Well I'm kinda new at this myself and had some learning difficulties myself . As of right now until I get a better idea is ,anytime we are on another part of F T E and we see an Idaho address maybe should ask them if they have visited the Idaho chapter . Then if they do ,then we should at least say hello , to let them know we see them . The feeling I had when I joined was I felt like an invisibly stranger . What little time I was visiting the Idaho chapter it was a good , no problems . My main intrest as of now is the 51 pickup as I am building one . I was unable to find that interest here . I do follow the big bronco stuff as I have a 79 .The 87 F-350 I follow as I still have my old crew cab duelly from my construction days that I don't have to do anymore , I can't work on it but at least somebody may be having a problem I might be having and I might learn something .

This is a great start guys.

Add your FIRST names to you signature, it makes it easier for people to remember who you are, and is most important when you all get to meet face to face.

FYI, I sent a mass pm to, I think it was 1,518 ID residents. Hopefully it will get some new members posting with the chapter.

Tell ya what - when I went up to Boise last weekend I didn't think we'd be driving home in a snowstorm! It was kinda neat, but isn't it a little early for that sort of thing?

Yes it is but it happens sometimes , better than no snow in the valley and very little in the mountains , that happens some years to . It's in the mid 30s today , which is below normal this time of year .about two to three weeks ago it was high 80s here in parma. Skipped fall for us but may warm up in the next few days . I'm not in to playing in the snow but the resorts say an early snow that melts and goes in the ground , then freezes , makes a good base for there runs to pack down for the ones that like to play in it . I'v had to work in it to much to want to play in it , not my thing . I'd rather be working on my 51 ford pickup . JIM
