OG here! Whats up?
« on: Jan 12, 2020, 08:39:49 PM »
OG here!  Been a long time since I been here.  Things look to have slowed down on the forum.  Alot of new names.  :thumbs:  Hopefully, they are all full of important Toyota wisdom they are willing to share? 

I have had to take a step back from electronic devices for a while.  NO, I did not get in trouble with anything.   :rofl2:  I needed to spend some time with family more, and electronics less.  Kids growing up too fast!!!  Two in College, (well one for sure, the second not sure if going back)  :dunno: and a beautiful daughter who is struggling with Extreme Anxiety, and Depression.  And a wife who is addicted to social media!!  :help: 

My poor Toyota has been neglected, but still starts and runs good and strong.  But living near/on the coast, is taking its toll with the cab, with rust.   :tantrum:  My old BFG's that I purchased from one of the original OG, Kyota, are nearly gone!  I mean almost drag slicks gone!   

I hope to be back on here more.  At least once in a while!

Your Cheesy Moderator, Cheesemaker!!   :shades:

Hey Cheese….

I understand your situation.  For me, family and my health comes before anything to do with toys, wheels, and social media.

I believe cell phones and social media can become an OCD quickly and can be just as addictive as drugs or gambling.

If I had a daughter, my focus would be on her total and complete mental and physical health.  I believe diet is a major factor in almost all health issues.

Unfortunately, is seems easy to spend WAY too much time on sites like this.

Social media today has good, bad, and very ugly.

Stay focused on your family.  You can always pop on here for a few minutes to get a little personal distraction and temporary escape from your reality.

Living on the coast comes with some corrosive air.  Of course, keeping a vehicle garaged or covered to help reduce moisture or condensation and help to prevent rust.  Bald tires…..  No Bueno!

All the best to you and your family. :biggthumpup:

Thanks Gnarls!  I have a very small garage, and a shop.  I would park my truck in the shop, but its out back, and always full with stuff.  My RV storage shed is full too!   :rofl2:  But its has a rather large pile of Yota parts that I was given for free.  Which I could make some nickels if I were to sort it all out, and weed out the stuff I don't need.  But I have a back up car, 2000 Ford Fuckus (Focus) ZK3, which is my GoCart, or Fuckus I call it.  Depends on the mood I am at when driving it!  :driving:

Cheesy! :smooch:

I come and go as well - a lot of the OG's have taken to the trails, or submitted to life's demands :yesnod: Good to see you back!
