I don't really have any hobbies, just spending time with my 4 kids ( 1 girl- 14 yrs: 3 boys - 4yrs - 2 yrs - 1 yr and all with irish/scottish names) when I'm not working. But have several intrests... Star Wars fan, listining to celtic/celtic rock music. recently starting reading up on celtic history. And the #1 intrest lately is wearing a kilt (purchased my 1st one a month ago).

If I had four kids, I can imagine being thankful for having sleep as a hobby!

Cool, diverse bunch we have here!

Me, well... glassblowing ceased to be a hobby last year, now I'm a full time glass artist. I know my way around a kitchen quite well and I love to feed people. I really like to putter around the yard and make stuff grow, mostly crabgrass it seems. I'm a complete music junkie and have played tuba for 35 years. Oh, and I've got two Moluccan Cockatoos, Quimby and Cosmo... or as I like to call them, my psychotic stepsons, heheh.

I have soooo many hobbies and interests (my mother thinks it is a lifelong midlife crisis :lol: )

Some favorites are camping & hiking, and hunting and fishing. I primarily enjoy deer hunting (bow, shotgun, and muzzeloader), and fishing for smallmouth with ultralight (4lb test line) gear.

this years shotgun season - 8 point.

I also enjoy motorcycleing. Here is my 2004 Honda Sabre 1100. If you look close you can see the ghost flames in the paint.

Other hobbies include homebrewing, model railroading (N Scale), reading, and listening to music.

Instruments that I play?????? I guess that owning them doesn't count as playing them. I own three quitars. An Ibanez Blazer electric and two acoustics. I am ashamed to say I can;t play a single thing on them :oops: .

I could go on and on :roll:

I swapped an friend some extra stuff I had for the Ibanez electric. I didn't have the time or money at the time to take lessons.

The Epiphone acoustic was purchased when I started taking group lessons. They were really cheap. Long story short, I was about 16 yrs older than the next oldest student. I quickly realized that you can only go as fast as the slowest student. After a month I decided to stop the lessons.

The third guitar is a classical accoustic that was owned by my brother. He gave it to me about a year before he passed away.

I do plan on taking lessons sometime soon. I am in the beginning stages of job hunting and relocating closer to my family in southern Ohio. Once that happens, and I am settled in, I want to start.

Currently my hobbies are extremely limited by space and draconian firearms regulations. However if I had the space they would be working on my '67 Nissan Patrol, reloading/following the school of Wiley E Coyote School of Gunsmithing (WECSOG) and reading. These will hopefully come to be in late august or early september, assuming I can find a job quickly.

i have alot of hobbies i guess... too many to do any of them justice. :)

in no particular order:

- photography (i have a home darkroom)

- i collect pure strategy board games and i used to play DnD

- learning the tin-whistle (low-D) and a fife

- i love hiking and backpacking in the mountains

- i camp with a Hennessy Hammock.

- kilt wearing (duh)

- leather work (i worked for a year making leather goods for Old Salem in a previous life)

- so i got paid to do living history, but i have also done it for fun (mostly rev war era).

- i was a stagehand in a former life and so i still dabble in lighting design and sound engineering (do that stuff for my church now).

- i love Star Wars, Star Trek, and Lord of the Rings.

- i love celtic music, can't get enough of it

- i do web design on the side; and for my day job i am a database programmer.

- i love technology gadgets and computers

- i study, read, and engage in forums for men's issues

- i'm also on my church's building committee (which i guess that is not so much a hobby as it is some type of self-punishment.)

earned my Eagle Scout a bunch of years go...

Sweet, me too!

So, since I didn't see this before, I guess I should add my 2 cents.

My hobbies include:

gardening

photography

cooking

and hiking.

I enjoy listening to music and watching movies. Netflix is a God from above.

I don't have too many hobbies. I used to be part of a couple of Hot Air Balloon crews when I lived in Pennsylvania, but haven't had any luck finding balloonists here in NC. As noted above, I used to be in the Boy Scouts and used to do some grand hikes and camping. I'd like to get back into it a little more.

I guess that's about it.

Well I love to skateboard, but recently my bearings just blew up and it destroyed one of my wheels, so I have to wait until I'm in America so I can buy a new set of wheels and bearings. I love to go biking, I can't realy jump ramps (I'll add some videos below) and I love to hang out with my friends. Yea that's me :P

My hobbies are wide and varied...

One line, HTML based gaming

Live action role play

D&D

Sewing, crocheting and other crafts

Cooking

SCA and any form of historical research

Those are the main ones... but I'm like a kid. Anytime I find something new and interesting I dive in head first.
