Well, where to begin...

First would have to be the Burning man event because we do spend all year planning for it. Planning camp and art projects, etc... Then when we get out there we do spend 2 weeks in what amounts to a working vacation for us.
When we finally come home we have such a tough time adjusting to real life!

Secondly would have to be astronomy. With 3 large aperture scopes in our possession, we do love to look at the heavens!

On a tangent note, when he is old enough to leave his mother I will be picking up a cocker spaniel puppy when we return from Disney World at the end of the month. I put a deposit on him this week end and asked the breeder to start using his name. His name will be "Sulley"
I look forward to meeting Sulley at the rally at the end of October. We'll be bringing Terra (English Setter) and Tilda (Chihuahua mix) again.

Prior to, perhaps even parallel to, obsessing over vintage Airstream stuff, I am enjoying a 1959 Mercedes sedan. It is also my almost daily driver, chugging back and forth to the office. 44 miles a day.
Oh, the other thing is my motorcycle. If it wasn't for the Airstream and Mercedes hogging all my time, I would probably obsess over that. It's the only thing I own that actually gets professional care, simply because I don't have time to mess with it. Maybe that's a good thing.

This is going to be one of silliest entries here, but I recently have become obsessed about preventing my 28 ft Zip Dee awning from becoming damaged. During the movie at the Ft. Desoto rally, I excused myself to go roll my awning up because it was lightning. At home I put the Tropical Porch on it, and at every drop of rain or boom of thunder, I go outside and see if I want to tilt it, anchor it, or retract it. When it rains, I wonder if I have it tilted enough... or tilted in the proper direction for the angle of the rainfall... and I push up on the bottomside if I think water is pooling in the curvature.

I spent my last day off putting indoor-out carpet (fake astroturf) down under the awning so I wouldn't track so much stuff into the trailer...

My neighbors are beginning to think I'm eccentric, but I swear I haven't checked on it more than a dozen times today. (It rained all day.)

I have transferred most of my concentration to my new 77 Overlander. I also love anything that requires me to buy a new tool. I have transferred deck building, swim spa construction, crack house renovation obessions to the airstream. Reading is my lifelong reward for completed obsessions. I have only preserved one other hobby and that is cycling. Of course I have an all alluminum bicycle. Since I bought the dodge ram 2500 diesel to pull the airstream, I can no longer afford the gas to drive to work. First practical obsession for me!

Nikon cameras. Leica cameras. Contax cameras. Le Creuset pots.

Leica!?!?! I LOVE Leica's!

Powerstroke -

Dad had a Leica collection. All cameras that he or friends had and travelled with. The photos..... Bring tears to your eyes when you see them!

He still has trays and trays of slides from this and that... Still has a few cameras but they are in safety deposit boxes somewhere and don't see use of the light of day anymore. Sigh.

Ah well, better not to dwell. Nice to see a reference though! Any photos of the Leica's?

Ciao

Is that fanaticism? I thought that was being cautious!
