Where's Kirk?


Recommended Posts

It's been a bit since Kirk has stopped by.  Does anyone know why?  Hopefully, it's because his keyboard wore out or some other easily fixed issue.

The thought occurs to me that he may be pulling back some since he is technically no longer an RVer having sold both RV and truck now. I, for one, don't think that should matter but I certainly can't speak for him.

Where have I been?  I've never heard of that one.

It's the oldest RV Forum on the net, started by Radio Shack TRS-80 guru Ed Juge.  When Ed retired from Tandy in 1993, he bought a motorhome and was unable to find any online groups dedicated to RVing.  So he created the RV Forum on the Compuserve Information Service, which used a text based format and lots of local access phone numbers that integrated well with the acoustic couplers and 300 baud modems travelers were using at that time.   It migrated onto the open net several years later when Compuserve went from being text based to a graphic format with lots of embedded advertising.  Users with hard wired connections had the luxury of up to 56Kbps service but travelers were still often limited to 300 or 1200 baud, which was too slow to support the new format.

Ed fell ill in the late 1990s and he passed the Forum on to Tom Jones, who continued running it until he passed the baton to RV Life last year.  Tom is still an active administrator on the Forum.

Wow! What a blast from the past that description is. And to think, that was only 30 years ago. My, Dave and I are old, huh?

I'm around but there really hasn't been much lately that was of interest. It is easier to be a moderator if you don't participate.

That sounds like a paraphrase of Confucius.😁
