I encourage all members new and old to go to profiles and fill in some of the information. A lot of answers to your questions will depend on where you live. If you don't want to get to detailed then at least put your state in location. Many methods and products are different for the northern states than the southern states, for inland states and coastal states.
Yes! I make this point in the "Before you post..." section of the boards (at the very top of the page TOH-D homepage). Location is a very important factor to be considered when attempting to answer many questions. So, if modifying your profile is too much to ask, at least make mention of your location (city, state) in the body of your post. It will get you quicker, better answers from the community!
