I'm Mike,

I have been browsing the forums for the last few days and have been in total bloody bliss!

I have been wanting to knock the socks off the local kids for years, and never knew that anyone made these fantastic halloween haunts!! The closest anyone has come in this area is a haunted house that a customer of mine ran for a few years....

In syracuse, we sometimes get snow on hallows eve, so that makes it interesting around here that time of year. I had to trick or treat in a snowsuit one year...just to stay warm!

Anyhow...I just wanted to say hello, before I started to plan my house of horrors for the next year ;)

Thank you one and all for the cold, damp welcome!

I am really looking forward to setting something up this year. At the moment, I am waiting for a call from the post office about an interview for a job there. If that happens, I may have to scale back my ideas until next year 'cuz the hours will be nutty until I get some seniority.

But, on the plus side, it'll double my earnings ;) Looootsa prop goodness ;)

So, in closing. I really appreciate the welcome folks. I can already tell from my explorations that everyone has a blast, has a ton of good info that they share and are extremely friendly.

What more could a corpse want? ;)

Welcome!
You may not have many props done in time for the big day but we all started out small. Most of the haunters here are building practically everyday of the year. You can be one of them :D so jump on in!

Welcome!
I hope your job interview turns into a job!
Work does tend to get in the way of the much more important things....like prop building.....but until we all hit the lotto, gotta do something to bring in the cash!
We are all very well known for making the most with the least, but it's the storage area some of us must pay for!

Thanks one and all :)

I really appreciate the welcome from everyone. Makes me feel like I'm among friends even though I haven't met anyone yet :)

I have set on one project that I think I can get done before hallows eve this year....A flickering lantern.

If that goes well, I can see myself starting to work on a pop-up of some sort to kinda add some wow factor to it :)

Wish me luck.

-Mike
