Looking at the join dates of the members in this thread tells me that most of you don't realize that without Eric, Lawnsite would not be here.
He started it before there were forums as we know them today, back in the days of HallofForums.
Not too many members that are here anymore have been around that long. I joined after it split off from HallofForums and when Plowsite was a subforum of LS.
All that before sponsors and advertisers. He did it because he loved this industry. Not to make money from it.
