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

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
    • 2 baldies were getting it on last thursday about 100 yards from where we were fishing. pretty cool. spring is in the air... LOL
