Thats the next step in my hobby. But I am wrestling with another part of my hobby that has always been a challenge - painting. I'm looking at compressors right now.

gotta have hobbies w/a 928 - mine's in a shop 4-6 mos/yr for the last 11yrs...

karate /judo - an undergrad fling thing to blow off steam/get a workout). replaced by sports training
weightlifting (4 days/week for 20yrs) /running (countless 5k and 10k stuff)

diving (divemaster rated) had a hobby-business in baja running dive trips in the cortez till late 2001
cycling (mountian and road) sponsored a cycle club
downhill skiing (raced w/USSA during undergrad yrs, season pass holder at mammoth 83-01)

target shooting / wabbit hunting /womanizing - til I had a kid/wife... too dangerous mixing guns and women w/a wife.. replaced by torturing the family - with outings to strange new places/outragous adventures hahahaha

"yardwork" - cruising the yard on my riding mower w/a beer, supervising workers from my 610 4x4 mule w/a beer or from the pool in my "floating throne" w/a beer

Nice Guzzi! My dad used to sell those back in the early 70's -- very nice machines! They shared showroom space with Laverdas, and off-road machines by Husqvarna, Monark, Penton, Ducati, Rupp & Zundapp cycles. I always loved the Goose sound.

I like this topic. I won't rate in any particular order because my priorities change all the time. Though I spend most of my time with Julie and Quinn, I don't consider them a hobby. So I won't list them. Same with cooking and drinking beer, though I do enjoy it.

My 928, of course
Acoustic guitar (my brother builds exceptional acoustic guitars Quick plug for Doerr Guitars )
Art collecting, Japanese Woodlock Prints are my favourite
My art sales E-business Quick plug for Recherche
Website creation Quick plug for BBP
Watching movies, love Hitchcock
Mountain Biking (I'm getting lame in my old age, so it's become light trail riding)
My job feels like a hobby from time to time. I really like it some aspects of it such as concept renderings

Well, I recently "retired" from competitive bicycling, which was a pretty big commitment. I suppose I actually retired from riding entirely. So now it's mostly:

the 928
skiing - recently took up telemark
politics - well, following it at least
doing nothing when I would have been riding my bike/travelling to races

Seems like a paltry list compared to some. there's lots of other little crap that I do, but don't consider a hobby.

My other main hobby besides the 928 is my 911, and tracking it several times a year. I've spent considerable hours rebuilding and improving on Porsche's fine design. I enjoy the wrenching almost as much as hanging it out at the track.

When I lived in San Diego on my sailboat, the main hobby was sailing.

When I moved to Texas 7 years ago. I built an airplane which I sold last year. Talk about a rush: that first flight after all of the hours and hours of work is unbelievable. It also tests one's mettle.

My wife and I also have travelled a fair bit of the world, where I get to sample my other hobbies: food, wine/beer/rum and Cuban cigars.

My 928 rates only distant second on the list of hobbies, both in time and fiscal expenditures. First is the Cellar. 1200 bottles of liquid assets resting quietly on thier sides in a tempreture controlled room. Very heavy on Amorones, Brunellos, Barolos, and Super Tuscans. All back to the late 80's. I get to enjoy the cellar all year while the 928 is a summer only indulgance. BTW summer is short in Vermont
