    plastic scale model kits
    tinkering with computer hardware
    reading history of war
    reading on how things work.
    japanese manga and novel books

    I like tinkering and constructing I guess.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Is there any other worthwhile mode? And, No, it is not a much fun as it used to be. When you have Extra Class Operators who can't even program their HT's or have no idea what an isotropic antenna is/isn't. Or think that lowering the reflected Power from their antenna will make them "louder".

    So, my hobbies are

    Amateur Radio since 1959.

    Flying. Private Pilot SEL since 1977 but haven't flown since 2004. They tend to not let people with Heart Problems continue flying.

    Photography. Very Amateur.

    Dancing. Fairly accompished at it.

    Music. I dibble at playing the Guitar and I love to sing. Karaoke is fun.


    Cycling is my most recent hobby.

    Can this include the things I enjoy doing, but never seem to have time for?

    If so:

    Gardening
    Hiking
    Puzzles (all kinds)
    Writing
    Role Play Gaming

    Cycling is definitely #1 though
    The search for inner peace continues...

    Drawing/illustration -easily my main hobby after cycling
    Reading
    Photography

    Any other hobbies I list would be kind of grasping for straws, since I'm nearly always focused on bikes or drawing (mainly drawing bikes) or reading. I like photography but I simply don't do it that much anymore. In the past I've been interested in Origami, coin collecting, and even fresh water aquariums. I also collect German knives and, now, straight razors.

    Knitting (mostly hats and mittens) & crocheting (I'm making my mother an enormous granny square blanket)
    Photography (this is a new hobby)
    Scrapbooking & card making (this is new too)

    I'd like to add learning how to play the ukulele and playing video games into the mix.

    RRR and an Amen, brother. I got my first ticket back in 1987, and finally upped to the Extra (w/ code) in 1999 or so while I was in college. I am a little rusty because I only have 20m and it kinda blows right now, but I'm hoping it'll pick up soon and I can get going with it again.
