40 year old father of 3

Too many hobbies to count them all, but they include:

 

artist

70's-80's audio, computers, video game systems

auto and motorcycle restoration and customization

custom paint and airbrush

hand tooled leather

woodcraft

antique tool restoration

etc, etc, etc.

 

Looking forward to browsing the forum and getting to know folks.

 

Current collection of Boomboxes includes a mid 80's Midland (can't remember model# off hand) and a 1983 Toshiba RT-80S. I'm trying to slowly refurbish the RT-80S, and also trying to video document the process. I'm hoping to fire up a YouTube channel aptly named "RertroTech" within the next month or so to showcase cool obsolete tech, refurbishments, and thrifting adventures. Though admittedly, videography is not a strong suit of mine at the moment, so I'm learning as I go. I'll share a link when I get this video uploaded.

Welcome aboard! I think we all have common shared interests and trying to relive our youth. I always wanted a Triumph TR6 (Car) and finally got and restored one. Had it for 7 years and sold it to fund the house projects. My wife prefers I stick with cheaper hobbies! Enjoy!
