Nice to see another newbie heat gun roaster. I've just started out too, and I'm really enjoying the process, and the coffee. Usually I roast decaf, but have also done some regular coffee roasts for family and friends. I'm enjoying the learning process, and how much feedback you get (sights, smells, sounds, etc) while standing over the roast. Each time there are ways I can think to tweak the next roast, try to make it better. But there are also times when I just relax and see where the roast takes me.
Lucky you, living in Sebastopol - I hear it's beautiful and a wonderful place to live. Hope to visit there someday (I'm all the way on the other side of the country in Massachusetts)
Enjoy your adventures in roasting, and keep us posted on how things go.
