Theres something that bugs me about this hobby. Its not the spiders, or some kind of attitude or anything. Its simply that, everyone seems to be so spread out. Breeders/dealers seem to have gotten together at some point and said "Alright, we'll all just move to where there are maybe two of us in the same state, and some states we wont live in at all because reasons." Im not saying they dont have the right to live or do business wherever they want, i just think its kinda funny. I guess its not really so much about distance as it is about being a rather.... borderline-underground community. I searched "Arkansas" on the boards earlier and the only posts within 3 years that even mention the word are either mine or talkingabout Aphonopelma hentzi. I love talkin to you guys on the boards, but i would also love to have someone i could connect with in person and learn from. I can learn by reading just fine, but im much more visual. And youtube isnt much better than reading sometimes. There hasnt been a convention or whatever you wanna call it within driving range for 2 years. I dunno, this is just something thats been on my mind lately. My friends are interested but not to the point I am and you guys on a screen are the only people that actually get anything i have to say and youre just a screen. Make sense? Its a solitary hobby and i wish it wasnt. There it is, thats what its about. Not distance or being "underground". Ive rambled. I apologize, but im posting it anyways. Maybe some of you will be able to relate.
