Guns, homebrew, amateur radio

Guns, homebrew, amateur radio and video games.


Since childhood. I used to find pretty ones in the creek then take them up and down the street selling them to neighbors. Innocent days, the neighbors always bought them...
I have probably 1/2 ton of specimens I have dragged back and forth across the country as we moved around. Tourmaline, actinolite and "Herkimer diamonds" (quartz crystals) from New York, fossils and flint from Ohio, amethyst, jasper and quartz crystals from Arkansas, a bit of Idaho opal and lots of almandine garnet, some Oregon sunstone, obsidian nodules... I can't leave the house without a rock following me home. I have a polisher that I use to make cabochons and do a bit of free-hand faceting for fun. Funny you should ask, it literally got buried by "Ron Paul 2008" gear, and I JUST got everything pulled together to try to get back into it.
Besides that, I collect boats. Canoe, kayak, cataraft, paddle raft, sailboat so far. I never meant to collect boats, I just keep getting deals I can't refuse. I can't refuse because I never met an excuse to get on the water I did not like.
I try very hard not to collect boats while rock hounding nor to collect rocks while boating. They just don't mix well...

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

I still find myself doing that

collecting random, interesting rocks I see when I'm out and about.

Used to live right next to a beach and found smooth and nearly perfectly circular ones, pieces of magma, and even ones that looked like slices of swiss cheese. Seashells, too of course.

Very cheap, easy way to spruce up an end table, mantle, or hutch.

dust and orchids

I have a vintage dust collection in every room of the house :). And orchids -an addiction impossible to break.


Ah, a fellow dust collector!

Isn't 75% of dust...

...human skin shedding?!

Not sure on the exact percentage

but yeah, a lot of it is. Animal dander and little pieces of clothing material, too. I'd also imagine that insect husks would contribute a small percentage.

Lawnboy mowers

I buy, sell, restore, Ebay, give as gifts old Lawnboy push mowers. They were bought out in 1989 by Toro, and the EPA has since banned further production of 2-cycle lawnmowers. I've always had at least one for my own use, and have always been strangely attracted to the way they sound and smell when running. The original parent company was OMC/Evinrude, and they literally ARE a small boat motor that turns a cutting blade. People collect and restore them all over the country, as they are now the 'forbidden-fruit' of lawn maintenance.

There's a couple dozen of them in my barn. The oldest is a 1955, and I have 1962, 1964, and 1967 models as my other oldies.

I like to collect thoughts...

I love trail running day or night in the woods . No matter winter snow or 100 degree heat. There is nothing better than being at peace with nature as you run down a forest trail. Nothing but. You, the trees, the leaves, the wind the animals and air you breath into your lungs. It brings me back to a primitive state of consciensness . There I find my true self while collecting my thoughts with no peripheral distractions.

But if you must run with headphones then put this one in as your running down a rocky switchback across a wooded black diamond ski hill
