Other hobbies!

#1
In just curious what everyone else's other hobbies are. Me, I am a motor head. I'm building a drift truck that's also my daily driver. I build reptile cages, below is my personal one for my 5ft redtail boa. I have a breeding group of Crested Geckos. I go surfing and paddleboarding every chance I get. I do a little bit of fishing and that's about it.

This is kind of a fun one! Neat to read about your other lives! lol

Growing up on a ranch I never realized how many "Hobbies" I had... It was only when I was stationed in California back in the day that I began to notice...

You know people take their "4x4's" out just to find places to get stuck for no reason? Here its fixing fence in the river breaks, feeding cows in the winter, checking on calves in storms, looking for strays, Heck this spring just trying to get to the highway was a feat most 4x4's only dream of...

We still ride horses, grew up doing that. Just part of the job! Did you know there are people who pay good money just to go poke around on some old nag for a day? Who knew?

We always have a rifle in the truck, never know when you'll jump one of those pesky coyotes, not to mention the darn prairie dogs (of course, this one is often more fun than real work... ;)

I also ride a dirt bike a lot, great way to check rough country! I can't recall one time that I've ridden it just for pleasure...

So I don't feel the need to include the "Off Roading" "Horseback Riding" or "Dirt biking" in my list of hobbies (although the guns might be a little of both... ;))

My actual hobby (aside from RC stuff) would be Sailing
Learned to sail in Cali. I was even getting a skippers license at one point to live in the Caribbean but thats a whole separate story! I still own a sailboat and I actually hope to have a chance this summer to combine both my hobbies and get some cool videos in the process!

Hi! My hobby for the last time is online slots. I often choose some sites with bonuses like this website and choose from there and guess what? I earn some extra money for the new details

Brewing beer. Actually, I haven't had much time since moving to a new house last year. Hope to get a batch in this fall though.

And, yes, my setup is overly complicated for just a simple process. That's part of the fun.

Hope I didn't overstep the family friendly aspect...
Wow, that is really cool! I wish I try it some time :p

I’ve done a bit of rc trucks and boats and drones... like filming with my DJI spark. I got a couple of Traxxas trucks (E revo 2.0 and slash vxl) that I race at the local track. A big reason for the airplane is that they are cheaper than the trucks, or so I thought... thing is since they are cheaper you end up with a lot more stuff and I’m always wanting more😂 I play a number of instruments as well. This is a great idea for a thread btw!

I started a thread just like this a while ago on Psyborg account. Asking people to make their own threads to showcase the other things they do.

Narurally they filled my thread instead. I let it go when things went off topic and gor irrelevant.

My only guess is they stopped grading reading comprehension some time in the 90's so people dont even bother to read or understand things they just do their own thing and post whatever comes to mind.

Model Railroading since 1974... I've been priced out of the Hobby though... 😭😖
Love Music, and led a Band from 1981- 92. GREAT group of Musicians and Friends!!

Been into RC since 1984...
With a long hiatus. I got sick of the UNREALISTIC BLOBS with flat CF Chassis! 😖😠😒
Then just 5 years ago, I rediscovered RC - Crawlers and Scale Rigs!! ❤😁
These are 1/10th Scale MODELS, that can be pushed into HARD terrain!!

My 23lb Maine Coon, Gizmo! Still not fully grown! 😲

I like rocking out with my humble Squire, I've only been playing guitar for about eight months now and practicing daily for about six months, so far the hardest stuff I can play is Johnny B. Goode and the outro solo to Comfortably Numb. As of recently I've tried a bit of woodworking and so far I like it!!

(Five thumbs up to whoever know what race track is on display:p)

And if I get really bored I'll do a bit of drawing.

@PoorManRC Did you ever drag those Mustangs?
