I race from time to time, only to get my butt handed to me by teenagers. I still love it though and really don't care about being very good.

Besides being the 2-up person on the back of our BMW I enjoy Tatting, which is a form of lace making and Rubber Stamping cards and projects.

I've got way too many hobbies and pastimes for my own good - or wallet.
Besides music, both listening and playing, I'm also getting into building guitars. Well, putting them togther from parts, more like.
I have a fretless bass in the works, currently working on the color coats. I just shot the sunburst this morning, hoping to get color on the back a little later this afternoon.
Besides music... I bicycle - have done several centuries over the past few years, but not this year - damn life getting in the way...
sailing, golf, skiing / smowboarding.
Enjoying / brewing beer, (will soon get into winemaking as well...)
Cooking - I'm prepping for a tailgate this afternoon / evening for the Tom Petty show tonight. Making sirloin tips in my "kitchen sink" marinade, grilled asparagus, homemade guacamole, homebrewed beer... and all the trimmings to go with (we do this RIGHT)
I can probably find a few more things...

You're a busy one! I made some Montepulciano Italian red about 7 years ago for Christmas. It came out pretty good. I bought the juice and fermented in a glass container. Totally worth the effort!

The problem is deciding what to give up to free up time, money and space/clutter...
Oh, definitely. It's just a matter of digging through the clutter.
Amazing what 15 years of living in the same oversized house allows you to accumulate....

Just attended my 22nd Rush concert - so that's a kind of hobby I guess. If I could afford it, I'd go to half a dozen shows each tour. In fact, for the 30th anniversary tour, I did just that cause I could afford it!
My other hobby is writing and very occasionally performing stand up comedy. Bah rump ch!

Yeah, on the R30 tour I saw them three or four times, on S&A three, this time once. $$ has been a little tight. 9/2 is my 44th B'Day and I hoped to go to the 9/2 or 9/3 show but I'll have to see them in my mind's eye at home ;(

Autumn is here in a few days! Time to clean the studio and move indoors on the cool damp days. Time to take out the stamp collection and work on the trains! Time to wait for the perfect sunny day to drift up the Nissequogue River and admire the colors. Time to record those songs and write some others. Time to celebrate the harvest!

Hey Fuzzy - what do you write? Very interested...

Yes! I agree...so many hobbies, so little time!
I used to really enjoy "N" gauge trains when younger but haven't dabbled in a looong time. Nowadays, between exercise hobbies (bicycling, running), backpacking, motorcycling, playing music (drums, keys, guitars, flutes, etc.), cooking, photography, and refurbishing percussion instruments (working on a 1930's Deagan marimba and a Ludwig & Leedy set of vibes), I am slammed! I wish i could retire so I could really do justice to these hobbies!
