    my friends got into the gas RC off road trucks. he had alot of property so he made tracks out there for them. that got expensive for certain things. also if u have property the 50cc dirtbikes are really fun. you can buy the bigger shocks and raise the handle bars and put a bigger engine in it if you want so adults can ride them. we were all between 18 and 21 riding thoes things on a short track we made its a blast. but expensive

    The paintball gun is the cheap part, its the $50 in balls every time you go out that gets you.

    Hockey has turned out to be my most expensive hobby. $220 every 11 weeks league fees, plus $700 for a new helmet after my concussion, my skates were $350, $140 in sticks so far... and then there is the $30,000 in medical bills from said concussion. ;D

    Hmm..model ralroading
    Photography
    Bicyling(can get expensive)
    ..those are the main ones.

    I had an HO scale train layout about 2 years ago. it was 2 tables together (4X5 foot and an 8 X 3 foot table). I have about 8(NKP, Sanfa Fe, BNSF, CSX) engines from all time periods. Mostly newer diesel engines. But a few are older. I also have an electric cable car and an old coal tender/locomotive. It is from the NKP railroad, where my great-grandfather used to work. I have probably 25 train cars of different kinds...probably 18 different buildings. I have some O scale stuff too.

    I still have everything, but I don't have the space for it right now. I may set it up again at a later date.
