I believe, as Dennis, the "Chat" function is a perk. I, myself am too "one track minded" to EVER keep up with all the stuff flying around on that section of the forum. As for Boss, I'm sure he will be a great loss to the Chat section, however he does freely post his phone number and is a WEALTH of not only Cub, but tractor/farming information in general. I've had the pleasure of a phone call to him recently and he is quite the conversationalist
I hope to avail myself of his knowledge again in the future and his is one of the Cubfests I plan to attend.
BTW Dennis, I appreciate your "fee free forum", however, I would gladly provide one in order to continue this great community.
