So what other hobbies do people have besides music/movies?

I just added flying R/C Helicopters to my list today.
I also enjoy MAME arcades, pinballs, and playing paintball with my team.

What about you????

Nick,
I absolutely love to water ski. The freedom of the wind in your hair, the feeling of magically floating over the water, the smash of water in your face as you fall forward......just can't be beat!

I don't get out very often anymore - in fact, it's been about 3 years now. I miss it.

If I had the time (and more importantly the money), I would like to take flying lessons.

Skiing (the kind with the really cold, white water)

Ping pong, er, umm, I mean table tennis -- I've taken up this sport with earnest now that my "office" building has a table.

General computer geekery

I've wanted to get a pilot's license for a very long time. I live less than two miles from a small regional airport, too. Maybe I should sit down and figure out exactly how much of an expense it would be, because I've been operating under the assumption that the cost would be prohibitive at this point in my life.

My number 2 hobby is fishing. Then it would be billards.

Used to do a lot of fishing--both freshwater and ocean. My buddy has a little tin can of a boat we take everywhere. Haven't done it in years, though.

Also like to go skiing. Before my buddy got married we'd go up to Mammoth every spring and do plenty of fishing and skiing.

Oh, and I like to golf. My dad and I are horrible golfers, but we have fun. Good thing we don't take it too serious.

And lastly, I like to read. Yes, I'm a nerd.

Been working too much to enjoy hobbies the last couple of years. Plus, they tend to come and go as I get older and try new things. A few things that I enjoy to do and have for as long as I can remember are: Playing chess, shooting pool, weigh training, building race engines, riding dirt bikes, back country / mountain riding (snowmachines), wood working, red wine and mixing cocktails.

I suppose being a caregiver for my 83 year old mother doesn't count so I'll give you the following:

Drag racing
Formula One
Photography
Long walks on rainy days
Gardening

Looking forward to trying a bit of veneering this winter.

Being a caregiver may not count as a hobby, Wayne, but, speaking from experience, it sure doesn't leave much time to enjoy whatever hobbies you do have. Good for you, sir.

I am a voracious reader/WW II history buff/Sports fan.
