I guess some would argue jeeps are a lifestyle more than a hobby, but anyways......

I thought it would be fun to hear what other vices other people sink their hard-earned cash into. I’m sure there are plenty of gun folks, hunters, fishers, etc. So let’s hear it!

I am a bit of a movie junkie, audio gear, and animals! I go to Phish concerts as much as humanly possible!

I have 2 dogs with one on the way (Dogo Argentino (David Bowie) Boston Terrier (Boy George) and Puli on the way

I have an 8’ Saltwater Reef tank.

We have a Skink (Matilda) of some sort, and a rabbit (Freddie Mercury) of some sort (you can tell how involved I am in those)

I have a Caiman named Liza Minelli too.

I am a golfer, and honestly just hate the winter, so I’m “seasonly active”




Who does what here?!?

I used to be into Reef tanks years ago as well, I designed and built many a Wet/Dry filters and lighting systems.
Now I just collect guns, they don't die on you and go up in value if you get into them for the right price. lol

Well I managed a small hobby store for a while so I got into a lot of hobbies. I had to quit because I was always broke. lol
I'm into G scale trains and r/c cars mostly but I did many more there. I like them all really.
I have several aquariums of fresh water fish. Havent gone to the salt side. Mostly due to cost and time.
I enjoy woodworking using antique tools.
Last but not least is Lego.

You can make money on coral colonies........ or so I hear! I have never sold anything! Better to trade for the newest “flavor of the month”!

Vintage audio is a favorite of mine. Love vinyl and restoring old vintage gear. Archery is another hobby I spend too much money on. Between the compound bows, gear, hunting, 3D competitions, etc...

But none of them compare to Jeeping. Building Jeeps, wheeling Jeeps, the community of Jeeps, etc...

All kinds of things take all my spare time, when I'm not coaching little league and tennis I spend some time metal detecting. I also have a 125 gallon "native" fish tank, and a decent size purple martin colony on my property. Also have a flock of hens and my son has a ball python. I also restore vintage cast iron cookware. Jeep, Polaris Sportsman 570, and have an 86 Chevy 3/4 ton 4x4 that is currently in the body shop getting a paint job. Oh yea, fishing and hunting too......

I spend a lot of time in the back yard. Collect rare and unusual plants (Jeeps help get to places to find them).

I have a bit of vinyl, and a few nicer pieces, but my components are all modern (with the exception of a pair of old Walsh Ohms I blindly purchased because they looked cool)

Distance running

Relatively inexpensive and it's good for the mind!

Watched 2 seasons of your videos on Amazon in 2 days...… good stuff. Unfortunately now I have to figure out how to get from NE Ohio to MOAB.
