Cost a buck to join in 1958.

Wish I'd hung on to some of those early 2-4 page one color Pike St. "catalogs", I haven't seen Tricouni nails on sale @ 8-15 cents each in some time now.

Which reminds me:

Hey REI ! I never received that ~$6.00 60/40 anorak parka in 1962. Would that basement flooding have something to do with this?

I'm still waiting.

First ascent with a camp counselor perhaps 1948.
Later joined REI, member # 00086048
Much later moved to Adirondacks, went to new REI store. I didn't have an ID card, clerks were shocked. I finally convinced them to enter three zeros first. Worked and they gathered around!

BobC, WELCOME! Thanks for joining and posting.

This is an old thread. How did you ever find it?

Mine is 6 digits, 204xxx. Got it about 1972.

Edit - got my $1.19 dividend with ID # it actually is a 7 digit number with 207 at the beginning. Still late 80s likely around the first few Muir Trail hikes in the late 80s.

This year my dividend is going to be under a dollar. All I bought last year were a few cans of isobutane for my stove, something that's rather difficult to do online.

The store is too far from my house to ever just go look around. I also found other channels to source gear, and more importantly, I have more mountaineering and hiking kit in my gear closet than I will ever need laugh 6 or 7 tents, 4 ice axes, 6 or so backpacks - you get the picture.

Are you serious? How in the world -- Is there a story behind that?

Reading the Valid SSNs section...

"Valid SSNs

Prior to June 25, 2011, a valid SSN could not have an area number between 734 and 749, or above 772, the highest area number the Social Security Administration had allocated. Effective June 25, 2011, the SSA assigns SSNs randomly and allows for the assignment of area numbers between 734 and 749 and above 772 through the 800s.[34] This should not be confused with Tax Identification Numbers (TINs), which include additional area numbers.[35]

Some special numbers are never allocated:

Numbers with all zeros in any digit group (000-##-####, ###-00-####, ###-##-0000).[36][37]
Numbers with 666 or 900-999 (Individual Taxpayer Identification Number) in the first digit group.[36]

Until 2011, the SSA published the last group number used for each area number.[38] Since group numbers were allocated in a regular pattern, it was possible to identify an unissued SSN that contained an invalid group number. Now numbers are assigned randomly, and fraudulent SSNs are not easily detectable with publicly available information. Many online services, however, provide SSN validation.

Unlike many similar numbers, no check digit is included.

For the record, I wouldn't go NEAR Steve's gherkin.
