Aside from diving what other activities and interests do you all have? Here are some of mine:

Skiing, mountain biking, strength training, tennis, photography, hiking, listening to music, eating excellent food and learning more about wine. Wouldn't mind taking a cooking class or something too.

Unfortunately, most of this is rather pricey... and now I like diving which costs more than the rest of them (well maybe ties skiing).

golf... and of course

LE TOUR!

I own and fly a Cessna 150, target shoot, have my own color darkroom I play with from time to time, fly model airplanes and helicopters, sometimes do computer programming, administer a local ISP due to my Unix knowledge, lots more but not enough time to do a fraction of them.
<DIV></DIV>
<DIV>Work is a necessary evil to enjoy them, but most of all I play with my 4 year old daughter, she's a blast.</DIV>

Yeah work is evil. My fantasy is to wake up one day and be independently wealthy so I can just be busy with family, friends and my activities. What can I say, I like to dream... smileys/smiley24.gif

Also just realized the Oh come on now thread is basically the same topic as this one... oops.

Not much for me... I enjoy hiking when I get to go. The wife and I started getting into it last year, and purchased packs, tent etc.

We went once this year, when it was 36 degrees outside. We planned on going again, but it has been raining here in Oklahoma so damn much, I haven't felt like hiking and camping in mud.

On my spare time I help run a local Mustang Club here in oklahoma (Oklahoma Deadhorse Mustangs). The forum keeps me busy.

My two passions are diving and playing guitar. Right now I can't get enough of diving (from Cozumel two years running to local Dallas area scuba parks). And I just purchased the SeaLife ReefMaster Mini that I can't wait to try out.

Golf and boating seem to take up a bunch of my time. I have a 30' Regal that is essentially our second home. Or a floating liquor cabinet, whichever way you want to look at it ... :)

I dive when I can, but I also ride my motorcycle, work, shoot handguns, movies, baseball. I used to rock climb, and I'd love to get back into it. I just can't find the time.

My job doesn't suck and I get a fair amount of time off so it's all good.

Photography has always been a part of everything else I do, so it figures into my diving as well. I don't own the gear I'd like for it yet, but give me more time and it will come. Motorcycling is another biggie for me.

i like to travel (haven't as much as i wish i could).
and i love being lazy and waisting a day in bed with my girl, just watching tv and being as improductive as possible the whole day. but since i took up diving this happens less and less... cause i actually wanna get out of bed on the weekends to get into the water.

I have 8 surfboards in the house. I live very close to a decent (for the area) break. I paddle around on them a lot. On occasion I have managed to ride 2 of them.
I snow ski when I can. Mostly in the Florida suburbs. I like to cook and if I really get bored I have a set of golf clubs. I really enjoy hitting wiffle balls at speeders.

we got some ok cliffs to jump off here just got to work yourself up to jump off them and wear some shoes for the bigger ones (i dont dive off them im not that brave). Biggest one i went off was 40 ft, that was scary.

What else is there besides diving?!?!?!? I used to hike a lot, but since diving about the only thing I'll do is camp...and that's usually related to a diving trip! Seriously, diving has taken over. I just don't have time to do much else. It's a sickness....

Krakenn me mate,

Didnt know your into a bit of hunting. I thought the feral question was about some of the local population (human) around here. I dont get out to go shooting much as its a long drive to my families property (9 hours).

As for spearing. Still have my brand new 110cm Esclapez gun at home unsed.
4wd? Got me a Land Rover Dsicovery. Too good for bush bashing tho. Use my mates trail bikes for that.
