    I can think of only one thing that I have done that much.

    The adage that holds water; 1.1+ years in real time at one thing should make you an expert.

    I see a lot of people doing the same thing way longer and are still floundering at it.

    Like the current stereotypical middle aged housewife.

    Think we're forgetting other levels of expertise. How bout all the stoke that gets dragged in here. It's seasonal for sure, but there's a year round current. You don't have to be doing figure 11's down 55% to bring it either. There are many...

    Add IAS to dunfree in the human condition judge category, and put him at the top of the writing expert category.

    +1 for Benny as the locality expert, any locale, just mention one.

    GregL with mtnlion for boots for chrissake! And skiing-in-jackson.

    Tap and klar for TRs. dookey67 for movies, DD for bullshit, Parvo for...something...really, the premise for this thread is kind of weak.
    And I guess that I just don't know

    Commonlaw has the timeshare game dialed.

    And I'm definitely sketchy, but I've helped out a bunch of mags over the years IRL and via PM.

    I think bodge is from ye olde English: to do a clumsy or inelegant job, usually as a temporary repair.

    At least that's how my British former roommate used it.

    Aw, shucks, I made the cut!

    Vets is perhaps the unbridled expert on Patch Skiing, fwiw.

    I miss Marshall Olsen and Tyrone Shoelaces, both experts on gear, imho. And nice blokes, too.

    I was going to mention Marshall, and say the same thing.

    ^When I joined TGR 13 odd years ago I must've PM'd Marshall just about every day asking him about skis and boots and bindings. I'm surprised he never told me to "piss off!" the amount of inane questions I lobbed his way. Met him once in the early oughts down in the front range and he mounted several pairs of skis for me super quick and super cheap. Never got to ski with him. I think he still reviews gear for Blister, but for some reason I feel it's mostly mountain bikes now?
    The sticky he had up in Tech Talk for years was my goto: the one where he listed classic skis (Lawn Chairs, Exploders, etc.) and all of their intricacies. I loved reading that thread.

    Ditto for Tyrone. He was a heavily presenced Tahoe maggot for a number of years and I used to pester him to no end about equipment and mountain conditions. No idea what happend to him.
