One thing I'll comment upon is that it is probably safe for most of us to never say "never".
I can remember being at a NAHRA test in Northern Vermont (or maybe we were in Canada). The area was called "Derby Line" as I recall. One of the judges was named Daniel, which the Quebecers pronounce like "Danielle". I recall Paul Stuart translating what I said in English, to French for Daniel to understand. I said "I'm not a Field Trialer and I'll never be one."
It turned out a couple decades later that I was wrong.
We are allowed to change our minds, change our focus, etc.
I'd suggest that many of us keep an open mind. Stuff the "other guys" do that seems like it's not for us, may turn out to be a whole lot of fun if we give it a try.
