Hmmmm...well, I guess my list is not that far off, although I have a hard time placing them into any kind of order, as the priorities often change with the seasons...LOL
But for me it is:

Family
Friends
The cars, and at the moment definitely foremost the shark ;-)
The boat and fishing
All the computers and gadgets around the house, in the car or basically anywhere
The fish tanks
Traveling
Archaeology
...and there is so much more but that would just be an endless list...LOL

Oh, yea, BEER too....hahahaha...and certainly a good Bourbon and a nice cigar ;-)

The 928 is my hobby. Traded 20+ years of boating for it and have only regretted it on days that are calm and warm...then I just go for a ride. Only problem is, the family doesn't enjoy it as much as getting on the boat.

Other hobbies include online gaming (BF2, BF2142, Mech), browsing these forums........... and my pups.

Looks like everyone is too busy wrenching on their sharks to post replies...

I have way too many hobbies - I don't know how I ever have time to actually work to make real money - or even to sleep...

Driving my 928
Electrical Projects on my 928
Reading (classics + current interest magazines)
Writing (web content, technical publications)
Photography (digital & film) & Videography (digital only)
Hiking/Backpacking/Camping
Travel - US and International
Mountain Biking
Woodwork
Website Creation/Management
Hi Fi & Home Theater / Home Automation
Boy Scouts (with my sons)
DIY projects at home
Soccer
Computers
Cooking
Skiing (and this year snowboarding too)
Music (percussion/drumming)
Learning to ride my Unicycle (rather badly so far)

And yes the mix varies considerably (inevetably...) Gee now I know why I feel exhausted...

I think I'm going to have to retire imminently.... Bill B made be think about this anyway! If I did retire I'm not one of those who would have a hard time keeping busy thats for sure... JUST NEED MORE $$$

I'm still pretty hip on surfing the web for ****, but the 928 is right up there behind motorcycling.

Truthfully, i never considered my ownership a hobby. It's just something I do when I can and it makes me feel good when i do it.

I've narrowed it down to 3:

1. RC cars
2. 928
3. Mountain biking

1 & 2 switch based on the season. During the winter, I buy/build/sell rc items. In the summer, I use that money to feed the 928 addiction.

There is only one thing more important than my 928 and that is:

my sled dogs, talk about a life consuming hobby

Turn out the lamp, we found an honest man.

My hobbies change all the time, but lately:

Fixing/improving/driving my 928
Cleaning/maintaining my wife's Mustang
Spending time with the kids/family (coaching whatever is in season...)
Woodworking
Summers on the boat
Snowboarding (ok, once a season whether I need it or not, but what the heck)
Lately, trying to get my son into college (did that ) next trying to pay for it.
