    Those are not my tanks...but thats what I'm aiming for. I have all the equipment ready. It's VERY challenging..but rewarding as well.

    Running websites and playing with R/C's are my hobbies. However, I'd love to have a salt water tank like that - they are just amazing and beautiful as well!

    Indeed, I had a 125gallon fish predetor salt water tank a few years ago..man I loved it. Now I'm tring for the more difficult reef. But if it works out it will be the focal point when someone walk into my living room.

    I fish.
    Traveled the world and fish every chance I get. I have a small bass boat and try to get out at least once a week or more in the summer. Several of my buddies have commercial fishing boats so I get to go out on the big water whenever I feel the need. Love tuna fishing but my all time favorite is Rooster Fish on light tackle.

    I have had a lot of deck time on an 18' BW. Used to think nothing of going 50 miles out chasing tuna. Brings back memories from several years ago. This is after a 30 minute boil of footballs.

    Right now, i have a 96 Caprice, its an old cop car. Lt1 auto, fast 4 door car i have ever driven (under 50k lol), i have 4 of them i have bought over the last couple years, this one i am the second owner. Just needed some rust work, and i took the body off the frame.
    And my other one is a 77 Bandit Trans Am i have had since highschool. It needs full restore, that is a SLOW process.

    My other hobbies are my dirt toys YZ250,Sandrail,sled SRX 700,my truck(fullsize)and of course my RCs. And I do alot of 2 stroke rebuilds for bikes,sleds,quads,ect.
    I love to take the family up north camping to play in the dirt.My 2 boys also have bikes XR80 and YZ125.
    I guess the dirt runs in my blood stream.
    I also enjoy fishing when I get the time.Any lake or river any kind of fishing is good fun for me.


    Edit- I know the sled is not a dirt toy but its part of the thing with motor hobbie lol.
