Hi, I am curious. Why is this web site so much faster than other web sites?

Less traffic.

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

Yep, volume of users. How many are on here? Couple hundred? And I bet
that is a stretch. At any given time I bet there aren't 100 users on this site simultaneously.

How many are on Amazon, 50 million?

Ads are the main reason for slow loading websites, followed by user load.

This site is not designed to be graphic intensive. Looks to be a forum software similar to vBulletin, which first came on the market back when some folks still used dialup.

Now, I'm coming in through the GoodSamClub forum, but the only ads I see are internal. None from outside companies. No moving graphics, no streaming video.

You cannot go to a news website without at least THREE streaming videos trying to run at the same time.

And as mentioned above - volume of users has a huge impact.

This site is mostly text.
Everywhere else is loaded with adds, videos or junk in general.

The slower you go the faster time passes. We are pretty slow being self quara. Therefore everything including this site is speeding by.

The secret to my speed is multitasking. I do NOT multitask, therefore I am slow. However, if I'm the PIC in a jet aircraft I go very fast,....while single tasking.
