Anybody out there?

Seems like the SWB forum is DED dead. I still check in from time to time, but there hardly seems to be a reason.

Yep... I just talked to a new relative a few hours east of me who purchased a '76 CJ5. He's excited that we know each other so he can finally get that Jeep fixed. It's on schedule for early spring when the snow isn't hip deep. Now I can put a few skills to work.

My best to all during this New Year of 2016.

Good to hear you're still kicking, LEVE, and have a nice toy to help put back on the trail. A 1964 CJ 5 was my first Jeep, so they still occupy a special place in my list of good things.

Agreed. I wonder where everybody went.

Trying to stay connected. Ice is weighing down the trees and power lines. Fingers crossed the lights stay on through tomorrow.

Is this the only hammer you've got?

I'm sorry you got the ice but I sure am glad it stayed north of me...

They predicted a half inch to three quarters at home, but I had to go out of town the day before it was to hit. I knew that the power would still be out by the time I got back - we were without for 12 days once after an ice storm about twenty years ago. I had my son set up with gasoline for the generator to keep the pipes from freezing, but we only got a little crust that caused no problem.
