What do you like besides homebrew
« on: November 09, 2009, 08:07:07 AM »
In the interest of friendly banter, what are you hobbies or other interests?

Mine are, paranormal investigations, whitewater kayaking, snow skiing, hunting(got a 6 point the other day), cooking out on the grill/smoker.  

Forgot to add that I spend a fair amount of time in the garden too, coming up on third year hops.

Gardening/Landscaping in the spring & summer.
Catching up on some reading and camping in the summer - though we didn't get out much this year (babies and campfires don't mix well)
Fall - taxi the oldest around to her various organized activities (its not what I want/like to do, but I don't seem to have time for much else)
Fall/Winter - PC gaming or catching up on some reading at night, playing with the kids any chance I get (especially outside)

Hunting, fishing, sportbikes, snowmobiling, cooking. So little time...

My other hobbies are wine making, cooking at a gourmet level, collecting Swiss automatic movement dive watches and tinkering with their inward movements. I had a new fetish but have pretty well nipped that in the bud but I was starting to acquire quite a few Japanese chef knives. I have bought the equivalent of 4-5 complete sets of chef knives in the past 2-3 years. Normally though the first thing I would of stated was Jeeps but I am currently Jeep-less and am not going to look for another for a while.
I cook and I brew down on the bayou

Hiking and backpacking mostly. I also currently run about 26-30 miles a week. Artist by profession (well, graphic designer technically but I went to art school and do a lot of illustration). I play guitar sporadically and read regularly. I live to cook too ("live" is not a typo  ;)).

my dogs - got a labrador and an aussie/border collie mix (both rescues) - I just love hanging with them, taking to the park, etc. 

love cooking, read a bit (used to be a bookworm, now am trying to get back into it - damn modern society inducing me towards ADD), Crossfit and running.

Work, so I can afford the homebrew.  ;D  Actually I enjoy fishing, walking (it would be called hiking where majorvices lives but we just call it walking here ;)), gardening and most importantly, spending as much time as possible with the family.
If Homebrew & BBQ aren't the answer, then you're askin' the wrong questions... Cheers!!!

LOL! I think you would find the terrain behind my house surprisingly challenging even though it barely tops out at 2000 ft. Or maybe not.  8)

Ha I bet you're right.  We're at about 2,200 ft. and rolling hills, not mountains...  That's why we call it walking I guess..  ;D

I have found that it is not so much the elevation but the rate of ascent. ;)

Here ya there!!!  We used to live in Colorado Springs.  Hiked Pikes Peak once.  ONCE!  I was 20 years younger then.  Do miss the mountain hikes though!!!
