I would highly suggest finding a friend who is savvy in all of these things, invite them up to spend the weekend with you and then have them show you all they know. I am more of a hands on show me once then I can do it kind of guy. Sounds like you may be too. In any event, it will give you some company, maybe cost you some adult beverages, and a couple of steaks. In the end you will have plenty of stories to share with others. And you will get all of your questions answered. By the way, where is your semi-private pad located?
In any event, have fun.
