backpacking equipment

there is ALWAYS a better option, a better solution - a more expensive solution.

You can get a very nice 2lb tent for $200, cut that down to 1lb and you're looking at $800. The same conversation can be had for every damn thing I bring with me.

Double-stuf (actually, any) Oreos. My kryptonite.

Can't have them in the house, can't go near them in the store.

I am weak.

So many things. Interesting ground cover plants. SuperHot pepper seeds. Really pretty quick dry clothes that go with one of my kayaks. Horse toys. Unusual potato chips or frozen fries. Nice looking vegetables that I don’t grow at a farmers' market. I mean, I do have restraint, but I have to work at talking myself out of whatever it is.

Tools. I have the basics but need to watch myself. There's always that one gizmo that you really need.

Tools-as it just might come in handy some day. LOL! Plants- I really can't (or shouldn't) squeeze any more plants into my small perennial gardens.

This week, 3D printer parts.

Started with a new budget 3D printer. Grabbed a glass bed and magnetic cover. Then adhesive. Then pro-adhesive.

Built a roller for the filament and needed bearings, which came in a multi-pack, so I printed some fidget spinners to blow through the bearings, and then everyone wanted spinners so I needed more bearings.

Printing so much was driving me nuts with manual-leveling, so I got an auto-level kit and pro-springs and colored aluminum knobs to go with the new springs even though the auto-leveler makes them redundant.

Now, I'm eyeing a laser-etching kit and a Raspberry Pi controller.

You should quit the small stuff, and just get the plasma cutter and start selling signs.

. . . got a MacBook Pro intel version last year, because, well you know I needed it. M1 Air looks so nice. Wait, a 14-inch Pro coming soon? Naw, I don't need it. Maybe I could get good value for my current Pro. How do I explain it to my wife? Maybe get her a new iMac. Wait, I can resist. I will change . . .

As a few others here, plants.

But if we weren't talking "buy", rather "have", then it'd be this:

Are you including your bank account in that statement? big grin smiley

For me, it’s soda. I can take fairly long hiatuses, but that Devil juice, it be callin’ me back sooner or later.

I think I may have gotten the better of Ol’ Squirt now though with the discovery of the holy tincture called Zevia Cola. Zero sugar, zero calories, zero artificial sweeteners or flavoring. A ton of flavors, muy delicioso, not at all bad in the pocketbook.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

I'm in an apartment. I can't really do more than PLA printing without killing myself on the fumes.

...New calipers came today. Little rubber balls for a silencing-hack tomorrow. 90-degree micro USB cable for controlling it from my Mac coming Tuesday. (Gonna have to print a plate to hide the USB cable.)

Now, when you can MAKE your own stuff, it becomes VERY addictive. My partner's oldest son does Warhammer 40K. He now prints some of his own stuff, and makes custom figures.
