Think I found Trails e-mail address

I broke out an old laptop and checked the e-mail function and saw an e-mail address I can only remember shooting an e-mail to on one occasion and think it is Trail's.

I sent out an inquiry as to his status a couple hours ago and so far no response, but it at least didn't come back as an "error or no longer valid e-mail account".

If I hear anything, one way or the other, I'll post what I find to the group. Hoping for the best for the guy, but who knows how these things go.

highly suspect all round

I don't know "jack" about Twitter, Facebook or any other social media outlet. Posting to newsgroups and sending e-mails is about as computer savvy as I get.

What's been happening with Trail? I remember the dude always had some kind of issues. I hope he's okay, but can anyone give me the rundown?

Nothing to say other than I put out a post a few weeks ago in the Lounge asking if anyone had seen or heard from him. I found it odd when I did a little checking and saw his last post was a week or so prior to my inquiry because the guy was on here daily and usually posted more than a couple posts a day.

For a poster that regular in the group to just vanish and not be heard from is as odd as it can be concerning. Pretty sure he was living alone and like already mentioned, he did have some health issues.

If anything did go wrong I can only hope someone close to him has at least his e-mail account open to see if there's any incoming stuff and would be kind enough to respond.

That's all I've got at this time.


ETA: Just checked his profile and he was "Last Seen" on May 25, 2021 on this site-----------So, almost 2 months absent.

It was also noted by @Joe E and myself that Phantom's last activity was when he posted on your thread about the death of Johnny Crawford (a thread @Joe E and myself both also contributed to) at age 75 on May 3rd, and Phantom's issues with heart disease were well known to you. (Incidentally, you and Phantom both joined CHB on May 17, 2013.)

Phantom was among the very first ESB posters to send me a PM after I joined and began posting there in April 2007. In over 14 years at ESB and CHB, this is easily his longest absence without any activity. You and Phantom are the same age.

Trail's somebody I'm also very concerned about. It's just that Phantom's been missing even longer, and his last post was a reply to me on your Crawford obituary thread about Chuck Connors being the first to ever shatter a basketball backboard. (He mentioned having watched every episode of The Rifleman, and he famously had the hots for the late Tanya Roberts, so the last movie I sent him in a PM was 1979's Tourist Trap, the one time they starred together in a bizarre supernatural slasher flick which has become a cult classic, and one of Stephen King's favorite films).

For posters as accomplished as Trail and Phantom to not even log in for months is incredibly worrying.

I agree, hence my inquiry about Trail. All there is to do now is wait and see if any responses come back to me via e-mail, and if one does, I'll let the group know what I find out.

He wouldn't use an alt. He's said some pretty outrageous stuff over the years and never hidden behind alts, and a bunch of us have met him.

He was on my Facebook friends list, but I haven't used FB for years so just checked it and he's not on there any more. I hope all is well @Trail.

Man, you guys are worrying me. I'd hate for anything bad to have happened here. I missed a lot of his "controversial" posts, but he's a great poster.

Looks like he updated his cover photo on Facebook on June 10th.

Don't know what his twitter handle is to check

What’s the lowdown on this trail fella in new to this place and seen his name mentioned a few times.
Longtime and frequent poster and I think a solid guy who doesn't get into the trash talking like some do. Level headed guy for the most part---------except for his maniacal devotion to "The Ramones"------------if that don't get him out of hiding, I'll really begin to worry about his well-being.:think1
