(I have a lot of stuff to remember here. Please bear with me. )
First things first. We all
owe a big thanks to the folks who have dipped into their pockets and, after sorting out a few nuts, bolts and dog hairs, have tossed some cash our way to help us pay for the things we need to keep this site on-line.
I left off the "thanks" list at the end of March. You all remember March 2020.
I've rounded up tid bits from here and there to piece together the thanks list for the end of 2020. I have checked and re-checked and I think I have them all. If someone is missing, just let me know. (I'll update my master list ... one of these days.
These are from April thru December 2020 (I'll get started on 2021 asap):

As you know, there are many aspects to keeping the Stovebolt web site humming along. Keeping the server functional 24/7 is due to gargantuan efforts of Paul "The Stovebolt Geek" Schmehl, working away down there in frigid Texas on our server farm). He's our "Number One" on this IT planet.
We are also grateful to have dedicated volunteers all over the site making these things happen here and away from here (we were virtual before virtual was ... necessary
). You know these folks as moderators.
And we have our helpers (like YOU) who continuously help one another out in the forums. The strength of the site. The heart-core
Folks willing to put a little something back into this site by sharing their knowledge through virtual (and real time
.... what a great word!) hands-on assistance. Over the years, these lovers of old trucks have come face-to-face on a regular basis, extending the same generosity and helpfulness that began right here. We can't keep them apart (even in these days ... which is awesome!) The Event forums and the Side Lots helped make that happen. But we found out that these Bolters are naturally drawn to one another -- all over, field and mountain, distant shores, too! It's a natural bond that brings these old truck people together.
