Whatever happened with this place?
« on: January 05, 2013, 12:33:59 AM »
Sometimes I think I've got the wrong site but (sadly) that's not the case.

Whatever happened to RMCB5? Did people just move on? Was it all down to the change in hosts/software? Sad.

It's still here. Some folks moved on, some moved away. Some had things change in life that take focus. We, in a sense, are still here. Not sure if it's any one thing. I for one work a lot, not a lot of free time. I don't spend much time on any forums any more. Research/trouble shooting is about it, but no time to go to GTG's or things like that. Maybe this year will be different. :)

How are you doing?

Doing fine, thanks. Was down at Randy's the other week, that's what made me think of y'all.

I'll be down there as well in a week. :) Happened to run into Winston and Pat out of the blue last night. Crazy.

I check in about once a month, but rarely post.  I think a lot of us comment, etc on Facebook now instead.  I, like Jay, don't spend time on forums much anymore. 

Jay, are you still paying to keep the website alive?

I peek in once in a while...... but mostly I see the members of this forum at the shop.  BTW - thanks for the support!!!

Maybe this spring we can have a GTG and try to get the crew together.  I know a lot of us are now married, have kids, or work too much, but it would be fun.

I would be happy to host @ the shop.  Lots of parking, a back yard to BBQ in, most people know where it is too..... ;)

No we moved - AGAIN!  We are bock off West Evans on Kalamath in Denver.  We are just across the street from where we first opened 8 years ago.  We have a real back yard.....

I need to update my signature I guess.....

Jack, yes still funding the site out of my pocket. Every year or so a check rolls in from google and ends up covering the costs (hence the ads). :)

Randy, I'm down for a BBQ, would be an awesome way to get us all back together and catch up.

I'm still here, though very infrequently (about once a month).
The VW's long gone and my MB sits in my garage 99% of the time. It even hasn't been detailed for almost two years! So I'd guess I haven't been so OCD on my car these days.

Not to hijack this thread, but I will be in town Feb 21-Mar 5. I would also like to meet and catch up.

Every couple of months I check in, but it's been a while. This is the first time I've logged in for much longer though.

I still have all three cars and just finished the Subaru swap on the van so I'm still monkeying around with stuff with wheels.

I saw Jay, what... a year or so ago walking across the pedestrian bridge downtown?

I think it's about time we did a GTG. It'd be great to see the old(er) ;) faces again.

Still upping your post count i see.

It's funny you bumped this. I just ran into Pat for the first time in a few years on Tuesday.

Things are going well here in Toronto.
Moved into a loft in a 100 year old building that was once a horse harness warehouse and spent over a year renovating it. I have new place being built from the ground up just around the corner which will be done a year from now hopefully which will be a much more modern place.  In the car front, I haven't been doing much car stuff maybe because I am getting old or I don't drive much -- I had my Mercedes for 7 years now and I barely cracked 35k miles!
Owning a car is a luxury for most people in the city as traffic is terrible, parking is very expensive, and we have an extensive subway and streetcar system and car sharing is an extremely popular option.
Recently I was invited to a launch party for the all-new C-class at my dealership and I totally fell in love in the car, but I can't justify spending that kind of money on a car which I barely drive especially when my current car is still in like-new condition.

Anyways, I do really miss Colorado and my friends there. I will be spending quite a bit of time in Denver next year as I will be putting my loft on Washington Street for sale in the summer. I hope to see all of you when I return. If you know of anyone interested in purchasing my place please let me know, I would greatly appreciate it.

I hope everyone is doing well.
