Shreveport. My girlfriend is a travel nurse, so we bounce around constantly. I've been out of the military for about 5 years now.

We've been to Humble and Texas City in the past. Always a chance we'll end up there again.

I would love to, as well. Unfortunately my wife is going on a girl's trip and leaving me with the kids. Has anybody tried rigging a detector to a stroller before?

Not a stroller, but I have found that a baby bjorn carrier does not get in the way when you are swinging.
