Unfortunately, this forum’s level of activity has dwindled over the last year or so. Won’t get too many emails.

For me, I'm unlikely to check in on the forum unless I receive some type of notification about what's new - an email, text message, etc. I'm sure different people approach it in different ways. For me, if I don't have something that interrupts me, I'll never remember to check it out. Anyway, my two cents.

For some strange reason activity has fallen off due to increased activity on Meetup. Why I couldn't say, seems a wrong way to go to me.

I think the M&G are possibly attended well as the place has remained constant for years and the second Tuesday of the month time frame has also remained constant. Habitual attendance works. there is a calendar on the website that keeps me informed and since I have been in attendance since the inception, it is not difficult to know when to show up. I only miss if there is some event in my world that might take a front seat to drinking beer, rare, but true.

I would like to see more activity and encourage everyone to post on here more. You can’t wait for everyone else to ask a question or post what their currently working on, ie a trip, build or project. Participation begets more participation. I include myself in that statement.

It would seem that there is not much activity on this forum for some reason. One may be that many of the activities are posted on another forum, namely Meet Up, so why is that? Another is that some of the posts are hijacked by people selling fake passports, viagra and posting in some foreign language that few, if any, can read.
There doesn't seem to be much policing of the site and I think that regular interested parties really don't wish to be inundated with superfluous ramblings.
It could also be that it is winter and not much is going on. IDK
Not even anything on the calendar

Periodically I tune into this site to see if anyone or anything is of interest but I fid that if I don't want to buy drugs, passports (illegal of course) or I am not interested in Viagra or don't read Russian that there isn't really anything that might even remotely interest me. It seems that this site has gone way off the track of off roading or vehicle repair. What's up with that?

It takes more participation of active members to generate content and conversation. I know we all do a lot during the year but if you don’t share that information then you get a dead forum. I try when I can. I never seem to get my trip reports done and my planning is currently on pause due to family matters and work. Plus the holidays.

That is true. It does seem as if there are a few that actually do post on the site. Even if only the people that came to the meetings posted it would surely keep the site alive or at least more so than it is now.
The winter months seem to be for mostly drinking beer and preparation of the spring and summer.
I really want to get out but most of the places I wish to go are unpleasantly cold in the evening and there is a very short amount of daylight to enjoy them.
I do want to go to the North rim of the grand canyon but there are no services till at least May (closed now) and I have not ever heard from anyone in the group that the rim is on their list of destinations. Perhaps a solo trip in June is going to be on my calendar.
I should be OK as far as the vehicle is concerned. I passed the emissions test today and the state of CO feels confident now and I am permitted to be on the road.
