Put on your way-back hats
« on: September 18, 2018, 11:24:21 AM »
Going all the way back to the trailconditions.com days, do any of you still around remember "catcall", our resident flaming liberal?

I happened to think of him last night and was wondering if anybody had run across his "unique" brand of posts in any other forums. Unfortunately I lost track of him about a decade ago and this idea just cropped up out of basically nowhere.

Thanks!

(There's a LOT of backstory to this and I won't bore you with the details here but even though we were galaxies apart politically, he was still a personal acquaintance and I was kinda wondering what ever happened to him and his wife)

I had quite a few off site conversations with Bruce, it was Bruce wasn't it?,  he was selling his place in Canada last I talked to him.  Then he disappeared.  I think he moved to Florida around Cape Coral area - called it "God's Waiting Room"

My inlaws are in the Cape.  Gulf side FL is definitely different.  We go down every year for a week or 2.  Maybe they live next to old catcall!!!

Way-back hats made me think of a couple weird dudes I've met here over the years....

Couple of crazy SOB's mostly debating political stuff. I had some throw downs with a couple wack jobs, to say the least.

But then, like 10 years - out of the blue. A guy named Coyote PM'd me. 10 years ago I purchased a little log cabin out in the woods of the UP. Mostly for snowmobiling and a little for summer stuff too. I was excited, so I posted up some pics and thought the guys would get a kick out of it..... A handful of the remaining board members still ride in the UP, or nearby Northern WI or Northern MI.

Well Coyote was apparently a socialist.
He sent me a private message, stating that he believes no body should be able to own a second home, until every body else has a first home.

My response was pretty severe. I think I told him, I worked twice as hard as everyone else and I deserved twice as much in return. That's the beauty of America. You want more, you work more.

Some people out there, just have some strange opinions about how American ought to be vs. how it really is.
He past away since then, and I hope he never drafted a will, so that his one home got raped by whatever state he lived in and his kids got 50% or less. That's socialism Coyote - enjoy the after life being piss ass broke.  :nana:

That "Coyote" had to be some hacker or something....the original, gpoing back to the TC.com days and beyond, lived on Drummond Island where his wife was Postmaster (Misterss?) if I'm not mistaken. Carl (real first name, can't remember surname) died more than a decade ago....

Lot-o-peeps have come and gone over the years....
I joined in 1998 ish. That same year I bought my very first "new" snowmobile. 1998 Indy 500 Classic. Loved that machine, regret selling it. We had several group rides early on, but it seemed to fizzle out around 10 years ago, although I still ride with a couple people on the board....

Rode with Carl part of a day on Drummond Island till the crank went in my Indy 500......... (pretty sure he was married)
He gave me and the Indy a ride to St Ignace.
Interesting about his opinion on 2nd homes. (I'm assuming he was a Lefty)
Greekboys idea of a sledding cabin is one of the few times you could EVER convince me of a 2nd home was a good idea.
Kind'a like having a wife AND a girl friend. Good God ! One of each is enough !
