I came to the hobby in May of 2015 at the young age of 61.
Originally it was to be an outlet to pass time while I was recovering from knee replacement. Of course once I found how vast and varied the field is, I was hooked on going further.

I am now running an FT-450D for HF 40m > 6m using a homebrew Carolina Windom that is doing the job of keeping me busy while recovering from my second knee replacement

The Humble Shack; It dosen't have to be extravagant to be fun.
I seldom run more than 70 watts on HF or 90 watts on 6 meters and have reached into central Europe.

This was the first Homebrew OCFD worked but needed work for 40 meter.

Re-did the whole thing from scratch this time with known ferrite toroid values pair of FT-114 43 mix as a 4:1 current balun in a better weatherproof  housing. 
The run is from a 20' mast attached to my shed for the short leg to 20' up a tree for the long leg in  the background behind me. Just above  the edge of the roof is a 3' section of cable with ferrite toroids for RF cancelation making it a Carolina Window I guess.

 

The QSL card not fancy but it tells the story
