True, maintenance and repairs factor makes it never done, but I think there is a temporary moment, when upgrades/mods are complete, nothings broken, and there is no maintenance due for awhile...A rare moment lol.As long as you include maintenance and repair items, no Ranger will ever be completely finished. Because stuff corrodes, parts wear and seals fail.
I doubt that any hobby item is ever completely finished. Thats how hobbies are. I will always be fiddling with my Ranger. When something fails or gets broken, it might get modified during repair/replacement. I also like photography. I will always be wanting a different lens, flash or even newer camera body or other doo-dads to try using. The camera kit will never be finished. My dad enjoyed model trains. To the day he died, the train layout was ever evolving. Thats part of the fun of hobbies.
I guess it is a never ending process, hence the journey vs destination part. My photographer buddys are the same, ever evolving when it comes to their kit(s).
Perhaps that is the essence of hobbies, there's no destination, the journey is the whole point. Its funny were calling our trucks a hobby (as opposed to merely a method of transporting/travel)
Seems homes are like that too, the house is never finished, there's always something to upgrade, maintain or repair.
There are some hobbies I would like to "automate" and be done with, like my vegetable garden.
My old mans tool collection was ever evolving until his passing, which I kept most of, mostly for sentimentality (it wafts the essence of the old man's garage when I crack open his toolboxes) ...I wish he was around to see all the cordless technology nowadays (I have a Makita problem).
Thanks for sharing that bit.... if you don't mind telling, what happened to the trains after he passed?
