Failure is just an excuse to try something else drink more beer or spend more money really need to find a less expensive hobby. So many gadgets so little time and funds.

Thanks Nick

I’m in the middle- 63. But work out (weight lifting and cycling) 6 days a week and black belt in Tae Kwon Do. Best part- taking early retirement in Dec so I can play more!! Just need to keep out of the wife’s hair as she still wants to work.
