What happened to Vatrader?

Hey guys, just noticing that Vatrader hasn't posted in a while. It might have been mentioned before and maybe I missed it, but where did he go?

Unable to contact vatrader01 by PM, E-mail, or telephone (he leaves his cell phone OFF, with no voicemail mailbox setup) for over two months, I've wondered the same thing.

Hope everything's o.k.; if anyone has contact with vatrader01, please wish him, "Happy New Year" from me!

Hmmmm...a lot of people post less in winter?

Could be just that... Just seemed weird to me because he was usually on whenever I logged on, now nada. Hoping your right, maybe he's just taking a net break

P.S. I hate winter!

I found myself wondering the same thing the other day.

While I have no explanation of vatrader01's absence, I think he's been away too long (2 months +) for a simple climatological explanation; and--in his neck-of-the-woods, riding remains plausible even now, weather-wise.

Godspeed to vatrader01, wherever he may be.

I am about an hour from his location, and it is still very ride-able here. Maybe work has him very busy?? Haven't heard him on the other KLR related forum either.

Shit, I hope he's OK. We should come up with some kind of emergency contact list. I know that may sound stupid, but I will spend the rest of my life wondering what happened to BIGIRON, although I am afraid I know. Anyway, if I'm not on here for a while, contact Jim and Sandy Mader in Carlisle, PA. They're easy to find.

I hope he's ok as well, just seems kind of weird for him to not be on for so long, specially being a mod and all. I like his no nonsense tech posts, hope he shows up again soon!

P.S. Did anybody ever figure out what happened to Bigiron?

Nope. Paper and I tried to track him down for a long time.
