Everything about it really. Invested a good 12 years into this place off and on. I literally grew up on this board in some areas. Came here mostly to talk Jaguars and ended up getting real life lessons and value out of some remarkable people on here. I still miss Fargin till this day on here. I took quite a few punches from Fargin earlier on when I was just a kid but it helped me in the long run in understanding how to navigate through the many personalities and honest people on here.
It's a drag man. It really is. I'll miss jumping on here from work when it's early in the mornings and nobody is in yet to bother me. Or getting up on the weekends with a cup of coffee just to see anything and everything going on around here. It's crazy when I go back and think on just how long I've been off and on this forum. I think I'll be grateful the most for the fact that guys like FBT and Dakota went easy on me when I got banned and suspended for awhile for just being a complete [BAD WORD REMOVED] on here for awhile.
Can't even remember what caused all of that. I was still growing up. Had a lot to learn I guess. But they slowly but surely allowed me back on here. You'd think something so simple as a forum could easily be cast aside or set aside as nothing special or something you could forget about and leave. But it's not. This place truly made my days better growing up. Whether it was when I was younger in school still living at home. Or growing up and coming home after a long day of work. This place is awesome.
And it's a damn shame it comes to an end. Guess I am trying to get all my thanks and farewells out now since I'll be on vacation starting this Saturday. I probably won't even be able to jump on here on the 1st of June. Bummer. But, it is what it is man.
I feel very similar about this board. It really was a special place for me too. Hope I see more of you outside.
