I know what you mean Jas but if you remember it was originally taken down for supposed improvements but I think the guy that was running it got fed up with it and instead of handing it back to Thrasher, he wanted to kill it.

I admit that it was offline for so long that most of the membership fell away and went elsewhere, I personally come on the site at least twice a day but I don't own a 4x4 anymore so I cant contribute first hand.

We do still have monthly meetings locally and a few of the die-hards still show up and it would be good to organise more local meets around the country again.

I think that in general the off-roading scene has declined so much though and formerly eager people have done something else due to costs and family commitments.

Personally I don't want to see the demise of the club, I have had many hours of fun and met some really interesting people through it.

It is still a resource - so no, it won't be put down!

Sorry I didn't speak up earlier, I was in the pub with Timmy.

I think most on line forums have suffered, like most of my students it's all about instant contact via an array of social media.  There are still a significant number however who stay in touch and enjoy the sense of belonging, albeit to a very quiet club.  At the moment.

to be honest i come on at least twice a month but i never see anyone posting anything. I believe this is the first post this year which is bad considering we already pass half way though the year. iv just recently moved from milton keynes to Northampton so i am looking for a club to join so i can go do some green laning in a good sized group. will people from here be going to the billing offroad shows this year?????

Im still here.... just very occasionally.

Having moved away for 10 years and then moving back to the area i grew up in there doesn't seem to be much going on locally except for the xtreme challenge truck group who have the occasional meets. I been to one or two but its a different bunch of people who are very clicky. Makes it difficult having fun when you go on your own.

I really do miss this forum. Seems everything is on FB Groups now which people probably find easier.... but I'm not one of them.

*Holds lighter up*
