Nick has been around a bit longer than myself. I can say that ALL of his posts that I have read have been a quality contribution to the forums. The forum has changed a lot over the past couple of years. It has gone from a smaller group of "friends" to a large community. Kind of like the difference between a neighborhood and a small city, if you will. It is difficult to keep up with all the posts now. I belong to several forums both large and small, they each have advantages. There are many members that when they post, regardless of the topic I will want to read what they have to say. Nick has been one of them.

Congratulations on you 1,000th post!

Aaron

Nick,

Great job on your one thousandth post! Always enjoy you contributions.

. . . . and Bob, congratulations on number 5000! I joined a few days after you did, and I've always appreciated your steady hand on the tiller.

I have to agree that the forums aren't as intimate and personal as they were four years ago. Back then it seemed you knew everyone, and enjoyed the give and take. Especially on topics like polishing. That thread went on forever!

There are lots of members I miss. They've dropped out, moved on, or otherwise just didn't have much more to say. (I should follow their example) It does get a little circular sometimes, seems like we've said the same things a dozen times before.

But it's still worth the time to log on and read some of the threads. There are still little gems of wisdom, they just come further apart.

Nick -- Congratulations on your 1000 posts!

Here is a classic example of one of your fine, in-depth threads that made me pause last year:
Load distribution hitches-an analysis (which should be required reading for all newbies!):

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f464/load-distribution-hitches-analysis-19236.html

Thank you for your continued support and enthusiasm for these forums.

We are still a group of enthusiasts… it’s just that there are more campfires now!

The forum has changed and doesn't seem as personal as it once was. There are many new members and the posts and threads have taken some new and different directions. I think I would now have over a 1000 posts but about 800 were deleted ( my fault) over a dispute I had over deleted posts. Oh well, I'm still here and enjoy checking in on a daily bases. There's always something interesting to read and even though I've only ever met one forum member a lot of you still feel like good friends.

Nick,
Congrats on ur 1,000~!!
I have always enjoyed ur perspective,as an Airstreamer from across the pond.
Remembering those days, it was like the WILD WEST at times. Do I miss em?
Yea, it was chaotic at it's best and, GAWD who back then could ever forget HEX?? I enjoyed the heck out of his post and, the logical way of his diggs.
So many others, that seem to vanquish into thin air but not forgotten..
Yea, it changed, mostly for the better..Instead of a clutter desk(which I love~!!) everything has gotten filed into one huge room of file cabinets..
That's my story and, I am sticking to it..
Again, CONGRATS TO YOU..Stick around for a few more years~!!
ciao
53FC..aka towner: aka etc,etc, etc

Thank you.

I've been away from home, looking after an elderly relative, but I've just checked back with the forum. I'm very touched by your messages of support, and will carry on enjoying the company of so many good and intelligent folks on the forum. It's kinda strange to have an extended family you've never met. That said, a bunch of us are having lunch in Minneapolis in a couple of weeks, shortly after I arrive from the U.K, so see you there, Bob (Canoestream) and Markdoane. Many thanks for the kind words of encouragement.
Nick.

I remember you. You were my idol, standing up for our 1st amendment. And what a class act to actually threaten, and in the end, perform a public suicide in order to make your point. It was a sad day indeed when you finally bid farewell, and your wake was quite a good drunk if I remember correctly. Anyway welcome back, as you are probably aware, the forum has not changed much in this regard (which is a good thing, or this place would be a mess).

Congrats Nick

Nick, I echo everyone's sentiments. Your participation has always been insightful and valuable, and I think we all greet you as "friend". I'd love to meet you in Minneapolis, but I've got previous obligations. Have a piece of dessert for me!

Roger
