I joined almost 10 years ago. I'd just left a job after 10 years and decided I'd get a Merlin pass and spend the year traveling the country going to the places I'd always wanted to. I'd designed toys for Chessington and Thorpe so finally got to go there (my toys, sadly, had long gone by then). As I kept checking the CoasterForce site for info and news I thought I may as well sign up to the forum, and here I still am. I'm busier now so don't go to theme parks nearly as much as I'd like, and consequently don't post much but it's still fun to read.
