Masturb... Shocked Embarassed Wrong forum


I used to have a bunch of different hobbies (plastic models, paintball, R/C cars, Hot Wheels, woodworking, Simplicity and Allis Chalmers garden tractors) but most of them have gone by the wayside for right now as my most addictive 'hobby' has become raising and bonding with my son. Little guy really munches up the time right now, but I cherish every minute with him. I will get back into the aforementioned hobbies when he can participate with me, but for now, it's all about my little 'Zilla Wink

I too have let many of the hobbies I so enjoyed at one time slip away once I became a parent. Aside from Q the couple I concentrate on these days are below.

Fishing: the DIY bug that bit me years ago also has me building my own custom rods, tying flies, and casting my own sinkers + jigs.
Brewing beer

Brewing Beer
Mt. Biking
Woodworking
Photography

All of those can get pretty expensive. I bought my wife a Nikon D7000 for christmas this year. She picked up a few lenses. And then couldn't complain when I built my smoker and single tier brew stand this spring!

<-- Not quite as dumb as he looks!

The New England Jet Rally is this weekend. I might head up tomorrow.

I went last year, but the event was canceled that day because of rain. The Jets look really neat, though.

If people haven't seen a jet model, here's a B-52 ...

Here's the crash. 8 engines at $1,500 each. I'm way too cheap to ever have this as a hobby.

Hobbies for me ...

cooking,
baking,
old cast iron cookware,
old cookbooks,
old cars (my wife has a 1966 Austin Mini Moke and I used to have a 1966 Austin Cooper S with the rare 970cc engine),
cycling (road and mountain ... need to get back into this more).

Whitetail deer hunting is one of the tops for me. Also like cooking and recently I restored about 40 old cast iron skillets and pots. I also have a 120 gallon planted angel fish tank in my living room. I used to fly RC planes but that went away when I started having kids. I figure another 16 years when I have both out of the house I can start having some hobbies again. I too enjoy photography but don't have any super expensive equipment. I have an entry level Canon DSLR with 4 lenses. I feel like I am missing something else????????

Well lets see I make fishing rods or at least have in the past. I have a small wooden lathe I make pens and wine bottle stoppers and stuff like that. I enjoy cooking. I also have a nice digital camera. Enjoy watching all sports. Fishing when I can. I use to hunt but have not done that in years. No wonder I am broke lol.

for me right now, it's Tae Kwon Do. takes up a good 5-8 hrs per week... Since I have 2 kids under 7 years old, and a FT job with 2 hrs commuting each day, it leaves little time for anything else..

but I do enjoy golfing, which doesn't happen often, and I collect antique weather books. Pre 1950 preferred.. I'm a degreed meteorologist and I find these old texts very cool. My oldest is from 1891 or so I think.

My room used to look like that except for the paneling you have.

The biggest difference though is that I wasn't BORN until 1973. Laughing

I run iRacing in my free time. Built my own racing cockpit complete with a custom 3 pedal setup, 8 speed shifter, heavily modified racing wheel all wired into a usb controller, along with a 32" monitor. I also built my own "gaming/racing" pc. Most nights I'm racing until at least 12 to 1 am. All thats missing is motion, and I'm workin on that Wink

Sorry for the crappy phone pic...
