New poster, long time lurker

14 posts in this topic

Hello, I've read the UP GR forums for quite a while now, and have been a poster on SSP since 2001. I finally decided to join the UP forums and share my thoughts.

I grew up in Eastown, on Lake Drive near Benjamin and Carlton, and currently am a senior at GVSU, living in Allendale.

I have always loved urban development and issues, and issues facing my hometown of Grand Rapids.

I hope I can add some good conversation to the boards.

I think that brings the SSP converts to 4 or so.

LOL, I'm not "convert", just trying to find an outlet where there are GR topics, as SSP has none.

Don I used to live at 1307.

Add me to that count. I came here from a link on SSP. I lurked for a year or so before even getting a login name. I have visited SSP just a few times since finding UP.

SkyScraperpage.com a general forum on skyscrapers, cities, urban etc... I believe a few of us UP - GR people got our start on that forum. It's dead now or it's probably on its last leg.

edit: Thanks mike

Welcome GVPeto! I tried SSP for a couple of weeks, but there just wasn't a lot of coverage for GR that wasn't overshadowed by St. Louis vs. Kansas City pissing matches.

:rofl: i don't think i could've said it better, but i started off there as well and its rare to see anything GR related... maybe because we're all here?

nonetheless, welcome aboard !!!
