Re: What are your other passions?

My Christian Faith (I'm an elder at my church);Genealogy, and History. I had two GG Grandfather's who fought in the Civil War and I'm the Commander of the Department of Kansas, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War. I spend a lot of time marching in parades and hanging out in cemeteries.

I'll be leading my family in a tour of our family stomping grounds in southern Ohio this July at our reunion. First time they've ever seen where we came from. I'm looking forward to seeing their faces as I tell the story. Did I mention I love history?

That's pretty cool. I am a history buff too. I have my GGG(?) Grandfather's discharge papers from the Union army AND the mini ball he was shot with! How cool is that?!

Agree . Especially for wedding, but is not my cup of tea. I have not surrendered to numerous calls. I doubt I will shoot one.

Re: What are your other passions?

Fishing, hunting, hard drinking, chasing younger women, hang gliding, scuba diving...NO WAIT! That was when I was 20 years old and single.

Now, 52 years later, sailing singlehanded to the Florida Keys, drinking margarettas, watching the young gals walk by the boat, basking in the sun, snorkeling on the reef, still read lots of books, constantly fix things on the boat, and for exercise, ride a 26-inch bicycle to the grocery store, post office and liquor store.

I still play lots of music and sing to the ladies, but that's what I do for a living. Yeah, I know, but it's a fun job.



Cheers,

Gary

Re: What are your other passions?

Great thread! Quite the varied group we have here!

My main hobby now (or is it another job?) is my 5month old son.

Other hobbies/passions:

1. Medicine, particularly medicine with limited resources and infectious disease.
2. Backpacking and bushcraft
3. International travel
4. Hurting myself with power tools (old boat and an older house)
5. Homebrewing, including homebrewing on the boat. (Drinking a homebrew now)
6. Macro-Economics. (nerdy I know, but it gets a lot less nerdy when your stock portfolio goes up and up and up... )

Hobbies I used to do more of and would do more of if I had more time:
1. Archery
2. Shooting and reloading
3. Rock Climbing
4. SCUBA diving.

Re: What are your other passions?

Our kids are probably our biggest passion. Even as they're leaving home, that doesn't slow down(they're home right now from college).

After a lifetime of skiing, I took up snowboarding at 54(and joined my wife already snowboarding). That's put the excitement back in getting on the mountain. Our kids do as well.
Winter is a great season to if you're active outdoors.

We're passionate about traveling and do as much as we can. Photography is a passion, so is writing these days(good to hear others enjoy it). I love the creative process it forces me into. Writing is a lot like my work, design/building(I have a passion for that as well). It starts easily enough and then it gets harder. But if you get through it, it's very rewarding to come up with something that you and sometimes others, appreciate.

There's only so much time for sailing in our lives and the balance here in Maine seems just perfect. I'm on the water edge every day even in winter so sailing is a part of the off season here. Boats are being built all around me here.

This area of coastal Maine is such a potent mix of what it is I love about sailing, boats, the coast, that our season is quite a feast.

Don't. I used to make my living with a camera. I did one wedding and will never do another.
