      There are a number of parents around, and some which have done the double like you are doing too. Mines qualified but I lurk from time to time...... Stay around long enough and you even get to understand some of the technical questions. Or at least know the answers can be found in the search function, something which the youngsters often fail to use.
      At least with one being a cadet, you have the benefit of experience for number 2.
      My number two decided digging holes looking for ancient things was more his thing. Still don't understand half of what he talks about, no forum, such a drawback 😉
