Eccb

I just wanted to tell y'all that I went to Tampa for a long weekend - my annual "To hell with all this snow and cold" spree. I took an opportunity to drive a couple hours to have lunch with Charlie Brown and see his bus. Charlie is looking well and is in great spirits; I had a blast with him! I got to see his newest short bus and watch it pi$$ coolant for a moment. I also got to meet Shawn, a good friend of his who's given him quite a bit of assistance over the years.

A good time was had by all! It was the first time my wife had laid eyes on a stripped out skoolie. She thought there was a lot of room in it. When I told her I was planning to buy about 3x that much room (12 ft vs 36 behind the driver's seat) she was appropriately impressed.

Roxy was working; she sent her regrets. I'll meet her next time.

Glad to hear ECCB is doing well. What will it take to get him reinstated here??? His contributions here were enormous and he put a lot into helping make this forum a great resource.

How about it Moddies? Personally, I feel like he got the short end of the stick from the attack that was made on him. C'mon guys and gals...

Bring back ECCB!

Thanks for the update. Was wondering just this morning how he was making out. Isnít their wedding in just a few days?

THe site admins were pretty clear that they didn't want to let him back on. They closed the last thread asking about it, and I predict the same thing will happen to this one.

ECCB has been helpful to many on this site including me.A little spirited conversation is not a reason to be banned temp suspension maybe but it has been long enough reinstate him please!
