I'm Anthony - not exactly new... I have lurked and read for many years and did once have an FT account. Do you think I can remember my old username or email though?

From New Zealand and I've had a keen interest in aviation since I was little. This interest has now grown to maximising the value I get from flying and my FFPs, hence my membership here.

Cheers

Thanks!

Just saw this information desk and think its a great. I had been a long, long time lurker but since I am not really " computer proficient" I never signed up. I have feared asking questions along the way due to my "tech disabilities".

Just wanted to give Flyertalk a big thanks for all the information I have received over the years.

Wow! It'll come pretty quickly, then! Although most on FlyerTalk probably have work pay for a large portion of their travel, some of us aren't blessed with employer-paid travel. You'll have a head start over me!

*waving* hi everyone! As my name implies, I lurk in the darkness and come out when threatened. lol seriously, this place is huge and I have yet to find my footing. But I love it here. So much that I had to stop lurking altogether. Not to mention, when you're broke, it kind of sucks reading about trips you can't take. Oh wellz. Glad to be here, though and finally saying hi!

I've traveled while broke. When you know how to maximize things, you can travel for dirt cheap. You'll get there soon. Welcome!

Hello All!! I am FlyingLaw and have only very recently become obsessed with frequently flyer miles and stumbled across this site and immediately joined. What awesome stuff going on here!!!

I am a full-time law student planning on practicing aviation law someday. Been in love with the airline industry all my life an look for ANY excuse to fly somewhere! Based at KDSM and KSGF. Also working on getting a pilots license for myself!

Can't wait for the adventures that await!

Welcome! I have family in the KSGF/KBBG area.

Advice from someone who went for but never finished a PPL--GO FOR IT. Don't let anything stop you.

I think you'll find a lot of kindred spirits here.

Hello,

I'm a Delta SkyMiler. It's the only game in town for me, but that's okay. I've had a few bumps over the years but overall they've treated me better than I deserve and continue to do so.

I'm also a Hilton lodger. I've tried most of the big chains but I always come back to Hilton.

I found this site a few months back when I was googling something travel related, so I joined on the spot and check in and lurk periodically.

I thought I was a seasoned traveler until I ran into this site. I hope to learn some ins and outs from you all!

Danny
