This community is an amazing resource for all Forest River product owners. The friendly and respectful atmosphere is a testament to the quality of the members and the terrific job you and the other mods/admins have done guiding the community over the years. Thanks for entrusting us to continue the amazing thing you have started here.
I'll post a brief bio about me and let Janet chime in about her. I started my first forum in 2002, it's about Airstream Trailers & Motorhomes (www.AIRForums.com
). Over the next couple of years I found myself really enjoying adding new features to the forums to meet the members needs. In 2004, through a random twist of fate, I adopted my first forum which was going to be shut down due to the cost of running it. By leveraging economies of scale I was able to keep the site going and still run the site today.
In 2005 I decided to take a crack at starting a small business focused on managing online forum communities. In order to lower my living expenses (and fulfill my desires for adventure and travel) I packed up my stuff into a self storage facility and hit the road to full time but with out a trailer. I actually ended up moving to developing nations where the buck took me a lot further and I spent 4 years traveling around the world in places like Argentina, Brazil, SE Asia, Africa, and Australia, etc. I would work via my laptop and wifi from some of the most remote places. Amazingly I was able to find good internet connection everywhere I went. The best thing about my trip was that I met my wife along the way, we had our first kid last year and now I have to hang up my wanderlust hat until the kids are big enough to go along.
We do not plan to make any changes to the team here. All the mods/admins will continue to lead the community like they have in the past. FRF will always be managed by passionate and active members of the community. It's our job to empower you all and listen to your feedback and find solutions to your needs. We are here for you and hope that together we can make an excellent team.
