I'm with Hotshot [Dave] The price comes off on the way home. Last year was a big spend year (+3000). This year I'm broke and beaten I'm sure glad a lot of the spend last year was on Scratchbuilding material!

I just got back into MRR Last fall...
I have more than I care to let on invested! (In case the other half sees this!) But 1500-2000 for rolling stock, kits & details etc. is about it for me.

For the number of hours I spend modeling, it is still cheap entertainment, a lot less then going to the movies. With the price of everything going up, I can see that I will be removing some of my other 'entainment activities', so my modeling dollar is going to now go further as I will be starting to build some of those kits on the shelf due to the additional time available.

Life is to short to build all of the models I want to.

A couple of new engines, a few craftsman kits, rolling stock you can not live with out, some track and dues. It is 1000 to 2500 easy.

I hope that I have not spent enough for this to happen to me.

Pat,
Believe it or not but I would love to live in a shack like that right in the mountains of Alaska.
The only requirement would be that I had internet service so that I could stay in touch with the rest of the world.

I'm not including books or camera gear in 'hobby spending,,' only -model- railroading stuff. Otherwise I'd be in the next higher bracket

Yeah.... the shack, Bags... but what about the current inhabitant?



Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm a busy man. I have a railroad to run.

No to the current inhabitant and to any others who might also be available.
I just would like to try being a hermit living alone with my trusty dog in the woods once in my lifetime.

Smart man!
Fluffy is her name, spending is her game. I can not believe I got her to even get into that shack!
The building is around 100 yards from the WP&Y RR station in Carcross. Best train ride of my life.
Let me know if you need any pics from Alaska, I have a bunch.

I'm kind of guessing around 2 grand or a little more. I probably don't want to know, but it all goes to a good cause...me.

Yes Mike I would love to be the modern Alaskan version of Natty Bumppo.[:-bigeyes]

Tim,
You are correct the first thing I would do is paint my abode blue.

Larry,
While your picture is from the area referred to as Southeast Alaska by the sourdoughs in Southcentral Alaska, I would like to be up Mt Denali way.
I would love to look at any pictures you might have.
I model Alaska and am always looking for new ideas.
You can e-mail them to me at
Bbags23@aol.com
and thanks for the offer.
