Title: Hello from Upstate NY
Post by: webny99 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.

Welcome!  I'm originally from "downstate" NY (i.e., NYC metro), but now live in SF.
Done bit of road geekery in upstate, especially southern tier and finger lakes areas :)

Greetings from the state of Georgia! I am 17 as well, and I, too, have dreamed up some big road-related dreams. I have been to New York City but would also like to visit upstate New York. See ya on the forum!  :wave:

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 decided to move on from the forum for a little bit. I may come back to lurk every now and then.

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 (https://www.aaroads.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;area=statistics;u=13942) 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.

He was back the first time he did this, I think he will return.

I was not expecting this.  :-o

Webny99, please consider coming back to the forum. There are many ways in which roadgeekery can be manifested and enjoyed, but you can always feel free to call this forum home.

I do understand the fascination with "special numbers" (such as the post count being exactly 2222). But my suggestion is to take screenshots or pictures of it, but then move on. It is cool, but we must keep moving forward. If circumstances call for taking a hiatus from the forum, and 2222 posts seems like a good point of closure to depart, I understand, but just remember that you can always come back. As interesting as it is, don't let a number deprive you of doing what you enjoy. You have been a great friend to me, and the whole roadgeek community is waiting here with open arms if you ever decide to come back. Please consider it, and I wish you the best of luck with whatever you decide to do.  :wave:

I'm actually worried about him. His behavior has just seemed so erratic. He always seemed like a nice guy but Idk.

Just come and go as you please. It's not like users are either active, or inactive. If you cannot commit to the forum, then just don't post.

We all have weird schedules, and other commitments. There's no expectation that you'll be active every day of every week.

Yeah, I have logged in several times since January, just to see the user-only boards and such.

I don't mind just browsing around, but once I start posting, my time spent on here snowballs very quickly.
