New member, first post, and a new-to-us SMB

Hi,

My name is Todd and my wife and I just got a new-to-us 2008 Ford EB with a Quigley 4x4 system. We are traveling photographers and are looking forward to using the van to go out and get those "golden hour" shots in remote locations!

I've been doing a lot of lurking and reading here on SMBF, and it is, by far, one of the best forums I have ever had the pleasure of joining.

The SMB is in pretty good shape, but it needs a little work. I'm sure I'll have many questions in the days to come!

Cheers!

Ha, needs a little work? Welcome to the upgrade-itis club. There's always something you can improve besides general maintenance.

I frequent quite a few different forums and this is by far the best

Webs sites are nice but he's probably wanting to see some pics posted here. Usually you get this:

The van is at the 4x4 shop getting new tires and some other stuff done. When it comes back I'll take some pictures and post them.

(There sure are a lot of emoticons featuring drinking. I should fit in well here.)

Thanks for the kind words! Right now, we live in Virginia, but we plan to move to New Mexico in the coming months.

Guess I better add my location to my profile!

Hey Todd,

Welcome aboard! Nice website. I too, am a photographer and got the SMB mainly for that reason. Most folks here want to see pics of your rig. Me too, but I want to see good imagemaking as well. Check out my site, if you have a minute.

Yeah, pics of both your rig and travels

I left VA in 86 never to return. Class of 84 at VPI.
