    Any other hobbies? I enjoy playing pool and will play in tournaments when I get the chance.
    A lifted 4x4 gets me to the sand, trails or camping if I get bored indoors.

    Reading, camping, hiking, hunting,fishing, and using my smoker.

    Also planning fix up a vehicle or 2. I fear I might have to scale back my plans on them as they've expanded over time.

    I'm a licensed pilot since I was 17, single and multilengine ratings.

    I have a '76 TLC FJ-40 that I bought in 1980, its my baby and currently going thru restoration.

    Raising the best 2 kids in the world. Takes most of my time and money but worth every minute and dime.

    I haven't really kept up with my other hobbies since I started reloading. My second love is my two Subaru's though.

    Besides guns and hunting, most of my hobbies revolve around wheels. 65 Mustang, 57 Chev 150, 47 Willys and a 65/6 Ford 4x4.
    Still have my street bike, but used to ride off road most weekends.

    I've been in my house one year longer than Mark W, and it will probably take me one more longer to get it finished!

    The last year, though, has found me spending tons of time with our grandson. He's now 18 months old and is the best thing to ever happen to me. Being a step-dad, I've never been closely involved with a baby that is developing into a walking, talking little person. I love it!
