Default 10 year VAF veteran

i realized today that my join-date for vaf forums was june 2006. ive been a part of the family for 10 years . i've now been flying my RV for longer than i spent building it (in terms of years, not flying hours!) which i suppose is another milestone.

Congratulations! I don't even know how long *I've* been doing this thing? Maybe I should go look. :-) Maybe I won't look - it would involve math.

This thread prompted me to go back and look at my join date....1-3-2005. Scary thing is, I can still recall some of those early conversations, and it feels like yesterday. Time is a funny thing.

It's funny how the time flies. I'm still in my early 30's, so I know most of the gray beards would just pat me on the head and chuckle...

My 10-year VAFiversary isn't too far off, and this thread did give me reason to pause and reflect. Without VAF, I probably wouldn't have built my RV-9A, wouldn't have started the -10, and would almost certainly be a different person today. Content on VAF constantly motivates me to keep building, makes me a safer pilot and a better builder. I check the site for new posts AT LEAST 30 times a day . A special thanks to Doug for hosting the site and to those who post the content that make it what it is, is definitely in order!

Slipped past 10 years, ummm....last year. I had no intention of building one for myself; I was working on a custom biplane with M14 power. Signed up because VAF looked like an excellent source for TC information, and those pesky RV's were popping up everywhere.

Time flies.
Been on the forum since Feb 2005.
Received AW, June 2006.
First Flight, July 2006.

I don't think I could have made without all the help from everyone here.
And, I hope I have contributed in helping others get to flight.

Happy Anniversary!

This thread prompted me to go look. I started in June of 2006, so I hit ten years this month as well.

I've still got 4 months to go, hard to believe it's been that long.
