While I am not exactly a beginner, there is something I (and others I am sure) would like to know:
What is it that all of you do that you are able to afford the amount of equipment you have?
How do/did you guys do it? How can you afford to make that kind of investment?
Very good question.
1.) No RV
2.) No Boat of any kind
3.) Almost no other expensive hobbies, ie. wood shop, Golf etc.
4.) Less house than I might have been able to afford
5.) No Cabin on the lake (miss this one)
6.) Minimal skiing in the winter. (hmm, might change this one)
7.) Herb has setup a virtual "loan" system. If you buy good used equipment, you can get back most of the original investment when you sell it, so unless it's the bottom end Chinese stuff, or it gets broken, there is only a hole in your pocket while you physically own the eqp. You can generally come out fairly even.
8.) Kids are still in grade school
