Hobbies

Posted 12 May 2008 - 11:52 AM

When you're not rocking the keyboard, what are some of your hobbies?

I used to fly R/C airplanes, play paintball, geocache, and a few other odds and ends, but I haven't had much of a hobby per say lately.


So what do you do and how did you get started? What's the cost involved and what's the reward (fun, relaxing, etc?)

I just recently got into RC Helicopters. Ive got a beginner chopper that is fun as hell. I really want to get into it though and get some larger scale and maybe gas powered birds. They are actually very difficult to fly as the advanced ones operate on the same physics and stuff as a real chopper which makes it really challenging and fun. However, it will put a dent in the checking account, but no more than computers I guess.

Heres the one Ive got right now. The two main rotors make this one good for beginners, but my next will likely be a 6 CH capable of 3D Aerobatics and inverted flight.

Oh where to start.


I used to be HUGE into R/C things. Same with model rockets.



Now I mostly freebord. I am actually in the process of organizing an event in Huntsville for the Freebord World Tour '08 with a fellow local rider. Basically they are going to send us tons of schwag to hand out and keep for ourselves. I'm pretty stoked.


Also music. Mainly guitar. Guitar and Freebording. Thats all I do.

Once upon a time I was into collecting and playing card games (yes, Yu-Gi-Oh, and the such). My kids are still into the games, and I do still play with them from time to time, but Magic is still a bit advanced for them yet.

Right now it's XBOX 360. Other than that when I'm not coding (yup those 21 minutes a day) I read a lot. So far Ive read 77 of Dean Koontz books, those in his name and under his various pen names.

What do you mean hobbies? You can do stuff besides rocking the keyboard? I wasn't told that! What have I been missing for the last decade? Can someone catch me up on what is going on outside that... glass... thingy... I mean what you call it? Window?
