    So, what do you do with the REST of your free time?

    Assuming that you have someone telling you that you spend too much time with your computer...

    What other hobbies and activities occupy your free time?

    There is other free time?

    Heh, seriously, this takes up most of it. If I do have any left over after family, I suppose amateur radio would be next in line.

    I'm a car guy too so I go to a lot of meets and car shows with friends as well as cruises in the warmer months.

    I do a lot of gaming and reading as well. I guess I'm a hybrid motor head/computer geek.

    +1 Hoikie, what free time?

    Family, Sports (Volleyball, Softball, Basketball), and I guess gaming.

    Ha! I do a lot of reading, and I'm into theoretical physics, so I try to watch all the free web lectures I can find. I also play soccer.

    I used to enjoy my free time. I sit in front of a computer all day. When I get home, I have no desire to sit at the computer - I love gaming though!! Brings up a problem I guess.

    I'm retired so I have a lot of free time. When I'm not messing with computers, I'm reading. I also fly ultralights. Since I lost my medical 15 years ago it's the only way I can legally fly; except for Flight Simulator, which I enjoy many hours a week. Moving to Florida next year, so I'll add boating and fishing to the list.

    Awesome man! That's one aspect of shooting I still haven't broken into.

    Current arsenal: H&K USP in .45ACP, Ruger P345 in .45ACP, Walther PPK in .380Auto, Weatherby Mark V Accumark in .257 Wby Mag, Savage 10 in 7mm WSM, and S&W M&P-15 in 5.56 NATO.

    Guns are fun!

    I travel for business, mostly on the road; for instance, I logged 1100 miles from Monday thru Wednesday this past week. So when I'm home, I stay close to home. Wife, kids, grandkids all keep my attention first. Then fixing all the stuff that breaks while I'm gone or making check-marks by the honey-do list. After that, I make it up as I go. I have a good shop to work in: wood and metal. Gave up the auto stuff as I no longer have to care for 4 cars as a necessity when the kids were home, just a car and p/u now, and my son-in-law has an auto repair shop, woo hoo ! Gardening, some shooting, a lot of reading (astronomy and cosmology), politics and humor (kinda the same aren't they?). Gave up the guitar when I trashed a couple of fingers, gave up sports when I trashed my knees playing sports, gave up cooking when I got married as my wife is awesome in that department. Ah, the memories....
