what are your other pursuits?
« on: June 11, 2019, 03:30:17 PM »
other than salivating over Weber's, what else do you like to do for fun or relaxation?

astronomy is/was my number one hobby...moved to a place with very little sun, so it's meagre now...in fact, I haven't been out observing in over 2 years :(

I'd also like to get into microscopy. I actually bought a crazy nice research grade Zeiss, but then had to well cause I downsized my living quarters from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 300sqft bachelor pad.

I also like coffee and wish I could go out camping more. I also enjoy shooting paper at the range.  :)

I too enjoy shooting. I love spending time at the range or out in the sticks putting lead into various targets. Old guns & new guns - handguns & long Guns. Big fan of older Marlins - especially levers. Find it all very relaxing.

Also like mountain biking. Have been rising for years....although not so much this past year. Really need to get back to it - guess Ive got something to do this summer break.

Photography. Good glass + good camera body (Nikon) + good eye = good pics. Period
Multiple kettles and WSM's. I am not a collector, just a gatherer... and a sick bastard.

Photography and I second what @hawgheaven said.  But the most important camera equipment is the space between your ears.  But good glass followed by a good camera body are also important.  Canon shooter here but i'll switch if i ever get Nikon to sponsor me

oh yeah...I forgot about audio. guess that's cause I haven't done any real listening in the last year n a bit. all my gear is packed up as we moved in to help my wife's parents and didn't have the space. we're in our own place now, so I can break it out, just haven't...been too lazy.

Fishing, photography, playing guitar, coffee, whiskey, eating lol

All truth. I just don't have the eye :( my brain just isn't wired that way

I share many interests with you guys!

My wife has been getting into photography, and I just got myself a Nikon d3300 for 60 bucks at an estate sale the other day(brand new)
Not looking forward to buying glass, we spent like 650 on my wife's tamron lens and that's pretty cheap.

@Cellar2full we should trade seeds sometime before next season! I got quite a few tomato varieties in a trade this year, but if you like peppers I'm your man! I will post up some pics of what I grew last year. We had so much rain that I'm just now getting all my plants in.

I also used to mess with car audio, but I haven't lately because I feel like I used to go through alternators a lot quicker back then lol

I will keep my eye out for old locks too @Cain will let you know if I find something

Anyway, here are some crappy cell phone pics of peppers, my main hobby, which I hope to make a business out of, some day. But its a pretty saturated market.
Oh and I make homemade hot sauce. If anyone wants to try some let me know. I haven't made a batch in a while, but I need to use up the freezer full of peppers I have.

Oh yeah!  Im finally growing peppers this year. I want to experiment with dehydrating and making seasoning out of them. My little brother does that every year. Also would like to make sauces. I experimented a little last year.

I want a bottle of your best kick your ass hot sauce!  Seriously. Let me know and Ill buy a bottle or two.
