Just wanted to say "hi"!

Hello, Dear LogHome Neighboorhood users!

I just thought that I would introduce myself, having been accepted by the community admins.

The name is Brian, born and raised not so far from Sydney, Australia. A huge lover of trekking and visiting nearby forests with my dogs.

I do own a small log cabin where I tend to spend a good part of a year.

I hope to find some great people here to share our interests.
