The “this” refers to both the tank driving and the video editing, but there’s more going on than meets the eye.

I joined the 1st Cavalry clan last year at the end of January, and in the brief time since then, in a series of events which continue to mystify me, I’ve advanced from new recruit to one of the ruling junta, a member of the quadrumvirate, part of the Gang of Four, so to speak – one of the people responsible for the success of our clan as a social community consisting of several hundred people.

We could have been a bowling league, I suppose, or perhaps a book club, but it just so happens that our social group revolves around participation and competition in World of Tanks.

It’s fortunate for me that such online communities exist, seeing as I don’t/can’t get out much anymore. I can log on to our Teamspeak server and be instantly connected – actually conversing – with people all around the country, and even a few from places as diverse as Denmark, Australia, or Brazil. I’ve made some good friends.

Having that human contact on a daily basis, when otherwise I might be devolving into a hermit-like crazy cat lady guy, has been a real gift to me.

What a marvelous age of miracles and wonders we do live in.
