We gather, We the Portaleers,
Taken from our place,
With no Celebration, no Cheers.

But, from our posts we will not balk,
For we liveth again,
Here at CAP TALK


Many Portal regulars will no-doubt take refuge here.  I had some good relationship going over there across the nation.  Let us all meet here and insure our links are not severed.

Refugees??? or illegal aliens?  Right off hand it looks like many of the Portal members have already come over to CAP Talk. But can CAP Talk replace the Portal? I don't think so.

I, the undersigned, a refugee of Civil Air Portal have crossed many a border with the notion that I would be given refugee status here in the CAP Talk forum....

Back during Katrina local people in my area started calling the influx of people to our area "Revacuees."  I tried to enter into the American Lexicon, but it stayed pretty local.

As for replacing the "Portal?"  I don't think replacing is the word...rather the Portaleer presence will be assimulated into CAPTALK.

Resistance is futile???

Well, looks like this will be my home for a while.

As the unoffical Minister Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the former Republic of the Portal, your status is confirmed.  That is until the moderator sees my usurpations. :D

All of my best to Tedda and a well deserved "Thank you for all that you have provided for us" at that, I to find that the only folks that seem to be posting to this and similar threads on CAP Talk today seem to be former portal people. I was just a fly on the wall in the Portal, listening and learning but never posting .

To those natives of CAP Talk, I thank you for giving us this peace and sanctuary. I can think of some other boards wherein the "residents" would have snappy quips and comments for those of us that are actually grieving. This speaks to me of the character of this board and its members. You know what they say about first impressions. Thanks for the new space and I firmly believe that if moderated well, both the native CAP Talkers and Portaleers (?) (not like Langoleers) may benefit from the discussions that will take place here.

Tedda, If you ever make it to Lexington, KY., message me first because I would like to shake the hand of the man that formed the Portal!

While I was a frequent lurker of the Portal, I don't think I was ever officially a Portalperson.  I didn't have my own custom Portalperson icon, nor did I post on the forums... I just read a lot.  I, too, miss CivilAirPortal and feel that there is a gap in the online CAP community.

In any case, know that all of you Portal revacuees (I do like that term!) are welcome here at CAPTalk.  Discuss everything, discuss often, and post with professionalism.  Welcome aboard!  :)

Good to see you here...I give it a few days before the Ole Portal People start feeling comfortable.

I never got a portal person  :(, out of jest I had suggested Service Cap with cloud-n-darts and short sleeve shirt.

Ho-hum (oh no!!!  I said Ho-Hum, only Grandpa says that!!!   :'(  I want my portal back!)

I'm here.

Hey Padre...I'm glad you could make it.  What is cool about this thread is that I, and others, will be able to look it up as a quick reference for missed PMs.  I'm needing to PM Al Sayre and Grant Henninger as a matter of fact.

Lurkers are welcome here too.  There were many lurkers...some days, then the Portal was hitting some 30 on line at once, a good 12 or so would be lurkers.


Revacuees ;)  This term was originally a slip of the mouth by a reporter for a local radio station, then it took on additional meaning when Rita came through and the evacuated of New Orleans that were in Houston et al were on the move once more.

Man, after putting in a month and earning a bunch of stripes I've been kicked back down to recruit level.  I'm actually an eyewitness (so to speak) of the destruction of the portal as I was reading a thread when it happened.  All of a sudden it started asking for an administrators password and after about a half hour started looking much like it does now. 

I enjoyed the portal quite a bit as it was a very active site.  No offense to some other sites but the blog-based sites aren't terribly easy to comment in and read compared to the portal.  This site isn't bad but didn't seem to have a lot of use or about as much as the CAP board on military.com which has never been terribly well utilized. 

So, I'll give this one a try.

Dang,  by force of habit after turning on my 'puter, I went to Portal. Habits are hard to break.
River, I know what you mean about your stripes, I was half way to getting my 3rd stripe which I would have gotten in December, December of 2008 that is.

I guess I was one of the lucky ones to have "Dual Citizenship", but I already miss the Portal.  Welcome to all.

Just one more refugee from the Portal signing in. Glad to see y'all. Received a great education concerning CAP from the Portal. I'm hoping to continue to get great insight into CAP at CAPTalk.
