    Agreed...Not folding up.
    We wouldn't allow that to happen

    Gosh. I sure hate to hear any negatives. I have been sort of dormant for the last year due to personal issues. I haven't made meeting or wrench days due to "life" I guess. I tend to think that a few meetings a year at local offroad places so we can do cheap one day adventures may be advantageous and promote more participation. But I would caution nothing would have changed my participation this year with oil and gas in flux and my business feeling it. I guess I just want to say I am still here and I still want to do stuff. Maybe I can get ready for October. And to all. Keep the faith. My best friends are the ones I can not speak to for a year and when I do nothing has changed. Fred you have been nothing but giving as far as I can tell. Thank you for your years of service. Ahem. More trail rides. Ahem.

    Just an FYI, a little birdie told me that we will again be at Marble Falls for the October Round-up with NTB. Still a couple months out so get those wrenches a turning. Always better in an IH, but don't let that stop you from attending, as there is always room for riders. Announcements to come when NTB has set the date.

    I would like to see the group make Scheduled meetings, Even though I have never made a meeting (Normally working and the ol Scout isn't running YET!) I work most weekends. I might be able to schedule one in the future. But I'm not going to make it to Dallas or Austin any time soon that's for sure.

    I would like to but I have no place to host. Living in an apartment now. I need to fix a front left hub, fuel pressure, starter, transfer case mount.

    Joe, I have an easy up and a couple of jack stands. What's wrong with the hub and fuel pressure? I don't remember, are you fuel injected?

    Front left wheel isn't locked in. I am assuming a hub problem. I have efi. I had to buy a new spring for the regulator in he tbi just need to install and test. Gauge says I have 13.5 lbs but all data shows lean. I would like to get it done. Let me see what I can pull off and get back.

    we are a loose affiliation of like mined people. titles are superfluous. we just need to find a way to find and schedule time to forward each others' individual agendas. I feel bad we can't attend this binder bash but life wins. I couldn't help holt this weekend because I had a proposal due. all we can do is try. something needs to change but we need to collectively agree what that thing is. money invests us, titles, processes and procedures define us, but do we really want to be that? does it really work? you do a fine job herding cats, we just need to find a path forward that incites participation. my .02$

    I really look forward to attending the get togethers, but sidelined for right now,
    AND when I get the scout on the road legal, I'll be running the mountains of New Mexico, till I'm tired, or to cold

    As you can see not a lot of foot traffic here. A lot of people have gravitated over to the Scout Facebook page.
    If you just Search gulf coast binders on FB you will see most likely two different pages.
    Pick the one with the orange Terra not the one with the group picture.
    Lots of traffic on there compared to hear
