    I'm friggin addicted to this site. I guess it's from being totally deprived of any real off-roading for awhile and getting some photo fixes, and the stress of buying a house (whenever my stress level goes above normal, I shift most of my focus on trucks). I notice I start reading classifieds for parts trucks or a second truck, starting 20 projects on the K5 at once, keeping the CK5 message board open in the background of my computer all friggin day (instead of the usual couple hours, lol)...

    Anyway, just satiating my appetite and diverting my attention for another minute, thought I'd see if anyone else finds themselves doing the same...

    its a lot better than many other things we COULD be doing. spending the rent money on gears isnt ok, but it could be worse.
    keep coming back!

    You know when you first joined the site, and everyone told you that it was addictive? I dont know if you believed it, but I didnt really take it seriously. Now I find myself here evey chance I get!! In the morning, at lunch, after work, any time I can sneek onto the computer!! You know what, I think I am finally taking the first step, I am admitting that I have a problem!!! I cant stay away!! I am addicted to to my Blazer and this site is feeding the addiction!!!! And its always a good place to get a laugh or two...

    You all are right - I just found this site maybe 2 weeks ago, and I'm on it constanly. I've been trying to find a way to make the screen look more like what I'm supposed to be doing all day.

    Just like to say it's the same all over the world. I have been here every day since aug 99. Because of this site other Norwegians think I'm dumb when I try to explain my Blazer to them. I know only english words for the diffrent parts, not what it's called in Norwegian... [​IMG]

    I cant get enough of the comeradery(sp) and willingness to always help out a fellow Blazer owner.

    Its just great!

    The first part of knowing your addicted to something (CK5) is admitting that you have an addiction....I am addicted!! Welcome BTW!

    I would have to agree I am VERY addicted to this site. I've always loved K5 Blazers, and when I found this site it was almost like sex! (almost)
