Howdy Ya All! Season Greetings!

Ranger Rick" here from The Ranger Digest.Com (www.therangerdigest.com). I received a coupla e-mails from some of your forum members inviting me to come join your club and to do some chatting. Well I finally registered on and so here I am.

But....because I'm retired and live here in Italy, you know that "boot shape" place across the big pond, don't expect to see me here everyday because there's a big time difference between there and here, ya know? And so I'll try my best to log on during the same time when you all are online.

And while I'm here I'd like to invite ya all to come by my site. No, I don't have a forum, but I do have a lotta great military/outdoor/survival tips, tricks & ideas that I'm certain you say to yourselves "Now why didn't I think of that?" Which I'll soon be posting some more sometime this month or next month and so you're all welcomed to com'on by.

Well thanks to the fellas who invited me to come on board, looks like some interesting stuff that you got here.

And so I'll end this message by saying I'll be back from time to time and so until next time, take care and have a Merry Christmas everyone, God bless.

Ranger Rick! Hey, great to see ya here. Was a big fan of your Ranger Digest series when I was in the Army. The .50 cal link/chemlight holder trick for SINCGARS antennas damn near got me promoted when my CO saw me using it. Glad you're here. P.S. Were open 24/7 so you can sign on whenever you want.

I'm sure PaoloAR15 will be more than happy to show you around that boot-shaped place. He's a good paisan!

Rick - Nice to hear from you again. The last I saw a post from you is when you spammed and managed to piss off the whole of SOCNET [BD]. You will definitely find a more open-armed crowd here - we even have a survival forum that is right up your alley.

Hi Rick. Welcome to the forum.

Howdy Ranger Rick, Also have your books, pretty good stuff! Don't worry about the time difference, I don't think we ever sleep ;)

Glad to see you here, Ranger Rick. I've been reading & learning from your series of books since '92. You'll probably be able to pick up some more tips & info for your books if you stay around here long enough...
