a question of someone. I make every effort to work for myself first. I am not upset at being made a joke of or my lack of spelling. I just wish to inform you that sometime people would appreciate just a answer. Thank you kindly for allowing my point of view. I see I also have other answers as well. I do love a laugh at the expense of another. Way to go team. (Have a great day)
