You people are coming out of the woodwork (woodgrain plastic) today! Welcome. Let us know what part of the country you are in, and you can probably hook up with the VMF locals and/or your local MCA chapter.
I too will join in with a hearty WELCOME to the VMF. :: You have plenty of questions, well then we have plenty of answers. You did good filling out your bio, you just left out what planet your living on. You would be surprised at the shipping cost for Mars even though it is going to be closer than it has in 60,000 years in a week or so. :: fd
