I've built a large percentage of my stereo equipment. Amplifiers, preamps, and loudspeakers from scratch. I always have a large garden (my best crop of carrots ever this year, and I'm going to use Orfy's recipe for carrot wine). I spend a lot of time with my nose in a book, and a lot of times the book is the Bible. I've got a Honda CL360 that I ride to work when I can.

My favorite hobby involves SWMBO.

And there it is. Unless I missed it, SWMBO / family wasn't called out until posts 56 & 57. Sure there are things we do together (or by ourselves) that you could call a hobby but time with them is what I consider my hobby. Oh, and brewing (they rarely help with that)!

I drink what I brew

In all seriousness I used to collect baseball cards but the hobby sucks now... it's just not fun anymore.

This is really the only hobby I have right now. (not that I have time for another with 2 kids under 4)

Well I've been a cyclist since a skiing accident put me in the hospital for a week and 12 months of re-hab on my reconstructed knee. Several Bikes since as money provided. So now I have several.
Then there was the "Speed" need! Auto crossing, A VW GTI ... that is still waiting for the roll cage in the garage. So I down sized to a 125 Racing clutch Kart for racing. Well after 3 years and seriously bruised ribs every w/e out...
Got into Sailing, then work just got in the way.... It's in the garage...
Then I needed a tractor to do work around the property.... take care of the road maint. Brush hog the acreage and help the neighbors... 3pt splitter, for wood... then 3pt Tiller to start gardening....

a 24' x 36' pole barn is full of all the toys. But I'll be quitting work in 24 months and I plan on taking my time and spreading it around all my hobbies!!!

Retiring at 45? Nice, wish I could but got laid off too many times, plant closing, etc.

How does the 3pt splitter work out for you? I was thinking of getting one having a tractor and all instead of one with a motor.

DAMN, you guys keep reminding me of other hobbies...I went through the baseball card phase ...still have several boxes upstairs somewhere.....The grandbaby is my hobby now, he lives next door so we have him all the time. 13 months old and already my buddy. Calls me POP POP and when I tell him to go night night he will flop over and start snoring ( like me lol)
Another hobby was ( don't wanna argue about this) cockfighting. Handled my first fight at 12 years old. I was traveling all over fighting roosters every weekend during the season for years. Haven't set one down in many years but the last time I won 5 straight .... No roosters anymore but still have an affinity for the sport.

I played paintball for about 11 years before quitting this year. What kind of paintball did you play?

I would say my other big hobby right now is finding a job. Only a semester and a half left and I need to find a place to work after graduation.
