I don't know if I'm classed as a old member but I'm back after a 2 year lay off (internet access is difficult working out bush). My new membership is on its way.

Willem is still here (I think he is here to stay). lol

Hi Ruth,

Unfortunately not! Life still includes turning up for the man - but not for too much longer. I have been thinking about how you were faring out there and I guess the place would look really green - so much different to when we were there. I am truly surprised that you even own a mower!

I hope your health is good.

Kind regards

Its 6 years today for me! But it does seem like that many of the older members aren't as prolific a poster as years gone by - or perhaps its just the sheer number of new members and posts that its hard to keep up :)

"many of the older members aren't as prolific a poster as years gone by "
Have to agree. Some days there would be lucky to be 10 new posts & rarely would you see a page filled in a day with new topics unlike a few years back. Replies too appear down but an increase in the people just viewing.
I suppose old members get sick of answering the same questions 100 times & getting modertaed for what seems like trivial reasons :-) Only 3 new posts so far today.

Hullo Eric

Where ya bin? Out and about by all accounts, according to another website...lol

Been here since 2002. After a self-emposed period of exile in 09, I was very graciously allowed back into the Membership fold. I don't post as much these days as times have changed and this forum has evolved from the original 'crazy' days. One has to think about what you post very carefully if you do not want it to disappear into cyberspace. The same old questions about caravans, fridges, GPS' and tyres do the rounds every monh and I refrain most of the time from making a comment. It depends how the question posed, strikes me :-) In my opinion there are still too many techical questions asked and not enough about destinations. But that is the nature of the beast. The site however has improved a great deal and the owners have put an inordinate amount of work in to making it into a top rated website.

Are you still driving the 100 or have you risen to a higher value of conveyance?....lol. We must do a bush trip again one day!

Cheers

If it ain't enough being named after a concrete statue I now find they have desecrated my name by naming a certain geriatric's pretend missan as Nev. You know the one, it's the missan muesli bar with a chev donk. The only comforting thoughts that help me survive this obvious low point in my life, is that the namer is a certain dyslexic chap who is obviously wanting in several faculties. ( Some say most.) It goes without saying he meant Kev not Nev.

I'm pretty new Rock Crawler. Signed on as a visitor in 2004, then member in early 2005. Some of the 'old and bold' have left, but many are still around, they just don't post as much these days. Like them, I don't post as much - or spend as much time on the forum. Being 'on the road' full time now, I have too much else to do and too many more places to visit. Perhaps many others are doing the same??

Still here but now scan the forum from an RSS feed on the Blackberry. Means I don't actually go to the actual forum so don't end up posting much.
