I'd like to buy some sort of watercraft and/or ATV's this year to force myself out into the AZ Wilderness.

And of course, my favorite hobby .... Cars!

I'm an avid outdoorsman, so I love spending time hunting and fishing. When I was in college I shot competitively (trap and skeet) and really enjoyed doing it, but haven't made the time to visit the skeet fields in a long time.

New things (i guess something new wouldn't be a hobby though)...I really enjoy doing and seeing things I haven't before. Unfortunately all my friends just go to the same bars and get wasted every night and make fun of me for going home and reading a book (business related)on Saturday night. LOL, guess I need some new friends.

General life enjoyment-- I love to explore
I used to be into Astronomy, harcore, but living in the city kills the joy :nonod:. I had a sweet 10" scope, UHTC coartings, I had to sell it :nonod:.
Staying health/in shape
Playing Halo, the only video game I have enjoyed in quite some time.
Surfing the internet, fourm posting, which would correlate with learning, since it is a resource I use.
Blackjack. I do not have the stamina for poker.

Poker is the big one...played professionally for a couple years and now just a hobby...

Have we seen you on TV? What happened that you don't play "professionally" anymore? Playing pro poker seems like it would be fun, at least if you have a few winners here and there.

JScott, we are gonna need a youtube link to that video!!!

I like watching Formula 1 racing; Soccer (Spanish league and european competitions); Going to the gym 3 to 5 times a week (I don't really like it but I know it is good so I keep at it); I also like reading about success stories, to understand how they did it.

I like playing beach volleyball (I don't live close to the beach, but any sand court will do); go-karts; Soccer once a week (while the weather allows it)

Unfortunately, no footage on the web that I can find...

But, here's my poker profile:

Here are some pictures from the big event:

It reruns every month or two on ESPN2 and ESPN Classic. I'll let you know next time I hear that there's a rerun coming up...

Cool, i've seen you a couple of times...

I like to take in a movie every once in a while.
Read books (mostly on RE)
Do my mandatory gym time (trying to get back in shape)
I used to teach Martial Arts which kept me in fairly good shape but haven't done that in a while. I would like to get back to that and open a school in AZ when I get there.

My Hobby? Drag Racing. I absolutely love it. Made my self give it up for now though. Definitely a big part of my cash flow problems. So I parked it. It's sitting out there in the trailer......ready to go. It is now the carrot dangling in front of my nose. Because I have promised myself that I won't sit in it again until I am WELLLLLL on my way to financial freedom. GMJ

I'm really into drag racing also. I did the same thing....just to expensive to pursue at the moment.

Poker, I play online poker and live poker when I get the chance. The game is more like chess then most people realize. I enjoy being 3 steps ahead. I am seasoned poster on the 2+2 forums and a subscriber to Duecescracked. Both are well worth my time for something I enjoy.

I golf and also play frisbee golf. Great ways to spend time.

I also enjoy riding my 82' yamaha maxim 650.

I am part of the nintendo generation, so I do play video games a couple hours a week. I consider that my TV time since I watch hardly any TV.

I wouldn't be a true Colorado native if I didn't enjoy, hiking/camping/fishing etc.

I know for everyone here living in the FAST LANE is doing what you love to do, and at 24 I can safely say I ENJOY my life and am able to do things I love to do. Sure, I wish I had more money but who doesn't!

Anyway, those are my hobbies and some pictures of what we're into :)
