OK, I didn't know if it was public knowledge and didn't want to guess.
Yes, as much of a mobile money drain as a boat is, at least it doesn't eat or have to get vet treatments. Every kind of work has its overhead. Our overhead is the cost of trying to maintain current knowledge. The drummer must have a trailer to carry his gear, we must have a library of software manuals and style guides. At least we don't usually trip over the style guides.

Peter has posted more than once in the past about his pony rides.
$1000 in a weekend sounds pretty good, but like bands, DJs, etc., there's a fairly sizable investment. A friend who's into horses says they're an even bigger money suck than a boat.
