My name is Lance, & I've enjoyed D&D since 1991. I'm 29, happily involved, & reside in the Bradenton/Sarasota, FL. area.
Welcome Lance! There's not a lot here at the moment, but things will pick up after April. My wife has three more weeks of radiation treatment to go through and that is draining me by focusing my life so narrowly on the treatments and their side effects.
While I cut my teeth on Mentzer, I quickly moved to AD&D2e; this is the system I stuck with for most of my junior high/high school years.
I think the RC is my favorite single version of D&D. AD&D1e with some house rules is a lot of fun too.
Within the past year or so, I've discovered OD&D (1974 edition), & have been having a blast with it. Our very small group plays only around once a month, but we sure have a great time with it!
I started with OD&D and it probably shows as I think nothing of changing the rules of whatever RPG I'm running to better fit my campaign. All OD&D campaigns did that. There wasn't any choice. LOL.
