I am just curious, who started Pinecam? Is this site truly unique? Just curious, thanks.

Originally it was magic mushroom hunters allied with the forest people.

I first discovered Pinecam during a fire when looking for cams up here. I was really impressed to find one at Tiny Town where I drove by everyday. It led me to the site. It was just a shout box at that time with no forums. I was blown away by their knowledge of so much that was not being reported on the news. They also discussed what to do to be prepared for a fire. I got my guts up and offered my own tip which was well received. Wow - they acknowledged that I made a contribution!

The fires were finally out and I guess I forgot about Pinecam until 2006. My former vet said some things about Pinecam. Despite that (lol), I became a full time member. I was so impressed with the variety of topics and value of information being shared.

Pinecam was, well, a little less orderly at that time. Some the threads in the Living Room became free-for-alls for joking and silliness. There was one thread in particular where a man simply asked for ideas to rid his property of voles. It immediately turned into an impossibly fun and silly thread that lasted more than 9 years.

At that time, I was struggling my way (clawling, really) out of a deep, years long depression. All that fun was irresistible and I had to join in. I rediscovered laughing, creativity, and a sense of community I hadn't felt in a long time.

Then, balance was gradually restored, to some people's relief, I'm sure, making Pinecam a place where important information could be shared more seriously, again.

This will sound really hokey, but the people here at Pinecam helped pull me out of the darkest time of my life.

Just curious if Wayne is still around and monitoring Pinecam. I do not remember seeing any posting from his ID in quite a while now, but I also do not remember any notice of leaving. I just hope he is OK.

He did give a notice of leaving of sorts, viewtopic.php?f=51&t=216589&p=1737163#p1737163


He has popped in on FB community forums from time to time. If I recall correctly, (and I may not be), he's retired to Costa Rica.

Ah, no wonder, it was the Study that pushed him out, thanks; kind of reinforces my decision to try to stay out of that forum at all costs. I have nothing whatsoever to say about BG's response to him. Wayne, if you still follow and see this, I for one miss you terribly.

Ive been around the site for many years as well. And to echo Al's comments, pinecam has gone through changes as all things must do. What has not changed is the basic core of human decency you can always find here.
Yes, there are disagreements and snark sometimes. But most of the time, there are helpful caring neighbors that offer a shoulder or suggestions or action to help you in times of need. And good humor. And birthday cakes. :love:
