Hello all!

Long time lurker, I figured it was finally time to introduce myself.

My family and I recently moved onto a (bare) 11-ish acre plot just outside the teeming metropolis of Masterton. This is my first time owning land (and first time owning a house), so the learning curve is exceedingly steep but I've enjoyed the journey thus far.

I've learned so much already from you lot already, and here's to learning lots more!

Just keep asking questions on specific things as they come up. Most of us started out that way :D

Hey, thanks for making me feel welcome everyone. I feel like a member of the family already :D

Aria, the first few weeks in our new house I was convinced it was going to blow away. Literally, as in Alice in Wonderland. My wife's a local gal, and she keeps saying "oh, that's nothing" - I can't wait to see how severe the winds can get around here!

Eelcat, I had a look at your website and may come pay a visit in a couple of months!

Tigger, thanks. The learning curve is steep but I'll get there!
