After postng in the Dirt Devils thread i'm just wondering what everyone does here apart from cars and puters.
Me, well as you would have figured Mountain Biking, plastic model building RC cars. But i must confess i can't do all these hobbies at once as i don't have the funds. :( :( :(
My other wheels:
Mountain Bike: Avanti Ridge Rider SE
RC Car: Toyota HiLux Monster Racer (Electric)
Recent Model Builds: McLaren Ford 1993 F1 and a Ford V8 Indy Engine (haven't build the car yet):rolleyes:
A half built Lambo LP500S.

Besides being a (Tick)Ford obsessive, as well as being obsessed with all great cars and driving, I collect 1/18 scale model cars of which i have 55 (this makes storage fun). Iam also into going clubbing and to pubs and bars with my mates (and the all other naughty associated activities which go on in clubs etc). I love cricket and Aussie Rules Football (i wanna get fit and start playing footy again cos i haven't played since i finished high school). I'm a weekend hack on the golf course. I like to get out to the go-karts whenever i get a chance. And I love going to the cinema and watching piss funny comedies. And I avoid study wherever possible!!!!!!!
Fishing without a doubt.. Fresh or salt water I'm up for it. :D
Making stuff.. from shelves to benches to signs.. I love to tinker in the shed..
Alpine/Coastal Driving.. Is there a better way to spend a sunny day??
My grass!!!.. Get back home and my mates killed it!! Bastard!! :eek: We have little comps.. like who's got the greener grass on a certain date. Pretty sad isn't it.. Then again the prize is an all expences paid BBQ (& piss up) so it's ends up being quite fun!! :D
...and I've got a nifty little coin collection too.. Been building that since Moses was a lad..
Alcohol. I drink lots of it, collect beer bottles from around the world (full ones - I buy 2, taste one, shelve the other) and shot glasses, also seem to have a stubbie holder collection growing of it's own accord. When I travel overseas, I attempt to try every beer I can find. I visit pubs often.
Music. I've done just about everything except play in a band - organised gigs, run a record label/mail order (now shut down), release a fanzine and managed bands. I go to gigs all the time, which crosses over into the alcohol hobbie (gigs are often in pubs.)

Anything 'fun' ie/ using kids as an excuse to use the playground equipment.
Cleaning the house (not really a hobby but I seem to do a lot of it)
Doing puzzles (ie/ crosswords etc) to keep my mind exercised
Jelly wrestling :D (that one's for you 'minge)
I enjoy racing Cat's (the boat type) I race when I can and have a few prizes on the shelf.
Model Car collection, have most of the Biante Collection (XY's even torana's), have stopped now as it got too expensive.
Power Boats all types
Fishing on a nice day out at sea with a few mates and some beers
Water Sking, Kneeboarding, barefoot water sking (although this hurts too much when you fall:() anything that involves getting towed behind a boat
