Over the years of being a regular on this forum, I have had aquaintances and friends who tell me that they read the forms all the time and there is some good stuff on them. NOWI want to encourage a few of them to come out of the woods and join us. What say Uncle Fred? I know you're out there! ;)And the rest of you.... what are you waiting for... the second coming?

Them who lurk...

Kind of reminds me of Those We Do Not Speak Of.

I agree with kwillg6...why lurk? Join us. The more the merrier.

Uh Huh. They should at least say an occasional "howdy!" I guess we neeed to really spike their interest to get them to come into the light.

Okay Howdy!

I was a lurker for awhile, but it was more cause I couldn't figure out how to register than not having anything to say. I tried a couple of times to register with my gmail account and never received an email to finish the registration process or a message that gmail isn't allowed. I finally tried a different email address and I was able to register.

Welcome aboard, MephiteBlue! I checked your profile and noticed you spared us any details about yourself, such as:
where from, married?, family ski?, ski or board?, your on slope interests?, where do you slide?, etc. Tell us a bit about yourself.
And WELCOME TO DC SKI!!!

Thanks for the welcome.

I filled in a bit of my profile, but I'll put more right here.

I'm married, but unfortunately my wife doesn't ski. I ski, don't board, but may try it some day. I live out in Reston Virginia.

As for where I slide, well I learned to ski at Roundtop when I was growing up in PA. I now ski the local slopes, mostly Liberty, but will stray out to Wisp or some of the other places once in awhile. I actually took a break from skiing from several years, but plan on taking it back up this year and already have a vacation planned for the Poconos in January. Skied out West once and would love to do it again, but that will probably have to wait till next ski season.

Off the slopes I'm into music and play guitar in a local band, I'm also into photography and some other geeky activities such as watching anime, playing video games and things like that.

Since my wife doesn't ski, I'll be looking for people to hit the slopes with. So thanks again for the welcome and hope to see some of you guys out on the slopes.

I guess I am a lurker now since I check in to see what is going on every now and again. Back in DC for the week and was thinking about this forum.

Hope all is going well! A few weeks left until the season startsQ!

I didn't question why you asked - I asked why should someone post if they didn't have anything to say?

Zooman, a spider is a web-based program that "crawls" the web (get it - spider/web) usually cataloging websites for search engines.

Well Clay there's quite a few of us here that never let that get in the way i find in fact that once the saying starts it doesn't really matter because having nothing to say is just like not saying anything only not as much fun for all teh lurkers out there who make anonymouse complaintes on the annual readers survey but never have anything to say say did someone say anything if there's nothing to read?

really though there is a difference between not having anything to say and saying nothing just like the difference between skiing teh grommers all the time or goofing off under the lift and when hell freezes over we'll ski there too

MephitBlue,
Thanks for the info about yourself...I have the same "wife does not ski" situation. Maybe we can get out a time or two together. You should be aware that I am a senior, but JimK can vouch for me.
Looking forward to skiing with you somewhere,
The Colonel smile

Hitting the slopes together a time or two sounds good Colonel. Finding some people to ski with is one the main reasons I joined the forum.

zooman not only joined the site but he has joined us at the Blue Knob get together the last 2 seasons. We'll be getting together again the weekend after Presidents. I'm just waiting for JimK to make the formal announcement. Look for a new thread soon.
