Hey guys and gals. We always like talking to intersting people. Usually those people have hobbies that make them have value in our eyes.

Ok I like to boat as do you. I can golf and workout. I like playing texas holdem. I like to shoot guns at the range but do not own any.

I thought about trying to learn an instrument but not sure I really want to. I know cars, mountain bikes, winter skiing, and travel fit the bill for some but what else do you guys do as hobbies?

I love to surf!

Don't get to spend much time in the ocean, but when I do, there is nothing like getting on a board and surfing!! The power behind the waves is unreal!! Longboards all the way!!

I've got too many hobbies :o

Like everyone else here, I love boating and skiing. I also like woodworking, autocross, shooting (but our local range just closed), and making beer/wine.

I also like doing projects on the house. We're in the middle of remodeling the upstairs bathroom right now...

I added golf to the list about two years ago. I like it, but I'm not good...and it takes too long to play a round.

We inherited a very nice Steinway piano last year, so I should probably learn to play or get rid of it...:confused:

As a hobby I chuck pumpkins.....a long ways! Last year we set the World Record with a throw of 1866 ft.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3KG1O4OqunA&feature=related

Follow the link above to some footage of the 2007 Burlington Pumpkin Pitch. Our machine is the one that's 65ft tall and we're using a crane to set up. You can see us throw at the 1:20 mark and again at the end....make sure you turn up the sound as it gives you better feel for just how fast that pumpkin is moving when it leaves the pouch.

Oh yeah....count one-one thousand, two-one thousand...up to 15. That's the hang time on the pumpkin.

Also enjoy snowskiing and golf.

Hey, we get some pretty good surf here on the South Coast! Check out this photo, taken at our local beach. It's bigger than the average surf I've seen in SoCal (though it's bigger than the average surf here too! :rolleyes: ).

We inherited a very nice Steinway piano last year, so I should probably learn to play or get rid of it...:confused:

Funny, we've been shopping for pianos lately. I want to get back into playing music again (even dusted off my old guitar and have been playing regularly). Since I'm basically a beginner I'm looking at the "Bayliner" type pianos instead of the "Mastercraft-quality" pianos. You're lucky to get that Steinway!

Coincidentally, the prices for boats and pianos are similar, depending on the quality level you're searching for! :(

I like to:
* photography
* work in my yard (spring, summer, and fall)
* plan my landscape projects (winter)
* study and try new things with plants
* boating with my family and friends
* Play a mountain dulcimer and harmonicas
* I've had to alter some of this some due to breathing issues, but hike in fens, swamps, dunes, and various forest habitats to get photographs of rare and endangered species
* camping
