    What else do you collect? (non-bike related)

    I've always been a collector. When I was a kid it was Hot Wheels, rocks, bottle caps, stuff I found.

    As I got older I really got into old things. I was really into glass and bottles for a while. Living in S Jersey, we were able to dig for old bottles in the woods near old homes, river banks ect.... That also lead to collecting Native American artifacts. I have all sorts of tools, points, shards of pottery ect from NJ, FL, CO and UT. I still always look whenever I'm riding or on the beach. Not as easy in Florida, but will usually bring rocks and other stuff back from Colorado.

    I also collect vintage skateboards from the 80's mostly. Been at that for a few years. Here are some pictures of my hoard...don't have any bottle pictures on this computer

    Powell Peralta boards

    Artifacts; tools, hammer stones, shaft straightener, moccasin last (to form moccasins), scrapers, arrow heads, bison teeth from an old kill site, pottery shards ect...

    I had quite a collection of "back books", and I had a nice collection of notches in my old bedpost before my wife made me throw it away.

    These days, I collect memories. Nothing more valuable than those.

    On the subject of skateboards, I once had a Bevel with Indy trucks and I can't remember what wheels...

    Hmm, I figured you'd be collecting lots of girly clothing considering that thread Tone's started a few weeks back....

    Nice collection! All I've been able to find is a blank deck plastered with Powell/Bones stickers at a garage sale.

    What else do you collect? (non-bike related)

    Beer. But I never seem to be able to collect more than twelve at a time.
    And I always wake up in the morning to find the bottles empty.
    Not sure what's going on there.

    Books. Its worked out well the last few years, my youngest likes the same kinda books so i have a decent selection for her to choose from when she wants something to read.

    For the last 24 years I've been collecting my boogers in a ball on my workdesk.
    It's about the size of a basketball now.

    I don't collect anything. I guess I would be the opposite of a hoarder.

    My ex-wife used to collect dogs... Every time I went away on tour she'd get another one... ended up with 4 Ridgebacks, 2 German Shepherds, 2 Dachsunds and an ex-wife...

    Now it seems all I collect are used MTB tires, I just can't seem to throw them away...
    It's all Here. Now.
