Default What did y'all do with rwidman?

I go on vacation for a couple of weeks; return and he hasn't been here to stir the pot. He had over 20k post arguing with himself and now he's gone.

There seems to be a large number of frequent posters who are disappearing...coincidence?

I think Ron finally realized the entire planet was non-compliant - so his head exploded.

No idea where he is. He last logged on 3/26 and he is in good standing.

He's been talking about that trip down the St. John's for a while. Don't know when that's suppose to take place.

I heard his new computer was non-ABYC compliant so he is afraid to visit boating forums.

I hope he didn't decide boating is too dangerous for him

That explains why the Unarmed teen thread only has 2000 posts.

Yeah he gave me the lecture about it. Yes I have the VHF installed in my office and I listen to it all day.

And yes I did key the mic a couple of times. I feel like such a criminal.

Hay, ask him about hauling gas from the gas station to the boat in a red gas container. You can get 20 pages out of that one easy.

I remember many years ago, probably in 2003 when I installed AC in my cuddy cabin then posted about using my Honda 2000 on the engine bracket to run the AC.

Transferring gas from a small red gas can to the generator. His suggestion was that I make everyone get off the boat during this process. Yeah...we are anchored out for the night and I am going to wake my wife up and make her jump in the water and swim 100' away from the boat so I can pour a gallon of gas in the generator.

He's a good guy though, I like reading his posts.

EDIT....duh! I put that I posted about my generator in 2003 but I joined in 2005 so I guess it was in 2005. LOL

You suppose the lack of proper spelling on a over all percentage had anything to do with it. He would sure jump on the back of that bus when someone brought that subject up then he finally mentioned what he did for a living I kinda understood.
Got me tickled when he ask me if English was my native language and I held my tongue but wanted to ask him if he realized he lived in SC.
You'll come now, ya hear, takes on a whole new meaning down there.
He did have a lot of good information but man did he live by the book. If he ever did catch himself speeding i'm sure he sent the money in to the courts with a explanatory note without even asking... When ever I see a can I install a VHF thread I will always remember him... He was Dudley Do Right "Show-Nuff" on that one ....
Hope nothing happened to him. Different but he did enjoy THT for what it was to him anyway.....
