Hello from Upstate NY
« on: May 08, 2017, 11:11:06 PM »

Hey everyone!
I'm a long-time roadgeek and finally decided to join the forum. I'm from upstate's finest Rochester, NY! I'm only 17 but have always an interest in roads, especially freeways, and am constantly dreaming up improvements to my local road network.

Welcome from across the Great Lakes in Ontario! I've never actually been to Rochester (only driven the Thruway past it), which is a shame since it's so close by. I'll have to go one of these days.

As someone who grew up there, I definitely agree that Rochester is upstate's finest.  Welcome.

Unfortunately, I don't think I can keep my account a secret anymore if I keep posting, so I have to stop.

That raises more than a few questions.

It has been a real pleasure, though, and thanks for the interesting and unforgettable experience.

Glad you enjoyed your time. We're good people, and mean well. Come back soon.

I've made the decision -- and it wasn't an easy decision to make -- to move on from the forum. I may come back to lurk every now and then. But not in the near future, and I don't intend to log in or make additional posts.

You can count on me being a roadgeek forever, even if I'm not here sharing the enjoyment.
It has been a real pleasure. It is tough to put into words how much I've enjoyed being able to talk -- and joke and argue -- with people with similar interests. I really thought I was pretty much alone until I found this place a few short years ago. So all I can really say is thank you! May 2019 have more posts than 2018, and so on for the duration!  :biggrin:
Nice to have you back to normal. I remember when I thought you were a troll, but you really turned it around and that makes me happy.  :cheers: for a great 2019!

I had nothing against the guy, at least I didn't after his first sabbatical (the thing when he deleted a bunch of posts that first time was weird). I don't recall what it was that caused Marf to attack him so many times.
