Offroad driving
Going to the pub

And there he goes again.

Do you ever contribute? The extra scrolling I have to do to read the other posts isn't worth it.

I'm the same as MerC, drink beer and chase girls, however, it was seven years ago when I last caught one! Either they run very fast or the ecess beer is giving me some "relaxed muscle" at the front. When I am not doing that I go fishing - again, prob 7 years ago when I last caught. Better keeping to the planes and socialising. Speaking of which, it is my AB) (FRA / FRF / EDDF), Germany">FRA trip soon, the best place to combine my interests.

Cheers, Steve.

Reading (a bit)
Photography ( a lot now)
Flying (try not too much, 'cause it's hurting my wallet)
Hiking (beautiful mountains around)
Spending time with friends
Not really into spotting myself, as I get bored easily after 30 minutes alone at the airport. However, I like the social side of spotting with friends, chatting between planes... etc...
