Really i see no difference in age, I mean beekeeping is not really age specific. I see it as a level playing field. It all comes from experience. That is what I like about beesource vs. talking to people in person. When people here some of my crazy ideas at local meetings (like treatment free beekeeping) they roll their eyes and say, oh there goes crazy that crazy kid named Mike again . On here, y'all have listened to my rambles, corrected me when I am wrong, and all learned a lot.Anyway, my reason for writing is this: If there are any problems unique to being a young beek, say college age and younger, perhaps you two could come up with such a list of unique difficulties/situations/opportunities, and present them to Barry as a reason to start a new section on the forum dedicated to "Young Beeks."
Most of the stuff you youngsters have to deal with is the same stuff we old fogies deal with, so we're in the same boat most of the time. Just wondering if there is anything unique to you folks (other than depending on folks and friends for transportation, for instance), that would warrent a separate section on the forum.

I have noticed many of the younger beeks are more down to earth than most peers. I for example, would rather bee on the farm working than doing anything technology related. Another younger person in our club is starting a "youth bee club" that would be associated with the club. I think it would be nice to know other beeks our age considering we are far a few between. I do have a classmate who did the bee club scholorship becuase his dad made him and he is not terribly bright. :lpf:!
