    So verm is runner?

    It's funny that running isn't fun, but it is meditative, and strangly refreshing.

    Kinda like riding a motorcycle, but not really.

    What a shame, Vermin's last post was on 10/25/10. Not sure if he's returning. I really, truly, enjoyed his musings.

    Well, such is life I suppose. Maybe I'll bump into Vermin or Jane out there someplace else...guess that means I need to stop typing and need to start gettin.

    I dunno.....maybe trying to kick over my roadoiler in 25 degree weather with
    a 10 degree windchill factor while straight 60 weight oil remains unmoved
    & stubbornly congealed in that 1946 tank, has made me a little lightheaded
    or sumpin'? :dunno ........but I could almost swear that El Vermino
    left us with some kind of message to be unraveled from those GPS
    coordinates that he laid down in that final post of his??

    I'm too old to 'foller clues. All them young'uns got their tit in a wringer
    and drove two fine storytellers away.

    Dang I love a good storyteller. If anyone can decipher where they went
    I would appreciate the forwarded address.

    Loved Vermin's written words. Best I've read. Wonder if a google search of Vermin would result in any decent hits? besides gophers and other rodents?

    Gator could certainly bend a phrase.

    I was once on the recieving end of a "Why are you mucking up my thread" from him. I'd thought I was mearly joining in.

    He suggested I delete my post in his thread, and start my own.
    I didn't care that much so I did.

    Got a couple e-mails saying they thought he was rude to do that, again I appreciated the support but was not hurt in any meaninful way.

    But I do miss Vermin's posts.

    There are about a dozen posters on ADV that I like to read everything they post.

    CETME, Colebatch, Fish Fund, Nate the Postman.......

    But Vermin, has been my favorite.

    Maybe I'm simply not clever enough to figure it out from the "clues" left behind, I've tried "googling" Vermin, and his real name, but have had no success.

    If he is posting elsewhere, why don't one of you clever fellas who knows where share it with those of us who really enjoyed his tales and rants?

    We finally got around to buying that book which Vermin recommended-

    http://www.heartattackproof.com/

    and I have to admit, reading it scared the crap out of us. There is a drastic dietary overhaul currently being undertaken in this household! :eek1
