I've handed out about 1/2 dozen and I don't think I've seen anybody show up under the introductions.

Yep. Still going. Less than a year to go to graduation! Although, I feel something's gonna give somewhere in my life. I'm working full-time on top of all this, as well. With the baby, I might have to cut back on school a little bit. Not to mention, I hope to start flying here within the next year.

Speaking of which, I've got to print out more.

I don't think any of the flyers I've put out there have gotten us any new members, either. I've put out about as many as you have. Hopefully, if someone signs up on this forum as a result of a flyer, they'll let us know.

Congratulations on the new baby! That's fantastic!

Does Abigail like your hybrid? Some babies find a car ride very soothing- it helps get them to sleep, and I'm sure your HAH has a really smooth ride. What has your experience been? 'The hybrid: a baby-friendly car!' or something else?

Thanks!

I think so. We did the 530 mile trip this past weekend and she slept the whole way. Well, it was 260 the first day and 240 the next day. She only started to get fussy on the last 30 miles of the trip.

I'd say it's pretty baby friendly. Nice smooth ride. Fairly dark (but not blacked out) window tint. I'm guessing it helped her sleep. Getting the carseat in and out of the backseat was no problem whatsoever. The rear doors open plenty wide enough to be able to maneuver the seat in and out. I haven't tried to fit the stroller into the trunk yet, but it looks like it'll fit just fine. Also, I sat in the back seat to get a feel of the roominess with the carseat in place and it felt just fine. Even with the front seats all the way back in their tracks.

Congrats again, this time on the graduation! That's great- and if you do get a chance to fly professionally, that would be incredible. Pilots make a ton of money- not to mention the fact that it must be such a great feeling. Might be a little tough to leave the military right now, though- they seem to be trying very hard to retain people, stop-loss and all that, right? I guess I don't really know, though.

Best of luck! And a hello to little Abigail!
