Fiddle around with the boat, ratio of fiddling to driving the blooming thing is probably 10:1

Everyone is different I guess.. but I found that expensive toys meant little to me ?

I much prefer living a stress free life.. doing what I love doing ..which is exploring the countryside and living close to nature. It doesn’t cost me much to clamber around the hills ..discovering new places that I never knew about .. then researching the history of such places.



When on my safaris, I keep costs low by living out the car .. my wants are minimum .. and I waste very little.



Although I am not quite 60 years of age .. I chose to give up the rat race .. and I have never felt so fit and healthy.. and perfectly happy too. I can clamber the cliffs as fast as people half my age.






Normally I explore with my SIB during the summer months..



And supplement my diet with fish I catch ..



While staying in a tent .. sometimes I even enjoy the company of others too



But with such a poor summer this year..I have kept to the hills rather than the coast .. and it is nice to see them with some green for a change.



Sometimes I will supplement my savings by painting what I see and then sell the picture to people who enjoy such materialistic things. I have had a pound once or twice for one or two of my photographs too.



And I guess ..sometimes ... like everyone else .. I get a little bored. Some may say ... Im wasting my life away ..and perhaps I am ?

I do know all is not perfect in my world .. in fact, I recently had a fall into a deep gully... and have spent the last week in the house nursing a damaged knee. But next week..I will be off again..and who knows..if the weather improves.. I may go by SIB this time...

But ... until then.. I wonder what I can do ?

Hey..I know.. I can post some of my drivel on Ribnet

Wish I had a hobby or two

Work, Farm, house work, keep the childern alive and sleep. Sometimes I also go free diving

The most money hungeryof them all is the childern. They are akin to a large sunseeker I believe

Lately, I've gotten back into throwing money at paper from varying distances.

If the images end up in the same order as I attached them, descriptions follow (if not, you'll have to guess):

25 yds, approx 50 rds of .22, pistol, offhand, mix of slow and timed fire.

25 yds, approx 40 rds of 32 S&W Long, offhand, mix of slow and timed fire

Bunch of .308, benched, 100 yds (white square is 1"), 3 shot groups
