I'll give you 2 months before you get a ban stick of deorerant! Or any other number of muderator tools at their disposal.....

Yeah, should be an oder or two dumping.

In some of the sailing forums I look at, getting banned from one particular forum is a badge of honor! IRV2 would be one for rving IMHO!

I may have surpassed the 2 months, but if so, not by much! Just looked today and I have a perma tan...I mean perma ban. Been a few weeks since I checked in, though so Marty you may have won that bet hands down!
And I bet I didn't have 20 posts maybe?

Some nice feller by the name of LtDan signed off on it. Anyone have his digits so I can send him a thankyou card?

Cool thig was, no warnings, no timeouts, just straight up hammertime!

Thought y'all might want to know. You'll have to reach me at my rv.net address. I've been evicted from the other place. LOL!

Marty i dated a gal years ago that lived on Union Hill Rd in Redmond. In my mind I remember there is a very steep section or am I dreaming this?


Didn't see post from when ever.
Union, novelty, pine lake plateau ALL have some roads in the 15-20+ % relm. If you go up the hills south of I90 in Eastgate area, to somerset, hilltop, the summit, cougar and susk Mrs, again, a number of steep, reasonably short, still long and steep enough to stall a rig out if you have improper axle/trans gearing for the rig your driving.
Had a client just south of Newport beach park, had a 33% grade from home up to RR tracks than ran along east side, just before 405. That was fun getting material, ie 150 us if topsoil in the shortest tandem WB truck I could get, 12 yds at a time out of Redmond. A transfer couldn't make the 90* corner at the bottom. If the brakes let loose, thru the garage, kitchen, lake Washington was maybe 50' later! A barge might have been easier, like Kenny did at the Gates mansion. Brakes were coming and going from there. That was 20%, at least one 180 hairpin turn.......Kenny gave me a tour, quite the 3mil landscape project.

Lololol ??????

I was hoping you'd pull of a week or two at best! I didn't think you'd last long with your sarcasm!

Some have no sense of humor.

If you used same screen name, they saw you comin! Lol...with your rep, they knew a reprimand would just prolong the inevitable.

You are more appreciated here, sarcasm maybe, but with a nice touch! Just being on delay here, adds anticipation, we have to WAIT FOR IT!

I disagree with you sometimes, but only when you are wrong, and I am right! Lol

Michelle S you are correct not sure why OP is asking probably already knew the answer. Sometimes wonder why they ask, guess forums are good for info, opinions, even learn something new not relating to the question.

I’m going to say he didn’t. It looks like SmokeyWren hasn’t posted on that forum since September ‘21. May not even be among the living any more…

I never dealt with him on the IRV2 forum but he used to be pretty helpful on one of the old Ford truck forums back in the day. It was a diesel site and he left when he switched to a F-150 EcoBoost IIRC.

Guess I rubbed him wrong by asking him why my SAE RAWR could be 9,750# and unloaded front axle 5,250# and not exceed the 14k GVWR. He was a die hard "do not exceed your GVWR" type of guy but would not address the above when presented with FACTS.

Ron,

I'm not he and I would get along either. I'd tell he was full of BS. He obviously does not know the legal limits, vs warranty wieght limits or smart wieght limits per say.
