Hello to all. My name is Rick and I am starting my journey back into this wonderful hobby after a six year absence. My last display was at my home in Minneapolis and was all RGB lights on 3 Renard SS24 controllers. I retired and, along with my wife, traveled the lower 48 states for four years in an RV. We have now settled in Northern Colorado and I am eager to begin again to build a display for 2018. From my reading of this and other forums it is clear that the tools of this industry have evolved and I am still trying to get a handle on the latest technology. I look forward to the adventure and advise from the great experience found on this site.
