Oh jeeze what 10 years ago plus this place was hopping. I get Facebook became huge and we lost one of our main contributors but we gotta bring this back. Its been years since I sat on a lawnmower designed to go way faster than it was ever meant to go. Back in the day Rooster, Marc, and I would spend hours on skype talking about almost anything. We spent hours and hours playing some World Series of Poker that we were maybe 5% lucky with. We would spend hours trying to make the "boat anchor" opposed twin faster and more powerful. I always enjoyed the banter from George Herrin about that thing. I would like to think some life long friendships started here and it's sad to see it slowly dying down. There were times that 5-10 mower builds were going on at once with everyone sharing ideas of what has worked and what doesn't work. If everyone could push everyone back to the forum from Facebook I think we would see this grow to places that it once was.

I personally prefer a forum to all the noise on FB.  And the information is so fleeting.  I have some additional plans for the new year.

This forum is a wealth of knowledge! You just have to spend some time searching for your answers. It is definitely my primary resource for info. Looking forward to seeing what the plans are for next year! Thanks!!!

I totally agree. This was the place to be back in the day. There is a lot on FB but its hard to find and really spread out.

It's been years since I have been on a mower. Teasing Rooster about his boat anchors. :censored: off George was also a favorite past time. I miss the days of shooting my mouth off during the week just  to get beat on the weekend.  :lol:  I do still hear from what's left of the "Deere herd".  I dont Facebook so no sense getting on there.  Me thinks the old days are just that "the old days" Merry Christmas everyone!

Its been a couple years since Iíve been on anything myself. I do miss it, life is just so busy. However I made a lot of great friends and other connections that are helping me succeed in business today. What I wouldnít give to do it all over again now that Iím a few years older and know more about life.
I do miss George being around. I also really miss Bert. My Facebook isnít the same without him just chiming in out of nowhere to busy my balls about whatever he felt necessary  :lol: 
Funny you should post Howie, I was actually thinking about you the other day and wondering what you had been up to. I also saw some clips of the Old Goat Jim Klauss in a video and wondered about him as well. The few times I saw him at the track I liked his company. Hope everyone is doing well.
