Hello all!

Welcome to NW-Wheelers!

I've been chatting with @crash for several months now about the community and the time was right for a new owner to step up. I'm hoping I can revitalize the community a bit.

I like to go off roading during the early fall - my other hobby is fixing up forums.

Welcome all, and I hope to improve the community the best I can!

For work I'm usually in Seattle/Bellevue ~a week a month. My mule is in North Carolina.

Well, I see this site has been gayed up now.
Crash, thank you for all the years you kept this place up for us & best of luck in your future endeavors.
To all the friends I met & made here over the years, I appreciate you all.

I'm out.

Today the ads went fuckin berzerk.
I'm likely not going to be back much if that's the new normal.

Welcome! I sincerely hope you can revitalize the site. It's been my go-to for many years and I was sad to see it falling from favor.

Done any local wheeling yet?

I haven't - I tried to when I was up in January, but it started snowing pretty good.

My hope is to go back up in March and see how the weather is.

I'm not a cold type of person particularly when there is precipitation out.

I just come on here and there. I no longer run a RC forum. Facebook killed a lot of forums.

New format looks nice. Hate to see crash go but times change.
Facebook did a lot of damage...but here we are. I'm hoping that we are can combat it somewhat.

So, Blackbeard.
What is your vision for this site?
What do you think about ORV rights?
Is your focus on simply providing a place to chat?
Do you care if users use this site as a platform to organize people to at least slow the decline of ORV use in the NW?

~~ Trainwreckinseattle ~~ Enquiring minds want to know.

My goal is to provide a place to chat about off roading.
I'm not going to write a blank check to use this platform for whatever you want to - that said, I believe ORV rights are important, and should be fought for just like gun rights etc.
