Our other hobbies

Well thought a thread about our side hobbies besides boating. Here's mine running a mini excavator. Also if I had to pick another it would be fixing the boat.

I haven't had much time for this hobby since I purchased Siesta, but my other hobby is model boat building.

Hobbies? Who has time for hobbies?

Seriously, music has long been a hobby since childhood.
Also enjoy fooling with cars and 4wds.
Shooting is another pastimeI enjoy.

I used to love to fly when I was much younger and san's kids, but it's too rich for me these days. Besides, I hate heights!

Oliver, you dig holes for fun? I need a pond in my back yard. Want to come over and play? Bring your big toy!

My hobby is building small boats and canoes.

Many years ago, when I was immortal, I flew hang gliders and ultralight airplanes.

Yeah, weird hobby right? We don't really do small jobs anymore because the overhead costs are to great. But if you need a lake dug, we can dig pretty large ones.

Other hobbies, hmm.
My wife would likely categorize my scuba diving as an obsession more than a hobby. Cave diving, wreck diving, really deep diving (300'+), ice diving, spear fishing, and the occasional reef dive....if the water is deep enough to get in over your head, I'm probably up for it.

I forgot to mention my other hobby, I keep about 50,000 ladies happy. I have a bee hive in my back yard.

Oh yeah, cats, I have lots of cats. When I grow up I want to be a crazy old cat lady.
I've got the crazy part down and almost enough cats.
