Make that 8 years. I posted too early this am.
09/24/2004 - was the first post of the then newly formed 50+ forum.
I find it interesting that those that started are now 8 years older (duh), and I would guess that a graph of the mean age might show an increase, or at least an increased range. We now have guys in their 80's, many in their 70's, and 60-69 is extremely common.
There have been hundreds of folks post and leave - some of us stubborn types have stayed. Attitudes and outlook have changed (at least mine have), injuries and deaths have occurred.
Were you here when the forum started?
Here is the first post by the then owner of BFN, Joe Gardner:
