Wow tried to read the newbie threads... Too many, and that's a good thing! Looking forward to learning the ins and outs of this site. Retired utility worker moving up closer to family, but not too close. Solar power pusher since early 80's and someone who was brought up with the scout motto "Be Prepared". You don't need to be a prepper to be prepared, but why not? Radio junkie, Appleseeder, old SAR member, general tinkerer and generally curious about most anything... Finding this site is like being thirsty and trying to suck on a fully charged 2in fire hose. Looking forward to taking in all I can! Might even put in my 2¢ worth as the spirits move me. Getting a fresh start in a new state.... I'm ready!
