Nice to hear from you again.
My interaction with your Dad was limited to this board. And, although I never met him in person, he was always very nice and cool to me here, and it seemed genuine enough that I could tell he was like that "in real life," too.
Good luck with you contests. Yes: you can find some valuable information on here, and some sections you may wish to explore include the Training, Nutrition, and Women's training boards.
While free to do as you'd like, I offer the friendly suggestion of avoiding the Gossip & Opinion board at the top of the main page. It's more of a battleground for anonymous trolls and gimmicks with not much practical input to gain.
Of course, if you inherited your Dad's propensity to stomp mud holes into hacks and phonies, you may enjoy spending some time there!
Well said Monty.
