Hello: My name is Jim Sheckler (alias Sheck1) This shortcut for my name goes back around 1962. My wife and I for 59yrs have a Son and Daughter both married.We have 5 grandchildren and 2 Greatgrand sons.My most valued hobby is listening to BigBands and BigBand Singers.I have quite an extensive library of CD's and 33-1/3 LP records. For 40+yrs I played Drums with 18pc Big Bands locally here in Lancaster,Penna. I owwwn a 2009 ODY EX. Love it and so does my family when they need to borrow it for vacation trips.
Belangee is the name my parents gave me. We number less than 150 across America.
The family has an '08 with RES (no NAV) and mostly original stuff. The entertainment system still works flawlessly, (Although we've paid a boatload of money to XM over the last decade) We've lost the center cushion (posted a Wanted to Buy elsewhere) and need to get new headlights, but with 217K miles and counting, we'll drive it 'till it dies. We've hauled mattresses on the roof, and 10' boards in the inside. I once got an entire Amish dining room set (10' table and 6 chairs) in the vehicle.
Knock on wood, no Tranny issues thus far.
Thanks for running the boards.
'08 Ody, 217K miles, Leather, Blue & Grey, Entertainment.
Monty00610 is actually partially driven from my real name that is long and difficult to be pronounced or written "Mountasyoury" and the 00610 has been added by me in reference of the date I started to work with specialists in highly dangerous areas. 00 refers to the year 6 refers to the month and for sure 10 refers to the tenth day of the month and year when started my working activities.
Before we bought the Odyssey three years ago, I owned a silver 1998 Honda Civic hatchback with plans of converting it to a replica of the JDM Civic Type R. In the end it ended up looking more like the JDM SiR version. Hence silverctr.
I own a professional childproofing/babyproofing company in the Tampa Bay area. Just picked up a gently used 2016 EX that will be my primary work vehicle. I lay the rear seats flat and removed 2/3 of the 2nd row. The remaining seat in the rear where my director of sales & marketing sits (my 5 year old)
Not a new member but have not posted in a long time, forgot previous password and have switched internet providers so I could not reset password.
We just purchased our third Odyssey. We previously owned a 2002 LX (traded), a CPO 2009 EXL-RES (totaled) and just brought home a 2017 EXL-RES(replacement).
When we bought our first Ody our youngest daughter pronounced her v's as b's so that is where Minibandad came from.
Looking forward to reading up on our new van. Glad to be a part of the community again.
