Damn, it's been awhile...but hello again.
So how are things?
I haven't been on here in awhile but figured I'd stop back by to see how the site is progressing and catch up with some old friends. I didn't realize it'd been so long until I saw this:

Anyway, I'm remarried to a great woman, enjoying life here in the frozen north, and still jeepless. I do have my '71 Commando SC-1 and it's still in the barn, but even that is going up for sale since we may be moving to NC in a few years and I just don't have the time to restore it.
I sold the Scrambler to some folks in NH a few years ago and they are going to restore/fix it, and I just sold the Slamurai a few months ago since it's just been sitting for years and the rust was starting to have an effect.
I now drive and repair VW TDI's (diesels) in my spare time and we have three of them, with 209,000 miles, 329,000 miles and 441,000 miles on them. Great vehicles and the engines would make for a nice CJ swap.
I also do a lot of bicycling and have 6 bikes: two fixed gears I built from scratch and ride long distances, two road bikes (including a very rare and very early titanium Merlin), a full suspension mountain bike, and a new Snowbike that I don't want to stop riding. Between that, my hiking pursuits, work, and home, there isn't a lot of time for much else.
I still live in midcoast Maine and got remarried just under two years ago, moving 10 miles to her house, inheriting her 3 (grown) daughters.
Anyway, how's life been here on the short side?
