I was distracted from RC for about 6 years, just now getting back into it. I think it's good to enjoy other forms of recreation.

For now you are just taking care of some high priorities in your life, enjoy it all while you can.

so whats new? you started to build models after getting bored with something else. you just have to think model airplanes and pretty soon, your back on the building board. we all go thru the same-- but-- different phases. all I can say IS CHARGE into the next project. dick

Golf and fishing are pretty nice good-weather activities. Enjoy them while you can. The Cessna will still be there when the weather turns bad. You should go fly, though, just to keep your hand in.

You can always send me the plane. It will give me something to do now that I am "retarded", I mean Retired.

I lost interest in the hobby 30 years ago,But once this new hobby shop opened I saw a kit I made when I was 13 years old.I thought about how when I was young I was able to spend hours at a time relaxing and enjoying the hobby.Today life is to busy for most people to sit down and do a plane.But once you do take some time out you will see its good therapy.My self i can only sit for a 1/2 hour then my legs start aching but after a year now I almost have my plane compleate.It seems to me hobbys get more popular when times are bad and people dont go out much like in 1972. I often wish Hobbies of the past would make a comeback like slot car tracks and model building.Life needs to slow down a little.Thats why I find the slow poke plane atractive...lol

Sometimes I get tired of building myself. I take a break from it, get with the guys at the field and talk shop or watch a good aviation video or movie. After a few days or weeks I'm uaually back at it. Don't give up!!! You'll hate yourself later.
