Well, im still pretty new here... and still dont know that much abotu everyone..but im getting there!.. i thoguht it would be mayeb neat for everyone to share thier stories about how they got stated crabbing and mayeb how long you've been doing it, where you got your first crab...etc... I guess ill just get it going with my story... well, when i was about 9 yrs old i had two hermit crabs. i had no resources then, and from what i know now... i wish i could go back into the past and slap myself in the face. but i was young, and pretty much innocent.. so i forgive myself. ive only just started crabbing on nov. 9th( i think) WOW.. i just made myself realize that i havent even been doing this for a month yet! it seems alot longer then that..and im already addicted!! anywho.. i work at walmart...so im always there..im one of those..whaddya call it..."walmart junkies".. :shuffle: haha. well, id been seeing those "crab in a cup" things for a long time. and dispising them cmpletely..so i would always tell myself..dont buy one..your just going to be supporting them... but one night i just HAD to buy one....but of course i couldnt just buy one.. so i bought two( billie and polo). i started out and decided i needed some more information on them(in which, i found this site). i realized i was doing it all wrong.. and the whole point of buying them was to give them the best life i could..so i did what i had to and now i have 5 crabs and planning to get many more in the future. i still have many more hurdles to jump.. my story isnt really an interesting one..but its how i started, and im glad i did!! Now evryone tell yours!
