I just wanted to make a first post and introduce myself. Over the years I've muddled along, trying out various equipment and gear combos. It hasn't always been successful, but I've learned a lot and had fun experimenting. Sometimes I wish I'd found forums like these 20 years ago; other times I think that would have sent me to the poor house. Some of the set-ups I've seen here are incredible....
Anyway, I've finally settled into a permanent home in Maine and am sorting through the equipment I've gathered over the years. It seems I have most of what I have for my needs but probably need a few key pieces (and a good organizational plan) and may need to swap some stuff out. I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions as I work through it.
