Same here. mate. In my case I have to have a fighting chance when I'm mentoring, so it pays to keep a collection of the stuff I've encountered over the years. TBH I literally have hundreds of manuals. It's surprising how often I have to go back to stuff I thought I'd left behind decades ago!

I actually enjoy reading manuals more than magazines or books!

I erm... even have manuals of things I haven't bought or are not interested in anymore. Or things I gave away/sold years ago.

I like manuals too, after I’ve gotten as far as I can by feel with a piece of gear. Sometimes I’ll sell a piece of gear. I’ll still have the manual, and, the original box it came in. How sad is that? Although I do take good care of my gear. I like clean gear. It almost feels new.

That’s a sure fire way to get soggy toast.
