5,827 New Members since Christmas Eve

In the last 14 days our community has grown by 5,827 people.

If I seem a bit slow in my response time, it is because I have been flooded with emails and am busy trying to keep up with the new volume of work.

Welcome to all the new people, it is really great to have you all with us.

Meanwhile, I am on 15 minutes of HOLD for the Garmin techie. We'll see if I have everything I need lined up for him.

Not such a good start to my GPSing this year.

Talk about being late - and I didn't think I was *that* late. laugh out loud

Hope everyone is off to a beautiful 2009. As many people have been off, and today's their first day back - they're already 1 / 73rd of the way through the year.

Don't forget - only 363 shopping days until Christmas. surprised

Last week we had 415 active members. We have been averaging right around 400 for months now.

It is enough to keep me really busy.

Miss POI

Active or Not - It's a GREAT Site!

And, we really appreciate all the work you and Jon do for this community; just as I appreciate all the contributions from the members to further educate me in my knowledge.

400 active - that still seems a respectible number. rolleyes

Like I said, just checking in. Was in Pittsburgh for the weekend. Jack worked great and got us to everywhere we needed to go. Great hot dogs and fries at The Original Hot Dog Shop. Another one to cross off my list!

Heading to Connecticut this coming weekend. Jack will be packed in my carry-on luggage. He's become a member of the family. Even my wife thinks he's great!

How low will they go?

Surely the number of new users is linked to the recent price drops in GPSrs. I'm just wondering if this trend will continue and how low the GPSr prices will go by next Christmas.

Amazing that in spite of the fact that anyone from around the world can be here, that you can find folks just a bit away in your own area. Downtown Cleveland these days by way of Parma, and Collinwood HS.
