Just got the email and figured I'd log in and post something. I never found a Trekker that would work for me so I bought an '85 4Runner and wheeled it for a few years and had a blast. At the time I was living in Nor Cal near Rubicon/Fordyce. Moved to So Cal and sold the 4Runner to build a buggy. It's beaches and desert for me now, but I sure do love the Trekkers. It would be a shame to lose this board, especially given all of the history and information it contains.
By the way, that Burgundy truck is AMAZING Mr. Slacker; very nice.
I got the email today too. Personally I'm dying as well, financially that is and theres no room for projects as much as I'd like to take on a Trekker. I hope this board survives with the understanding of the position our country is in at the moment and how rare these vehicles are. This all adds up to low usage of a board like this.
