    Hey there folks, been a while.

    Was browsing through here the other day getting all sad looking at all the nice photos and TR's of Bogong and the other stunning places in Oz...thought I'd say G'day...this is what I did

    Made a baby.

    Glad to see the usual suspects are still around, keep on bending your knees....

    -peace-

    Eh, MBK. This sounds exceedingly lame, but I was asking after you among the BC forums only a couple of weeks ago.

    Good outcome for you and yours.

    Cheers.. [​IMG]

    Couldn't have a better birthday present. And you'll share that with him for the rest of your life [​IMG]
    You'll have him skiing before he can walk [​IMG]

    Congrats to MBK and +1.

    Yeah Alex, you nailed it.

    The way we're going, I think ski.com is making a conscious effort to take over BC. So many forum members making it their home, and some of them breeding too [​IMG]

    Dude, congrats. Look after the bub, and yourself, but also your missus. It can be a challenging year or two for new families, physically and mentally.

    Stay cool and happy.

    Once the rest of the forum works out how that breeding thing happens, they'll all be doing it.

    Welcome back MBK. Great to hear from you. Nothing like getting the new kid on the block skiing and climbing and out exploring before walking and talking. Have fun with your family and enjoy - Cheers

    Great stuff MBK. I'd love to be able to tell someone who asked, "hey dude, when was your first ski trip ?" And to reply "Two". "Wow 2 years old, that's pretty cool" And reply "No man 2 weeks old". Core MBK , all the best.
