Glad you made it back safe and sound, don’t waste any time getting that Roadster ready, wind in the face is priceless!

Well; Itís Time

I was going to write about how I canít sleep worth a damn since I got home, or the Migraine I had on Tuesday that was the worst Iíve had in years, but a realization came to me at about 2:30 this morning that itís time to pretty much end the threads on the different forums about me traveling.

My travels for the next year or so are going to be pretty much local rides. Iíve decided to buckle down and do my best at getting my debt paid off and save up enough to buy and modify my next Roadster. I also want to funnel some money (and a bit of work) into transforming Chez Crusty (as Brad calls it) into what Iíd like it to be. Itís hard to write about Crustyís travels when the only places Iím traveling to are the Home Depot or the supermarket.

The thing is; I still enjoy writing and I plan to keep doing it. It may or may not include the topic of motorcycles, though and thatís why Iím going to let the threads fade away on both Badweb and the XL Forum. Iíll still continue to be active on the forums when I have something to say about motorcycles, but Iím not into doing a blow by blow description of This Old House there.

Now, I know that there are a few folks who enjoy my writing, though Iím not sure why and I realize that I love to hack these Snippets out, so Iím going to continue writing. The Snippets will only go out as E-mail, though; unless thereís something pertinent to a discussion on a forum thread. So hereís what Iím thinking.

I have a Snippets e-mail list that Iíve been sending these out to. Iím going to make up a new list. If you want to be on the new list, just let me know. Uh, make sure Iíve got your e-mail address. Iíll only sent to people who want to be on the list. If youíve been getting them and have had enough, do nothing. I wonít send them. If you get on the list and get tired of them, just let me know and Iíll remove you name immediately.

I just realized that if you want to get in touch with me, youíll need my e-mail. Itís: nmwprime*at*gmail*dot*com.

Thanks for reading.

John (Crusty)

Just a side of John, there is a “off topic” thread that would be a wonderful home for your continued snippets..........just saying. Oh, and welcome home, home to see you sooner than later.
