I'm done...
« on: September 26, 2018, 05:44:39 AM »

Recent posts by a few of our more active posters have finally pushed me beyond my time constraints to keep replying...

I guess they won!

I have too many projects that I have to rate as 'more important' at this point. 

I'm still working on my book about MT and I may have to come back occasionally to do a little more 'research'. 

I also may be slipping in occasionally to post or retrieve some info from the history board. 

Right now I'm working on a very significant potential 'find' from the CCC camp era.

Right now I don't have a better place to post it so I'll have to make do here.

MT was a lot of fun the first several years and I met some great people and developed some decent friends. 

Lots of reasons I can point to for the demise of MT.  Probably Twitter and Facebook are the main two.  There's also the obvious bombardment by a few posters that seem intent on chasing anyone that doesn't look and act and doesn't appear to have as much money as they all think they do.  Nice bunch to leave it to I guess. 

I've received several private messages and emails from some of the more 'quiet' posters over the last couple of weeks. 

Sorry, I tried...   but one can only do so much against 'many'. 

Thank you for the offers of prayer.   If you really want to do something to help me then pray for my wife. 

She's having some severe issues with her ankles and especially her left one.  This goes back about 8 years when she was diagnosed with Lupus.  A common treatment for Lupus is high doses of Prednisone which is a steroid.  We've been to see several doctors from Monroe to Ann Arbor to Downriver.  At one point a foot specialist told her to go see a chiropractor.  We finally got an appointment with a local orthopedic surgeon that did an MRI and found the issue was that the joints in her ankles had deteriorated and was most likely caused by the Prednisone over the years.  She's been off it for a few years now so hopefully we won't find any more issues down the road. 

Thank you to all the good posters over the years.

Keep in touch BRD, and good luck.  Know that you have been the backbone of this forum since the start, and thanks for being a voice of reason.

I guess the option of stopping the back and forth never occurred to Dog as being an option?

It seems like it is all or nothing anymore.

Happy travels Dog.

I guess acting like an adult and being an adult are 2 different things.

ROFLMFAO, FFF!

Certainly you had to say that in jest even though I doubt it.  Still, I will continue to pray for you and wish for your well being.

I'm still laughing, thanks!

One thing I always noticed about BRD was, no matter what the subject being discussed was, he was always the 'expert' and beyond reproach.  Anything you posted he would rebut and far as he was concerned he was always right...  A legend in his own mind so to speak.

Like his RV thread.  I've been involved with RV's since I was 18 and I'm 68 so I have just a tad bit of experience and I'm here to tell you that pulling a toy hauler with an F150 is asking for trouble.  I know that as a fact.  Why I don't under rate my tow vehicle.   have a 1 ton F350 4x4 and sometimes, even that isn't enough.

I'd never consider a 150 for hauling around anything but the smallest pull behind.

Neither here nor there because in the Dog's eyes it was fine for him.  If, in fact it really 'fine' is another story entirely.

I'll miss his links and most comments but I won't miss his constant 'I'm always right and piss on you attitude'.

If he decides t return I'd like to see him be a bit more humble.  Maybe then I'll take him off ignore.

I agree with your take on what I won't miss.

He always wanted to one up you.

He was an expert in quoting you and then putting on his expert hat and telling you where you were wrong.  He seemed to have a PHD in everything.  Your opinion was wrong, or even worse you weren't qualified to have an opinion, and he would explain why.

I expect he will be back before too long.

Don't let those asshats run you off, BRD. Stay and prove them all wrong, as usual. Best wishes to your wife and healing prayers.

Prayer has zilch to do with it.  Civility has everything to do with it.  That applies to you as well....

I see New Dawn also saw that BRD always needed to prove others wrong.

Nice for others to agree with you!

I didn't detect much civility there.

Just an asshat.

Interestingly, there are 3 posters on this site who know exactly where I live and have been out here before.  You (Monroe Native), Livewire (who does electrical for me) and BRD who has been here more than once.  Having said that, I would think that if he really had an issue with me, he would come out here and be man to man about it but I guess being a keyboard Rambo and then bowing out is the upstanding way to deal with things in his view.

Oh well.  Life goes on.
