    hunting, fishing, woodworking, cb radios....yes cb radios, in the age of cell phones, digital this and digital that, i still use cb radios and kickers. But hey, I'm a truck driver so I dabble in cb's. And if anyone is curious my main radio is a Galaxy 88, tuned and peaked of course, about 40 watts barefooted. Road King 56 microphone, 300 watt Silver Eagle 2 pill kicker, and a Wilson 2000 anttenna. Grab the anttenna shaft and my mirror bracket at the same time and it will burn you like a blow torch when it's keyed. Pretty soon my main hobby is going to be changing diapers though...... :rolleyes:

    Guitars, amps and guitar effects processors. For example, it was just on Monday that I paid $1,700 for a new Peavey Wolfgang Special Custom Deluxe electric guitar. The other 11 guitars I currently own were getting lonely.

    I promised my wife that I would not own more than a dozen guitars. I had to sell one guitar, that I barely touched, in order to get this new one.
