    Built a chopper a few years back, always something to work on with it.

    ^^^Your patience and talent certainly show in your train videos. Your attention to detail is an enviable trait.

    Three kids (8,4, and 15 months), and a wife with a farming habit. Aside from that a small fleet of ~30 semis I'm tasked to care for.

    What's a hobby?:confused:

    Well I am working virtually from home, but in my spare time I am replacing the fly bridge dash. This also resulted having to replace/upgrade all the switches, engine kill switches and engine alarms. Just finished the new design and converted them ( total three dashes) to DXF files so my buddy can cut them out on his CNC Router. He will then engrave them on his laser. Should look real nice. All this started when the VHF went out. Fine by me as I have replaced all the rest of the electronics on the boat that are NMEA 2000 networked. This will be the final piece.

    I don’t know if this counts as a hobby, but took the 20-yr-old Honda motorcycle out today and walked a mile on the beach. This is my idea of social distancing and Vitamin D therapy...

    I don't ever, ever wear shorts. I'd turn that beach into a rifle range. Lol

    There was a house I lived at when I was 18-19 just off 6 mile and Telegraph in Detroit. That had a huge Led Zeppelin mural on the basement wall. I wish I had a picture of it, but at 18 you dont think about those things. The house is demolished now but it was cool

    Took the s2000 out yesterday for a short drive to get lunch. Now to get my BMW's ready to ride with the weather starting to warm up. Been loading some 38 special loads up for my sister, and 10 auto loads for my new pistol (Kimber Camp Guard).

    Donated barrels from Shilen for the TX Juniors will be here tomorrow. These will keep me busy through these days ahead.

    Probably for the same reason you didn'd mentioned it, too many other projects that got delayed because of our sport.

    At least this thread isn’t about to much cooking and food.
    We should all have prepped brass, loaded ammo and gain 10 pounds.

    You guys have some neat stuff going on.
    I am neck turning brass:(

    I can't wait until it warms just a bit more here, I have a sweet 16 1/2 foot Eddyline kayak that hasn't been wet since October, perfect for social distancing. Some good music and smooth water and this is one happy guy.
