Ok Who is still left from the Original Gang here Lance, Droff,Phillipi Nobody, Whats new with everyone. I am still alive but no longer living south of the Seattle Cesspool. I pulled up stakes and caught the last train for the coast, I am now living on the Worshington coast rapidly rusting away! King County and Seattle were sucking me dry with taxes and fees and traffic and shootings muggings and general lawlessness. Well Money was a deciding factor too.

My home in Kent WA I built in 1995 had appreciated so much I was stunned. Then came along a young man whom had a truckload of money and made me an offer I couldn't refuse. I sold in a moment and headed to the coast bought me a nice small home with a big shop and I paid Cash money and had a couple of dollars left so made some significant major improvements. The upside is I do not have a mortgage any more and am free and clear of debt. The down side is I spend all the cash from the old place on this one and now I am spent out! The bank account looks like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid made a withdrawal from my account!! Oh well if ya got it spend it, if ya ain't got it borrow it and spend it!!!!

Ok someone else's turn. :cool:

Congrats on the sale/purchase. I know of a few people that have become millionaires by living in the right place for long enough. I however am not one of them! Just a regular working schmuck. My house has doubled in value, but that really doesn't mean much unless I plan to leave the area. 500k houses are selling as fast they can build them in my town. All I can figure is it's the pressure of Seattle pushing this far north.

I can still be spotted in the EB out in mountains. Down to daily driving the 97 exploder while I eagerly await the release of the new Bronco. Got three new drivers on the way so who knows what they'll end up in. I certainly wouldn't kick a pristine Bronco II out of the driveway.

As for the forum, sadly the various social media platforms really killed off all forums. I do intend to keep the forum running, if only for reference. Even better if the occasional question and answer continue to roll in.

Hey Nobody,

Yeah Facebook is where a lot of people go but I don't enjoy all the drama on there. Right now all you hear from media and Facebook is Corona Virus Covid 19. I have been virus ed to death and I just want to get back to some normal non lethal discussions. Ahh the fate of the world wins out I guess. Hey has Pat been on and is he still doing the BII thing? I wonder what some of the old regulars are up to. I no longer have a BII but I still have my Monster 2.9 I built. I turn it over about 1 times a month and it still turns nice. I figured if I don't see a smokin deal on a nice BII, I may build me an air-boat / River sled and do some serious fishin!! I figure a Blown 2.9 should make a nice little air-boat motor. :eek: :cool:

Still kickin here... but havent been doing much... had surgery on my right hand last fall and coudnt even work a pc mouse all winter... thumb is still kinda messed up but it will get better with time and use. Had plans of doing a motor swap in my '85 xls over the winter but of course that never got done... my gray '85 is still going and did a good job of pushing snow over the winter but the release bearing is now making noise... green '84 still runs nice so thats the engine I want to swap over to the xls but Im not quite ready for that task just yet so I'll call in some help once this social distancing thing is over... not much else to report... cept I had the bike out for the time this year a few days ago... no wheelies but I can hang on to it for a highway cruise... and its golpher season so thats more good hand rehab;)

Hey lance, Does gopher season warrant some rehab on them with like a 12 GA? Nothing happened over the winter here and looks like mid summer before anything will happen. I am thinking next year may be the year of fixing up a BII for my Monster 2.9. Either that make me an Air boat. Fishing seems like a good endevour about now.. Well hang in there Lance maybe this corona think will ease soon. :cool:

Shotguns arent much fun on golphers unless they're close and on the run.Lol.... this years new toy is a Ruger Mini 14... a small but fast .223 cal bullet that can reach out 300+ yards, the scope is specifically built for the .223 trajectory so whether you set it for 50yds or 300yds its spot on, and I added a front mounted bipod... bit too small for deer but great for small game from golpher to coyote.
