What quite scary is that we look at these photos and a lot of them LOOK old.

Funny how time marches on. Life is short.

Beemerman was such a gent. Remember some hilarious conversations with him about cat removals. ;D

Beemerman dropped something off at my house for BigEd, that I was taking down on his behalf. What a cool person.
I have very little photos but great memories of rides and encounters with members of the forum. This thread is pretty cool. Nothing like a bit of nostalgia on a friday eve…

Talking about the past, I seem to recall that there was a token/cup or something that was passed between WD's, and the progress was reported back here.

Anyone know what happened to the  token ?

From memory, the person with it in their charge, left it at a Campsite Braai and some neighbours decided it was theirs.  ::)

On more than one occasion, despite warnings, the Bar people underestimated how the Dogs could drink.  :o
