Default Who has other Hobbies?

Besides loving to drive cars and tear them apart than put them back together again it is not my only play toy


I also spend alot of weekends playing with RC Cars and Trucks. In the spring and fall I more active on the weekends running these other toys.

I love to take these to a RC onroad or offroad track and run with whoever is also playing that day



These are just a few of them.

I build stuff out of fiberglass. I start by making a "plug" (a model) out of styrofoam, cardboard, or wood, then cover it with plaster or bondo. When the shape is finished, I make a fiberglass mold that I can use to cast pieces from.

I like to dabble in photography.



Especially with my new, little model.

I shoot Skeet, Trap, and Sporting Clays whenever I get the chance. Before getting my 74 I shot much more often though.

For my 55th birthday this year I started playing drums, the full set. Hope to find a classic rock band that needs a drummer in the not too distant future.

I also have a full olympic barbell gym in my basement that I use in cycles...dedicated for a period of time, then slack off...but I always come back to it. Best ever squat was 305 for 5 sets of 5 reps.

I tend to dive deep into my hobbies, and am very passionate about them, but I actually have too many at the moment and none of them are getting the time they deserve but I am not willing to give any of them up.

I'm also into building custom golf carts, restoring John Deere garden tractors (I'm still a farm boy at heart), antique pickups (I have a totally original `50 Ford), helping my wife with her gardening/koi pond, astronomy (I have a big *** telescope), and I'm an IT guy so I like tech stuff. Some of my toys are shown here: http://www.gofastgarage.com

I collect vintage watches. I also buy and sell new and used watches as a full time job, but to me its more like a hobby.
