RC Plane (never flown), Mountain bike, Seadoo, Miata, Never ending home reno's

I'm really tempted to get a quad but when would I use it? Same with a bike, that and everyone (including my wife and bike riding father) saying you'll kill yourself, non-stop. They just see what I do with the Seadoo and picture me jumping a major highway at 999999kph (maybe faster) then landing in an endo and stopping safely then getting hit by random suv lady.

Seadoo's are fun and cheap if you can get to water, they don't like salt water though.

An M4 and a grenade launcher at the moment.

I had a kickass RC car. I think "HP4" was in the name somewhere. It was a touring car with a JGTC MR-S body. I think if I got another RC car it'd be a buggy/stadium truck, because it'd be nice to not have to worry about what surface you have to play with.

Miata too, of course.

That being said, I'm into mountain biking, BMX, and trials. I play a bit of guitar and fly fish. That and the miata is about all i can afford while I'm in college :P

I once had an arsenal but then I bought a miata... strange how that happens. That and 3 girls under 7 tend to soak up the money - I'm in trouble in 5 years.
3 girls under 7? sell the miata, your gonna need that arsenal in 5 years.

toys i could make with way too much time on my hands: turbo tachometer - just cause. millisecond accurate cruise control megasquirt hack to win silverstate classic.

toys purchased: tesla & one of these: 2004 Monaco Knight 38PDQ Diesel Pusher - $89995 (gilroy)

You will never drive anything that is more frantic than this is.

Thats the truth.
My blueprinted KT100 was supposed to be ~25hp, and it damn quick. Id love to feel that power with a couple gears.

Current toys are the miata (neglected this year), outback (been receiving most attention), and our '98 seadoo challenger 1800 (PITA 2stroke carb engines). It's a 18' jetboat that fits 7 people officially, can be towed by my subaru, and fits in my garage with 2 inches to spare. Great fun around these parts, there's so many places to go in the bay here in NJ.

There's the usual mtn bikes and paintball gear. I have a nice push lawnmower. Oh I have this too, made in the early '90s. ******'s quick and does decent burnouts.
