Well guys, I know I haven't been on the board in a LONG time, lemme give youa quick run down...Most importantly, I found out at noon today that my wife is PREGNANT!!!! Our 1st, so I am incredibly excited...Other then that, I have found a new hobbie, it is called...NITRO-METHANE!!!! I have gotten into the nitro R/C cars....MY wife gave me a choice, our cars with limited fundage, or any other hobbie with unlimited funding...Long story short, I did the immature thing...Anyway, the main purpose of this thread is...I am ABOUT TO BE A DADDY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanx for reading everyone...

Shane and Heather.......

Nitro-methane cars are really expensive to get into. I have one and I have lots invested. I would sell it if I could get half of what I have into it and dump it into my car. But that is another story. If you have any questions about those things be sure to ask. If you have any questions about the baby be sure not to ask me cause I wouldn't know. Congrats and good luck with the baby

Congrats to you both.

Being former military myself I know the great benifits of hospitals on base. Spent way too much time in them as a child and while active duty... hence why I am a civy again... lol

I say we start a birth pool, maybe $5 per ticket. We pick one date (and one only). Half of the proceeds go to the winner of the raffle, half go to the family to be... just a suggestion.

Kids are expensive. Hobbies have a tendency to die off or get lessened once a child is born. :tongue:

*sniff-sniff* that is why I love this forum so much, you guys ROCK! Well, I guess if all were willing, hey Sir Will, what do you say? I never thought of that either, it does suck too b/c I am being discharged in 2 months, so the daddy will be un-employed, but Heather (kodiak chick) is staying in...That would help out a lot...Anyway, yeah, got into nitro about 6 weeks ago, and now I am up to 5 cars/trucks....I appreciate all of the wishes, and if you guys do want to start a pool, for the voters, we have been "peeing on sticks" for the last week, and just yesterday, did it turn out positive...Just a hint :D again, thank you all for the kind comments!!!

I got over 1g in my Traxxas stuff.. And I started a two months ago, I am already contiplating switching to Heli-Copter Fun :)

Air Radio (7 Channel) - 350
Helicopter (ouch) - ~ 500
More parts needed ~ 200

Ok, My theory is, Why start at the Basics? Just get the big dog to begin with :)

You can dump $1000 in R/C, and $1000 in a Car, the $1000 in the car will last 10x Longer then the R/C Car.

But shadow is right, after the Baby is born, Say goooooobye to hobbies untils you get used to the Crimp in the budget..

Diapers are NOT cheap :)

Hmmm, yeah, I have heard that kids are pricey to have...but, she wanted one so I gave her one, and when I tried telling her that she "owed" me...OMG I got a look that could kill...OF course all of this was in fun, I told her since I got her pregnant, I want a Mark VIII. she said "maybe"...there is a guy here with a 95, 50000 miles, and it is in mint condition...only wants $6000....Take it or leave it?
