I am very new to forums and chatting in general. Just figured I have a little to offer in these kinds of conversations and would like to commun with more than just millenials commenting on youtube videos with no real life experiences. I have worked in gun sales and instruction in the past. Was in the Army for a few years. I am an avid backpacker. And, for 20 years built and maintained machine control systems. My wife and I recently built a tinyhouse that we currently live in and we are practicing off griders (to an extent). I am liking the threads here so far and like the fact that there are not many conflicts in posts on this site. Thanks for welcoming me.
