    It's not the just internet, its cool people like yourself that take the time to create a place where we can all meet! I thank you for that ( From one Geordie to another!)

    Congrats on 10 years of fun!
    Best wishes to @badmuler on his upcoming nuptials too!
    I am just a young kid at 7 years on RRB now, but I've gotten many of the same benefits you speak of.

    CHEERS TO YOU!
    CHEERS TO RRB!

    It's been 9 years I've been on here, and I agree it's one of a kind. Like a refuge or hideout.

    Kingfish, might wanna check the batteries in the adding machine. :39:

    Not really. I joined back in 2009, but didn't really post until the end of Build Off 6. :D

    It appears Steve sorta knew what he was doing when he created this place. (Smile)

    Oh, and my grips company was formed because of it.

    Thanks @Boris for posting and thanks to Steve for creating this place. I feel like I've found a place here too. The last 5 years have flew by. I've tried to build something in almost every build off since I got here. It can be expensive if you want it to be, but it doesn't have to be and that is one of the cool things about rats. I definitely agree that the bond between builders here is strong. It's cool to belong. Congrats to @badmuller too!

    Carl.
