The nice thing about G is you can pretty much throw the track down on the ground, and the trains will run. Maybe next Spring you can put your stuff up in the backyard...

OK, OK, I'm kidding! I collect old tube radios, and although I have something like 150 or so here at home, I don't put any of them in the trailer, since they're mostly to look at or tinker with, and not to drag all over the country.
Truly you need a "real hobby"

Note to myself. Ten years ago would have been 2005. Time for me to take that math refresher I've been putting off.

Yes, it appeals to the grown ups more than the kids.

Boxed up since 95 - scandalous!!!

I know. The model railroad elders would not take kindly to my neglectful ways.

I used to set them up in our garden are around the pool when the kids were small. Now I look at the boxes every time we go in and out of the garage. These days I have two vintage trailers occupying my hobby time and so the trains sit there waiting until motivating force moves me to unwrap them.

Sorry we missed you guys after the 4CU rally!

Jim, Rod:

It was great meeting you (finally) at the 4CU Pirate rally in AZ... I've taken a recent assignment overseas and will be missing out on AS fun over the next year or so.

Margaret and I intended on getting together before I left but time got out of control...

Here's some shots of the NM Unit rally at White Sands last March. There were about 10 rigs and we had a great time.

Looking forward to linking up when we get back and cooking up some good chow!

Take care,

That's what we've been doing on this rainy day.
Rod and I have flown with the San Diego club at Mission Bay several times. We also know some of the members there.

I have recently taught myself to tat (lacemaking with a shuttle). It's the perfect 'streaming hobby. Takes up very little room and is inexpensive. All you need is a ball of thread and a shuttle or two. I'm also an avid reader but tatting is a nice alternative.

We also keep a running game of gin that's a lot of fun and keeps our competitive spirits sharp!

Not really a hobby as much as a passion... Astronomy, either with binoculars or a telescope. We always keep a bunch of binos in the trailer (everything from 7x35 up to 20x80). I find that short tube 80mm refractors on simple alt/az mounts are great for camping. When we go the the TAC Bash later this month, I plan to bring a 4" f/11 refractor on a German equatorial mount as well as the 80mm f/6.

I know what you mean about the 2-wheel hobby; here's a couple of mine - almost an obsession at times (much like being an AirStreamer!):

As well as knitting and reading, I enjoy history and genealogy. As long as I can get on the internet, I can continue to be a detective for my family history as it connected to world history. Love it especially when I can go see many of the locations myself!

I have been known to drag my 10" Dob along to rallies in the past, and have even taken the trailer to a star party a few years ago (talk about deluxe accommodations).
