Someone from the gear test listserv posted about a new AT community that is currently being developed. I joined as a member and have been posting on the boards recently. Since it is so new there are very few posts and members right now but I also feel that there isn't that much that has been established to it is kind of fun to be a part of. I'm not sure how many of the members are wannabes and how many are has-beens as many of the first posts in a topic have been made by the list administrator. I have been posting to the discussions and trying to pass on some of my hard earned knowledge. But when I look back to when I was first starting, I don't know if I would have taken the advice offered or just ignored it. I found that I read quite a bit and tried to take everyone's advice which left me with a pack that must have weighed close to 60lbs. Now I know better but I don't know if that will help anyone else. Guess I will see, and keep on posting my 2 cents worth.
