I've got two kids (4.5yr, 9mn), so while I have other hobbies I have no time to do them. Barely did anything with the car last year, bet I only put 2000km on it. Which is sad since there was nothing wrong with it.

Track days are my most fun hobby, and of course working on the car goes along with that.

Ham radio and homebrewing, but my interest in them waxes and wanes. I really need to brew a batch of beer before I forget how.

Been working on our house that we bought 6 months ago. Not really a hobby per se, but it takes a lot of time and I suppose I don't mind doing it.

The little time I have to play video games is on my PS2.

Firearms, bonsai (that didn't last too long though), music and hi-fi audio, wine, single malt scotch, cigars. I'm told I have ADD when it comes to hobbies. Jogging, lifting, and playing basketball are not done often enough these days.

I'm pretty into music and recording. Kayaking, paintballing, computers, cooking, and art also. I'd like to add guns to that list soon.

It's a tough time to be getting in to them. Gun prices have skyrocketed over the last year or so along with ammunition. Used to be able to get 1K rounds of 7.62x39 for 80 bucks, now it's more like 200. The cheapest AK, a WASR used to go for $180, now they are 5-600. It's crazy out there.

Hobbies? Hobbies? ****, I'm married. World's most time consuming hobby. My wife owns my time.

Not really, we spend a lot of time together though. I go out to the range and shoot every couple of weeks, and work out every morning. On weekends I strap my daughter's seat on the back of the bike and take some trails. Since I sold the motorcycle I've gotten back into mountain biking (used to train with school team), and the whole family can enjoy that much easier than motorcycling, although I miss being a hooligan.

Working on cars is and always will be my number one hobby though.

Messing with cars is my main hobby. I've got the miata I'm always fuc.. fixing on and I've got an 86' Trooper II I work on when I can. Going to MSU though so that pretty much kills all my time except for christmas and summer when I'm off. I love fishing, river running, going off shore, skiing, knee boarding, etc. My dad was a fisherman for 27 years. We have.... four boats. 14' homemade triple hull fishing boat, 17' Sunbird, 21' Sportcraft, and a 25' Sea Ox. And a 27' Loures but it needs... Everything so it doesn't count. That will be another project. I want to get into hunting one day.

EDIT: and a little bit of an audiophile. I enjoy listening to music and have a decent setup.

Just turned 23 years old. SINGLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just Built a House (moved in 2 months ago), I call that a hobby at this point because I did a bunch of crap involving that.

Audiophile
Cars/Motorcycles (Have a '05 ZX-6R that I bought brand new)
Computers
Games (Rockband, RPG, First Person Shooters)
Working out

Thats about all the things I have time for including the time I spend with friends and family. I really wish I could have 30 hours or so in a day...that would be nice.

My car is the most time consuming right now. I am trying to get it up and running by the end of February.

The prices on guns and ammo are purely reflective on knee jerk paranoia over what "might" happen, and over fears the economy will get so bad we'll be living in a mad max movie.


I haven't seen any official policies from this administration having anything to do with firearms. When I do, then I'll worry about my guns.


I bought mine in the Bush era when they were cheap. Suckas.



*Oh yea, I realize I do like arguing, even when I'm wrong. I guess that can be a hobbie.
