Last I spoke to him, sounded like he was doing good. He had a girl he was dating and real busy with work and other things in his life.

If it was the girl (teacher) in Chicargo that was over ages ago. He's doing a lot with his local church and has been helping a friend refurbish a house just round the corner from me. emailed him a few days ago, no reply yet.

I am the original owner of my D-90 - but I sold it to one of my best friends for 4 years. I had no idea that this page existed then.

When I bought the same truck back from my friend 2 years ago, he told me about it. I have been hooked ever since.

Wish I knew about you before - you guys could have talked me out of selling! But all is well........I have the D-90 back to stay!

So there are 6k +/- NAS Defenders in the country, Right? About 3k SW and 3k ST? How many of those members are on this board? And idea?

I guess I could try and pull those numbers from the members profiles somehow but I would have to see how to best get accurate results since people are not consistent with how they enter the info kind of like the locations.

Since I took over, the site has gone from a forum with 20 registered users to now over 3000. I would say that 1/2 of those are/were Defender owners. Doesn't seem like a huge number compare to other forums, but unlike other forums, I actively delete about 25 - 50 accounts a week that are bogus/spamming accounts so the growth in the membership is lower. Also, unlike other forums, I dont require people to register for an account if they just want to surf the forum and look at attachments.

I was researching to buy my D90 in '03(?) and found this through a web search. A great place to exchange info and to make some pretty good friends. I've given several D90 drivers a bumper sticker and telling them how great the site is and how good the community is. Most find it hard to believe there is actually an online group of guys who are constructive and supportive. DiscoWeb is much more the norm for the internet, whereas D90 guys are pretty good at self-discipline. CVC does an awesome job with the site, too.

I've been out of touch with Mike. What happened to his truck...this time?
