    I am currently awaiting delivery on a Switchback 1.9 SL, a custom MacCat Deluxe, and a 3S Incubator.

    I really don't know why my WBBB 1.7 DL wasn't enough anymore.......it really is a sickness.

    Any hobby your passionate about is expensive.
    Try hunting, fishing, woodworking, leathercraft, boating, etc., They all consume your money.
    At least I sleep good. And I've met some good folks along the way!

    I have found over the years,,if you buy quality stuff,,and take care of it,,it will last a life time. In my upstairs 16' x 20 gear room,,I have packs, 30 and 35 yrs old,,that I tried on the other day,,that wear super bad,,and weight a ton,,man some of the gear is ancient,,lol,,but still very good and looks great,,I am a gear freak of sorts and won't part with any of it,,as if it could only tell the stories behind all of it.

    It probably wouldnt hurt to self flagellate with some whoopie slings either

    Edit: Well ok, it would hurt.
