hey all. I used to live in Issaquah but met a woman and was transplanted to Maine as a result. (They have no idea what a mountain is here). Miss the NW so friggin' much. People here just don't understand how great the fishing, hunting, outdoors scene is when I tell them. Maine is a great state, but the bugs here suck. All I remember worrying about is WA was some mosquitos and the occasional horse fly. Not here, too many blood-sucking flies and ticks... Anyway. I love firearms and the NW and figured this is the best place to keep some sort of roots to the area I was born and raised in. Love the site so far. Ask any questions you'd like about Maine, (yes, we have $5-$9 lobsters). See ya in the forums.
