I forgot cooking (and eating). I guess I don’t really consider it a hobby, since I do it just about everyday.

I play soccer in various leagues year round. I used to do a fair bit of rock climbing and bouldering - even built a wall in my garage - but I find I don't have the time for that really. I enjoy the various water sports, skiing, wakeboarding and kneeboarding, though not as much as I once was able to. In the winter I try to get a ski trip in. Trying to get back into playing hockey in a rec league but again time is a factor.

I guess its one of those things where you have to make time for what you really want.

Those aren't hobbies - they're vocations.

Fountain pens. I write a lot, so I really get squirrely about possessing and enjoying good writing pens and fine stationery.

Only for those with more time. I only partially submerge for the basket weaving. The screen doors sometimes have one big hole instead of many tiny ones, and my ice is some of the thinnest around.

Off of the top of my head:

-cycling
-hiking
-skiing
-swimming
-PC gaming (mostly simulation games)
-home brewing craft beer, trying new craft beer, thinking about craft beer, looking at craft beer, smelling craft beer. I really like craft beer......
-growing hot peppers over the summer and making my own hot sauces and pickled hot peppers with them
-coming up with new recipes
-I don't buy many anymore, but I used to collect men's fragrances. I still do enjoy them a lot but damn it's expensive to like them!
-camping
-drawing
-tinkering with things (I'm very mechanically inclined)
-collecting mid-century modern furniture and art (I also collect vintage airline posters)

I may be forgetting a few.

Aviation, Simulator PC games (I’ve built a nice setup for Farm Sim and Euro/American Truck Sim) and playing musical instruments, which takes up most of my time.
And this, ladies and gentlemen, is the very first Fokker airplane built in the world. The Dutch call it the mother Fokker.

Aviation, reading, writing (actually working on a book), traveling, collecting model planes (die cast usually), collecting coins and paper money, conversations, history...I wonder if I have too many hobbies.

Cycling
Movies
Used to rock climb a lot, but the arms aren’t what they used to be.
Backpacking.
Gardening, that’s kind of replaced the rock climbing since retirement.
Puzzles, more to pass the time on cold winter days.
Road trips. We’ve taken up hitting all the national parks as a bucket list item. We see two or three a year.
Welcome to Nothingburgers. May I take your order?

I have a family, I don’t really remember what hobbies are...

I guess my hobbies are singing along to frozen, feeling tired and pretending I’m using the bathroom so I can post on A.net.
