Don't know why but I decided to see when I made my first post/follow-up contribution.

My research has taken me back to 12 June 2002.( all 70 pages and 100 views per page ) This is using the Search Function and typing in all the names I went under which I can remember....lol

I recognise quite a number of regulars posting even though their names have changed too over time. I cringe at some of the things I said in posts but I suppose everything to do with the internet is a great learning curve. I see that I raised the ire of a certain Bob Allan (not sure if he is still around?) about Landrovers on 29 August 2002.

But I have tempered my posts over the years and now cruise under guidance from time to time.

Anyway, I am going bush on 28th May and will be off-line until the beginning of September or thereabouts.


Cheers

That got me wondering, so, I searched for the first thread on the forum. No go, wont open it.
Second thread and onwards ok.

Not lost any sleep over it but curious just the same.



Cheers.....Lionel.

Thought I might have a look as well.
First post 13th Feb 2002.
Was Dean then and have occassionally been a member. Cant believe Ive been at this for 7 years.
Hardly ever post unless I want to know something or can help others. What's that saying quality over quantity.

Ah yes, that may well have been your first FORUM contribution but I clearly recall emails from you dating back to 2000 - most notably one containing a list of typos you'd picked up that I'd made (whilst pregnant creating some of our very first pages). My how the years have rolled on... ExplorOz will be celebrating its 10th Anniversary next year which ties in nicely with our 2010 National Members Gathering in Wiluna. Be good to see the list of long-term site followers at this special celebration.

Hi Michelle

28 June is my wedding anniversary, what a coincidence..lol

We will have to be in Wiluna en route to warmer weather then.

Hmmmm...I don't recall sending a spelling mistake email but I will trust that your memory is better than mine. That was about the time I started surfing the www. Geez....9 years so far?

Well now I feel like the new bloke,

My first reply was the 27th Feb 2003, my first question was 24 Mar 2003.

No doubt Willem when you get back from your wanderings you will have more to post about.

Keep safe on your travels.Wiluna.......might have to start planning now.

Well fella, I did a search and found my first post in 2005. God it seems so long and so many dusty kilometres ago. I think I've become less verbose since then...possibly because I know more but you can be the judge of that lol.

Strangely enough, the first bloke who replied was.......Post 29249. Check it out!

Cheers

Goodness, I even chimed into that one!

I didn't realise I'd been around that long!

Best I go looking for the beginning.

Willem

I couldn't find the 29 Aug post you referred to. What is the post number. Maybe you were Collins (or Tony) :-)

Interesting to go back over those early posts.

My first post was Mar 02.

Thank goodness that loser (and all his aliases) with the Land rover complex has gone. I doubt he'd get away with posts like that today.

Anyway my D2 is still running strong, and the D3 has been acclaimed by all and has taken the world by storm. The word schadenfreude comes to mind.

There were so few members back then. Its hard to believe how much its grown. Congratulations to David Michelle et al. You can see why I was a bit antsy when someone started using this forum to promote a competitor.

Yep, as my neighbour Matt said, I'm still around.
