View Full Version : What do you do when you're not working?

IE, what hobbies/interests do you have?

I like to shoot pool, read books(I have a ton of them, mostly unread), hanging out with my buddies at the bar for a few beers, riding ATVs and dirt bikes... I also enjoy radio control aircraft.

How about you? What do you do to take the edge off after work or on the weekends?

Dustin, I have a Bestler mandolin. Got it on Ebay for $50.00. I've been playing for 3 years. Celtic and Scottish melodies are what I like to play and hear.

In the winter time I'm a speed freak on snow skiies not many people catch me or my brother in law. I'm always taking college courses at night. I'm trying to sell my house so I can find another project.
