Hobbies!

Besides camping (and I'm gonna guess fishing, off-roading, boating, etc...), what hobbies do you like to partake in? Which ones are you able to take on the road with you?

I'm a "dabbler". I don't have many obsessions, but I enjoy a whole variety of hobbies. I have to leave my gardening, canning, and sewing at home. But I enjoy bringing my knitting and Kindle with me when we travel. Unless it's too humid, I'm knitting when we are having downtime. And it's always with me in the car and hubby's driving.

I like to see the seasonal campers who have their container gardens. My husband teases that could be me in many years.

I build and fly radio controlled airplanes I sometimes take some things with me to work on plus we use the trailer to attend flying events.

Now, if Wifey were to respond to this post she'd swear getting under her skin was my favorite past time.

Camping is my hobby! If you consider sitting by a fire for hours on end, having a nice beverage, and enjoying a steak or three a hobby that is.
I also bring along my rc trucks for me and kids to play with. I bought all electric ones so they aren't too loud, but still pay attention, and if the neighbors are bothered, I'll usually put them away. But usually if i give them a turn, they don't seem to mind. Buzzing a small rc truck around that will do 65 usually makes people smile.

That's awesome.

Great thread subject.
I am into scale (really scale) 1/10 RC 4x4 trucks and love to take them with when we camp. Jeeps, Bronco, pickups etc. Really fun to run around in the sand at Lake Michigan. Great scale picture opportunities too - one of my other hobbies.
Here's a pic of one of my creations that is a real hit when I drive it around the campground. The trailer is scratch built and 34" long.



Fully finished interior too


It's not knitting and such, but still fun

What a great model!!

When we camp with our kayaking group, a few of them will have RC trucks. Scares the bejeezus out of my dog.

Being a Floridian, I mostly make gifts or lace/light shawls for accessory pieces. Here's one I'm most proud of.


The shawl, that is. Well, and the kid, too.

That is just Awesome ( and I don't say Awesome often). You did a great job and I bet Turbo thought it was real!

Wink Hobby

My hobby's are building doll houses, and "O" gauge Lionel trains. While the paint or glue is drying on the doll house, I am playing with the trains.
When we are out with the RV, I relax doing leather work.

And while Robert is doing leatherwork, I've taken up tangling. It's creative doodling. For those who find themselves doodling while talking on the phone or any other time, go online to www.zentangles.com and/or to www.tanglepatterns.com. It's a very creative outlet and I give a class on it at several rallies we go to. I've even had pieces in a month-long art show.

Nice thing about this is you don't need to make a major $ investment or have any art talent!
