    It was a very small group of people back then. I think when i first starting coming around (and maybe by the time i joined) there were only around 1000 members. Look at how many members there are now, 37,394 members as of tonight. :eek1:

    pad. I used to swing by back in the day, but didn't register 'till later. The site rocked... or maybe I just remember it being cool because I wasn't annoyed with all the "will 35s fit with 4" of lift and no fender trimming??" posts at that point...

    I know I was reading the site back before I left Penn State in June 2000. In fact, I used the site to help my brother fix his '87 Jimmy a couple times. Had a user name and bought some stickers for him. Either way, I lost/forgot my name and had to re-register when I FINALLY bought my K5.

    I can't tell you how excited I was back then to find a site full of guys who loved Blazers like I did. The site has grown/changed and a lot of people have come and gone... but it's still the best darn Chevy site I've ever used.

    I guess you could call me a long-term-paying-member-lurker. I don't usually post unless i think I can add to the conversation, so I mostly read and follow along, only posting when I can contribute. I've been on the sight regularly for 4.5 years, but only a couple hundred posts.

    Maybe I should learn to 'pad'.... :)

    I wish Steve posted more... Kinda bothers me that this is his site and doesn't participate...

    When I ran my skating forum, I was posting all the time.. Seemed the right thing to do, be involved...

    I think many people are in and out of various hobbies. I've seen guys go from Harleys to go carts to ultralites to snowmobiles (and we don't get much snow anymore) to 4W to whatever....and spend lots of $$$ to get there, and then take a bath when they get out....Oh well.
    AS long as my job holds out, I'll be around.

    yeah, there was a year or so where I was hardly on ck5 at all. College made me pretty busy and I didn't have a www connection for a while. ;) I'll always be a member though... because I will never ever sell my truggy.

    When I reg'd in Feb '01, I had been lurking for about 6 months. I've never been too vocal (check my post count) but I feel like I know alot of folks around here, and have met/spoken with a fair share.

    It was small, but I was excited to see people sharing my hobbie. I remember when it almost disappeared. I think alot of people contributed, before there was even a membership process. (myself included)

    I guess I'll show my noobness, and only say that I got my Blazer in the fall of 05, and had asked a few questions about it before buying it. I got it from a guy that was just looking to get rid of it. I had just finished a rebuild of my Jeepster, so I knew I'd be sitting on it a while to gather parts, and $$$
    So I discovered this site from a Jeep connection that listed the Axle ID page. and walla....here I am.
