Apart from the obvious (SEX) I am really into water and adventourous sports! I especailly like Surfing/windsurfing and mountaineering! I am also into shooting and fishing! And of course this site lol!!!

Great idea for a topic mark
My hobby or rather obsession is power kites, I have a kite buggy and can not think of a better way to spend a day off, than bombing up and down the beach or field with nothing with the wind for power. I have met a load of good people, and travelled all over the place while pursuing my obsession / hobby.
Daren’t think how much I have spent on kites and travel, but you are only here once.

Karate, I manage to go at least twice a week ( and I have four children ) I also am a bookworm with always a pile of libary books.

You need to be able to have a hobby or interest whatever the cost and to be your own person ( wow how deep is that)

Playing music in various failed bands and postbox hugging.

Fat Bloke, my girlfriend keeps going on about trying that - is it expensive to have a go? how would you go about trying it for the first time?

A L L ... M E M B E R S

we have a terrific gallery on line for members of this site

if you have any photos of yourself indulging in your hobby, whatever it is, then please submit them to me

example :

[ external image ] click to zooooooom
this is Jonpcso doing his thing with a rock

MY HOBBIES

I) cycling .... I love zooming along the towpath down by the river on my moutain bike, but I have had too many punctures for my liking

the last time I had a puncture my bike was off the road for a month :? I did 3 puncture repairs all of which failed

I then bought a new tyre AND inner tube which solved it but cycling is heaven to me

II) programming - at the moment I have done 2 levels of a dungeon maze using an old programming language called BLITZ BASIC
it may be old but it rocks as far as I am concerned :mrgreen:
