OH my... Competing hobbies!

7 posts in this topic

I have a dilemma.. the last 4 summers I ONLY wanted to fish.. this spring... I fell in love with another hobby... and both require nice, dry, calm days... they CLASH! I only get out fishing now around 1 day per week vs. 4 to 5 last summer. My new hobby is a money sink.. very addictive.. and very very challenging and lots of tinkering time with tiny tiny screws an bearings....

What hobby is that you say?

Check this out!

Opps... can I keep a YouTube link up? If not (and a mod deletes it) go to Youtube and search 'stock500L'... first video.

I've found that days that are "good enough" for RC flying of any kind for me are rarer than good enough for fishing, so you shouldn't feel bad taking one of those extremely rare perfectly calm no-wind days for some flying.

True. What do you fly?

Anyone on here fly R/C helis? Seems such a RARE hobby.. I'd love to meet someone local with this passion! smile

I will also be getting into 'planks' (airplanes) now that I have a good radio. (I currently am flying the Esky Honeybee FP and the Blade 400 3D).. amazing machines.

Can you say EXPENSIVE hobby!! when I was into that we had no money for food or gas so my wife said either fishing or flying, my planes are now collecting dust in the basement.

Good luck looks like fun

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
