I did a search to see if this topic has been done before and did not find one…so forgive me if this has been done already.

I know when we join up we add a little bio about our selves, where we are from etc. But with over 11,000 members now and growing everyday….it is impossible to go and read each and everyone. (Been here for a few months now and still have not gotten through all the projects)

As I read new post and topics everyday, I notice that several different members are from differing countrys….and can tell that English is not their first language by how they type (No insult intended)

So I thought it would be neat to start a topic on where we are from…kind of a “Re-introduce Yourself” topic. You do not have to do a whole new bio…or you can if you wish…and you do not have to be specific as to where you live…(This is the Internet after all)...but maybe just a simple “My name is and I live in (Whatever country and or state).

I did this once on a MMA forum I helped run for a long time…and it was very interesting to see where everyone was from. You get use to reading a persons topics and replies…and kind of forget that members are from all over the world. We had MMA fans from Russia, China, the middle east, Africa etc etc etc.

I will start off (Of course everything is in my Sig) Name is Don, and I live in a little town called McAlester Oklahoma in South East Oklahoma.

Bob- originally from Virginia Beach VA, now a plant manager in Martinsville, VA. So from surfing most of my life and living in a metropolitan area, to a town of 15,000 in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mts, and doing some basic woodworking and turkey hunting.

Its been a change for us but its one I’m growing to like a lot. Was getting too old for the big waves in Hawaii anyway, and have one more to get through college!!
