You could get yourself an old classic motorhome, then you could bring tools and wrench to your hearts content keeping it going.. 😃

Cheers Richard

Another rock collector! Between the heavy tools & rocks, weight is always a factor. Great way to stay active and outdoors. Would never work for a full timer.

Yep, another rock collector here. We do week long prospecting trips in the desert and really have to be careful of the weight. I try and keep the specimens confined to 5 gallon buckets so i can monitor the weight. Generally about 50-75lbs per bucket. Last trip was 6 buckets plus the specimens to big to fit in the buckets. Definitely need a heavy duty truck!

Hi

There are some famous stories of old time "collectors". They would head out and pick stuff up. The support crew would tag along about a day behind with a couple of large trucks to transport all of the great finds.

Yep. Stuff like that happens. Two years ago we found an amazing lode of unusual serpentine in No. Calif. Came back four weeks later with a rented large RYDER to take a heavy load home (Yes, I secured permission.)

Hi

Now *that's* dedication to a hobby !!

I haven't done that sort of thing for a load hobby "stuff" for over 10 years. Before that I used to do it pretty often.

Mandolin comes along on all trips. Fly fishing gear and tying kit as well if there is a hope of using it. DW is into photography.

Main hobbies that I take along include my five string banjo (clawhammer pickin') hand held gps for geocaching, mountain bikes, and of course home-brewed beer!

Then too, the AS is a hobby in and of itself and I always have a backlog of maintenance chores to to. We can't keep the trailer at home where we live,c and so when we go on our annual snowbird trip, that is a convenient opportunity for me to keep it in good shape - SWMBO decrees however that I can spend no more than a few hours so engaged on any day, then I have to take her someplace interesting!

For me the main hobbies in this case are favourite music, books and drawing I'm, not a professionl artist, however I like during some stops on the road to have a rest, just sit a bit, relaz and make some sketches with places where we stopped
One of my friends usually takes also a guitar with him, in companies he rather often playes music, especially during our evening relax
