    Add learning the Russian language to my hobby list. It’s mostly free & keeps my brain active.

    Archery, studying all things medical on the web of Human anatomy, anything I can learn to save lives. I use to be into fitness, lifting, wrestling, boxing. Even some Martial Arts weapons have been practiced to a high level. Nowadays it's mainly pellets & arrows inside & out no matter the weather.

    The above are hobbies. For when my job, being a Father, isn't demanding my attention. Those 3 things, (Air guns, Bows, studying)  keep me sane from the job.

    Always wanted to get into slot car racing, tracks, along with the railroad hobbies. RC planes for sure, and a Harley down 1-5 with a wife beater tank top on. None of those happened, due to life’s duties. Bought five acres out in the country, remodeled for 16 years, put my kid thru private school, so yeah, all those ones I listed never got a chance to happen. 

    But, I did get into reloading, playing computerized chess games, and have always been into working out with iron. Now, this PCP thing is just consuming me, and being retired, it takes up any and all the free time I have. 

     

    I still Love to design and build structures, but I leave all the physical work for my 22 year old son, due to seven back surgeries. Here’s a couple of pics of my last projects that I planned out:a 53’x6’ wide bridge and a 18’x12’ wide dock, both on my two acre pond.

    You guys do/have some cool stuff!

     

    I do a little woodworking and turning, trail running, a little bicycling, shooting,  R/C planes and quadcopters.  That’s about it.  Nothing real serious though, just a little here and there as time allows.

    Very nice! Slot cars are my other hobby as well. No routed track as I usually like to change the layouts around every few months. Plus I have never had anyone nearby to race with so 2 lanes is all I've ever needed. My current set ups include a 92' two lane road course on an 8'x16' table, and drag strips for HO, 1/43, 1/32, and 1/24. All are scale 1/4 miles except the 1/24. That is 1,000' per current NHRA rules. Here's an old pic with a different road course. There's no room to back up and get a good wide shot of everything, so this is the best I could ever get.

    I started with HO in the early 60's, and in '66 got a Strombecker Monaco 1/32 scale set for Christmas. I ran on Strombecker track until 2004 when I sold most of my entire  (quite massive) collection in prep for a move. At that time I switched to Arin 1/32 track for the road course. I kept enough Strombecker track for the drag strip. Copper foil, like you use on your routed tracks, eliminates any dead spots on the plastic track. Some might say my collection has grown to "massive" proportions again as the car count exceeds 400 and track is in the 400-500' area. Some day, when my grandsons are a bit older, I'll add the Artin digital track so we can race up to 6 cars on the 2 lane road course. I know, way more info than requested or needed, but you all know how passionate we can be about our hobbies, right? 😉

    For me, it's mountaineering and off-roading – or generally anything that involves the woods and not a lot of people.
