Re: What are your other passions?

The knees won't let me ski anymore and I recently sold the Harley to my nephew.

These days it's working on the house, woodworking/wood turning, photography and getting out in the woods when I can. I also spend a fair amount of time building web sites.

Oh, and cooking which is why there's more of me these days!

The sail, the play of its pulse so like our own lives: so thin and yet so full of life, so noiseless when it labors hardest, so noisy and impatient when least effective." - Henry David Thoreau

Re: What are your other passions?

Activities aside from sailing; I like to travel, I was running regularly but I've been a lazy git the last year or so, cooking, and, believe it or not, my job.


Things that make me happy; Good friends, good whiskey, good food, the occasional good cigar, women, and other women who enjoy me and my other passions.

On occasion, I've had the chance to have everything in life that makes me most happy, thus I shall die a happy man.

If I'm lucky enough that the hits keep on a coming, I'll just die happier.

So far, so good.

Edit: I should have added "living beyond my means" to the list.

Re: What are your other passions?

Aside of sailing the two other things I'm most passionate about are snowmobiling and hunting. Although with the amount of time I have been able to devote to any of my hobbies the last few years you'd question my passion for any of them.

Here is a couple from snowmobiling. I'd post some duck hunting pics but I doubt pictures of dead birds would go over well.
