I will throw a curve ball to guys. I used to collect and sell pachislo and pachinko machines.

Pachislo is a Japanese version of the American slot machines. and Pachinko is Japan's version of American pinball machines.

On December 11, 2007 I got a knock on my door from the Indiana gaming commision. It seems that back in July they changed the law that anything that LOOKS like a US slot machine is illegal. So to say the least I was pretty upset due to having quite a bit of money wrapped into the pachislo machines. Especially My Spin Luck and Harley Davidson which those two machines are a limited edition and if you have the proper feedback on ebay, fetch a pretty good dollar amount.

I got to keep my pachinko machines but have kinda lost interest in them. after you play them for about 3-4hours a day and for about 14 days straight then they are rather boring due to seeing everything it has to offer. Kinda like playing a broken record.



So with that said, I had more time on my hands to spend with my wife and kids which drove my wife to the point that she said that I either get a new hobby to get out of her hair or else. So I got back into R/C racing. then she slaps this budget thing on me and I am still driving her crazy...

But I will soon be out in full force, Got quite a few items I have ran across while cleaning out my so called shop. What she doesn't know won't get me killed.

2nd hobby: Robotics (at school, but once I get the Vex kit or the Innovation First controller, then I will be messing around at home)
3rd hobby: Computers (building and messing around, trying to learn VB or C)
4th hobby: Bikes (Me and my friends just start riding, all the way into neighboring towns, to the point we are lost, then try to get back home, we normally put on 10-15 miles per ride(We fins some cool lots sometimes that are entire block lengths wide and long sometimes and have races))

But probally the most important thing to me right now though is Robotics though. I am part of my schools FIRST team, and I am driving, and part of the design and build team, and I have to be there Monday-thursday (6-10) and Saturdays (10-3) so RC racing has been benched for a little(2 months). I could race on Sundays, but I am normally to busy with HW.

not in any order.. but i r/c, ride quads, golf, build little plastic models and race lawnmowers and mudbog when i can.. thats pretty much my life in a nutshell. i have old 1986 suzukiLT250EF quad.. its the last year they made them without rear suspension.. rode the shit out of it until i drowned it in a truck mudbog in 06 then it siezed up, which is how it sits right now, but once i have paid about 2 years off on my truck im gonna go in and get another loan and buy a yamaha grizzly 660 or 700.
