I saw a gentleman, post that he was into geo caching, today I was working on my bike. That got me wondering what other past time activities are you folks into?

For the Daily bread I am in aerospace maintenance planning

I fly RC aircraft, ride and work on my motorcycle.

Someone commented on the bike and was wondering what it is. It’s a 2011 Harley Dyna Wide Glide (edited in )

I’m jealous of those radio-controlled things – always wanted to give that a go, but somehow haven’t yet got into it.

Me – I like to write software. That’s what I used to do in real life before I retired – keeps my brain active, I hope, and now I have but a single “customer” to keep happy – me!

Write software for my daily bread,

Do a bit of acting, play bass in a praise and worship band and a gospel/country band, play a bit of guitar and madolin and spend lots of time messin in the yard, which always seems to need more work than I want to spend time,

My woodworking activities include making pens and building scale model wooden ships. Besides that, I play and teach guitar, program database software, play computer games and my favorite: relax in the evening watching TV (doesn’t really matter what, I think I don’t actually “watch”), with a glass of red wine, a few morsels of cheese and maybe some prosciutto. :)

So computers used to be my hobby when carpentry/woodworking/furniture building was my trade, now its reversed.

Hunting, gunsmithing, antiquing (its how I find my tools), tool restoration, more tool restoration, and usually some more tool restoration.

Well Randy … ive got a huge fire pit that starts as initiation into the PBD circuit. You know that you have passed the test when the hog is done and you’re still around to eat some of it.

Love bowhunting, but I’m no good at it; the elk tell each other where I hunt and they stay there to laugh at me. Hiking for miles thru the woods with my dogs, music (Ted Nugent to Pink Floyd, turn that 33!), creative 3-d puzzles and mechanical challenges, old mechanical things. And I do love a cold beer as I watch the campfire do its thing!

In my spare time from my facilities management day job, I play guitar, piano, write music, and take photographs. (All when I’m not making sawdust, of course.)

Ken, great looking ride. I cannot tell what it is. I love riding when it is warmer with my wife and riding with my Christain Motorcycle Association buddies (Redeemed Riders – Bedford). I work as a Range Control Officer for the government.

Lots of stuff.
I paint a bit

And I love to build things like my electric Pontoon boat floated with 2400 soda bottles

Or my humongous quad db8 hidef TV antenna ‘bertha’

And then my teardrop trailer. We travel a lot. Love a good road trip.

Those are just the normal things I do.

-- The smell of wood, coffee in the cup, the wife let's me do my thing, the lake is peaceful.
