Default Other Hobbies Besides Aquariums???

I was sitting here wondering how diverse our group actually is as far as interests/hobbies beyond the aquarium.

I'll start...

Besides my Fish Tank Addiction...

I'm into medieval & rennissiance re-creation/re-enactment. There's nothing like escaping reality by dressing in funny clothes, talking with funny words & accents, Drinking & fighting with swords!

OK, now let's hear from the rest of you!

REinactment? I used to be in the SCA...but those days have passed.

I love camping and hiking and other good things along that line, but since I started up college way back when, I havent gone out. Sorta makes me sad.

I do bike a lot when I can though. Asside from that, there is photography and *cough*WoW*cough*.

The internet is a good hobby, considering I do IT and a lot of AV crew work 60+ hours a week. Food is another good one... I'd like to get into cars a bit more but I'm saving up money for a big move so I gotta put that on hold for a while...
I'd like to try SCUBA diving, setting up a reef tank, shooting, and a few other hobbies, but they all cost more money & time than I can afford.

Hmmm...Mission Trails is one GREAT place for mountain biking, Tony. Or are you strictly a road bike kind of guy?

Work pretty much consumes almost all of my time, but I do enjoy:

High end hifi/av gear. Currently, I try to sneak in time to watch HD content on my 720p HDTV projector with a 8 feet screen.
Outdoors stuff (hiking, biking,etc),though I REALLY don't have time for it.
Video games (I have even LESS time for this). I buy a game occasionally, but they end up just laying there unopened.
Photography
Exploring stuff. I'm a nyc native, and moved here only recently. Just driving around and seeing where I end up is sometimes satisfying.
Keeping up with tech/business/finance. The tech part not so much a voluntary hobby as more of a requirement of the career.
Toys (especially Lego). But again, no time.

Too many to really list. I've had to control myself and reduce my interests to only a few in the last couple of years. Seems I have a problem with finding most things interesting. Obviously by my sig fishing is the biggest, but mostly outdoor activities take up my time these days.

I got a mountain bike actually....though I want a rode bike. Just need the $ and room for it LOL.

Can't quite do what I used to after the knee surgery, but I still like to ride casually.

Turbo, of the hobbies you listed - how many are you able to do with all 4 kids?
For me, if I am not working I am just enjoying time with mine.

I notice no one listed making more kids (smile)
as a hobby..........

That can be fun. (big grin)
