Other than hitting F5 on CP what do you do to pass the time?
My music days are few and far between now and I've found myself clamoring for a hobby.
I started leather working and have had fun making out of the norm stuff that everyone does in belts and wallets.
Made some armor for the recent excuse to drink a lot from a horn and look at wenches.

Mountain biking. Prior to daylight saving's time, I was on my bike daily. A lot of that is just hitting the nearby flow trails for some laps and jumping with my youngest son. I try to get at least one longer "adult" ride of 2-3 hours on one weekend day and usually a shorter ride with my son of same duration on the other weekend day. We do a lot of sessioning jump lines and pump tracks with him as well, though.

Now that it's dark when I get home, we're looking at investing in lights. Until then, I'm sort of stuck only riding on weekends, but I still was on my bike around 7 hours last weekend altogether.

There is some surprisingly good riding in Florida. Alafia State Park is solid. Santos up by Ocala is really good. There's also some good stuff down around Miami and Palm Beach. Not a whole lot around Sarasota, though. I have been pretty amazed at the variety of trails that people can make with so little elevation change in Florida, though.

I read something a while back that there's an urban trail that goes all the way up the coast now from somewhere in Florida to Virginia or some such thing. Some day I'm going to walk that. Have you heard of it?

Urban Trail? Not sure... there's the Appalachian Trail, which isn't Urban, that goes from Georgia to Maine.

The impression I got was that it was like a big boardwalk along the coast, and the states have been stitching shorter trails together. I wish I still had the article.

Oh, it might be this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/East_Coast_Greenway

I'm not a wilderness guy so I'm not going to backpack. But I'd really like to do something like this.

Watching sports, petting my cat, and watching way too much stupid TV shows that I hate because that is what my GF loves to do. I guess I could say poker is a hobby, other than that I don't have much. I need to be more well rounded.

I don't play video games. I don't play any other sports anymore. I always told myself I was going to get really into rec league basketball - because I was a decent ball player when I was younger but I haven't touched a basketball in over a decade. I guess if Lebron is still out there ballin maybe I can achieve my YMCA dream still.

I go through hobbies like women. I start enjoying something, spend hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars on it, then get bored with it and move on to something else. Been this way for years. Right now it's homebrewing, been doing it for a couple years but it's starting to get boring too. I think I have adult ADD.

Man. We love riding and the whole scene... and NWA is turning into a freaking hot spot, which is even more awesome.

I love that vid. Bell is hilarious, but he railed that second berm (look at that dust cloud!).

I just hope he continues to love riding as much as he does now. It's great for a kid to be really passionate about something. My other son really doesn't have anything that he's super focused on.

I started skateboarding out here. Haven’t skated since my early twenties (I turn 42 next month) but it didn’t take long for me to relearn how to push, balance and turn. I fell down a couple of times and got a few scratches but nothing major. I did pull my hamstring trying to push too hard. Not trying to ollie or take on any vert ramps, I just enjoy cruising on the bike paths and taking my board wherever I got. There’s a lot of smooth concrete here so there’s a lot of places to ride.

I bought a deck and setup for $100 at a local skate shop. A couple of weeks later I wanted to see if I could learn to ride one of those little 22” penny boards so I bought a knockoff at the local Chinese wal-mart for $12 and replaced the wheels and bearings for $30. The knockoff penny turned out to be a blast to ride once you figure it out. It’s fast as shit going down inclines. I feel like I’m too old to be doing this shit but most of the time when I feel like I’m losing control of the board, I just jump off.

I used to do a ton of writing, especially poetry about finding acceptance and love. Funny, once I actually started accepting myself instead of seeking acceptance from others, I noticed I didn't write as much. Now that I found love (and have a kid), my writing days are non-existent. I really don't have anything that I do just for me. I guess I need to find something.

My monstrously busy schedule has caused my girl to complain that I'm not spending enough quality time with her.

I actually took a break a couple days ago for about 2 or 3 minutes. I noticed it was like, 18 degrees outside.

So I started thinking to the ultimate complete limit, and then it hit me.

I got us a microwave fireplace. Sit in front of the fire all night in just 15 minutes.

Guitar. Did the band thing for a little while. It was such a blast. We had an interesting gimmick where about 90% of the songs we did were "Oh yeah...I remember that song" songs from the 70s, 80s, 90s, and 00s. Not necessarily one-hit-wonders, just the forgotten songs from various artists (like, In the Meantime by Spacehog, Breakup Song by Greg Kihn, Interstate Love Song by STP, Run by Collective Soul, Open Up Your Eyes by Tonic, Strutter by KISS).

Writing. It's weird, I love to write but don't really like to read that much. Wrote a book. Took me about 1.5 years. It was a lot of fun. Not trying to make any money off of it or anything. Just wanted to see if it could be done. Had about 50 of them printed. Hardback. Hand them out to friends who enjoy reading.

Tennis and Platform Tennis. Grew up playing competitive tennis. Played collegiately. Have way more fun now playing than I did when I was younger. It's basically just an excuse to get together, hit some balls, and pound some cheap domestic swill. Platform tennis is a winter sport that I just picked up last year. It's a cross between tennis, ping pong, and racquetball. Small tennis court, inside a cage, that you play off the walls. Lots and lots of fun.

