Yep. that about sums it up.
I'd equate it to being slower than smoke off week old dog poop.
Never really have figured out why. Some state chapters are bustling with activity and some are just (like ours) kinda' lame.
I think it is mostly a matter of happenstance. Some forums happen to have quite a few younger guys (college and 20's) who get together and do stuff.
I think a lot of the guys here (like me) are older (mid 40s) and stay busy with work, ballgames, etc. So, it's harder to have a lot going on outside our normal coming and going.
Well, maybe things will pick up. But, to be honest, with summer right around the corner, I figure everybody will be off to the lake, gone to the beach, out fishing, or (in my case) motorcycle riding or at baseball tournaments.
Maybe one day we can have a get-together, or do something.
But, the State Forum is always here if we need to ask for local advice, opinions, help, etc.
Have you thought about contacting users who live in Alabama? Most probably don't even know this forum is here. Click members list at the top of the page, then seach. In the search window, click advanced. Then just search all members in alabama. PM them invites to discuss a meet or just stop by the chapter, you might be surprised Since Brians a Mod as well, he might have some special privelages concerning searches and contacting and what-not
Ok, so no alcohol for you. But how about the ideas? I mean they'll probably need a LOT of work since the only people I've seen in here are 3 from AL and one from VA (who is very much invited if we have us a shindig). Or maybe we oughta just do something like coffee except I don't drink coffee so I'll have a Mountain Dew.
Hey everyone, I'm sorry I haven't been active in the past two weeks. My father died last week and I have slowly been getting back in the swing of things. Anyways if ya'll plan something from late May or on, then I will be 90% sure to be there. This summer I'm going to be staying in Pell City working in Jefferson/Blount County.
Yeah! More people in here! Sorry to hear about your dad White Noise. I offer my condolences to you and your family. I do think we ought to have some kind of get together. So maybe a fishing tournament is a little out of reach. What we really need to do is track down some more Alabama people and come up with a plan. There has got to be more than 4 or 5 people on here because every where I look I see Fords. I mean, I got passed by a 1966 F-100 today so I know there are people around who love the oval.
