Where is DiscoMike?

I have not been to this forum for quite a while.


Mike - where are you? Do not see much response from you lately.

I spoke with Mike yesterday after I noticed a new post over on LRF. He needed to take a break from the boards for awhile. Maybe we'll see him posting here in the near future.

About five years have passed. Anyone talked to DiscoMike lately?

Wonder how and what he is doing.

Miss his advice.

Not I. I've called a couple times and left messages but it has been a couple years now since I talked to him last.

TOTALLY miss his words of wisdom - or simple bluntness. heh

I spoke with him briefly last year. He is retired form the forums and his daughter took away his D2. He sounded very tired and had a nurse taking care of him. I said we miss him and think of him and wished him well.

Yes, good guy. He would probably like to know that we still think about him.

We should send him something... I'd be down for something via Paypal or what have you. Maybe a Di-Cast Rover or something? Anything to just say we are thinking about him and miss him, but understand?

I'd be down to that because lord knows, I wouldn't be the enthusiast I am on my Rover if it wasn't for him. Guess you could consider it that he cursed me but I'm good.

That sounds like a great idea.
I would also be interested in doing something to thank him for sharing his years of experience and being a big part of the Landrover community.
Anyone know how to find him?
