Hi Antfans, finally taken the plunge

Hi all, have taken the plunge and joined up after alot of dithering about...am planning to go to my first Ant Lib weekender this year but really nervous about what to expect. Will be travelling up from Liverpool on my own, leaving him-in-doors to 3 kids and bonfire night-ha ha ha! it's about time I got back to my first love from 30 years ago!
