  • Howdy from way-up north

    I've read all your intro's so I know a tiny bit about you all and I want to make a few statements as way of introduction:
    First: Thanks for letting me in this site; it was not easy to get in and I understand why.
    Second: I feel right at home here and hope to make a contribution.
    Third: I feel comfortable with a smaller group, I am overwhelmed by bigger sites and so I hope I fit in well here.
    Fourth: I have alot in common with everyone here as I grew-up in the suburbs, lusting after the outdoor life and adventure, then went into the service (army) and moved into a rural/ranching lifestyle. I never got to read Teddy Roosevelt's books as a kid, but you would think I had!
    Fifth: I have spent the rest of my life persuing a rancher's life in the mountains of the Northern country and it aint easy. You do not do this work for money, cause there aint none! Being a rancher/farmer means you have to master alot of skills, I'm lucky I mastered tracking and hunting before I got into ranching/farming because those occupations leave little time or energy for hunting activities! I am not a sociable guy and don't expect others to help me; as such I am self taught through book learning and practicle experience. None of my buildings have collapased (yet). My irrigation and septic work (same thing, just different smell) has worked fine simply because I read books and learned from them!
    Lastly: I'm really glad to be here and happy that this site offers a home for all us, we need one. Thanks to the PPL that made this site happen!

    Welcome Kenno,

    I've read your skills set and look forward to learning from your rich life experiences. Looks like mechanically we have a lot in common, ranching and farming not so much, but it's something I need to learn (along with a million billion other things).
    ENJOY AND STAY SAFE

        welcome to the site can't wait to see you share your experience and knowledge, and as always pics of gear, things you have built etc always help, as they say a pic is worth a thousand words ;) (not sure who they is) but it's true haha

        The best thing you can do to support the site is pass it on to your friends and fav sites like other forums, facebook, twitter etc. Let people know about us! :)

          Welcome to the Forum, Kenno. It sounds like you live a good productive life, even if it isn't always monetarily rewarding. We look forward to your insights.
