    Wow! I even remembered my password. I’ll have to searching for some photos! I think I started on VFTT around 2004 and started joining group events in 2005. Lots of friends because of “Views”!

    Wow, this is great seeing all these names I remember from when I first discovered VFTT all turning up on this thread alive and well and posting photos. Keep them coming. Even though I only know these people virtually, I'm really enjoying this.

    My first VTT hike was in Feb of 03 or 04? I lurked for quite sometime before joining.
    It was a pretty decent snowstorm and someone on the hike was supposed to finish her Winter 48 on Isloation.
    Unfortunately I don't have any photos from that hike, but my next VFTT hike was on Adams with this crew!

    This is a great thread. I regret I don't have pictures. Good to see so many VFTTers still hiking. I think I probably met more of this group at the Boston Beer Nights than I did on the trails. I specifically remember Alpinista (Lisa's) going away party at Hooters near North Station. While FB has certainly run roughshod over Internet groups like this I still turn to VFTT when I want advice from people who know what they are talking about. Still proudly have my VFTT bumper sticker!

    While I don't have a picture I met Darren on one of my first winter hikes and we did Welch Dickey together with a group including Bob K who I also met for the first time and both told me about VFTT. Shill have a couple of my old polypro VFTT shirts.....but they shrank (that's my story).
    I was going to buy a copy of The Power of Positive Thinking, and then I thought: What the hell good would that do?

    I'll look for it, I'm not sure I even remember it.
