1. Fitness- knew I'm out of shape but went with my wife to the gym to refresh her on what to do in her workouts since it's been 12 years since we used to work out. She showed interest in working out so we got her a membership she can always take a friend for free. I'm hoping her best friend will make the effort and they will go together and both get in shape together being good motivation and accountability for each other. Especially somce it will be no cost to her. I put I'm a few sets and found out just how out of shape I really am and it was very eye opening. Regardless of age or Fitness level we will all benefit physically and mentally from exercise so figured a Fitness thread might get others motivated and encouraged to start getting moving. I know I need to make my health and fitness a top priority but have not even put it on the list. That needs to change fast



2, a financial investing thread. Had some pms with a youngster asking about different forms of investing and how it works. I answered what i could But I'm very limited in my knowledge so figured some of those more knowledgeable then I am may find the time if they had the interest to share some info for those that many be interested in learning. Maybe basics with recommendations of reading materials for deeper looking into it.

Now for all those that want to get negative about me suggesting a post on finances I'm sure you won't be able to pass up the chance to take a shot at me keep it to yourself. This would be for those that are interested in learning how to better themselves and their financial future. If you don't keep your trap shut if you have the mental control ability to do so. Probably won't. But I'm sure you would run your mouths and get a thread shut down and a 13 year old asking questions would not get the info requested and why I would suggest someone else start the thread.

3. Ham radio. Something u want to learn about but haven't had time to dedicate to it.


4 anything anyone else is interested in learning about. With the knowledge base of the members here there is so much more that can be taught and learned than just trapping especially in the off season. So what are your other interest and hobbies you may be interested in sharing?

I think that would get too far away from trapping related and this place could turn out bad. But if we were going down that path, a forum with profanity would be a good one.

I think the fitness and diet / good eating threads would be useful.
We all love trapping - but we need to stay in decent shape to keep doing it.
We ain't getting any younger.

Not many younger folks have enough "spare" money to consider sinking any into the stock market or long-term investments.

The average age of Tman users puts most of us in retirement or close to retirement. Hopefully, the majority here already are or about to reap the benefits of proper financial planning over the past few decades.

If not, then it's too late for the older coons.

So, post something about trapping or other outdoor activities.


Thank God For Your Blessings!

Taking care of your edges. When NTA asked what topics people might like I mentioned that…..and fur grading by an actual grader.
