Welcome!
With those interests, you've certainly come the right place. This is bar none, the best forum for learning how to rescue the 'treasures of the past' from the nail infested, rusted tin littered and some of the greatest sites in this part of the country.
As you begin this great hobby remember this; If it was easy or lucrative, everyone would be doing it. That being said, there is much satisfaction and a lot of enjoyment to be had from learning something new and then preserving, through the time and sweat and even tears spent in perfecting that craft. Fortunately for us, it will take a lifetime and then some to perfect - but the greater truth to be had here is that IT'S not so much the destination but the journey that allows us to enjoy, have fun, overcome challenges and learn.
I attended my first WTHO outing a couple of weeks ago and have come to better appreciate what it means to rescue or save some of these treasures from the past - from a future of remaining lost.
There is a great and diverse group of folks here who are more than willing to help and to share their own opinions and even some truth about your new found hobby, so I guess its like anywhere else - read, learn, decipher, ask lots of questions and for heavens sake, as I'm often told, "READ THE MANUAL!" and then go out and use it and have some fun.
(Thanks again Joel, for the latest reminder about the manual.)
Seriously, this is a great and rewarding hobby with a lot of great and interesting people to do it with!
Once again, WELCOME!!
