Aside from grilling/BBQ......what are your hobbies?

I'm a bigtime golf junky.....I wish I lived somewhere warmer so I could play all year!!! I live in the sh!tty midwest and still log 100 rounds every year.
I'm also a bit of an astronomy buff too. I enjoy going far away from city lights to enjoy the night sky with a telescope. I'm also a bit of a movie geek.......my mancave HT is modest, but I enjoy watching movies on friday night!! ....when you get old, you stay "IN" to watch movies...LOL The sound and picture is better plus there is beer and a 'pause' button for potty breaks....Hehehe

Re: Aside from grilling/BBQ......what are your hobbies?

I use to be more into golf, just don't seem to have the time. I enjoy hanging in my back yard on weekends, smoking a good stogie and having a few adult beverages or sometimes quite a few! I also enjoy coming here and busting Larry and Puff's balls! Well not Puff's so much, he don't have any!

No other hobbies to speak of other than trying to keep up with the maintenance of yards and house.

I won't say I'm a "Movie Geek," but I did see 38 of the 56 Oscar nominated movies, shorts and documentaries. Tied my best record picking 18 of the 24 winners, but lost the annual bet with my sister, she got 19 of 24, my first time beaten

Friday is grillin', beer, and movie night in my house. Most FRI-nights I'll watch 2-3......(I'm almost embarrassed to admit) LOL
I always make sure to have 1 the wife will watch with me. I reserve friday for new releases only(netflix)....if there is nothing good, then I wing it and watch something from my collection.

hey...that's not a bad thing!!

I pretty much make time to play and I have a system in place. I'm an early bird that plays at the crack of dawn on the weekends so 'being away' from the family isn't an issue because I'm always home before lunch. When the days are long......I play twice/week in the evenings too. I bring little_nut to the course to ride along every chance I can too. He just hits the occasional shot here and there and putts...he has a blast!!

I figure there are 4 weeknights every week.....the wife is happy to have me out of the house for 2 of them
I say 4 because friday doesn't count!!!!.....Friday is grillin'/movie night!!!! If I do play on a rare friday, it's because I cut work early enough to play and be home in time to grill dinner for the family

Grilling, smoking, baking bread, cooking in general, bird watching in my backyard, and reading books/magazines about all of the previous hobbies. I like movies and some Broadway shows, but I am very particular about what I watch. Winter Bone was my favorite movie this year.

Re: Aside from grilling/BBQ......what are your hobbies?

I hunt and fish. Don't hunt big animals any more, I'm too old to pack them out, but I got moose, caribou and bear in my youth. Now I just hunt waterfowl and ptarmigan. In the winter I read a lot. My wife and I also like to travel.

Does ptarmigan taste like chicken?

Aside from all the kids' activities, I like to fly and take them up. Have a small 2 seat airplane, nice and slow like a sunday drive.(look'n into a bigger/faster/stronger plane)

My daughter and I went up a while back.

PORN...that's about it.

Oh yeah... and photography, music/composition/recording, FPS games (I pwn), fixing computers, graphic arts, fishing, Celtic stuff....guess that's it for now.
