    Newbie needs assistance with the "Lingo"

    As the title of this thread says, I'm new here and need to understand all the new verbiage I'm reading. Is there a place where someone can go to learn all the "new" unfamiliar terms? Is there a Hammocker's Dictionary? Between a lot of reading and doing some YouTube watching (thanks Shug!) I'm starting to get the hang of it but it seems a bit confusing at first. If there is a source for learning the terms I'd love to find out about it. I'm pretty much doing this on my own so it's not like I have someone to hand all this knowledge down to me like my dad did with camping & fishing. So feel free to point me in any direction that may be of assistance.

    That's all for now. Thanks for any help you can give me and until next time...Be well.

    It's more like the New Testament. Never forget speer's book too...
