Thank you SMB Forum!

I'm feeling a deep sense of gratitude for this forum and its members. I love my van but I'd be very much in over my head if I didn't have this active community to step in and support. What's happening here is really magical and just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone for their contributions.

Absolutely. Aside from the endless knowledge, it's the sincerity & spirit of contributions eagerly offered in the course of resolving the challenges of others (and without judgement) that makes this such a great platform.

This, and somehow it's managed to be a troll free environment for many, many years. This is almost unheard of.

Kind of makes me want to be an ass just to mix things up. OK, I won't.

Happy Sunday everyone!

A thousand "thank you's" to all those that have added their input to my questions from an owner who is "unfamiliar" with most SMB issues and NOT a mechanic !! Terrific forum for sure !

Ya know since first buying a "newer" Ford E-Series for any purpose I've only once slept inside, was by strict necessity at that. Nothing but a pillow and sleeping bag on the bare floor. Originally I joined to gain ideas for a how-to build I would be beginning for a work only vehicle. Along the way I noticed the civility, courtesy and rather huge willingness to help anyone pretty much with a generosity rarely seen on forums in general and most especially one dedicated to vehicular interests or sharing information.

Fast forwarding a few years (10+ ??) it remains pretty much as my first experience and as much as possible there's a real camaraderie here---even more so unusual today than all those years ago, forum-wise that is. It's entertaining to read about events and experiences of others, enjoy the tales and images of SMB exploits. I've never again had to sleep outdoors in a vehicle but just enjoying other's fun experiences makes attendance here so very worthwhile!!

It's also been personally gratifying being able to offer help to those I can. I'd like to think I've earned my keep!

Best wishes to all and here's hoping for nothing but safe, happy and trouble miles to come in the future!!

Agree with all the comments. People make a forum. Thanks to all and the forum hosts, mods and owners. Been great to meet and spend time with a number of you all as well.