Remodeling. The wife and I, since 2012, have bought and sold 4 different houses. We buy one that needs work, fix it up, live in it for two years, avoid capital gains, then sell it. Fun hobby that has made us a few extra $$s. Though, we barely broke even on our 2nd house.

I started skateboarding out here. Havenít skated since my early twenties (I turn 42 next month) but it didnít take long for me to relearn how to push, balance and turn. I fell down a couple of times and got a few scratches but nothing major. I did pull my hamstring trying to push too hard. Not trying to ollie or take on any vert ramps, I just enjoy cruising on the bike paths and taking my board wherever I got. Thereís a lot of smooth concrete here so thereís a lot of places to ride.

I bought a deck and setup for $100 at a local skate shop. A couple of weeks later I wanted to see if I could learn to ride one of those little 22Ē penny boards so I bought a knockoff at the local Chinese wal-mart for $12 and replaced the wheels and bearings for $30. The knockoff penny turned out to be a blast to ride once you figure it out. Itís fast as shit going down inclines. I feel like Iím too old to be doing this shit but most of the time when I feel like Iím losing control of the board, I just jump off.


You're probably going to get hurt (I'm frequently hurt from mountain biking), and it's not that big of a deal. HOWEVER, it takes a LOT longer to feel 100% than when you were younger. Also, things that I would have bounced up from in my younger days will have me hurting for a week afterward, now.

I still take risks and ride aggressively, but I try to manage those risks. I really can't afford, professionally or personally, to be laid up with a broken leg these days. On top of that, I don't want to have a serious injury and lose ability to workout and maintain fitness at my age.

But seriously...

It might be more a compellsion than a hobby. I have ARD, so I'm not quite like the other kids. And my socks fit too loose.

I am positively fascinated with all those purty jazz guitar chords. I gave up playing drums on the reg about 3 years ago due to physical limitations.

I picked up a guitar to learn some chords. Found a tuba player that plays bass, so I had to start learning a bunch of songs. He turned me on to the music of Antonio Carlos "Tom" Jobim.

I have had so many over the years that have gone the wayside.

Silhouette 3d bow shoots in the summer time with hand made osage orange longbow.

Stump shooting with above bow on farm for practice.

woodcarving mostly goes to the fireplace.

Primitive camping and hunting. By primitive I mean a tent not building lean to shelter and using barebow traditional type archery.

My favorite hobby though is dressing in a clown suit and popping out of the woods late at night scaring the bejesus out of folks.

Ukulele is fun and easy, too.

It can lead to harder things like electric guitars with fuzz-tones and wah-wah pedals.

So watch out.

I have too many hobbies and not enough time to do many of them.

I build things in the shop, hunt, like red dirt music shows, fish, raise honey bees. The only hobby I really have now is coaching or taking my kids to and from practice-games when I'm not at work.

I went to a Jason Boland show in KC on a whim a couple of weeks ago at The Truman. It was an ok venue but their beer had been warm or something. If any of you were the 500lb guy in the front row who screamed and twerked the entire time, thanks for spitting that half mouthful of beer on my face during that whoooohooo.

don't really have any hobbies anymore.
played guitar since I was 13, and used to play probably 3 hours a day and more on the weekends; but haven't touched it aside from a handful of times in the last 10 years and since have sold off my Marshal 4x12

haven't ridden my motorcyle since April, and looking to sell it to get something different.

just don't have time any more for much of anything it seems. my work changed locations, so now my commute went from 15 minutes each way, to 50 minutes each way on a good day, and work 9 to 10 hours a day. Pretty much just tired all the time.

I would, however, like to build (or have someone build) me a really good complimentary computer to smoothly run a legit flight simulator. I enjoyed that quite a bit ; have quite a few binders of approach plates (or whatever they're called), VOR freqs, flight checklists for common civilian/private pilot type aircraft. Have several pieces of gear like a yoke and throttle assemblies; electronic switches, and other modular sim gear. But, my computer finally went belly up a good 6 years ago. It wasn't really intended for gaming. But I'd like to build one soley for the Sim.

No real time for hobbies, I cook, drink beer and other than that, been working on the house.

In the last year and a half, had the house painted, painted the garage, power washed and stained the fence, had the roof replaced and just had a new heat pump installed.

I'm going to start on the inside of the house next, paint and new floors. The house is going to be 19 years old. It's been in need of updates for some time.

Yeah when I pulled my hamstring it scared the shit out of me because it felt like something hit me in the back of the leg. It took a good two weeks to heal and stop hurting. I can deal with pulled muscles, scrapes and scratches but I try to avoid the stuff that could cause broken bones.

There are several other brewers here, me, KCUnited, phisherman I think....I actually just rebrewed the CP beer we came up with last summer.

I spent many years playing music don't do that but about 2 or 3 times a year anymore.

I run a lot, I brew a lot. (These 2 things are very connected, I started running due to beer calories taking their toll)

And I have 65'Chevy II money pit that I am close to being done with.

Bunch of of other little things I mess with but mainly running,brewing, and tinkering on my car.

If I'm not trying to learn more on the guitar, I'm typically working on building various retro arcade cabinets/machines.

I have a project now where the "machine" is a coffee table - and the two player controls/buttons, etc. are all built-in to the table. Wanted something portable for when kids/friends come over.

When done, will have retro arcade graphics and a plexiglass cover, etc.

It's fun, and calming.
