    What do you buy when you're not shopping for more skis?
    As someone who grew up riding transition (read pipe, pool & park) during the Dog Town/Stecyk/Skateboarder era, my decks, trucks and wheels all got thrashed hard.
    A lot of these boards appear remarkably rash free...

    Yep. I don't have any of the original gear I rode in my tweens and early teens. I started skating again some and big time collecting skate gear around 2001. Most if it has seen limited park action but heavier use bombing hills around the neighborhood. The Lance Mountain mini with rails (Animal Chin and ST stickers) is what I use most on my mini ramp. It's wood and PVC so doesn't shred much off the rails or trucks. Let's see, main decks I had when actually skating daily was Banzai, Alva 77 (27" red), G&S 27" FibreFlex, Boulder 10" X32". I had a Santa Cruz Stinger as my college campus transportation and a Stuart Singer Variflex Freestyle. I wish I had kept all of it but most regret giving away the last two when I was moving to NC in 1999.

    All in all, stuff doesn't get shredded as much when you're not riding the same board every day all summer long. Having 30 different options on any given day.. and only skating half an hour once a week or so saves on that trashed gear. I don't have the stamina or balls to hit it hard all day long anymore. Also, I have re issues of several that I use instead of the OG stuff when possible. I still dig taking a legit OG board for a cruise around the block or a couple hits on the mini. Just real slow in the driveway LOL..

    Oh damn, speaking of skate gear and poser fodder, I've also got about 30 pairs of Vans and about 20 pairs of similar style Nikes and Adidias kicks.

    Watches. Not sure exactly why, but I've always love wearing different time pieces. None are particularly expensive but the highlight is a 60 year old Omega Seamaster. I've also got several Timex and Swiss Army Chronograph watches as well as a driving watch.

    I'd also like to have a car quiver one day but that's still a dream.

    I probably have 8 that run from:
    Big hiking fanny pack
    Bike/hiking camelback
    ski touring day pack
    Travel daypack/laptop bag
    38 L Big daypack/ultralight pack
    ~48 L weekend pack
    ~ 60 L light extended trip pack
    ~ 90L extended trip backpacking pack
    Count is 16 here.

    That's awesome. Now you need some ukulelis and Don Ho albums to go with them. Tiki torches are no longer as desirable.

    Like others I dig the skate gear. Dont have any myself except one board to fuck around on. First real deck was the Mike McGill with the snake coming through the skull. Skated hard back then and went through transition from old to new. Still remember those trucks that had the rollers(which would promptly get smashed and stop rolling). I used to break decks all the fucking time so I pretty much skated cheap blanks in widths that fit my big ass feet. Chicago skate bitd was pretty rad: marble everywhere, mobs of like 40 skate rats, and running from/beating down security guards with dobermans. In process of buying a house now and pretty sure a mini-ramp is getting built.

    Yup. 12 row (30" rows) chopping head. 30' wide head with heavy duty lawn mower type blades on each row unit to chop up the plant to help the residue break down faster.

    Nice. Since I posted that I've thought of at least a few more (I forgot the whole baby carrying category!) and I'm sure there are a few more I'm just forgetting that I don't use, but that's about my active quiver. I somehow can't resist a good deal on a pack when I stumble on it.

    Don't see a resonator? I've got a Wechter-Scheerhorn that would fit nicely.
