I seem to have an ingrained trait to turn any hobby I involve myself in into a life style.
I did it with fishing many, many years ago. I ate, drank and breathed fishing. After a time I got burned out on it and now I do it very seldom.
I tried very, very hard to turn my wood-working hobby into a profession. Came close too. But it seemed that for every dollar I spent to get the equipment I needed to increase production/profits i needed to spent a couple more to accommodate the new addition. Got burned out. But I do hope to return to it in my "golden years".
Then I did it with hunting. Ate, drank and breathed it too. And, again, I got burned out.
Same thing with muzzle loading.
Then I started to take the same, old, worn out road with my beer. Came close to getting burned out. But I guess I just love beer too much to give it up. I've cut myself back from brewing/bottling two gallons every other week to brewing/bottling a three gallon batch every three weeks. And then that's only during the non-summer months of the year.
