I will turn 56 in a few months, been collecting since I was 11. Yes, for you smarta**'s out there, I would ride my dinosaur and pick up items along the trail.

Now if you all respected your "elders", you would send items to us old farts and we could enjoy the hobby more! grin

Honestly, I'm glad that there are new generations out there picking the countryside clean, LOL.

I turned 35 on Monday and have been collecting for a few years. Started with just the one pump and it turned into 25 pumps now im down to I think 8 or so pumps. I spend more time collecting globes and shakers now.

I'm 56. I have been doing this for 20 years. Chadrock is my son and he's 30 and been involved first with me and now on his own. We know every pothole in every gravel road I'll bet in a 200 mile radius of my house. We have "picked" as far West as Colo. and east to Penn. over the years and have enjoyed every minute of it.

I'm 36 and I have been collecting antiques since high school and gas stuff for 12 years. I feel like a kid at the Gas Bashes. I rarely see anyone younger, other than my kids when I take them.

44 in 2 weeks and been collecting for most of the last 10 years. As the years scream by, this affliction only gets more deeply seeded. I'll die bringing this stuff home.
