Default Think we'll go over 100,000 today?

Hey guess what? I just noticed as of right now the Northern Virginia forum has had 99,951 posts.

I'll bet we go over 100,000 today!

So... I may be rushing things but this seems like a good occasion to raise a toast to all of you. You guys have really made this forum a special place.





And, a special toast to Tone and bmwguy for being great mods. Tone has been with this forum for years. Years!!!!

Can you imagine putting up with us all that time? You're quite a guy, Tone. (And you too, bmwguy.) In your honor these birds hop just for you.

Why do the birds hop for you? Because you've made them very hoppy.

It's like watching your odometer turn over!

My prediction is we hit 100,000 right around 5:30-6:00, and it'll be someone posting in the "How Was Your Commute" Thread.

Hear hear! You two do an excellent job.

You know, it really is quite an achievement to have this many posts so soon. I remember when this forum was created. It wasn't one of the original ones on city-data. In fact there was lots of debate over whether enough people would post here to make it worthwhile to have a separate forum just for northern Virginia.

And now we're reaching 100,000. That's a lot!

Even though I live in MD, I used to work in NOVA and my hubby still does. (Basically lives @ work
Anyhow, I live how people on this board seem to talk to each other and get along. I don't know why the MD or DC boards are so different, but nice folks are over here.

Well . . . we've had our fair share of disagreements and rows (including myself!) But for the most part, we kiss and make up. I do like how information is shared on this forum on different topics.

So, shall we have a pool? Let's see who can make the closest guess to when we actually go over.
