The H.A.M.B. is easy to take for granted. Often times, I will find myself following a thread for years or even decades without so much as considering the relationship between my mind, time, and the thread itself. Here’s an example of that:
Back in 2014, Denns1989 posted about his model-a survivor called, “Snoopy.” He had recently found the old hot rod in a garage, had some very noble preservation plans, and I signed up for notifications immediately. Through the years, I’ve casually followed along as Denns1989 made good on those plans – he’s kept the old car up, driven it a ton, and has just generally done a great job keeping us all informed on what it’s like to own and use such a neat old car.
Anyway, I was on a road trip this weekend and I ran out of podcasts before I ran out of I35. As such, my mind began to wonder and eventually landed on Snoopy. It had been awhile since I peeped the thread and I wondered what he had been up to as of late. This morning I got my chance to have a look-see.
Three hours later and I’m now caught up on Snoop… And as I sit here, I still can’t get over the fact that I have been following this car and its owner since 2014. I don’t know Denns1989… I’ve never seen Snoopy in person. And yet, I’d bet you an oil change I could hop in that car right now and drive it as if I have been doing it for years. I know that car… personally…
The internet is such wonderful thing. It’s horrific too… But it can be so amazing at the same time.
