Re: Is the NWC dead?

I stop by to check in too. I haven't done much to my rig this summer due to other projects. Been looking at long arms though.

Re: Is the NWC dead?

Still lots of people around, just not much going on.

I know I haven't been real active since I messed up my knee almost 2 years ago, I just had another surgery on it on Friday that the surgeon thinks will finally fix it.

Hopefully soon I will be able to get out and do things again.

Forums in general are dead. Facebook has taken over

Re: Is the NWC dead?

Facebook hasn't taken over but they do capture a wide audience. I for one will not go the way of facebook because I cannot agree to their privacy policy, or in reality, lack of a privacy policy.



I think in general there are too many media platforms spreading everyone out. Reddit, and instagram are grabbing the attention of a few too. There are other forums booming with activity. Jumped on the F150 forum and was surprised with the activity over there.



I would hate to see wither away but it's looking like it. I try to support it as much as possible. So much good info archived here. I think the younger generation in general are less interested in automobiles let alone offroading.

Re: Is the NWC dead?

Eh...I think it comes and goes in waves. Things are in a slump on this forum but I'll bet it picks up. I haven't been around as much since I got t-boned and my XJ is totalled. I've been documenting my MJ build over on the comanche club forums, but still lurk here on occasion (in between new baby and other life things that just make it too busy to get on a computer outside of work). This place is still the best place to find technical information on the XJ

Re: Is the NWC dead?

I personally don't do facebook because discussions turn into arguments and wars of escalation often over the stupidest stuff. I don't do pirate for the same reason; if I want to be flamed, I'll try pirate first, then facebook. I'm also not a fan of the lack of investment many facebook communities have in documentation like does.

Either way, I suppose my lack of participation has largely been driven by not owning a running Jeep for the last 3 years, and a lack of Seattle area activities. Now that my TDI swap is running, I'm almost ready to rejoin the herd. Lets revive this.

Re: Is the NWC dead?

BOD elections are right around the corner, something to consider if someone wants to grab the reins and see what this chapters got left in it.

I'd love to take a more active role. I'm gonna be really lame and say I don't think I have the experience on the trails around here to even fathom leadership in this chapter and I've met maybe one other person in this chapter to boot. Has anyone thrown their hat into the ring? I mean, there's a ton of XJs out there still and I'm sure if the forum was a little more vibrant, we might have more new participation, myself included.

Re: Is the NWC dead?

Experience on local trails hardly matters.

People skills and desire play a much more substantial role.

Having initiated this thread answers the "desire" question in my mind.

Do you play well with others?

Is the NWC dead?

I hope not! I let my membership lapse but I will renew it shortly (might wait till March). I have been busy with other projects this year and haven't really done much except keeping the Jeep running but I do check in here fairly often still

Re: Is the NWC dead?

Years ago I started a new career and got divorced. Traded off my jeep for a mustang. Apparently I haven't logged in since 2011 right when life changed up. But, 2 weeks ago I bought a jeep from my late friends mom. He use to be a member here. His naxja name was thethinginthewoods.

Re: Is the NWC dead?

I got the other bugs. work, wedding, house, dogs but the jeep lives. It seems to come in waves for me, and I think the pile of parts in my basement will need to get installed this fall and winter a long with a lot of overdue fixing. But ya instagram seems to have sucked a lot of the jeep attention span.
