The first impression was, yellow walls, ohhh, but then I read the text.
Looks nice.

Are you a ham operator as well?

Walls are really a neutral beige color..

No not a ham operator even tho that is a ham radio it an old Henry radio TEMPO 2020 SSB TRANSCEIVER, back in another time and place (house) back in the days when not many people were doing CB radio I got that radio Crystal to do the 27 mhz band by a ham in Pittsburgh Pa. and used to shoot skip side band. It still has all the ham band intact. When I moved into this home I never put up the PDL2 but put up a stick and use to listen in till a tree took that down. So the radio has just been setting there for years. Its just a great radio with tube final they just don't make them like that anymore.  ;)  I hope Uncle Charley isn't listening in.  :-)

And the joystick is for flying a drone into the eye of a hurricane!  Arm-chair hurricane hunting, I love it! :grin:

Can't see the rudder pedals there hidden by the chair. Those two things are for getting away from the tornadoes that come this way..

That what I raced N2003 many year of good times Started out on a system called Hawaii that was done using the phone modem you had to call long distance to Boston, Mass and you raced late at night so the phone bill were lower it was like $6 and hour. Then it progress to the net and it mostly all fell apart when EA Sports got a hold of the simulator and tied up the rights from Nascar.
I've done some ARCA and Iracing wanted me to do beta testing and they still send me email to join but I keep staying away. I'm still a member of flashpointracing but haven't raced there in a while.
