    Hello from Illinois

    So glad to be here after having my rights quashed for so long. I did have an out of state permit so I did get to CC at times, but now that it's full time I thought I'd hop on here and learn as much as I could.

    Welcome to the forum. Those of us in "free" states love it here. Those of you in less-free states will love it here also!
