Are there really other people on this site?

I've been on this site for a month plus and made a few comments and wowed some rocks and offered local info to people considering coming my way.

We are building a rock workshop in our back yard after realizing that queuing up at the club workshop and paying per slab to cut stuff wasn't so good. We live on Vancouver Island which was an arc island complex - basalt,… Continue
