Old F.S. Member Having a Look

Post by Smilodon on Tue Mar 26, 2013 8:53 am

The Canook told me there was a F.S. board up again, so I thought I'd come by and have a look. Boy, it would be nice to keep up with the old group again (or at least some of them). Kind of busy right now to post much, but will be on later for sure! Very Happy

Thanks guys... Again, limited in time right now, but will keep checking in and posting when I can. I'd like to see this get off the ground again. Hopefully my trips to the TT/UK aren't over with yet!

Yes, things are very slow around here. Many have lost jobs, many have had to move. The tax-base and housing prices have tumbled. City and county services are also heavily hit, and even fire and police personnel are taking extra (unpaid) days off to make ends meet.

Both I and Mrs. Smilodon took steps to protect ourselves job-wise, but both of our situations are starting to backfire somewhat. So, we are trying to work around that. Kind of putting a dent in big trips for a while, though.

Last big trip was a 2011 bike ride to the Indy MotoGP round (with VIP tickets). But, we've been mostly heads-down with work and other stuff since then.

Have gotten to do a few interesting things though. Got to poke around inside of Atlantis when it returned from its last mission (before it was mothballed). That was something I have obviously wanted to do for years, and it finally worked out at the last hour!

No changes bike-wise. The garage has an extra car in it now (we needed an econo-box for Mrs. Smilodon's new job), but otherwise remains much the same.

Hidey Ho, and thanks for the welcome from all. I am a bit preoccupied at the moment to get much past the pleasantries (and they are pleasant), but I would like to have some more toothy chats once I get settled again.

I need to start a wish list of old members to hunt up and try to get back on here again...
