Default Goodbye Mr. Toes!

Hi Guys,

I haven’t been back in a while because I am SWAMPED, but moreso because I thought about my interaction with you and realized:

1. That I originally joined the site because I was planning on buying my very first Jeep, and I wanted to get advice on what to buy and how to build it, and make friends with whom I could go wheeling with later down the line.
2. During my search for the Jeep I encountered the Politics and Religion part of the site and started ‘participating’.
3. Things changed, and I never bought that Jeep, and may never at this point, I don’t know, but the reason that I SHOULD be on the site no longer exists, so I realized that I was only coming back to debate.

I’m not out to change your minds or criticize your beliefs or anything like that. This forum is not the place for the kind of debate that I participate in at other sites (at least I don’t THINK it is….). The “typical” off-roader is probably going to be, generally speaking, a certain type of person. There are exceptions, of course, but in general there seems to be a lot of agreement among you, and some of those beliefs are WHY you are off-roaders.

With all of that said I want to thank you guys for a great wealth of information about Jeeps, wheeling, building, etc., and for really stimulating and challenging debates on all sorts of subjects. I apologize if I have truly offended anyone as that was not my intent; I was just trying to rile you in to debate and thought.

I’m going to go my merry way now in pursuit of whatever tickles my fancy this week, but I would like to leave you with some thoughts:

1. When you make fun of tree-huggers, remember that they are trying to save the very wilderness in which you like to wheel, so you have some common interest there.
a. Also remember that when you wheel you leave traces of your fun. I hope that you are all conscious of what you do and try to preserve the natural beauty at the same time you are trying to conquer it.

2. When you complain about the freeloading welfare people and the Democrats that want to provide for them, remember something from a speech by Mother Theresa of Calcutta ( http://www.catholic.org/clife/teresa/address.php ): “On the last day, Jesus will say to those on His right hand, "Come, enter the Kingdom. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was sick and you visited me." Then Jesus will turn to those on His left hand and say, "Depart from me because I was hungry and you did not feed me, I was thirsty and you did not give me to drink, I was sick and you did not visit me." These will ask Him, "When did we see You hungry, or thirsty or sick and did not come to Your help?" And Jesus will answer them, "Whatever you neglected to do unto one of these least of these, you neglected to do unto Me!"
It has been a great pleasure to meet with all of you (especially Mr. Toes!). Maybe one day I’ll get that Jeep and be back (Oh God…. Not HIM again!?!?!). Take care all!

Oh yeah, if any of you want to call me an asshole or say “Hey!” or whatever, my e-mail is ourhouse@wowway.com. Later!

Have a good one...

People who go unchallenged normally forget why they think a particular way.

Funny how some people believe they need to "stimulate others into thinking"... or is it "thinking like them"?


I got one... 'If you dont stand for something you'll fall for anything.'



agb you really should get a 4x4. Its a good time
