     I'm new to the forum and somewhat new to smoking. I live north of Tucson and work as a Deputy Sheriff in this area. In my spare time I enjoy hunting, jeeping, and really anything that involves being outdoors. I also enjoy spending time with family and at the present time I'm not married and have no children....that I know of...[​IMG]

     I joined the forum to get more experience with smoking and to draw from the experiences of fellow members.

    Welcome to the forums Sancho1 from a former Law Dawg. My brother and sis-in-law were down in the Tucson area last week visiting family-guess it is a small world.

    Yes, this place is addicting and no-there is no known cure.

    Welcome Sancho,

    You'll love it here. Everyone helps each other and everyone has a good sense of humor.

    Which reminds me, I only had a little Spanish in 8th grade, but is ThunderDome really in "The Big House"?
