My other Hobby! Whats yours?

SO like the tittle says heres my other hobby when not tinkering with a bike, or spending time with the kids.

I build 1/14th scale RC semi trucks. All start off from a stock kit then they get customized. I am down to 3 trucks but at one time had 8. Each truck varies in time and price and can go as low as a $700 shelf sitter to a FUll RC with lights and sound ranging up to $2k-$5000. I belong to several forums and a few clubs. It is not a hobby for everyone due to the costs of it all but I like it so I thought I would share some of my work with you all.

This is my Favorite truck I built.





Heres some from a meet




Just thought id share with you.


So what do you all do when not riding?

That's quite a little fleet there! (Yes, that was intended.)
Now that drones are all the rage, I wish I had gotten into RC airplanes.

Camping, fly fishing and hunting. That's why I haven't been typing as much lately...deer season.

If you had asked that question 5 years ago it would have been bass fishing but lately it has been shooting.

It used to be shooting. But I spent about 3 years being sick. Had zero energy for hobbies. Much better now and my energy level is back. Now I spend my free time doing all the home repairs I neglected. As soon as I can catch up I'll get back into it. I've been thinking of trying idpa.

I am a self proclaimed coffee connoisseur. It's cheaper than many hobbies and brings great joy to myself and my family.
