Ok so Im surfing the boards and I see that there are 8 guest logged on! That means either your a member checkin out the new threads or your a visitor takin a peep at the scene!

I am fairly new here so Im not a veteran of the TP boards but I strongly recommend you become a member and get involved here at TP! These guys and gals that make up the "TP Crew" are right on the spot with information and answers and have made it easy to feel right at home when warping through the boards.

TP and his crew are all travelers just like us and they try to keep these boards real and avoid all attempts to put a mask over it to make it look all "nice and fucking pretty" like some of the other baords.

There is freedom here to talk about anything travel related and as you have probably noticed...a lot of shit that isnt. B)

I would have to agree with ya TUI, being a member does have alot of advantages...the 2 big ones are it gives you an identity on da boards and you become one of da family. So guest, please make yourselves comfortable and become a member.

We are all here to help, not just T-Punk, not just the mods, but everyone here helps everyone, if you have a question or comment about something you are pretty much guaranteed to get an answer ( unless its some sick science or algabra question, then i can't help, maybe Dio can )

Time flies when you're having fun, and it seems, the older you get, the faster the years go by... I can remember when I was a little kid and the summers seemed soooo long, and sometimes I'd get bored and hope for school to start so I could see all my friends everyday... Now... the seasons zip through...

I agree very much so Carisia. It seems like now-a-days that the time just whizzes by. I can't believe I have been out of high school for 6 years already. I wonder sometimes where did the time go. When I think of the 6 years before that I think of many things that occured. It was such a changing time then, and it seemed to take forever for those years to pass. Which I guess makes it more important for us to recognize our goals and do our best to reach them.

I have no degree in sight either. The last of my friends to be degree-less. But I am not too worried about it. I want to go out into the world and find a job that is exciting. Not a job that is sitting in front of a screen in my cubicle doing meaningless work for the man. Not that all degrees lead to that, but the majority of colleges seem to breed people for such jobs. I think that is a waste of time and money to breed yourself to do something that I would rather be dead then to do. I would like to go out and work my hands and create something for myself. Business is where I want to be. Working the long hours for self satisfaction. Knowing that I created this, and its mine. Not someone elses.
