OK we all know Sgtar15 has a bad back, he's here ALOT, I understand that, getting around for him probabally sucks to an extent. However I wonder why other people who are here alot are here also. Killing time? I mean its great for a hour or so but WTF lifes short. Someone said "your not here for a long time your here for a good time". Why don't you get out and do something..? Me? my mobility is challanged, and I'm otherwise physically disabled why do you waste your time here when you could be out doing SOMETHING? ANYTHING! I'm curious.

Life member DAV. Service connected disabilities. Somewhat restricts my mobility but not too much.

Spent some time in a wheel chair many years ago while recovering. Sure gives one a new outlook on life.

Lost both legs 12 years ago but I spend most of my time on my ATVs or digging in my 4X4 and snowmobiling and shooting so I have only 290 posts in a few years.
I spend almost all my time outside doing anything I can to stay out of the house.
My loss of my legs was not service related happend after I came home.

I'm disabled, with inoperable Degenerative Disk Disease. Several disks are going bad in the lumbar and thoracic areas, causing a few other problems. I check several boards each day, but none with the traffic ARFCOM has. I could stay on here 24 hours and never catch up.

I skydive for a living in Florida. Our airplane is in NY right now because of hurricanes and has been for two weeks, so I've been here a lot lately.
During the weekdays when I am working, I have plenty of down time and its brutally hot outside so I spend time in the office surfing. I do most of my work on the weekends.
I like the people here too.

ETA: I only give to 2 charities. DAV and the Christopher Reeve Paralysis foundation.
