    We all have them. I enjoy playing with my son, doing whatever it is that makes him happy, and firearms. Cleaning, shooting, buying, modifying, all that. Big fan of custom vehicles, and riding little honda 50s with street tires all over the town.

    How about you?

    I like the following but not in order:

    1) Scotch - yes it's a hobby.
    2) Backpacking - like real backpacking in Yosemite for 1 week and 30 miles with a 60lb pack. Screw minimalists!
    3) Shooting - I <3 gunz!
    4) Jeeps - even though mine is stock. :(
    5) Obviously Paracording.
    6) Leather Craft. I made a nice knife sheath so far, still learning the craft.
    7) Wood Working - I'm pretty handy with wood tools. ;)
    8) Android App/Rom Development - I am dabbling at the moment.

    Yeah, it's super fun. Mostly playing with APPs right now, but the hard part is thinking of something that actually needs to be built.

    Nice. What kind of plotter/software combo you running? Flexi-Sign was my favorite with a nice 40" Roland. I miss weeding and taping. :(

    I'm glad my daughter is getting older (2-1/2 years old) and likes music. One day I'll be able to play music while she is in the car.

    Basically anything outdoors. We hunt, fish, and camp... I have a small hobby farm of chickens, ducks, and geese. Guns are a big interest here, we are lucky enough to have a back yard range of sorts. Its a big berm we shoot at with multiple spinning targets. My favorite plinking gun is my Remington 597. The kids are just as into shooting as my husband and I. My 11 yo has an old Winchester and my 6yo took over my oldest cricket when she outgrew it. My 5yo uses the cricket as well. I am the general leader to our towns 4-H club and host poultry meetings for the poultry kids on top of the regular meetings and community service. I also crochet, recycle/reuse anything I can and garden. We also adopted a trail at our local state park so keep that train cleaned and in order. Oh and I also like making things out of spent casings. My most recent item was a wind chime from 22lrs and 243 casings.

    And of course I play online when I can.

    I'm an avid reader. Most of my free time is spent in book stores or online. I spend 50-70 hours a week online, most of it just reading.

    I raised chickens till a couple of weeks ago. My neighbor has 50 and they are encroaching, they also don't look healthy, so until I can discuss his breeding techniques I didn't want my girls around them.

    Aside form that there aren't to many hobbies I haven't tried.

    Yeah, we have quite a few. Some are even PDGA sanctioned.

    My favorites are Fort Steilacoom in Lakewood, Riverside in Sumner, White River in Auburn, and Lakewood Park in Sea-Tac.

    If you ever find yourself in the Seattle/Tacoma, WA area, I'll give you a tour.
