The newest HST dad

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Who's the newest HST dad?

Big congratulations, but pretty easy to figure this one out.
First time dad you say?
I have two sons in college,
GB has fishing kids (girls) as he oft mentions them fondly...
Russ has dogs and horses, and with his attitude...doubtful,
OldRanger is just too old, (I wonder how he even got a vote?)
leaving...

Well done secret dad! =D>

I figured it out through elimination, then followed Greg's link to see he was of the right age for a first timer. I also thought OR had voted for himself, just for fun. Kiss your sleep goodbye buddy :-({|=

Well congrats to Mrs. and Mr. Copeg :thumbsup: . I have to admit for a second I thought it might have been OR as well. Would have explained those funky dreams he was having last year :D :wink: :p
If you stand in the light, you get the feel of the night, and the music that plays in your ear......
In your mind you can hear, a voice so sweet and clear, and the music that plays in your head......
As it flows up from the ground, taking all that hear the sound, close your eyes, it’s about to begin.

Congrats! Some day you may be a grandparent, and do it all over again! There were a few days along the way that I wondered if it was worth it, but now that they are grown up and have kids of their own, all the sleepness nights definitely were worth it.

My kids are in their early teens, so I have many of those days. I tell them that if I had my way, abortion would be legal from inception to age 18 :unibrow: In my heart, I've never regretted having kids, but I wish I'd done it sooner. We started when I was 36 and my wife was 38. I thought older and wiser was a good thing. But I soon realized that there was something to be said about being young, dumb and full of energy. Now that we're in our 50's, most of our friends are empty nesters or approaching that stage while we're in the worst of the teen years wondering if we'll ever have our own life again. At one time, I had a daughter in puberty and a wife starting menopause. My son and I did a lot of back yard camping during those times.
