I just realized this morning that we had forgotten to celebrate the 7th anniversary of this forum!

On October 12th 2004 I wrote the 2nd post (the first was "Test":) as follows:
announcements-your-feedback/topic2.html#p2

...and we have since added more posts, we have as today 76123 posts spread out over 11001 topics. Close to 10 000 members!

Happy 7th everyone!

Greetings from Santiago de Compostela,
Ivar

Thanks Ivar,

I would not have walked this May, had I not found this Forum and read the invaluable and kind advice of so many past and present pilgrims. You have helped enrich and change my life.

Kindest regards,
Annelise (Denmark)

Congratulations Ivar!!!
I remember the first few posts were dedicated to Santiago de Compostela but it was soon hijacked by peregrinos!!
My first post (I've just looked it up) was on Nov 2nd, 2004. I wrote about the beautiful CD
' Miracles of Santiago by the Anonymous 4.

Congratulations, Ivar and everyone who got the forum started. Reading the wealth of information and the wonderful blogs is almost as addictive as walking the many caminos.

Ivar, we are all so very fortunate that you have put such a huge amount of work into setting up and running the forum. I know that I personally have benefited hugely from the contacts I have made here- and I am grateful for the support I have received from fellow Forum members, before, during and since my Camino in 2008.
Here's to the next 7 :mrgreen:

Thank you Ivar, I returned from my Camino lost and feeling adrift from my life. This forum helped me reconnect with the spirit of the way and remind me of the enormous blessings I have been lent to help me along my path. May it continue for many more years bringing ALL pilgrims together.

Greetings from Santiago de Compostela,

So here it is January 2018, not quite another 7 years, and I see this old thread due to the new similar threads feature. It looks like over 40,000 threads and 500,000 posts have been ADDED.

Another job well done Ivar.
