Question Other hobbies?

Besides airsoft, what else does everyone waste their money on? For me, another longstanding hobby has been r/c cars. I got my first one back in the late 80's as a Christmas present from my dad. I just wanted a silly Tyco or something, instead I got a Tamiya Hornet. What followed was an obsession with racing, which took me into my college years with a couple of RC10 cars.

Here is my latest project. It's an Axial Scorpion rock crawler that has more custom and aftermarket parts than original. I designed the custom chassis in SolidWorks, and it was cut out of aluminum by a laser at the machine shop I used to work at. It has a custom steering servo setup, metal CVD driveshafts, LiPo battery...the works.






And here is my nitro racing truck. It's a Traxxas Revo 3.3, again, with a bunch of goodies. After racing electrics for a decade and a half, I decided to take the plunge into nitro. This thing mostly sits on a shelf, because I can't stand the smell of the fumes. I did some racing with it last year , but the environment is too competitive for my tastes.

I waste a ton of money on soccer. Last time I visited the local soccer shop, i dropped $180 on new shoes, $35 for a new ball, $20 of extra socks, $15 on new shinguards, $20 worth of tape, and about $60 on random clothes. So that was $330 (not including tax), and I do that probally once a season.

In my Sophmore and Junior years of High School I had more money than I knew what to do with so I ended up buying alot of DVD's. Now of which I wish I had saved my money for Airsoft but I didn't think I'd be in it at this time.

I like to go mountian biking, skateboarding, dirt and street bmxing. The feeling of getting air and landing clean on something is the best feeling in the world to me. Now that I have my first car it will be working on it. '98 Monte Carlo FTW.

Sports too. Well there's alot of those. Football, lacrosse, paintball (not as much now as I used to :P), road biking (sort of), mt biking, and alpine skiing.

And as far as out door stuff goes rock climbing, hiking, kayaking, ice climbing, fishing, shooting, and hunting.

Aside from airsoft I spend a good amount of money on wrestling. Just recently I got a new pair of shoes, headgear, and knee pads for around $175-200. Also i'm still in to paintball a little bit but am trying to get rid of all my stuff because I barely ever play anymore.

That's cool. A colleague of mine also has one of those rock crawlers. He sent me a video. It's pretty cool what they can do.

Mostly your mom and porn.

Percussion, ice skating, skiing, kneeboarding, pretty much anything outdoors. Binge drinking is another one of my favorites. I also consider myself a computer genious.

And last but certainly not least! My Z:

Do you ice skate while binge drinking? I use to binge drink until I started binge puking.

PS. Nice car !

I write plays and prepare for the zombie apocalypse. (I tried combining those two once, but it turned out really lame.)

The idea of a Zombie Apocolapyse would only be fun if one had an elevated position, plenty of ammo, food, beer,women, and could call it off whenever you wanted.

When not airsofting:
Aside from having the "college experience" I track my slow car, alpine ski, a little tennis. Those are what first come to mind.
