    Okay, maybe not all of us. Definitely most of us. I'm here not only for our love of miles and points, but for my respect and admiration of Randy. As you get acquainted to MilePoint, let us know how we can help you feel more welcome.

    If, like me, Randy has made a difference in your life over the years, I hope you'll take a minute to share that with him and wish him well in this new endeavor. I'm off to talk about miles and points!

    Agreed- I'm here because of Randy, and because of how he set a new foundation here:

    Randy has truly made the last few years some of the most interesting and rewarding times for me, and MilePoint looks like it will be a new and exciting way to move into the future. His generosity and kindness throughout the years is legend, and it's always a special treat when he comes to a gathering. Like Pizzaman I am here because I truly respect and admire Randy.

    I'm here not only because of Randy, but because of all the wonderful people that it takes/took to get something like this going.

    Randy has been an inspiration to many folk. I admire him for the person he is, for the values he stands for and for the community he has built over the years.

    And, I admire all the other folk who are giving of their time and expertise to help those of us who are not as accomplished as they at the nuances of travel. Kudos to you all. And, a great big thank you from me - someone who, despite trying reallly hard, never quite seems to understand anything technological when it comes to travel. So, ITA, ExpertFlyer, KSA .... they're all magic as far as I am concerned ....and flying itself, well, that's pure magic! in more ways than one.

    I am here be around the wonderful information and people. Along with Randy who has been very helpful and great guy to chat with. I admire him along with his team of staff and crew behind the scenes. Not to forget the people who have helped out and kept and eye on things when things take the wrong turn.

    Speaking of taking the wrong turn does site have a GPS? ;)

    "DING!" ... "You have post too much today. Time to take a break." "DING"

    Respect for Randy plays a big role in spending time here today, but I am also here to participate what I hope will be a friendly community open to sharing information in a qualitative (not quantitative) manner :)

    Wishing you great success with this venture, Randy!!

    I've got a few more urls, so if they get too long here, give me a call and we'll start all over.
    Seriously, while we hope to get there, we also hope that our combined wisdom and some of the newer technologies we haven't yet introduced will help alleviate that concern, which is a supported concern.

    Don't want to miss out on what should be a better reincarnation of a good idea.

    I'm definitely here because I'd follow anything Randy started!

    A similar site was once an important part of my travel and personal life... and over the years, things changed (for me, for them, life happens, time passes) but I've missed the community that was - the "family", so to speak.

    And so I'm here....

    Great to see you here! I think a lot of people feel the same way

    I'm so honored to have a friend like Randy and I'm also honored to help build this new community.

    It's great to be a part of something new, especially when it is a topic I have become passionate about. I hope we are better able to keep threads on topic without having to wade through large amounts of unnecessary chatter to find relevant information.

    I'm here, because ... well I guess because somebody told me about this new project and I'm always up for new, exciting things. FT is way to big. I takes way to much of my time to keep myself updated about whats going on in the airline business.
