    Here's to 20 Years My Friends

    I opened a box at work today from supporting member number one. His seven word post-it note message stuck to the appropriately named champagne bottle reminded me that it was in January 2002 that I first launched these forums. I honestly do not know where the time has gone but I do know that my life would be completely different had I chosen a different course.

    I am so incredibly humbled by all of the friendship and support I have received from you all these last twenty years. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. My job for the next twenty years is to figure out how to make sure all of this great information you have all painstakingly shared can continue on after "sj".

    Happy New Year to you all and my most sincere thanks.

    Thank you Steve. I think there are a whole bunch of us in this group, whose lives have been changed for the better, by the work you did bring us together.

    Yes! Thanks!
    One of the very few "chat" groups on the planet that is actually worth opening up - much less worth purchasing a membership in!
    In fact, it is the only "chat" group on the planet I am a member of.

    Wow, I am a new guy also... 04.

    Those were some days, Lawn Dart, Diggler, TJ, Crash... just to name a few that had less tact and way more knowledge than I.

    Bill is spot on about changing lives, the amount of information and help that has been shared is incredible.

    Friendships for life formed at every corner of the earth.

    Her is to another 20 years!
    I don't know where you've been me lad, but I see you won first Prize!

    Thank you Steve.

    This site is literally the first site I check every morning (after I get my coffee). The wealth of knowledge, the willingness of people to share “been there—done that” advice and the lifelong friendships earned here are all priceless!

    For sure, your hard work keeping things running is sincerely appreciated!

    Wow. I'm too lazy to check but I think it was a late spring night in 03 that I stumbled on this amazing site. Where people talk about Cubs and People with Cubs and do things Together as People with Cubs. Not a Doctor with a Cub or a Farmer with a Cub, but people with Cubs.

    I was and remain hooked on this Group. We all fit here. And, SJ has been quite tolerant of the antics. Even when Thing One and Thing Two showed up on his doorstep to eat, drink and sing.

    SuperCub.org is just about always open on my computer screen. Night and day actually as I seldom shut my computer down. It took me about 30 days after you started this to find this site and I have been here ever since. I don't say a whole lot but I sure read a whole lot. We have some great people here willing to share their experience and knowledge with all of us. Thanks everyone. Thank You, SJ!!

    SJ yes your life is completely different, as are all of ours. It has been a pleasure being a part of this wonderful family. No telling what life in retirement would have been without all of you, my family. Hope to be here in another 20 years!

    Thanks so much, such a treasure to my flying life as well as life in general. The people here have helped me, supported me and cost me lots of money over time,lol. Just kidding on last line. Thats flying in general. You people have humbled me, which is quite an accomplishment. I remember looking for a part or information about a mod. Would have to be on the phone forever or jump in the picku[p and drive down to dans then twitchells to pick brains. Who woulda thunk steve, laura and the knowledgable supercub.org members would have shrunk the world to a small well run neighborhood. Frickin amazing

    It is hard to believe it has been that long. I will echo the sentiment from others and their appreciation for more than just the technical content of the site. Many of us have enjoyed the ancillary benefit of knowing some of the finest people a person could ever hope to know.

    I joined in Aug. 2002 before I really new anything about Super Cubs but consider myself still learning. I think I originally asked some questions on CubCrafters forum and If I remember right and Crash pointed to this site. It is the only forum I look at on a regular basis (not every day but probably once a week). I don't say much compared to others, I mostly set on the sidelines. Thank you SJ

    Not sure when I joined, but being cheap, I guess it was a number of years after I first started sifting through it.
    A special thanks to Steve Pierce, Mike and Web for their advise and of course the enabler, SJ.
    I've mentioned before, it was their advise that gave me the confidence to tinker on our Cub, and then go and and get a license. (LAME in this country)
    One day, I hope to make it across the other side of the world and meet some of you.

    Cheers, Steve.

    Life changed. Life enriched. Incredible people willing to help, just because.

    I cherish the relationships that are now trees, grown from SuperCub.Org seeds.

    I'm pretty new here but I've definitely learned a ton from this forum. Despite occasional disagreements on here I'm proud to be a member and only hope I can contribute as much as I take away from the incredibly smart and talented members here. Here's to 20 more years and more after that!

    Wow 20 years. I have only been a member for 2 years and have learned sooooo much. Hard to fathom 20 years of knowledge loosed-on one sight. I wonder how many AP combined years are represented on supercub.org?
