Why is Indiana so dead?

My cog group, and this GL group are just dead in Indiana. Why? Do we not have a lot of members? It's like getting people to simple events is next to impossible.

It is hard to say.
Maybe some of the Indiana guys are PMing each other to have a closed little "private" group.

The Illinois section is no better.

It's possible! They're all out to get me ya know.

It's funny because I'm an introvert. I hate people. But fact is, I want to get some more riding friends. The few I ride with now are less than reliable.

I can relate as I lean to this way of thinking about people more often than not.
I'm never lonely as long as I have me. hahahaha

It might be as simple as most of them are down in Florida now and too busy riding. Also if they don't own laptops, probably not many haul their computers south with them.

Look at it this way. If all the people active in the Maryland forum up and moved to Indiana right now, it would still be dead.

This is my signature block. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

My signature block is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life....
