Did "hardcore" DL fans exist before APs first came out in 1984? There are so many people on MC who visit DL almost on a daily basis. What enables them to do this? - their beloved APs. If there were no APs, who would be able to afford to visit so frequently (certainly with today's prices)? Back in the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s...were there so many return customers?
Thoughts on this...?
(And please, let's not let this turn into a "bash APs" thread...hmm we haven't had one yet this week...)
