I must be listed among the lucky ones!
Been married since May 1987, and in Christmas 1987 she bought me my first ever rc car: a Marui Toyota LC!
Since then, we got a daughter (now 20), and later a son, now 15, who is actively racing/bashing with his very own rc cars, trucks, buggies, you name it, alongside me, mainly in the Greek RCGT 17.5T class and 4wd mod buggy!
Two years ago, in August 2009, she let us boyz buy a (very expensive, indeed, as you all know!) HPI Baja!
In the summer of 2010, she managed to make family economic arrangements so that we can afford my trip to go alone and race at the 2010 RC Bike Worlds in France. I rode my real '98 BMW R1100GS motorcycle there, all the way from Greece! Oh yes, she supports that too: Real bikes! We got two of them! (A '01 KTM200 enduro, too).
This last Christmas she bought me my latest (11th, to be exact!) rc bike: A Thunder Tiger SB-5! Not to mention the 20some cars lying on our home shelves...
Oh, and she already does her financial magic, as we speak, so, most probably, we can afford me to attend the 2011 RC Bike Worlds in Switzerland with the new "toy"!
So, definitely, I am among the luckiest guys out there!
