Hello All,

I have been reading LPF for quite a while now and am happy to be joining in finally.

I live on Vancouver Island, on the west coast of Canada and love being outdoors. I started getting into lasers because I saw a few people talking about using them for distress signalling. I thought a laser would make a good little gadget for my emergency kit as I spend a fair bit of time on the ocean (safety first). Little did I know that buying lasers is a little addicting. I now have two fairly low end lasers but am looking into getting something with a bit more power. I do have safety goggles and a background in science so I understand procedure for safety with dangerous items.

Looking forward to joining the community.

Cheers,

T

Hi there and hello from Newfoundland. You are now entering the most addictive hobby you have ever dealt with! LOL I also started off with cheap lasers, then bought one from Sci-Fi Lasers. After that I was hooked and started building my own. You are correct, safety first, always have them goggles handy. Read everything you can find on here, most importantly, read the stickies . You will find most users on here are more than willing to help a noob if the noob is smart enough to do the required reading! LOL The search bar , google custom search on the bottom of the page is your beat friend. Have fun and enjoy.

You live in a truly beautiful part of the world. I've spent a little time in BC each summer over the last few years and it is amazing.

Have fun around here and be open to learning. Use the search tool and you'll find a ton of info. Above all, be safe... cheers!
