    I am always looking for new hobbies and have discovered one or two from threads here on TSD. As of right now, I like collecting and using fountain pens, and collecting and trying out fragrances. I am just curious what unusual hobbies you guys might have.

    Nothing really too 'unusual' —aside from collecting an inordinate amount of shaving paraphernalia, but some of my hobbies include:
    • guitar playing
    • audio gear
    • wood working
    • charcuterie/BBQ/Cooking
    • illustration

    Well, let,s see...
    - Archery
    - reading
    - movies
    - walking / hiking
    - music (almost all styles, classic, New Orleans jazz , pop, rock, electronic, folk, film scores, etc.)
    - sailing (unfortunately no cash for a sailboat)
    - I like owning vintage things (got a 17th century weather station, a replica of a 16th century clock, facsimile editions of 13th and 17th century books, three old editions of Charles Dickens, some 19th century heirlooms, old sewing machines)

    - oh yeah, almost forgot, shaving!

    I always wanted to try woodworking, but I have no room for all the equipment. I also want to build a smoker soon and try my hand at barbecue.

    I used to go hiking quite a bit when I was stationed in Hawaii. And I also love all kinds of music, and antiques are very interesting to me. I love to just browse around my local antique shops.

    I enjoy hiking and photography. I love how photographs can show something you walk past every day into something that takes your breath away. I really want to get into backpacking as a way to extend hikes. I had plans to try car camping but my wife got an opportunity to deploy rather short notice so it never happened.

    I ride motorcycles as well. I have a 2006 Yamaha FZ6, but my dream bike is a Victory!

    My old bike that I just sold was a Suzuki Volusia 06, great bike but didnt have the power I needed while commuting on the highway. My dream bike was also a victory and the crossroads to be exact, had to jump on it when the baby was born as I was informed by many parties it would be my last big gift.

    In no particular order:
    • Photography - I have a degree in photography and worked in the field for about 5 years. That was long ago, though.
    • Music - Listening to all types except opera and hip-hop. I love classic rock, jazz of all types, the blues
    • Music - I play guitar, bass, and ukulele. Ukulele is my current passion.
    • Motorcycles - I've brought a couple of bikes back from the dead and made them roadworthy again. I love vintage and older bikes. I currently ride the 1993 Honda Nighthawk 750 that you can see in my avatar.
    • Home DIY projects - I love doing pretty much any type of home improvement project.

    Having 4 kids and now 4 grand babies my free time has been limited. Shaving is my "me" time. I do like going for a hike, walking along the beach. When I have time, I love going to concerts.

    - I spend a good deal of my free time play Eve Online, which is a spaced-themed MMO (think open-ended space sandbox).
    - I really enjoy my wet shaving ritual. I consider it my time of daily silence\meditation. I can relax before the day starts.
    - I like to read a good deal. Mostly non-fiction. My undergrad major was early-modern British history, which I enjoy.
    - Gym five days a week (I'm fat and I know it--trying to remedy it).

    Collecting Fire King Jadeite dinner ware, my wife and I started this about 15 years ago and just have a couple oatmeal bowls to find.

    Caving with a couple friends, too old and stiff to do very challenging caves, always good to get underground.

    And still enjoy cooking, gotta keep my gut full.
