    Hello RWF People What Other Hobbies do you Have.

    This Is A Rotor Craft Forum, But most of us Have other hobbies so tell me about your hobbies.



    For Me Most Of You Will Think It's Childish But I assure you it's not I started this in 1976 at the age of 6 but only got real serious about it in 2008
    I'm a airgun fanatic and i'm addicted I buy air guns mod then and build them from scratch it's a fun hobby but if your not careful it gets very expensive fast.
    I have one Airgun that I build my self and have had others make parts for me that I have over 2000$ invested and it's not even compleated yet.

    Other thing you have to watch is you can buy a 900$ airgun and spend 1000$ more on tuning parts and modding it.

    but what I like the most is a do Field Target competition with my airguns and this is a super competitive sport that is a ton of fun.

    Yes, All In is right, it's me getting high again. I do ice climbing up frozen waterfalls in the winter and mountaineering in the summers, and I've been up big mountains in Ecuador, Argentina, Tanzania, Italy, France, Switzerland, and all over the U.S. I had big plans to go to Nepal and summit Ama Dablam in the Everest region this fall (picture attached). The plans were made long ago when I was fully healthy, before I got flattened by a drunk driver while on my bicycle a couple months ago, so now I'm working really hard on physical therapy in the hope of getting somewhere near good enough condition again in time to complete the trip. This recovery business seems every bit as hard as the toughest climbs I've done.
    Ama Dablam, Nepal

    Napoleon used urine from the soldiers and animals and used it as a source of nitrate. The urine was collected, converted from calcium nitrate to potassium nitrate (saltpeter), and combined with charcoal and sulfur to field armies
    .
    Urine has its uses; Mexican leather goods used to be called “piss cured leather” and probably still is. Anyone who has smelled Mexican cowboy boots understands why.

    During the Vietnam war, aircrews were told that if shot down over North Vietnam and injured, to urinate on wounds; healthy urine having antiseptic properties.

    I'm old so have all the toys I used to be into each of those ALL IN as I am now with gyros. So today when friends call I grab a toy and go play maybe only get to do each of those 5 to 10 times a year.
    San Diego is the only place I can live where all of this is available from 15 min's to 1.5 hours away including mountains for camping, hiking and fishing, and I use Mexico, next door as gas their is 1/2 the price no taxes and dentists are about 20% of the cost in the states and if I needed a prescription even all of the old folks homes take a bus to the boarder. They walk across the boarder and buy them for 10% of the cost here as our companies sell them to Mexico for that much less as they know they cannot afford our prices and would all die.
