I hear ya. As we speak I've narrowed down my vintage guitar collection from over 50 to less than half that. Even still... I have over $500,000.00 worth of guitars. (That is not
a misprint). Kinda silly as my kids will probably sell most of 'em someday but been a professional player all my life and I won't part with 'em.
(BTW) I have a great fiddle story to tell you but will send you a PM. Don't want to bore folks here with that!
Guns are my other passion. Have too many of those too. So I've spent my money on things I love. A lifetime of collecting. Sounds like a dream come true to me.
Black Powder: Not because it is easy, but because it is hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win...
