Swimming. I love swimming. Pools are really a large part of your delight and they offer a cooling ambiance wherein you can refresh yourself and get rid of irksomeness. Its a great form of exercise and keeps your weight down.
Do you have to chop a hole in the ice before you swim?
We 'ice swim' here in the winter ...... very refreshing after playing 'ice hockey' .... :icon_ rasta:

hobbies, well I many times think I have or had too many
started off with MX bikes, which lead me to snowmobiles to extend my season to ride, raced both
then at same time was into building ff road trucks, then some smaller rock crawling, and modified a lot of trucks
got stuck way too many times
then got into mud bog racing , from weekend deals to getting into it on a bigger
which led to building some super HP mud machines, which then turned into monster trucks
even made the cover of a few magazines many yrs back
all the while I was also into shooting sports, got real big into 1,000 yard shooting, custom guns and then that got me into hand gun matches, then shotgun sports, skeet, sporting clays, and then sub gun, as I got into class 3 weapons, was even a dealer for many yrs
which also lead me to training in shooting sports of all sorts of weapons, from handgun/rifle's sub gun's, shotguns, and even archery gear!
think for yrs I enjoyed training more than shooting, or just got burnt out on shooting gun, was maybe shooting a few thousand rounds a week for yrs, millions of rounds over the yrs and then some I bet!(wish I had the ammo now I shot, with today's prices, Man I'd be sitting pretty LOl)

I also was BIG time hunter, traveling all over the USA , Alaska included and Canada,
hunting as many states a yr as the budget allowed most yrs 3 to 5 states
I also was into farming and have done part time farming for the past 22 yrs, which I still enjoy
I played with RC cars and trucks too for a little while and then I have ben playing with street bikes for 30 yrs or so, had a need for speed, and played with a lot of sport bikes, and hopped them up,
Had a love for upland game hunting which lead me into hunting dogs, have a ton of experience training and hunting with them, with Lab's being the dog of my choice
also hunted upland game all over the USA, fav spots being the Dakota's
I have had too many hobbies, and have more stuff than I know what to do with now, due to them, amazing how things pile up as time goes by!

I'm sure I left some things out here, too many things I'd had interest in , and I followed up on pretty deep most things too!
if My budget was better I would still be doing a lot more now too! as I am sure we all would

I used to enjoy hunting and fishing. But times have changed. I cant afford all 3 hobbies. So mud and water riding is my entertainment. But I swear cleaning a deer or a big mess of fish used to be easier than cleaning 200lbs of mud off a quad!

Anything outdoors - hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, skiing, whitewater and flatwater kayaking.

I live in a log cabin, so home maintenance is a daily job. Landscaping and gardening go along with this.

Mushroom and wild edible plant foraging.

Last but not least, playing with my 5 dogs.

Sheesh, after reading through this thread I suggest a few new topics:

Looking to get a life
Arguing over stupid crap that is totally meaningless
Trying to grow out of adolescence without being beaten up on a daily basis

I love to tinker with anything with an engine. Whether it's my car, my project truck (65 Dodge D100 stepside on modern Dodge Dakota frame), any of my grandpa's old cars or trucks that need some TLC, lawnmowers, atvs, etc...

I also enjoy biking (bicycle) when i'm away at school. Unfortunately I can't take all my projects with me!

Rebuilding old Honda minibikes from the 70's. This minibike thing is a sickness . . . they follow me home. People bring them to me. Once people know you are into old minibikes, they look at you differently . . . . LOL. My wife and daughter think I'm nuts but my ten yr old grandson is now catchin' the sickness, too.

People usually smile when I'm in the parking lot buying milk or bread and they very often will start up a conversation about what they had as a kid. Anybody out there got a 1971 Candy Sapphire Blue Z50A hardtail they want to get rid of cheap? How about a red or yellow ST90 so that I can collect the whole set of colors?

Uh . . . um . . . I need help . . . .
