    @EricL passed away yesterday. It saddens me to post this. He will be missed, he loved his family, always bragging on his boys.

    @Eyrie our sincerest condolences! Don’t hesitate to reach out if you need anything.

    @EricL was the first person to take me out to Gulches when I moved down to South Carolina and started doing stupid shit to my truck, always a pleasure to bullshit with. He talked some made shit when you got him going and it was always a good time!

    He was a highly active member of TW. I know he dabbled in a lot of the threads and with much of the community on this site.

    Gone too soon. :pout::pray::pout:RIP @EricL

    “Don’t worry, I’ll clear your browser history!”

    Gonna miss you man!

    @tcBob can we get 10k for Eric please.

    Thank you all (and all the folks over on the SC BS&Gossip thread) for the thoughts, prayers, love, and support. TW was like a second home for Eric and a lot of you guys were probably like a little TW family for him. I know that spending time here, off roading, BSing, and doing all the TW things was something he truly enjoyed.

    I was fortunate to meet and hang out with Eric several times since I joined this site 7 years ago.

    I do know this; he loved bbq, booze, and bullshitting.

    He also had the unfortunate luck of busting taillights on the trails.

    Rest easy, my friend :pout:

    This is number three for SC this year. Eric needs to go in the next calendar. :(

    here’s my dog chewing off his mudflap many years ago.
