    Just tell me one thing, why does a woman need 15 pairs of shoes? [/QUOTE]

    Count your self lucky, my wife has over 70 yes 70 pairs in their boxes in the closet. But, she doesn't say anything to me when I buy a camera.

    Tell Graham that I have the bank account open
    The best way to combat gas is not having budget, none. A car without fuel doesn't run, unless you're going down to a valley.

    A friend of mine at work likes old cars. His wife told him he can't have any more. So he asked if I had any spare room in my garage.

    Idiot me! I forgot...
    Tell Graham that if he needs a new storage for his cameras, he can send me some. I promise good use on all kinds of Rangefinders, hasselblads, rolleis, mamiya RB & RZ.

    :rolleyes:

    I actually thought I had GAS on the run for a while. I hadn't bought any gear for about 6 mos or so. Last weekend I bought a Zorki 4 at the Hymers Fall Fair. Sonnar copy jupiter 8 lens, and all the shutter speeds work. $25. Just one drink......

    Attending a support meeting on Apug for photographers with GAS while also surfing for gear on ebay is like going to an AA meeting at happy hour at a bar attached to a discount liquor store.

    Hey, when my GAS becomes unmanageable, I'll move on to step 2! Until then, I will quietly surf ebay at the end of a long day, Jameson's in hand. Ah, look - a Nikon FG and 50mm in great shape for $67 BIN. Click.

    Running a set of negs from a new (to me) camera is not unlike the feeling you get watching an image appear in the tray for the first time. Graham

    Keeping track of how much money you have spent in total so far will help.
