Other Hobbies?

What other things do you guys like to tinker with when your not spending money on your Jeeps?

Me? I like to play with computers! :o Building, repairing, and even customizing! My current one isn't so fancy compaired to the one that I'm going to build for myself. This one is just an off the shelf case... minus a number of lights that I removed. I added the blue LED fans and a fan controller to keep them quiet.


I have spare PC cases in the closet that I might use for servers as I just got a used Sempron CPU for free


Got a small "tackle box" full of extra wires and cables...


I even have a few custom parts that I might use for my next computer. That is a new fan controller, that I'm gonna customize, and that plate to the left is a "Power / Reset" pannel made of 6061 billet aluminum


My parents think I'm crazy, but when you see computers like this, it makes me want one of my very own.

That's funny, my tackle box is full of......fishing stuff. Fact I have 3 of 'em now, soon to have 4, each for a different type of fishing.

I write horror, have a couple of novels I'm working on and gobs of shorts I'm in process of trying to get published. I used to kickbox and grapple (ground and pound), but I can't anymore, so yoga's about it right now (I used to be an exercise nazi and fitness instructor and since I loved it, I consider it a hobby/obsession).

Nope I don't get tired of it. Besides, I'm only here to amuse myself.

Firearms and knives. All kinds of knives. I have a small-ish collection of folders/military pockets/old swiss/and old buck knives that my Uncle gave me before her passed, and 2 swords. 1 Samurai from Japan, and 1 Confederate Officers sword (replica I believe) I also have a small collection of Benchmade tactial folders and a newer Buck fixed blade

Only three guns here in MD with me. I have a .22S-L-LR Henry Golden Boy lever action, Yugoslavian SKS 7.62x39 in GREAT shape for a milsurp weapon (Has a bayonet and gernade launcher too ) and a Bersa Thunder 380Auto which has seen over 3,000 rounds, 1 FTE and no there issues. I love that little cheap gun The rest of the rifles/shotguns/pistols are on my family farm in WV

PICS? Negative. I got banned from Myspace and a few photo storage website just for having pictures of them on the ground.

I know what you're talking about but I can't remember the name.

But I want one.

The only problem is the actual karambit is double bladed making it illegal. The training one is used as a control device by the police. I trained with an officer for a little bit and it's very effective. There was no way to resist when the person using it knows what they're doing. Even without blades, it's a hell of a weapon.

I'm pretty partial to the folding ones, I might pick one up one of these days.

I like camping, fishing, hunting/guns, Ham radio, playing in the water, gardening, spinning and weaving (fiber crafts, not... whatever perverted ideas you perverts come up with ), beading, metal working/jewelry making, other crafty stuff. I used to go kayaking and whitewater rafting but that was before I had kids.
You know, basic girlie-girl stuff.

Ever try lampworking, Amy? Very cool. You make glass beads. All you need is a torch, some tools, and glass. Don't even need an annealing kiln.
