Hi All,
Just realized this forum existed. I can't believe my eyes. Well, I'm happy to see bretheren on Glocktalk. I frequent many forums, mostly knife related forums as that's what I do. However, I'm a gun man as well and it's always a good day to run into people on the level.

Fraternally,
R

Thanks DT, BN.... I can see you are right. In almost 20 years of knife collecting and 10 years of knifemaking, and just a few years of gun enthusiasm I have only rarely met brothers along the way.

I see more and more on line but not much socializing between them. This is a nice start atleast.

Thanks again!

Welcome - I am more active on a Masonic forum more specific to Texas, but check in here occasionally.

Just keep in mind, it is the journey that is important and not the collection of dues cards.

Absolutely! Masonry has taught me much in the last 13 years and clarified many things for me. That and it's relative and inclusive arts and sciences.

More than anything thru reading and thru ritual, opening up I feel a reather unique perspective.

Thanks!

Thanks! No I haven't been there yet. I hope to take the tour asap. I've heard tales about it's beauty and have only been outside when it was closed a few times. Even it's outer edifice is perfect!

I hail from Scotia 634 in NYC which is housed at the Grand Lodge there. Pretty amazing rooms but the outside just looks like an office building.

Still looking to affiliate with a local lodge here in PA. There are 2 close to me to choose from.

Thanks!
