I tend to over do most things I get into, but then again like most people I tend to pick and focus on one or two things and make them my main hobbies. When I was into home theater i spent and spent on speakers, upgrading this and that etc. Golf...to much on gear not enough on leasons.
Currently for me its snowboarding. I do it a lot (averaging 2-3 days per week), and I seem to keeping wanting to acquire more gear, and constantly hunt for the best i can find. in some areas i think I have gone over board i.e. i now have 4 pairs of pants less then 1 season old. Really there is not use for 4 pairs of pants...when would I ever use then?
2 is enough IMO, but im curious to know what you have and if you think im over board.
Here is what I have accumulated in the last year:
1 pair googles with 4 lenses (sunny day x2 , overcast, clear for night boarding)
4 pairs of pants (2 AK, and 2 Oakley)
2 snowboards, and im dying to upgrade already to the best I can find for a 3rd.
2 pairs of gloves (one for cold days, 1 for warm days)
2 pairs of boots (granted one was for learning and my current pair are intermediate)
6 Mid layer shirts (overboard)
4 baselayer shirts
My problem is as soon as next season comes out and I see new stuff ill want to replace. In my deffense when you first start something you end up buying and deciding what you do and dont like.
Is this normal, or do you buy only what you need and make the stuff last as long as possible?
