I have been doing all kinds of camping since the age of 4. So I started writing a weekly camping tips blog a little over a year ago to stay busy, and I also post some of my recipes on it as well, after being a Chef for 28 years.

I love to sew so much that I bought another machine just to take with us in the RV. Yes of course it was an excuse to get another machine. I wish I knew how to do upholstery so I could rid ourselves of the tacky RV dinette cushions. But! I made new privacy curtains and window treatments and our motorhome is starting to look real nice.

There is a utube for everything, check it out and make new dinette cushions. You will save a ton of money. I quilt , sew the tops on the road, quilt at home, both just on regular home machines. Love it!

Photography for me! Also a little astronomy when the sky allows!

You forgot to account for many of us who have two or more serious hobbies, e.g. music and outdoors.

My hobbies are Ham Radio, geek electronics, and computer games. Now if I can only find the perfect RV to fit it all in.

You left out a critical hobby (at least for me) Woodworking, I love working with wood from building houses to wood drink holders. So I voted other.

Have about a thousand hours into maintenance and upgrades on the motor home. Always something to do.

I dabble with old (tube type) radios, old vehicles (my motorhome is 44 years old). and, well, collecting. If I don’t have to feed it, pay taxes on it, or listen to it bit**, it can stay as I might need it some day.

Off road trail riding in my Jeep, boating, musical instrument repair, woodworking in my shop when we’re at our home base and more. I’ve been accused of being ADHD by my wife.

I’m addicted photography. Sometimes I get an “art” shot, but I document travels, local explorations, events, projects, etc. A camera is never far from my hand. I also use a Cricut machine for a variety of craft & art projects. Sometimes I even combine the two. My husband& I also train our 2 dogs in the sports of Agility & Rally, competing when possible.

I’m a Birder so I combine all my trips to include chasin birds while exploring. Also travel 3-4 months international (cept this year ) and the travel/birding combo is never ending wherever I may be.

Genealogy. I almost selected collecting…lol…but that’s only part of the hobby.

Too many to list in one category. But I think more folks need hobbies and less time complaining. LOL

Same here. There is not enough time in a day for all of my interests.
