Yep, I think most old posts are still there. But someone posted that there is a gap of missing posts that span about 1 or 1-1/2 years. I think that gap was fairly recent, say 2 or 3 years ago? Anyway, maybe 10% are missing but the other 90% should still be out there somewhere.

I find that using Google almost always works better, particularly when looking for a specific topic by a specific person. Here is some stuff from BCSierra:

loosing old members here ???? seem a lot are gone / going any particular reason personally I post way less because of less knowledge on newer campers AND because of sites horrible photo posting process ! whats your opinion /reasons for less participation ???


It's because we older drivers have been ursurped by younger owner/drivers with little or no experience, but who read an article somewhere on the "net" that now makes them the authority. I have been ambushed several times and why you don't see me posting as often.

I've got five million accident free miles as of last month. I used to spend many years pulling cars, pickups, big trucks and a few rv's from ditches and hung up on guardrails. I know what I'm talking about but recently I was pm'ed and told not to post this because I was out of touch.

Just recently my youngest decided rv'ing was not for her anymore and bought an old boat. Well she has lived in So America for 30 yrs. She knows the territory and lack of roads quite well. There's more water than roads. For her it was a wise decision. It made sense. Announcing here on the forums - you'd have thought she was a traitor. It was just her way of saying goodbye.

Well for me, I sold my sig rig yesterday and I'll be returning to my sailboat in Panama. So Robert Ryan you may be seeing this old cowboy down under sometime in the future.

But for now, goodbye and good luck.

Your oldest posts are still out there, you just have to use the advanced option to make it look in the “Archive - over one year ago”. It shows your last post to be on 4/08/11. That may not be true however, because there has been a problem for a while now with the search engine not displaying posts that are more than a year old, but less than maybe 5-6 years old. It doesn’t seem to find those at all. It found 165 of your old posts though, going all the way back to your first post on 9/22/05.

At any rate, welcome back, and glad you’re still TC’ing.

Still around, even after 16 years and my early days of trying to get a camper on a 1/2 ton, though my posting has mostly been seasonal, as its been seven years since I last took a camper out on the road (The big two month adventure back in 2012 was the end of the KIT's road, he's been in storage ever since 2013).

Sadly, the readership here is definitely way down. Alot of the time, updates on my bigger project posts tend to go without reply anymore, when they'd usually get a few replies with each addition.

I feel like alot of the remaining forum traffic has migrated into the RVLife owned network of forums (iRV2, Airstreamers, FiberglassRV, etc...), and I suspect Marcus Lemonis alienating a hunk of his user base back during the last presidential election period probably didn't help the user levels of the forum much either.

Sadly, the portal I used to use is long gone, with the Woodalls interface no longer around (I liked it because it had a green color scheme).

Hey quick question: what’s up with Marcus Lemonis and what’s the relationship with RV.net?

He's the current majority owner of Good Sam Enterprises, which owns RV.net, Trailer Life, Good Sams Club, etc.... There's even a "Dear Marcus" section in the forum [emoticon]
