Greetings to the stp community. Just another noob here starting out my journey in strange times. I have been lurking this forum and others for a while and finally decided to get involved. Next week, I will be starting my first hopping adventure. Hopefully, I will be able to make it to Vancouver and then back to Toronto (my home city) before the winter comes. I have no clue what I'm getting into, other than from what I've gathered from reading various threads. I read the hopping safety thread from here a while back and don't remember too much. Maybe if you care enough to save me some pain, give me some tips for my first time. If not, I will report back under the condition that I make it out alive. Best regards!
