Well I keep hearing from the wife how the forum has died, esp when Shannon sold it. Sucks, and it's sad but in a way it's not. Were all still alive afaik, so that's the same, were just progressing through life, most of us who have known each other a while here, the younger crowd who was in school, have now moved on, graduated, gotten jobs, moved out of state, but most of us are still close enough to attend events and do, we just can't wheel, monthly, spur of the moment like we used to. But we're all still here I know myself and Nicole will eventually get back out more often. Can say exactly when that will be, but we will.

On that note we aren't sure what to do about SETO. But we still want to have an event that gives us an excuse to see each other. We'll work something out. Don't wanna get into that still early.

Us, were busy, I work a lot. Just got done with an 18 day stretch. Don't have to but in my trade, in any skilled trade you kinda learn to take it when it's there. So I'm eating it up. Mostly do 58hr weeks occasionally up to 70 and maybe once a month I'll only put in 50. So 4-5 days off a month, can't do much. Loving the job, but don't have much time for anything else. Esp wheeling. But looking forward to the day we can get back out much more often than just SETO and the occasional harlan trip.

Anyhow, kind of a pita to do photos, and most of you see us on fb anyway, but our latest is we have a mini-me named Corbin, he's just passed 10 months old, and we both have new DDs, an '09 Seqouia and a '10 Camry. Still have our old rides, just don't have time to mess with them lately. 4runner and taco had been my dd depending on which would crank that day, and taco doesn't like cold weather so I had been driving the runner and it all of the sudden decided to act like the taco so I had to run out and buy the camry which is nice but it's weird driving a car. But at least it's fast! and has heated seats. Anyhoo, imma shut up and go to sleep. Miss everyone. Hope we can get everyone together again this year, we're working on it.

Dam, never realized Shannon sold out. Who bought it?
Last I remember Shannon had health issues of some kind and he was selling the tacozilla to pay the bills.

I was on here daily back in 08-09 then started getting into making 3-4 ton barn doors fast (diesels) and slowly quit coming over here. Got the offroad itch back lately and came back to find the tumble weeds blowing down the street.

Darcy knows more specifically when he sold it. I think it was early to mid 2014 but I could be off.

Iirc tacozilla was a few rigs ago, he built an fjc at some point I think, then a first gen 4runner on 40/60, then sold that and has some 70's gmc? Street truck now and that was around the time be sold TTORA.

Meant to mention all the new additions lately,

Myself and Darcy, Brad (mossyrocks), Chase (88cleve4runner), have had babies in the last year, and now Corey (vvcrow) is expecting.

Did I forget anyone? I think it will be fun in the future, assuming everyone is gonna stay in the sport, seeing everyone with the little ones running around and eventually learning the ropes. Just my take.

I see, didn't sell it to long ago then.

Yeah, it's been that long since I've been on.

Life has been crazy for everyone. I went from no work to 65-75hr work weeks and trying to finish up a rig with 2 kids playing ball is tough. I work 6 days a week and 4-5 of those days have baseball or softball in them. It's great being a dad! I'm not around here near enough but it's because I'm super busy.

Buy a rebuild kit and I'll help ya do it. I did the dodge. Wasn't very hard. Just pull it apart and lay everything out in order and put it back together with the new stuff. Spend 1k on mine to do it myself. I pulled my valve body apart and had a broken spring causing all my problems.

Haven't been around much lately working 70ish hrs a week and doing maintenance/upgrades on the tow rig any free time I have. Need to get on the trails soon and blow off some steam.
