    I've been reading through a lot of old threads and it seems there used to be many more active members. where did they all go? have they already bugged out? living off grid on a mountain somewhere? what happened?

    Long story, lots of drama. Before my time as well. Some trickle in, some even come back to stay! I'll let one of them comment if they'd like, not my story to share!

    A lot of ebb and flow - and yes some very old drama. Something that seems to haunt a lot of forums. BUT - we've been getting some really great new folks that bring new ideas and make great contributions! Fresh blood, lol!

    Some people just drifted away. Some got what they needed from the forum and went on their way. Some just got busy with life. And some were in a squabble, took their toys and went home.

    Personally I have learned a lot from this forum. I like the people here and the exchange of ideas. I like the sharing of what works and what went all wrong. We all are trying to better our lives and that of our family.
