Hello. My name is Marcus and I live in Kenosha. Been into FP for about 3 years now. Originally as a way to try to get better penmanship as I have chicken scratch and it was only getting worse. Still have scrawl but Now I have pens I like to write with now. So far they are just 4 Lamy Safaris and one Metropolitan. Been a journalor for about 20 years though, nice to have different colors for journaling. Been using Diamine Red Dragon, Noodlers Bay State Blue, Noodlers Heart of Darkness and Lamy Blue and Black Cartridges. Having trouble with Baystate Blue and Diamine Red Dragon in Lamys but read this might be predictable for these ink and pen combos.

One of the best fountain pen stores in the U.S. is a few hours from Kenosha, Anderson Pens in Appleton, WI. Well worth the trip. http://www.andersonpens.com
Keep 'er movin'!

Welcome to our little corner of the universe from a pen user in San Diego.

I second the Anderson Pens comment. Great place.
Watch for the notices for the monthly Chicago pen meetings, if you're interested in that sort of thing. Probably 30 or 35 minutes from Kenosha. You're also relatively close to the yearly Chicago Pen Show.
One test is worth a thousand expert opinions.

Welcome, Marcus !
Auf freiem Grund mit freiem Volke stehn.
Zum Augenblicke dürft ich sagen:
Verweile doch, du bist so schön !

Hello and welcome to FPN, from Cape Town, South Africa.
To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!
