    Gas for a MTB? Sounds like you were cheating with a moped mate

    lol, driving all over the country to races and shuttling to the top of the hill constantly-the flights overseas were the real budget killer.

    Yeah, i'm a bit of a gear nut, i like nice toys!
    My problem is that i have about 6 different hobbies and all of them have nice shiny toys that go with them so my toy fund and my time get spread pretty thin!

    There's my problem too! About to go halves in a whitebait net and buy a new flounder net too...
    No wonder the dogs, boat, surfcaster and rifles look at me sideways. Not as sideways as the mrs does though.
    Oh well, looking forward to Mondays dive.

    Cost a bit to set up, scope worth more than rifle, took me a few years to work that out.,good boots, range finder, bino,s and good clothing all slowly purchased over a few years.
    Replaced day bag otherday with cheap on special from hunting n fishing, leaks,zips buggered after 3 days.
    Replaced gaiters with stoney creek pair and they ripped first trip.
    Dog was a good buy proving his worth and gives me someone to talk to in the bush and down in the shed.
    Stopped buying stuff on impulse now as have worked out what works and whats really needed.

    Would like a helicopter next and my own hunting block but wife just rolls her eyes and tells me to carry on vacuming the lounge.
    Love walking my gun

    Is this you @oneshot? If so it looks like you might spend a bit more than a 303 and a swannie.

    Good bum bag, that made life easier, range finder last yr, binos are Jason's from The 80s auto focus, fieldays I bought an oil skin cape, awesome for the pissing round I do and couple of years ago $200 on some heavily discounted boots, they make a diff, need to sort some descend pants, jeans get cold, and cheap short sleeve fleece tops @ 3 for $50 in Taupo. Oh shooting sticks really handy and a good knife.
