I have read the threads of both HiHoAgRV and beckybillrae. Those 10k investments are valuing your labor at $0 right? How many hours.....?

You both impress the heck out of me with your skills, persistence, and plain old never say die attitude! I'm inspired! (But I bought a ready to camp 22 year old!)

Well, thanks for the compliment. But I never keep track of my hours while doing my hobby. My sister quilts and knits. If she kept track of her hours and how much her quilts were worth for $25/hour, they'd be priceless! If I kept track of my hours at shop rates ($125/hour here) my little Bambi II would have at least $100,000 in it!!! It has taken me 2 years of putzing to do the Bambi II. Loved it all! (ok, maybe not the belly pan!)

Keeping track of your hours on any project can lead to depression and suicidal thoughts. It must be avoided. It is an extreme side effect of aluminitus, or, in my case, house remodeling. Actually I don't think in hours, it takes years.

I can't help but remember a story my late father told me . . .

It was back in the late 1920's and a buddy of one of his friends had purchased a used car (this was back in Montreal, Quebec). The friend and his buddy worked in the downtown area part way up Beaver Hall Hill. The buddy had parked his car on the hill and somehow the parking brake didn't hold and the car rolled down the hill, hitting a telephone pole. His buddy started to painstakingly repair the front of the car - the radiators in those days were made of brass and the buddy was carefully and painstakingly knocking the dents out of each cell. He had spent weeks working on it, and as he neared completion, the cell he was working on cracked open negating all the weeks of work he had done. The buddy flipped out completely and took an axe to the car and totaled it.
