So,...what other hobbies does everyone have?
Me,...I have a few...
I have a HotWheels collection of over 3000 pieces. Not counting track sets and other miscellaneous paraphernalia. The vast majority are still in original blister packs including 60's 70's and 80's models and many limited edition pieces.
I also have a hundred or so vintage plastic model cars and trucks...95% sealed.
One of my favorites are my Slot Cars. At the previous house, I had a 6' x 23' 4-lane layout with 20' straightaways, banked curves, hair-pins, etc... I modify the cars with lightweight bodies, custom rewound and balanced armatures, different ring and pinion combos (depending on car), custom ground tires, etc... Having a half dozen buddies over for race night with a few beers...good time! Hopefully I will have everything back together soon. I am currently partitioning the basement in the new place for a sound room and race room.
I am also a fisherman. I do a little bass fishing on occasion, I used to belong to and fish with BassMasters, but my real love is Bluegill. Where I live, I have access to many hidden and private farm ponds where we use ultralight rods to catch monster 'Gills all day long. There is NOTHING like a plate of Bluegill fillets and fried 'taters!
