Welcome.  I am a Million Mile Flyer with United, but when I retired, I switched

from airplanes to trains.  We moved from NJ to Florida last year, but I don't

really miss NJ.  I hope you like AU and will be an active poster.

That's a distinct possibility! Kind of fun to think about...

Welcome, always good to have more pilots and train lovers on the forum!

I'm sure some of us have flown with you and you've been on a train with some AUers!

Hi folks,

 

So I'm a pilot with United Airlines, flying the Boeing 757, hence my screen name. I'm based out of EWR (Newark, NJ) and grew up in NJ. I've been a huge train buff since I was a kid, and can remember fondly when Amtrak still used the GG1 on the NEC, and sleeping in slumbercoaches to Montreal as a kid.

 

I've been a long time lurker, and finally decided to join.

 

Regards,

Oops, pardon me for not introducing myself.

Dry Creek is the name of our ranch.  We raise registered Texas Longhorn cattle.  We are located in Central Texas, and it can be pretty dry here at times.  Well, actually it is dry here almost all the time.  I am happy to report that this week the creek is kinda' muddy!

I've been using variations of my name since the first time I was introduced to intranet (aka the "mainframe") in college. It comes from a piece of jewelry I was wearing when the friend who introduced me to the intranet said I should pick a handle.
