Good lord when I break it down archery/hunting is one expensive hobby for the up-front costs. Still buying stuff for this new bow and I'm still not done yet! So far I have got new strings and ld string, arrows and vanes, arrow holder for the LD, sight (sold the other to offset some cost), new nocks, sling.

Mind you this bow came complete ... I'm just goofy and have to have it my way. Plans to get an Apache Stab, Bohning Chameleon quiver and the new Carbon STS yet. In the end it is all worth it.

Just gotta wait for the new mods to arrive and I'll be all set to get back to shooting again. I should have my arrows cut and fletched by then.

Most adult hobbys are $$pendy or we wouldn't have them. I'd hate to figure out how much the wife & I have invested in archery. My Elk hunt set us back $1800 and that's with a resident tag & DIY. However, my other hobby is way more $$$$$$.
Your looking at $2400 per car here to be competetive. Then like archery a ton of expensive support equipment is required.

got a nephew into that, moved on to remote airplanes had to laugh when he crashed one uh i mean every one, a little worried now he bought a real one, one of those ultralights, i think he has too much money i think he needs to get married. that will take care of his money problems

a couple of years ago i decided to start brewing my own beer instead of investing in ice fishing equipment, i think i made the right choice:o

My last hobby was/is designer vinyl toys & art ... probably have close a grand worth of stuff in my room.

The things we do. I'll be 52 in a few days & I also collect diecast car characters from the orignal Pixar Cars movie. Believe it or not, there's close to $1000 here and they are only getting higher.

Ole' Lizzy here is currently going for well over $100 if you can find it. I got her for $28 almost a year ago. Bessie the road paver is very rare and $150-$250.

I thought that my hunting bow setup was expensive!. Now that I'm trying to get my Target bow setup together. It blows the hunting setup away. I collect Prison / jail Badges, Patches, Batons, cuffs, etc. It too can get expensive.

No foolin, a good target sight is 1/2 or more the cost of a bow.

Hobbies are pricey, but money aint got no home and you cant take it with you.

deerchser,
thats a nice little pickup, but did you run out of rhino liner?
5857
JK i like the blue black combo, my buddy talked me into doing the whole thing-sure did fill in a lot of dents. it was between gray and army green. figured the green could have been a little too redneck

thats the pit in one of my brothers 3 shops. he quit farming 15 years ago and all the barns are turning into really cool garages/shops, its just too bad i have to drive two hours to use them.
its pretty hard to get used to changing oil without it.
the big beef barn just got converted into shop with a lift and a pit along with a living quarters. i think this way he doesn't have to listen to his wife complain about all the time he spends there
yea the concrete business is alot work but i think he likes all the toys he can afford now. i think theres three different 69 camaros around and who knows what else is in and out of there. always something new
