Seriously though, learning to be happy with what you've got and go out and shoot more photos is a constant struggle sometimes. Winter seems to be when I get GAS pains most.
It's been bad for me, too. Eyeballing all kinds of Large format stuff just because someone has offered to give me an enlarger capable of 4x5. I haven't even really gotten comfortable with my year old MF gear and have no working darkroom yet, just a pile of boxes. It's just dumb wasting time on that when there are so many other things that need doing or buying.
The best cure for G.A.S. I know is a letter from your bank manager with red numbers on it informing you that you are overdrawn.
Larryp... Did you ever think of asking the wife to get a 2nd job!
