Roll call...

Offroad VW based vehicles have problems/insights all their own. Not to mention the knowledge gained in VW durability.

I check in most days, though I went several days without last week. Didn't even turn the computer on those days. Believe it or not...There IS life outside of electronic devices!!!!

FB is too much BS for me. I have an account, but VERY RARELY log in.

Snaps and Instagram I don't even bother to hook up with in the 1st place.

Just look in the right columns of the index for the Off Road Forum for verification of my participation here.

I stop by every so often. The lack of pics has made things less good even if it is not the forums fault.

I check in every few days, still wishing the pics didn't disappear.

I agree with Dusty on the Facebook thing. Recently it has been replacing Craigslist in my classified searches. Well offer up too haven't had much luck with letgo. Facebook has alot of downers someone always has to put people down on there.

Instagram I enjoy keeps me updated on what people are doing and gives me a good offroad fix.
But if I ever have a question here is the place to be.

I don't participate much in the FB baja/off road groups but have seen several STF members being active. I don't follow any dirt stuff on IG but follow stuff like fishbras, barstoolsports, electricalhacks, kidsgettinghurt, etc...

Anyway, post something on this thread if you still read here occasionally.

Every now and then, but not too often. Frankly, I get my fill of Baja Herbie on FB. Too much of a good thing, or so they say...

May have caught you out of the corner of my eye, but we were kind of busy trying to stay out of the bumps going down the old hwy.

There WERE some serious potholes developing in that section of road that's usually pretty damned smooth. One of them on the left side a little before our pit was tossing some cars quite high.

Actually the old highway is the partly paved road along the freeway that connects to the intersection out in front of Buffalo Bill's. What's sort of scary is that I remember when that WAS the highway...One lane each way.

I'm still here. I really enjoy this forum. I've been making good progress on my Baja but too busy to sit and post. Been reading a lot on engine build up and turbos... so, lurking...
