    So ive been gone from the hobby and these forums for a while, but im making a comeback.

    This new site configuration, and all these new names confuse me a bit and im trying to post a WTB add in the classifieds, but am having trouble.

    Id like to apologize in advance to the Mods, because i know this is not the place for this, but im in the market for some new ts.

    Id like to hear from the local hobbiests (WA state, near Puyallup area) but am open to shipping as well.

    Im mostly into OW arboreals, but wouldnt mind a nicer NW as well (for my stepson)

    Thanks. The active member part explains it. Ive been gonefrom these forums for around 4 yrs.
    As far as the petshops go, i already know there is zero selection in WA haha. Ive been to them all.
    Ive actually sold Simon a few ts a long time ago, i just forgot about locals. Ill check into him

    Im really looking for a subadult/adult female lampropelma, maybe a c schioedtei, p ornata, or p bara

    Theres a few that interest me and i cant stop thinking about all the cool ts ive had. Im afraid to even start thr hobby again because i know one tarantula turns into 100

    Man, four years is a long time. We have some colorful new members. Like me, for example. I shall enthrall you with stories of Peanut the legendary Theraphosidae.

    If you want a nice NW arboreal, i know @cold blood will recommend the P. cambrigei.

    What do you think of the Goddess 0.1 Pelinobius muticus PBUH (Peace Be Upon Her) man? :)

    Are you coming in the name of Ahura Mazdā (Goddess lover) or... Angra Mainyu (Goddess hater) :shifty:?
