Default OT: What do yall do when your not working on the car or at work?

I stay busy, im sitting here hoping the weather is nice so I can get out to the lake this weekend. I recently bought some windsurfers and am trying to pick up the sport.

Im also an avid whitewater kayaker, and really enjoy snowboarding. I spent about 10 days in Colorado this winter. It was pretty fantastic. Other then that im a pretty boring.

Sheet Metal forming, Mechanickin.... Raising my in-laws, Powder Coating, Making messes, cleaning up messes..... what else is there? Oh yeah... a fair amount of time spent in Doctors' Waiting areas.... Since the stroke last October... a lot of that crap. I attend as many car shows each year as I can.... some are actually of the Aircooled VW type... most are not model/brand specific though. About to learn Hydrographics to go with the Powder coating as well.....

I am an old retired fart and work in my shop 5-6 days a week building and restoring aircraft. I fly a homebuild airplane that I designed and built and have another aircraft that I designed about 1/2 finished.

No, but I read it to her. She is pretty awesome. Married almost 10 years. I have no idea how she has put up with all my crap for nearly 16 years. I figured she is blind too as she married a guy that looks like Shrek's special brother....

There are things to do other than work and work on cars?

I piddle around the house, yard stuff, house stuff, etc., do stuff with my boys, read too much stuff on this computer, etc. I read books when I can, ride bikes when I can. I'm looking for the right piece of virgin land to buy and that will become my next hobby.

Geez, I'm boring.

If I ain't working on hot rods I'm either playing softball, working in the yard,hunting, or playing and building toys for my little girl. Do just about anything as long as it involves being outside.

Travel or plan the next trip. I only work school terms so I spend three months "away". Sleeper Trains here let you sleep as you travel and give you more time where you want to go. But I also leave China to other parts of Asia. That will change soon. (9 weeks to go to retirement!) Then I can !!

I spend a fair amount of time on home reno stuff - house was built in 1905 and I'm trying to make it last another 100-odd years.
Some amateur blacksmithing, lots of amateur photography and spend a lot of time with our three dogs - two Engish Springers and a Great Dane pup. Scooping up dog shit occupies a LOT of my time. :)
Oh yeah, also a big Nascar geek so I spend a goodly amount of time following it.

Currently, when not working on car, or at job. I can be found in the garden tending to the edibles. Otherwise, I can be found in garage. Current new project on the bench is a cigar box guitar. Just finished my first one. It plays O.K., but I have many ideas on how to improve my build quality. Unfortunately I can not post picture at the moment.

Been working on a novel for about 22 years now. It's pretty detailed so I keep going back and tweaking, adding, changing lines. Still have a lot more to write but I have about 700 handwritten pages I need to get in the computer.
What's your book about?

Play bass in a rock and blues band and spend a lot of time hangingout and helping out on HTC Elevate, the online, invite-only community for 2000 of the top users of HTC phones. A sort of market research driven user community with a common purpose.

I also have another job that I call my hobby too .. still software, just not well-paid :)

In decent weather, spring, summer and early fall, Take care of yard, mostly mow around all the projects, wood work or paint. In crappy weather, surf online.
During late fall, winter, patiently wait for weekends to go hunting/camping.
