Beautiful work.   I can't compete with that, but I like to fish, watch sports, and cook.  I make damn good wood smoked BBQ and am an all-around excellent cook.

Damn, those dulcimers are gorgeous. Luthier is definitely on my dream list of hobbies that I know I'll never have time for but would love to get into.

My problem is that I've always had more hobbies than time, and I keep seeming to accumulate new ones. The ones that I've stuck with are guitar/bass, fishing, hunting, gardening and brewing. I'm always looking for new experiences, so I find myself picking up new hobbies through friends. Some stick more than others.

It's all in time management. I am married and have a teenager but these are my hobbies: dirt bikes, Harleys, shooting, cycling, running, swimming, RC helicopters, golf, snow skiing, Wakeboarding, and indoor rockclimbing. O0I

 just don't get to do anyone thing more than a few times a year...:(

saltwater aquariums I suppose are at the top of my other hobbies, though I've slacked a bit as my brewing obsession peaked.

brewing is no longer a hobby for me, but I have ventured off into fermented foods. Right now just sauerkraut and pickles but have plans to do kimchi and other fermented vegetables.

I also back pack, canoe, hike and am getting back into running after a 3 year hiatus. I have two dogs I walk and hike with daily. I have an 8 year old Great Dane in fantastic shape and an 11 year old "Mountain Dog" mix that will probably live forever.

2 kids, 2 dogs, 3 guinea pigs, a snake and now 4 kittens, not to mention a gold fish. Pretty much an all around zoo.

Oh, and I have a motorcycle that sits in the garage that I never ride. Used to be a daily commuter but now I have to haul kids and/or 50+ pounds of this or that around every day.

Gardening, canning, cooking, hunting, fishing, gathering, brewing- whatever supplies me and my family with the freshest, healthiest, best possible food and drink for free or cheap.
Also camping, backpacking, hiking, mountain biking, x-country skiing, traveling, nature observation, canoeing- whatever gets me outdoors and exercising.
In a nutshell, I like to do healthy outdoor things with friends and family that nourish mind, body, and soul.
Oh, and I like to watch the Philadelphia Eagles football.

Brewing is the only thing I consider an active hobby these days. I spend a good amount of time brewing/reading about beer/writing on my blog. I'm also trying to get my law firm off the ground so that's most of my day, every day. Otherwise, I workout, cook, do a bad job gardening and on rare occasion write music very poorly. I used to work on writing music as a more serious hobby but I haven't been feeling it over the past couple years. I'm sure I'll come back around to it when I'm less stressed about work.

I love to cook and usually do every meal from scratch.

I also love Cardinals baseball.

But lately my time has been devoted to house hunting and wedding planning. I'm really looking forward to expanding the brewery once I get a house, but this whole house shopping thing is a bit much. It really cuts into my brewing time!

I tried to ride every day over the summer with pretty good success.  Now that schools back in session, the bike will sit in the garage until next year.  I don't think I can fit the girls into the saddle bags or double stack them on the back.

My garden gets little attention, but I make time for BBQ (easy, because I can do other things while the smoker does its thing).  I'm not sure it's a hobby, but I do a lot of repairs/remodeling/maintenance around the house.  I wrench on cars a fair bit, but again it's more maintenance at this point than hobby.  I suppose my other hobby could be described as fixing stuff whats broke.

I guess brewing has become my main hobby, but my other hobbies depends on where I am.  When we are in Maui, surfing, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing...basically anything water related.  When we are in Colorado, camping, hiking, mountain biking, shooting (not a hunter but enjoy shooting), fishing (although I am a horrible fresh water fisherman but still enjoy the experience). 

My wife just yelled out "Don't forget your fantasy sports!"  I guess she's right since I'm currently in 2 fantasy football leagues, one baseball league and a NASCAR fantasy league.  Then again, as I remind my wife, the fantasy leagues are the only hobby I actually make money on!

I love to cook/ bbq, but I wouldn't consider that much of a hobby since my wife doesn't cook...it's more of a necessity!  Uh oh, she read this so you may not see me on here for a while  ;D

Trying to figure out how to play bass is about all the extra hobby I have time for (young kid, lot's of overtime at work etc.)

I used to write and act but not much time left.

Working out, but that sort of a maintenance thing more than a hobby.

