    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!

    Actually moved from the southeast portion of the State of Jefferson to the western portion out of Kalifornia's reach. A great deal of satisfaction comes from taking my money and running. Looking forward to getting to know you all over the coming years!

    Welcome Sourdough, from a mild inoffensive minnow in a school of 1 here. It seems from your background that you might have much of your own experience to share here. (y)

    Will look for places to chime in!
    Some of the ways I do things have been best described as "different"....
    Once in college the class was admonished to " think outside the box"....
    After which the instructor turned to me and said "except you. I'm not sure you recognize box thinking". I believe in giving out the best of your knowledge and not worry about getting something for it..... Karma is real!

    A box is a place to put scared people when they cannot figure out the answers to very hard questions! We here in the Monkey tree hate boxes, unless they contain Potatoes, then we love boxes!!!

    Welcome to the Monkey and to the State of Jefferson (so much more likely with the budding move in Calif to secede). Whereabouts on the SO coast are you moving? I spend a lot of time in the Summer around Brookings.

    SO Coos Bay... Want to be able to fish and crab on spur of the moment.
    Haven't gotten internet yet so will disappear on occasion....
    Headed there but only for a few days before heading to Portland for a visit there.
