Default Greetings to all from NE Oregon

I'm a retired software engineer living in the NE corner of Oregon in a log house (a life long dream fulfilled) at the base of the Wallowa mountains in a small town of about 1000 souls. I've really enjoyed pursing (I think most people call it 'lurking' around) the forum for the last two weeks or so, but decided I had to jump in. Although I am an avid fisherman (particularly fly-fishing) and love to shoot, I'm also interested in cooking, gardening, and learning to can and preserve what I grow. I live on the out wash of a mountain creek and have no soil to speak of, but lots and lots of rocks! I put in 8 raised beds for the garden and since deer and other critters are a problem (really a joy) I enclosed the garden in a 20x60 foot fence. I'm looking forward to sharing what I can with you fine people. BTW: I'm also been an amateur astronomer since I was 12. I have 4 telescopes, so if anyone wants to share the wonders of the universe, just let me know.

Greeting from the other coast. I live in Maine. Dive right in , because I have learned a lot. I have been interested in the universe most of my life. I do have a telescope, but haven't spent much time with it.
