I was actually thinking of starting a "what other hobby" thread. Never got around to it.

I've been getting into astronomy the last year. I thought photography had its headaches and expenses...boy was I wrong.

I've been bowling in leagues and tournaments for about 15 years. I was averaging about 200 up until the last year. Now its down to 190. Lots of distractions this year.

I also in the spring and fall fly stunt kites. I've only gotten a little better with it. Like any hobby, it takes time and practice.

I also hike in the spring and fall. My gf and I do day hikes. Usually we do one or two day hikes around the local area, and then once a year we like to do a small trip somewhere and do day hikes. Last year we did some hiking around the Gatlinburg/Smokey Mountain area. The year before that we did some hiking in North Georgia. This is one reason I ended up liking the mFT format is that the gear is more portable. Many of my hiking pictures turn out really well, but being limited to the cameras I was using, I couldn't print say larger than 8x10. I have a few pictures I'd love to make bigger, but just won't work.

There's a few things.
I am VP & chairman of the board for Friends Of The Forgotten.
We are an organization for the Pow/Mia issue.
I am a founding member of the Warriors' Watch.
This is a troop and 1st responder support group.

For fun I play bluez guitar in a few bands.
I love my Harley's, oh yeah...my wife also.

You mean Paul from TDPRI?
No, I didn't. I'm "The Snowman" over there.
We helped with the POW/MIA bike a few years ago.

Right now, family first, and therefor work as well, construction management at this point.

Other things taking up my time:
My bikes are pedal powered :tongue: and do not ask how many are in the garage

Inparticular I like steel road bikes that can go any where any time, and maybe even haul stuff. I do not really draw a line between my road and "mountain bikes".

When the surf is good I am out in the water.

I write with fountain pens, shave with a brush and soap, drive a VW TDI, and love to cook. A man of many niches, all with their own accociated clan.

I used to surf, and sail but skin cancer has chased me from my
outdoor pursuits. Now I spend more time on the computer
either playing around with images or using Adobe InDesign to
publish my GF's Democratic Newsletter..... :)

Oh yea... I'm a major movie nut....
