What I find very interesting is the significant number of people who post here about their new-to-them SMB, and no one here noticed (or at least posted) that particular SMB was even for sale.
With all the For Sale SMB's posted here, it's amazing how many fly under the radar.
I’m glad it flew under the radar. We didn’t “steal” it, but did get a very good deal. If I had gone through high profile, I’m sure we’d have paid much more. We had been looking hard for a while, and we were prepared to immediately jump on it.

Yep. It's when people find their dream rig, and then arrange their finances, the rig gets bought by someone else. IMO, having the cash available, or the loan pre-approved (much harder), is the single most important factor.
SMB-less as of 02/04/2012. Our savings account is richer, but our adventures are poorer.
Thanks for the invite. We live in Oklahoma City, so it seems like all the events for the cool kids are a 14-17 hr drive. We always end up cruising in home at 4am, showering and heading to work an hour later. The 60 year old me doesn’t handle that as well as the 25 year old me did. In a couple more years though, the SMB will be our house, and we won’t be on any schedule!