The AT was 15 minutes from my house so we went there often. A lot of the places I can't remember the names now but Horse Shoe trail near lower Susquehanna and lots of day hikes around Pine Grove Furnace and Doublin Gap. Went lots of place with Scouts and really don't remember all the locations.

Homebrewing is my  hobby obsession lifestyle these days.

I do work out, mainly so that I can I do heavy lifting required when brewing. Travel has been a passion for 25 years, and now it also involves beer related destinations.

This summer I got an old 12 speed road bike to ride around town.

There area few adventures I still want to do. Another river trip through the Grand Canyon is on my bucket list. Some long hikes too, but my wife is not so much into those these days.

I'm familiar with the area. I have friends there and possibly a job opportunity in Adams county. Pine Grove furnace is where AT thru hikers do the half gallon challenge, where they eat a half gallon of ice cream at the halfway point of the trail, right?

Similar situation here. I played guitar for 6 or 7 years before I got my first bass, so I think of myself as a guitarist first and foremost. But everyone else plays guitar, so when it comes down to jamming/bands/etc., I always end up playing bass because everyone else plays guitar. Plus, my bass looks so much nicer than most of my guitars.

I have a hobby that involves the next step after the fermentation process, but we're not allowed to talk about on this forum.  I find this pretty amusing because homebrewing used to be illegal too, until homebrewers worked hard to have homebrewing made legal. 

This other hobby suffers from erroneous myths that are repeated by many out of ignorance of the subject.  The hobby is involved in a new craft renaissance on the commercial level.  Take my word for it.  Doing it a home will become as common as homebrewing someday, once again.  We just have to overcome all of the BS myths that surround it.

SWMBO gets the same sour face she used to get, back before I started homebrewing, when I mention the "activity that must not be named".  I'll get there someday but barely have enough time keep beer in the fridge right now.

I didn't know that.
 
I was at a friends house who's opening a craft distillery when he was 'planning' recipes. While seeing the process, I felt like 'This is it? This is illegal?' It was like I'd just found out soap was considered dangerous.

Don't worry, they get through that phase.  It will seem like no time and you'll spend your free time wondering what they are doing with their free time at college.   ;D

Enjoy them while they're small.  As they get older, encourage them give their opinions on every subject.  Kids have completely different ways of looking at things and they constantly amaze me.

One of my hobbies is gushing about how interesting and fun raising kids can be.   8)

My first post in the forum.

My other hobby might b4 of interest to those hikers and those with kids...Geocaching

Now that you don't need a dedicated GPS to do it more can give it a try. A smart phone works to find hidden containers all over the world. Some are very creative and could be anywhere..a parking lot at the mall or deep in the Woods.
Doesn't cost a thing if you have a smart phone or handheld GPS and free membership to any of the listing sites.
Geocaching.com
OpenCaching.us
TerraCaching.com

In no particular order: cooking, bbq, gardening, canning, my musical hobby (bassist) went to wayside due to the brewery startup. I can't forget the AHA Governing Committee!

I also try to spend time with my wife and two dogs, amongst all of the aforementioned hobbies. :)

Although most of my time these days is spent on building my dream.

Bought a new bass a few weeks back and I've been trying to find time to play it.  every time I do I feel guilty for taking time away from the book!

Best of luck on the brewery, Ron!  Love the name!

Thanks gentlemen!

I've always wanted to make cheese, bought the book, discussed it but never pulled the trigger. Perhaps I can just buy good quality cheese and enyoy it. I love good quality artisan cheeses. :)

I have source for fresh, raw milk (my brother-in-law drives a milk truck) but I haven't tried making cheese yet.  It looks very interesting and I love cheese.  I just need to find more time for still one more hobby.  8^)

It wouldn't hurt to find a cave either but that probably isn't happening.

It's actually pretty easy to make mozzarella and ricotta at home. Give it a try, you'll be hooked.

Exactly what I need! Another hobby that involves addiction to dairy products.

My first car was a five year old '66 Buick Special with a 340cid V8.  Way to much car for a 16 year old to be driving.  Got my first speeding ticket in that car ( and second, and third...).

I also am into electric rc vehicles. Bought a short course truck and started racing a few months ago. I bought a buggy the other week to race also. It's a good way to kill the time while I am waiting for my brew to ferment.

Somehow I avoided the tickets so far. I have the original 401 nailhead in mine. There may or may not be some rubber left behind here and there.

Just added some exterior trim a couple weekends ago. Still too much work to do and winter's right around the corner
