Me and logistics: A love story looking for a plot

Please help me create a hobby or semi-constructive pastime out of my fascination with supply chains, logistics, and shipping. Let me explain.

I love to watch TV and read about what goes on behind the scenes in airports, supermarkets, fast-food chains, and cruise ships. I love tracking packages online. I sometimes go to web sites that track container ships and just poke around. I make special trips to giant grocery emporiums (like Wegmans) and walk around thinking about how everything got there (and where it's going to go). I actually once said (kind of not kidding) "Ports make me hot!"
If I lived near train tracks I would be a trainspotter. Possibly relevant: I'm in a big eastern US city, not really near water.
It's rare for me to be interested in things, so realizing I enjoy all these related topics has been exciting. What can I do about it?
