A great loss for the forum.

Is there any other place where you'll continue to blog about your blood pressure?

If I remember correctly this is TAL's second tour of duty. So I think he's way over 10K.

I hope all is well for you and yours, Al--enjoy the fresh air this summer!

But please please please do use one of your <10,000 posts to let us know what you did about the parking for your trip to Portland!

Hope you come back in time, but thanks for all your helpful and humorous posts over the years.

I'm starting to wonder if I need to cut back, seems like I've been repeating myself on the same group of topics for too long...

Forum posting can and has been addictive!

For the afflicted wanting to curb the habit, there's nothing effective like long periods of RV'ing with limited Internet access.

Signed someone who has just concluded a 4,000-mi RV trip, and who would have gone for a few more weeks, if he did not have to return home due to an emergency.
