I signed on many years ago with another name, to post on some saddle for sale ad.
Years later, wanting to post on some thread, there had been some changes and someone else had my old name.
So, I got a new one then, January 4 2007.
I don't remember when that one first time was, but it was loooong ago.
Since I didn't then participate on the forums, or not much, not that I remember, I guess that may not count.
Sometimes I glance at the date people joined and think of how much their lives have surely changed since they joined.... After almost 9 years, I now teach students who are the (actual) age I was when I joined COTH!
