Good forums like this one bring good people together. I actually met Doug (Twinn29) thru OSO and we only live 40 minutes apart. I made the descision to trailer 8 hrs down to Lake Champlain 2 years ago because of the feeling I got typing to GLH, JS232, Kanookstr et al. What a great trip that turned out to be. I met many OSO mambers on that first Milk run and many more when I returned this year. Hell, I even got to meet the old antique hisself, T2x . I was able to hook up with Gary(Cig1), Matt(IDRPSTF) Tom (Tom) and the illustrious Ron Songrath(D Man)and even catch a ride on RWD on the left coast because of this board too. I met Scott in Sandusky OH. Talked on the phone with Fred(Too Old), Cord, Rod(RPM) who I bought an Eliminator from,Insptech( who I also bought a boat from) and even yesterday, yalked with the Foul on his way to meet Twinn29. When you first meet someone in person, oft times it seems as though you have known then for years, all due to the time you spend here. Meeting your "friends" face to face for the first time is as easy as riding a bike. Sure you might occasionally meet someone that you don't particularly like or get along with but your chances of doing so seem much less likely because of the boards.
