Our main hobby is traveling (truck camper) and camping, which go along with other hobbies: photography, biking, canoeing, hiking, archery, shooting, reading. We do what we feel like, when we feel like, and intersperse our hobbies so none get boring. DW has taken up a travel journal. Nirvana? Nirvana sounds boring. I like our time here better.

  • Cameras: Nikon D50 and D7000. My primary hobby, of late.
  • Model Trains: A small N scale collection, and a HOn3 K-27. Gonna build a train layout someday, Colorado narrow gauge.
  • Camping Equipment: Mostly Coleman, tent, stove, lantern, etc. Giving my backpacking equipment to the kid. Gonna build a small camping trailer, because I've grown not-so-fond of the tent.
  • House: As they say, "If you have a house, you have a hobby..."

Reading, music, theatre, sewing, spending time with friends, helping out at my church (I chair the Youth Support Team).

"Toys"= any and all purchases for travel. "Travel expenses" are my largest luxury item...............for pure enjoyment! I'm always cleaning up from a former trip or dreaming/planning for the next one. Luckily, there are plenty of friends who feel the same. Hopefully, this can continue until I...... 1) run out the expendable cash; and/or 2) become immobile.

If #1 and 2 could be delayed until about age 90, that would be just fine.

Wow. After reading many of the other posts here, it's clear I better get back on the wagon with exercise. I like biking and walking, but everything else seems to crowd them out.

If I don't follow some of the regimens described below, I'll be hobbling before I hit 70!

Listening to music and collecting records. There's great fun in hunting down Holy Grails I never imagined ever finding, let alone, owning. I recently landed a Beatles "butcher cover."

I love my grill and the barbecue magic it produces. Babyback ribs complement family and friends. Steaks set the mood for romance. Oysters, chicken, pizza ... you name it, I'll scorch it.

I'm a Fantasy Football fiend and Commish for a league of 14 goofballs and knuckleheads. Four months of trash-talking and fun every year with friends and family spread all over the country. Good times.

Back in the 70's when I was living in NJ, at a flea market I ran across 2 copies of the Hendrix Electric Ladyland album that was banned (the English, glossy fold out cover with the nude women) in the US. One was $4 and was complete, while the other was missing one of the two records, so it was only $2. Needless to say, I only bought the cheap one - naturally for the cover - and I'm kicking myself to this day for passing on the other.

That's still a great score! The records are easier to find than the covers are. That one has been on My List for a while. Congrats!

Fellow karter here. Got in to it 3-4 years ago when I decided the costs of racing cars was getting to be a bit much. Have now gotten to the point where I really almost prefer racing the karts. Great group of people, ease of setup and maintenance, and all the wheel to wheel action you can want. I run an older Arrow AX9 with a IAME Leopard in TaG Masters.

Ok. That's one of my hobbies too. Just unloaded and unpacked a ton of parts. Knuck and Pan jugs... A seat pogo ...

As for the screen name ... knuckleheads were earlier than 61...

Am finally restoring the first Harley I owned... I bought it used at age 18 , and hung on to it since. Sat for 20 years as I rode newer Harley's. It's a 1976 FXB shovelhead ... Newer than your preferred bikes but this one I re-build to ride daily !!

Full advance spark at 38 degrees before TDC to static time them, as I recall ... Ha ha.

Life is good !

Hadn't seen it in years, so I dug it out. It's not perfect, but pretty good (considering it's 47 years old).
