Re: What are your other passions?

Flying (any type of plane) is my first love but since I can no longer pass a medical I sail that is my #2 love. I was lucky that I was able to fly for 50 years

Nice shots Rockdawg but they all have the same look on their face.

Re: What are your other passions?

Reading. Lots and lots of reading, in the company of my wife and two Maine Coon cats.
Travel (kinda goes without saying, as a sailor).
Home renovating.
Slowly learning to play nylon string guitar.
Learning something new -- always have some class our course I'm taking.

Re: What are your other passions?

Hmmm......?
Usta enjoy motorcycling
Usta get out shooting... a lot!
Usta do a lot of home renovation/improvement

Now I'm practicing for retirement. I'm still playing guitar and keeping up with my small social circle. Planning the sailing season and preparation of the boat is foremost.

Sold the scooters. Sold (most of) the gunz'n'stuff and the house is officially on the block.

Looks like I hafta add "going whole hog" to my list of other things to do/done

Re: What are your other passions?

Interesting thread.

Don't they change with time? Some remain constant and some are age related. My kids belong to the latter group. 7 adults with families of their own. Big priorities with boundless passion. Time consuming, too That is the reward! I count travel as an important passion. The kids enable that.

Sailing has been with me since my first sailboat at age ? 8 or 9 when I got my hands on a wooden pram. Water based activities are certainly dominant. Fishing, Canoeing, SCUBA, swimming, I grew up on the water and it has kept me living close my whole life. Canoe racing became a passion in the 80s and lingers. The Admiral bought us a graphite "pro boat" for her 60th. A JD II. It is a beautiful double ender. and joins a stable of 7!

Hunting went by the way. Not sure why. Racing motorcycles did too and I know why! Hiking is still important. With the AT near we spend weeks camping in the woods every year. Skiing, both down hill and X-C. Cycling, gardening, designing and building stuff. Writing is coming back now that retirement is here. I don't own a car built in the 21st century. Working on them is almost as much fun as working on the boats.

I am getting ready to build another house. Designing it and planning the work takes real passion. This will be the last project like this for me. We plan to rent it for the "crazy months" on Mount Desert Island and spend that time doing the other stuff.

Re: What are your other passions?

Horse back riding, this is at a field trial:

Field trials from horseback, running trained hunting dogs to a national event
Below is me on the horse, the competitors dog behind and left of me, and right forward (white dot) is my dog out front.

and early in the season last year.
