Its been a great experience for me. I've meet or communicated with collectors all across the continent and even some in Europe. My education would have been much slower and more expensive without the likes of DB and many other willing OGers. People come and go but the community maintains its strengths including the ability to trust a fellow old gasser.
Jim thanks for providing a forum where we can share ideas, items and collecting philosophy (but not religion and politics)! Happy 25th๐ŸŽ‚ and more to come.
