    I used to golf, but cycling completely took that over. I work a lot, so I ride on my days off and run on work days to just try to stay in shape. The rest of my time is spent with my wife as our work schedules and weekends don't line up very well...

    You're some busy folks!

    Good to see some fellow shooters in the house. I like to make boom boom. Molon labe.

    I'll add one I didn't see much of in this growing list ... collecting old bootleg recordings, specifically The WHO bootlegs.

    Here is the info. I've got the proof on the way and expect it will release about mid to late March. A little over 300 pages. If you want to be notified when it lands, send me a PM and I'll place you on my email list. (no spam...it's just a notification, nothing else!)

    SIR LYLE’S DIG

    In 1950, explorer Sir Lyle Ashford wrote a famous letter to the Times of London in which he boasted of finding “…a bigger cache of treasures in Egypt than existed in King Tut’s tomb.” Two problems; Ashford was known to lie about sites and secondly, after that dispatch, no one ever heard from him again.

    Over sixty years later, archeologist Gavin Beechman uncovers the entrance to an unknown burial crypt high above the Valley of the Kings. In the deepest chamber, Gavin makes a discovery that electrifies the archeological community. What he does not find are any artifacts, critically important clues to the nature of the tomb. He feels compelled to track them down, a hunt that will take him on a journey from Egypt to the quiet, country lanes of the United Kingdom.

    Internationally known television correspondent Elizabeth Colino is confident the startling findings in the Middle East will provide the basis of an award-winning story, but is anxious about interviewing the man whose heart she broke. Following a news conference, Gavin refuses to share any information with Liz so she heads out on her own to fill in the details. She has the enormous resources of her network to back her up, but little expertise in the field of antiquities.

    Will Gavin and Liz remain on opposite sides of the search? Who will uncover the truth first, and what will it tell them about ancient history?

    SIR LYLE’S DIG will take the reader through Liz and Gavin’s emotional turmoil as they search for something that may never have existed and experience the apprehension of rediscovering what once did.
    [insert clever quote here]

    Not unless you drive onto the course and take a shot from the tees "ala" bike polo.

    And and then putt it in while doing a track stand.

    Sometimes I'll lash a putter and wedge to my rack and ride to a course 10-20 miles away and.... putter around for awhile (yes, I'm retired)

    I tend to get preoccupied with one thing and neglect others, so I'm sort of a one-hobby-at-a-time guy. But in the past, it's been guns/shooting, hiking, photography.

    Some good stuff in here. Seattle Forrest, thanks a lot for the pics. My dad was a rock climber/mountaineer when he was my age, and so during my younger years he would take me to the high Sierras every summer. I even have an ice axe and a set of crampons that I haven't used in years! Time to dust those things off

    Piano, particularly jazz, is my biggest hobby outside of cycling. I rent a 48" Kawai upright for my apt. and play weekly with a tenor player and a guitar player. We need to find a bass player! Right now it's my left hand lol. I also enjoy classical and am a huge Chopin buff, Debussy to a lesser extent. Do you have any favorite jazz piano players? Guess who mine is!!!! I also enjoy Ahmad Jamal, Bill Evans, Keith Jarrett and Herbie Hancock.

    So my list is:

    Cycling
    Piano
    Going out and drinking/socializing with friends.

    You guys are making me seem so boring and unwordly with all of your hobbies!!! Haha. I do spend a fair amount of time on the bike however, averaging slightly north of 10hr/week on the bike per year. This does not include recovery time (foam rolling/stretching), maintenance time ect.

    Bicycling is a hobby to me since I don't race. I am also a hobbyist motorcyclist (mainly touring) kayaker, boater, fisher, gardener and cook. I try to make it to the gym a few times a week too. I use the word sport more sparingly than most. I always get a chuckle out of people who call road motorcycling and fishing a sport.

    I don't smoke, but golf isn't golf without having some aiming juice.

    I'm a pretty active disc golfer (hence my forum name) and I play bass guitar in a few outfits around town. I'm also super jealous of Standalone's vinyl collection. Don't collect myself, but I love Jerry and Frank

    Hey I've been a competitive cat3 for years and I consider it a hobby!

    Figure that one out. It's only as big of a deal as you make it.

    You sure you're not a mountain biker and not a road cyclist?

    Which is one substantial step above people who get all 'judgey' about what others do with their lives.
