I build, shoot, and hunt with flintlock rifles…think Dan’l Boone, Davy Crockett, Revolutionary War era and earlier. Building these fine handmade replicas of rifles from the 1700’s uses both wood working and metal working skills as well as historical research into various styles of the 18th century masters. I also cast my own round balls and make other shooting accessories like powder measures, etc. When I’m not doing that I’m shooting traditional bows or hiking with my dogs.

Oh…and then there is RVing! 🙂

I had to check other. I have done photography, mostly wildlife and landscape, for well over 40 years. I started with 35mm but transitioned to digital about 20 years ago. My 50 year old daughter still talks about carrying dad’s camera gear in the Great Smokey Mountains and Acadia NP. I still enjoy it today but it has gotten easier because I only carry one camera but it can do the same thing I use to need 4 cameras to do. I can’t even guess how many thousands of dollars I have spent on my hobby.

I also love photography. I bought a small Sony DSC-RX100M3 a number of years ago so I could always take a camera with me. It has 20.1 megapixels and only a
2.9 zoom f=8.8mm-25.7mm; but that’s better than nothing. I still mourn the loss of what would have been some wonderful shots when I didn’t have the big camera with me.

Many hobbies. I love collecting gold, cooking is a favorite for sure, obviously RVing and I enjoy dropping the top in the convertible and feeling the airflow over the car while holding hands with my lover, listening to good music and remembering how blessed we are. Giving thanks for another day above the roots and more than anything, sharing our bounty by giving to others.

I ride my bike 3 or 4 times a week. Small woodworking projects, RV repairs/ upgrades, and reading (with rv travel included daily)

Photography. It includes a variety of equipment from phones to drones, point & shoot to pro-level SLRs, digital & film and my favorite – when scuba diving.

Since I can’t take it all every trip, I have to do some planning. Next spring it will be the total solar eclipse as it will track directly over our seasonal RV park before we head north.

No one has yet mentioned quilting, but there are many RV’ers who quilt, myself included. Reading, photography, gardening (well I do it, but don’t think of it as a hobby–just something that has to be done), traveling, etc etc. What about volunteering???

Only 3? That was hard! I think of my Photography as my passion more than my hobby. I’m always looking for something “to do”, so if I’m done with one thing, I find another…Gardening, if it’s too hot out, then come inside and work on a craft. If we are traveling and it includes a new beach, I add the sand to my “collection”, or if I find some really unusual rock somewhere, that gets picked up to add that to that “collection” (at our home base).

I thought that I was the only one odd enough to collect sand.

Repairing, improving, and upgrading anything that would improve and make rving just that much more enjoyable is my hobby. I love to improve on manufacture items and accessories that were originally installed or adding additional new items that I just can’t live without…lol
