Identity

Kvuo75-b17.jpg

My name is Mike Teague, I'm 34 years old, and I live in Vancouver WA, USA. KVUO is the ICAO identifier for the airport I have done all my logged real-world flying from. (Pearson Field, Vancouver WA). And the 75 is the year I was born :)

I picked this name the day I first setup an account in AH2, not realizing how integral voice comms were in the game. So most people call me "kay-voo" or "voo", or "kay-vee" or some other variation. I usually know when you're talking to me, and all are acceptable, since it is otherwise unpronouncable.

History

I'm a longtime flight simmmer, starting with Flight Simulator 2.0 for my Commodore 64 in 1984 at 9 yrs old. Aside from the WW1 part of FS2 I vaguely recall (flying over a grid, with mountains on 2 sides), my next combat sim was "Jet", which IIRC was a F18 or F16 simulator for the C64. I also varguely can remember a game based upon a RAF Mosquito, which I also played on my C64 before the age of 12.

On my first MSDOS PC in 1994-1995 I was bigtime into Falcon 3.0, played a little bit of Air Warrior on a trial (compuserve, or genie? I forget), played the hell out of the free beta period of Confirmed Kill (later Warbirds) and Dawn of Aces but could not afford any of them at the time with the hourly charges, so pretty much stuck to the various incarnations of Microsoft Flight Simulator for several years (including being very involed with SATCO/VATSIM [1] throughout the late 90's- early 2000's). I dabbled in Falcon 4.0 when it first was released. I rediscovered the WW2 massive multiplayer combat flight sim genre just a few years ago with AH2.

I have been playing AH2 since tour 81 (October 2006).

And now it's my main hobby.. hahahahah! I LOVE THIS FRIGGIN' GAME

And, I still suck!
