What hobbies do you guys have? I have a few radio control cars that I play with on the weekend. But most of the time just hang out with the wife and go bowling etc..

# 1 on the list has to be the boat, from April to October. Throw in reading, & working around the house, time permitting.

The plate is pretty full.....EC, P/T AHJ 3 days, & 1 or 2 eves at the County Vo-Tech eats up a lot of time.

Hobbies seem to come and go with me. i only seem to have time to do one well. Two of my biggest have been shooting and rock climbing. Used to shoot in high power rifle matches and have made multi day ascents in Yosemite, Zion and Red Rocks outside of Vegas.
I've been known to enjoy skiing, motorcycles, building computers and collecting church keys.
I like projects around the house and love to invent or create stuff to remedy a problem.
Currently climbing is taking a back seat to the home remodel.

Golf and gardening.

My favorite used to be drinking and fishing, but gave that up 15 years ago. Seems I cannot do one without the other, sure miss it.

Mine was my daughters travel softball for the last 9 years. But she's done with that now, so I'll just start hunting like I used to before she started playing. There's always something that needs kill'n.
