Hello ROC members,

I ordered an RTL today. I should be receiving it within the week.

Your posts made my buying experience easier. This is a wonderful forum and I am glad to be a member :D .

Congrats and I see you snagged a clever user name.

You gave such a spare description that I'm bursting with questions.

What color is always my first point of curiousity. How long do you have to wait? Did you test drive one? Did you get NAV?

We hope you continue to post and add your thoughts and opinions to the wealth of information contained in this site.

Hello again,

In answer to your questions:

I purchased an Amazon Green RTL. I didn't get the moonroof/NAV because I needed a minimum of 40 inches of headroom. My 12 year old Trooper went kaput and I have been driving a sedan since. I got tired of hitting the roof with my head.

I looked at a variety of trucks, and frankly I gave the Ridge the last look. However, it only took one test drive to convince me that this was it. Not to mention the reviews it received, and the posts I've read on this board.

I picked the name iROC for a few reasons:

1. I've been a Macintosh user for 20 years (iPod, iMac, iPhoto, etc)
2. I am now a member of ROC, so "i [am a member of] ROC"
3. "I rock" because I got a Ridgeline.

By the way, I've yet to see one on the highways and biways. The only ones I've seen have been at dealerships (I see lots of Elements though--I briefly looked at the Element, but I need to seat 5).

Thank you for welcoming me to ROC. ROC on...

How fun! We have some things in common.

I too am a devoted Mac user with all the goodies you listed. I'm not happy with iPhoto at the moment, but I'm hoping Apple will come through with a fix for my problems. Other than that, I have always been delighted with all my Mac goodies.

We also moved up from a Trooper that was 11 years old. Our Trooper is still going strong. My niece bought it. There is no comparison between the two vehicles. Our Trooper served us well and took us on many adventures. We didn't know what we didn't have until taking the test drive in the RL. It was love at first sight.

I'm doubly glad to welcome you now. You'll find that there's quite a crew of Mac users on this forum too. Check out this post:

Hi Truckin',

What a host of coincidences! I miss the Trooper, but am looking forward to the Ridgeline. Glad to hear yours is still truckin', so to speak.

Lot of Mac users! I agree, iPhoto can be...tempermental at times. Speaking of computers, I can't figure out how to get an avatar next to my screen name. Can you tell me how you did it? I searched in the forums, but still couldn't figure it out :confused: . Thanks!

Sheesh! I've got to get some sleep...

iROC, Welcome! We also had a Trooper, it was a great vehicle, I still miss it, it performed well when we took it on the beaches in Hatteras NC. I am looking forward to taking our Ridge on the NC beaches as well! Best of luck & keep us posted:)

Hello!

I just want to thank you all for your warm welcome! I will hopefully get my Ridge early next week :D.

With regard to the avatar I had already tried the user CP...no luck :eek:.

You may have noticed...I'm experimenting with the smilies :).

At least it is not silver primer.

By the way don't drive into the sun if you drive in or around Ohio, you won't see HER coming. Silver is sneakiy, Welcom aboard!

I've heard that about silver.... I get the impression that folks on this board feel strongly about colors :D .

I now grok avatars and color. The changes surpisingly updated my previous posts.
