    To our newer members - Hurricane Mikey used to be the natedog of TRs.
    In a ballplayer-comparison way, Mikey's current TR versus those in his prime of few years ago show that he has mellowed. That ineveitable and indeed there comes a time when someone else like natedog steps up to the plate and replaces Mikey as the next big T2V star on the TR forum.

    It was a real pleasure to read your musings again Mikey. Thought for a while that wouldn't happen again. Welcome back.

    Great to step in the wayback machine.

    As a relative newcomer to this board, I am sad that I wasn't around to experience Hurricane's glory in its heyday.

    But what a fantastic trip report. I am literally counting the seconds until I'm supine in a cabana behind the Aria with a drink in one hand and a fistful of hundos in the other.

    Santé,
    TL

    Does he not post on here anymore? I've been a member for years (lurker mostly) and was wondering where he'd been. YAY, looking forward to reading this, thanks for posting it, gota

    He hasn't been posting here for quite some time. He peeks in now and then. :)wave: Mikey!)

    After a hiatus to deal with life, he seems to be back blogging again. I have hopes that we can tempt him back here.

    Good to see Mikey back posting again - it's through him and his dealer thread that led me here!
