  1. Guest - Welcome to the new Motoring Alliance Site! Steve, MCS02 and I were up until the early hours this morning working to get it done... as you can see it took us a bit longer than expected to get Phase 1 up and running. We are not 100% there.. its a journey. For site updates, "How Do I" and feedback please use the Announcements, How Do I, Feedback Forum (Links below). Like building a car.... its never done... and thanks for your patience

    Hey M/A, I am back online! Yeah, it's been a while! Almost a year already, I can't believe it myself!

    Well, here's the rundown...
    On February 22nd I moved into my new home in Robbinsville NC, 22 miles from the Killboy store at the end of the Dragon. I know I said I would keep in touch, but with no phone or internet service that proved to be impossible! Until now!
    Yeah, I finally broke down and had satellite internet put into my little off grid cabin in the woods... Turns out that if you live with a 4 year old who spends time with his other biological parent on the weekends, living without YouTube and Netflix is a pain in the (insert my name here)!

    A lot has changed in life since my last post here... Some of you follow my recent antics on FB, but if anyone has any questions hit me with them.

    Glad to be back, and not greeted with an "Account Closed" message.

    Awesome Jeff!

    I never did get to send you my actual mailing address, and from the looks of recent posts, there's not much activity here, so...

    If you need it, it's a mouthful but:

    What’s up dude, we are still here. You have been posting a lot of cool photos on FB and you should post some of them here.

    Our Philly group will see you in the Spring for MOTD.

    Welcome back to 2017 since you finally have internet access.

    Welcome back! Regarding the activity, I think that will pick up post site migration.. needless to say we have been having some "technical difficulties" Check out site announcements to see some of the first views... I'm actually working on the "other" site now.. :cornut:

    Sorry Grizld, you won't be seeing any of those until I can actually have the shop built. However, I did start another thread about life here at the Dragon, and there will be a few scenic shots put up in there.
