New-bee here....
« on: July 21, 2013, 11:22:48 AM »
Hi all.
In southwest Asia on the civilian travel plan now. I've been a closet homesteader and gardener for my entire life. I've wanted to raise bees for many years but for a number of reasons, just couldn't make it happen. Still can't but I'll be home this winter to stay. I'm looking forward to learning as much as I can here and making some new contacts. I'm from Central Illinois when not away for work.
I hope this finds everyone doing great there.

Welcome to the forum Ken. Be sure to update your home state/city in the location block for when you start asking questions. Beekeeping is very local for a lot of aspects and Hopelessly Lost does not help.

Welcome  to the forum, Ken. There are lots of threads and videos here that can help.  When you get home join a local bee club also.  Good luck on your bee keeping.
