Long time member back just checking in

Post by wazzle »

Hello everyone, It has been a long time since I logged in. Father of two Rangers and a moderator of the Ranger Parents Forum. Just wondering if anyone is checking in?

Things have been good. I spend a lot of time at work on the computer, so I'll start checking back in. Things were really hopping a few years ago for sure.

Yeah they really were. People have moved on to more private ways to communicate like private Facebook groups or just not doing a social media level of interaction at all since most of them are not private anymore.

This account here is blatantly connected to my personal life without even me doing it, as an example and warning to others. So there is that. But it's too late now.

Lots of lurkers... many fresh faces who show up wanting mentoring. Coincidentally there was someone who mentioned being a parent of someone in RASP recently. Hopefully they post an intro and you can police them up.

I will check for intros from parents. It may take a bit of playing around to remember how to get them accepted to the Ranger Parent Forum, but sure I can figure it out.

Things are going fine. One Ranger son lives 14 hours west of us and the other Ranger is moving 12 hours east of us. I assume we will remain here, in the center of both. How are y'all doing?

Doing well enough. Turning into a bitter old man it would seem. Yelling at people to get off my lawn and slow down driving in the neighborhood.

Its been a long time, great to see you all dropping in and saying hello. I am sure many can remember when the journey started and the challenges in between. Now we are a bit wiser! (Ok some are) and our patience for stupidity is at Zero (Fs).
