Ha! I never quite managed to get perma-banned, though I'm sure I came close....

My .02: The expansion/segmentation of the forums/mentor groups created silos that took away from the sense of community. Kind of like a party at a resort where everyone is in the rooms but not in the lobby. It's a great resort, but it's hard to engage with folks unless you head to the rooms, and that's mildly awkward unless you are invited or know those sub groups.

Solution: kill most of the sub forums. If someone wants to talk about texas tris, they do it in the main tri forum. All been discussed, I'm sure, but that was my personal experience.

How much has social media changed in 12 years? lolcats isn't even a thing anymore, though Nazi punching, bizarrely, is.

Also, some of us moved on to other interests.

I will always remember Ron showing up for a funeral in Brandon. That's all I need to know about how special BT is.

[Apparently, I no longer know how to edit a post.] I helmed our boat to a win within our class with an all female crew. My hubby (I got married, he is perfect for me) lets me take the boat out without him now. It's a very cool thing to know how to do that.

Wow!!! That's awesome Renee!!! I've never sailed before, but would love to learn one day! I'm learning to fly (well, I soloed and just knocking out requirements to get license) which has proven to be a rewarding challenge. Hope all finds you well!!

Thanks, Mike. It's something I've wanted to do for a very long time. The more I learn, the more I realize there's so much more to learn. I enjoy the mental workout and focus that helming demands. But mostly, I just love being on the water. We did a long, overnight race last year which I will do again this year, but without my husband on board this time; also, an all female crew this time. 6am coffee with a cool Gulf breeze and sunrise is magic.

Flying! Very cool. I know a guy who owns a corporate jet charter company, he's always looking for pilots.

I had a friend in HS that came from a wealthy family. They had a 72 foot boat that they kept in a marina around Kemah. He was allowed to take the boat out with friends, but my dad never let me go. I guess he didn't have faith in a 16 year old Skipper and an inexperienced crew. They never had any problems, but looking back, my dad was probably right not letting me go. Sailing a boat is definitely science, winning races is an an art form IMO. Well done.

From my cross country yesterday. Medina Lake, west of SA.

Aren't you supposed to keep both hands on the wheel, or the stick, or yoke, or whatever the hell steers those things? My dad and brother both flew.....one day I'll tell you about BOTH crashes I was in with my dad and his 1946 Champ taildragger club plane. I'd rather walk. LOL

Impossible to text and fly if you have both hands on the yoke...
