Most likely as winter gets closer, or snow is in their forecest, they will drift back in. Vecchio1 (Lou) will come back too. Then again, you never know, they may still be reading, just not posting. Steveair just posted today in the Chevy Truck Forum. The same thing happens every year, as the lawn care and other business winds down, people change their focus back to snow plowing and pop up here.
I've been reading the posts when I'm home. They are very informative and some are pretty funny. Most of the time I'm out of town at shows or dealer open houses. I'll be at
Mid-MI Snow and Ice this Saturday for their new facility open house in Mason, MI (near Lansing). I will have our Sport/Utility power angle pull plow there if any one is close by and wants to come see it.
I think Chuck's right about guys getting things ready. We're supposed to get 1-3" of snow tonight which is a lot earlier than what we're used to.
