    It's hard to believe but in just under 1 month I will have been a member here for 10 years.

    I've learned so much during this time and I want to say thank you to the people of BCUSA, some who are still posting, some who aren't, and many who have joined the site in the intervening years. My first post was.... a question about a Mora. No, things haven't changed much in 10 years. I wonder what percentage of first posts are something about a knife?

    10 years ago, my little family was just starting to camp. We jumped into bushcraft with both feet. My interest in bushcraft and involvement here have led me back into many associated activities like bicycling, hunting, fishing and carving - and it brought me into things I'd never done before like forging a knife and milling lumber with a chainsaw.

    Over the next month, I will add things to a box until I get to 10 items. They'll include something to read, something sharp, etc. Some will be new, some will be used. Some will be directly related to posts I've made in the past. None will be incredibly expensive but none will be junk. I'll bump this thread by way of adding items until all 10 are listed.

    I need to limit this to the US, since I will be shipping a relatively heavy box.

    To enter:
    1. The traditional "I'm in"
    2. Don't be a troll. If I draw your name and then judge you to be a troll by your posts, I'll pick another name.
    3. You get extra entries if I recognize your name as someone who has been helpful, funny, friendly, etc.
    4. If you're under 18, I'll need to ship this to a parent or guardian.


    Items in the box so far - look through the thread for pictures:
    The Mora #2 from my first BCUSA post
    Foxfire 4 book
    Corona razor tooth saw
    Polished True Temper/Northern Tool hatchet
    100 ft paracord
    Three sheets each of 400, 1000, and 2000 grit sandpaper with a mouse pad
    Coleman stainless steel coffee press

    Sure thing!

    Extra points if you get an old timer to re-emerge.

    Ten years? Wow! I've learned a ton here in just over one. My kit, knowledge and things I carry everyday can be attributed to this little corner of wonderful insanity.
    Not in. But great GAW!!!!!

    I'm in. That knife alone is a part of this forum history just because of that first post. :)

    As an added thought, maybe when you update to add an item, you could add some info too. Like maybe something you learned? Or a thought about the forum in general and something about it that has changed?

    I think my first thing was on blades here as well...

    It would probably be a pretty high percentage.

    Congratulations on 10 years here! Very Generous GAW! Good luck to all who enter!

    Here’s to hoping for another 10 years of learning, skills practice, and friendships!

    This post made me check how long I've been here; not quite as long as you, but longer than I would have casually guessed. I guess time does fly when you're having fun.

    Congratulations on the milestone. (Do not count me in on this one.)

    Congratulations on your milestone and a generous way to recognize it!

    I feel like I have plenty of stuff at this point, so I won't be in on this and let some others enjoy the bounty.

    Congratulations on the 10 years with BCUSA. It is amazing how times flies. I looked to see and I have been here 4 years but seems like a lot shorter time.
    @stillman ,I appreciate your commitment and contributions to making BCUSA a great place.
    NOT in but thanks for a great GAW.
