Hey Ray, welcome to Puff man!!! Jump in, the water's warm.
Head on over to the "New Puffer Forum" and introduce yourself. That's the best place to start.
I'm from the west side of A2 and don't get your way much, but there are a few here from your neck of the woods that would probably be glad to hook up with you. get involved in the NOOBPIF and things like that, I'm sure you'll enjoy the banter and smack talk and welcome aboard. Hope your bank account is up to the task.
