I have too many hobbies and seem to rotate from one to the other.  I love golf, I race 1/4 scale R/c cars and I have a couple old cars (52 Chevy and 72 Chevelle) that I tinker on.  Not to mention past with slot cars both track and drag racing.  With retirement coming in a couple years I am going to have to thin some stuff down. My daughter play travel softball year Roy d so I don't have a lot of time for any of them.  She will be in n college in 2 years so hope to have some more time other than watching her play in college.

Haha I have had the last 60 days or so off work... I have been learning Spanish as well.  No bueno, pero, estoy intentado.  

Hobbies... Golf, Cycling, hiking (not that frequent though), traveling (and not just to play golf... I kind of travel a lot and really enjoy it)... skiing/snowboarding.  And my PS4 gets a nice workout from time to time.  Especially since I havenít worked in 60 days.

Oh and cars.  I love cars.  Grew up doing HPDEs with my father.  And while I havenít been on the track in a few years, Iím still big into cars and love them.  Recently bought my first true Ďsports carí and drove it from Columbus Ohio to Phoenix.  Good times.

1) I'm a general-purpose tinkerer so any excuse to tinker is a good one. Golf is the main outlet, but there's also time/$ for RC trucks and quadcopters, home improvement, experimental cooking, anything DIY.

2) Anything that gets the family out of the house and away from our TVs/Phones, Beach/kites, disc golf, gardening, travel.

3) Gaming hobbies (chess, poker, card/casino games, dominoes, sudoku, sports betting, etc). I think they're great ways to practice math, logic, and career-relevant social skills like reading people, dealing with success/failure, handling pressure, and managing risk/reward strategically. And they're fun.

I also have a thrift-shopping and deal-hunting hobby to support the hobbies above and other family activities.

Itís nice to come across fellow RC enthusiasts!  I raced 1/12th carpet, 1/10 4wd Touring Car on carpet, and 1/8th nitro on-road for a while. I also have rc airplanes, helicopters, and slope gliders (SoCal thing).

Fishing. I like getting the kids out for local trout, bluegill, etc. Then, I make an annual long-range tuna trip. So far, all trips have been out of San Diego. Looking at some albacore up north someday too, and going after a grander bluefin out of Prince Edward Island. Nothing better than a freezer full of tuna, dorado and yellowtail...

Knives, guns, motorcycles, old cars, old trucks, RC.  Racing the motorcycles, cars, trucks, and RC.

Not so much a hobby as a pain in the arse I can't seem to get away from is coaching little league baseball and football.   The kids are great.   The parents need to be electroshocked.

I'm the asst coach for our local HS golf team.  Had an invitational yesterday and one of the opposing players had an argument with their parents on the course.  His mom went home.  Poor kid almost walked off the course.  Why can't parents just spectate?  Sad.

-Running, not really a hobby more of just something I just do.

-Working on golf clubs, I like to take things apart and put them back together.  I enjoy working on clubs more than playing golf.

I’d say golf has always been my most prominent hobby. Most of my family members are hunters and my dad even makes his own duck calls, I just never got into it.

Not sure if it counts, but my girlfriend and I are really big Stars & Mavs fans and attend a few games a month.
