Enjoy your vaca Grant!... In NH we've gone from running the wood stove to frantically installing the window ACs within a day... it is summer now and I plan on a night of Mojitos!

Well Hi. Hapa told me about this yesterday so I took a look.


I live in Maine. I am a father as my girlfriend has a son. Yes "I'm am not his real dad" he reminds me often... We don't see eye to eye often, but when his mother got sick a while back, his grandparents basically let him make all the shots, so he has a hard time when I tell him no.


As for gaming I am a table top gamer and PC gamer. I got out of the console market years ago. Right now things like Total War and WoWs are my games of choice. I am not the best at them, but do well I feel.For table top, I do Warhammer fantasy (yes it is dead now....), Warhammer 40k, Flames of War, Naval Thunder (WW1 and WW2 naval actions), and Kings of War (my new fantasy game).

"True leaders understand that leadership is not about them but about those they serve. It is not about exalting themselves but about lifting others up.”


I can imagine a no more rewarding career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worth while, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction: "I served in the United States Navy." -JFK

AHH TeamSpeak, here's hoping that my internet can handle that. 3mb DSL with a teenager in the house. Looking to upgrade, just need to find the best choice.

Welcome Tim.  Great that you know Hapa.  He is a stand out dad here.  Glad you decided to check us out, and yeah, I feel you on the bandwidth issue.  Some of these dads have their own fiber optic cable, and like to brag about their speed in their signature.  PFFT!!!  Anyway man, I'm sure you will get it, and maybe just have rotate us when your son is off or away.  I hope you enjoy the site, and being part of this great community.
