So sad. I was stunned to hear this, but I am glad to finally know the reason behind his absence.

I always assumed Mishar’s first name was Misha, but I was not on a first name basis. His sense of humor and (well deserved confidence in his) expertise in automotive engineering were most appreciated. Especially when his English translated into humorous double entendres.

His posts sometimes came off as condescending, but I don’t think he had a mean bone in his body; it was just perfectly stoic candor or else he was poking you a little. He was one smart traveler and our forum will be worse off without him.

I never knew him but have read many of his post, before and during D3 ownership. My condolences to his family and friends.

Yes, his first name was Misha, last initial was R, hence the screen name from what I figured anyway. Indeed he had a masters in mechanical engineering - automotive, from University of Belgrade. Belgrade was also part of his final years from what I gather, and to Greece and the Mediterranean more generally with his boat.

Rest in peace, Mishar.

Even though I never had any personal interaction on the forums, his threads were a major help when I was only lurking the forum.
