Question Idea for Forum

I don't know if I'm approaching this from the wrong direction, but here goes.

When we post there's a notation as to how long a member has belonged to FRF & a little nickname under the avatar. I was wondering if people would be interested in a notation showing: "RVing since XXXX". The reason I mention this is a person may be a member since November 2010, but in reality has RVed since 1980.

W/ this additional info folks will know whether the member is new to RVing or a seasoned veteran.

Any comments?

P.S.: Even though I've only been a member here since early last year, I've been trailering since '05 (still learning).

Good idea revrnd; We are campers since 1969. We started with a tent ( the wood umbrella 9 feet with that smelly wax. After several tents we added a small closed trailer behind our car to pull our equipment and after we bought a fold down camper. First night camping a terrible storm bended the 4 tubes. We sold it the day after and upgraded with a small trailer. There AFTER WE HAD 13 TRAVEL TRAILERS. we BOUGHT A HOUSE ON THE SIDE OF THE RIVER AND GAVE UP WITH THE CAMPING. 3 YEARS after we restarted with a tent again but it was becoming hard to sleep on the ground again. We are not 29 anymore. Sold the tent and bought a flagstaff pop up. I was dissapointed with all the work involved and sold it for almost the same price that I paid 3 years before and got a new 1809s minilite. We are back again in the camping business. We love our 2011 minilite. Got several bugs when we bought it but the trailer was sent back to Middlebury Indianna from Canada for repairs. All is find now .
