    That sure used to be my formula of adherence. But I've noted something since I hit my mid '50's...my desire for material things has started to wane. I find it shocking, given my lifelong love of "toys". But I am slowly moving toward the idea of downsizing a bit, spending more and more time fishing, hunting and camping and just using what I have. I don't know if it's unique to me, or it is something that happens on a frequent basis to men as they age. That being said, I just drove all the way to Bass Pro in Toledo after work to buy a power ice auger.

    However, if anyone wants to spend sixty-five grand on an absolutely mint, one owner, 1994 Land Rover Defender 90 with only 14K original miles (stage III Safari Guard suspension too)...I got one for ya.

    Same here. I've got 5 barns full of toys, projects, and stuff to support it all. It's somewhat organized but it's still difficult to find an unused flat spot or a new place to hang something. I'm in my late 60's now and realize life is too short to have so many 'things' that just don't fit my 'smell the roses' lifestyle. It seems that I get my endorphins in different ways nowadays.

    I dread getting rid of the collections, not because it's hard to part with, but because of the hassle of selling everything. It's better than leaving it to an heir to do tho. When I do sell things, some of the buyers remind me of myself in the past when I'd find that certain doodad that I just had to have...

    In spite of what I just said, the formula KJ7687 posted does still apply. Maybe it's because a motorcycle is such a good way to 'smell the roses' in life.
