Golfing, swimming, travelling when I am not working, lifes to short make the most of it
Wait, I'm meant to just have one? Uh oh. I'm definitely a hobby collector, though the reality of that is that it kind of ends up that I have neither the time or cash to pursue any of them to the level I'd like.
Wish I could say classic cars, hence the name, but while I do still have one of my beloved VDubs ('68 Beetle) it's been a long time since I've been able to invest any real time and cash into it. Hopefully when the little one's a bit older - that ones kind of been stored to one side. So day to day I've got my motorbike which I class as a hobby - it's cheap and cheerful, which does me.
...And then on the opposite spectrum, I like to fly planes!
where do you fly from ? I jump out of planes and fly helicopters
I'm 'based' (I only rent) out of Halfpenny Green (EGBO). I quite like the idea of doing a jump someday but I dunno...there's something wrong about abandoning a perfectly good plane.
I like caravanning, unfortunately I spent more time fixing the tow car than in the 'van!.
I can’t stick at hobbies. I used to collect old mobile phones, then fishing, then golf, then motorcycling. Currently I’m into growing my own veg as we took on an allotment last year. I have a loft full of mobile phones, fishing, golf and motorcycling gear.......
Great outdoors, traveling and classic cars
Target shooting [I did say Targets, not things OK]
Use an single shot bolt action rifle in .22 also did some outdoor 600 Yard using 7.62 [sporting version is 0.308] Bloody noisy !!!
Also shoot air rifle and pistol, as above, at targets not "things"
New hobby is old petrol lawnmowers... falling very quickly into the addition that is fettling, buying, servicing, painting them!
I enjoy hiking, swimming and photography.
I was looking to get a magnifier for my Leica M10. From what I've read, it seems that Leica changed the threading in the eyepiece, so the 1.25x and 1.4x magnifiers they sell won't fit without an adapter. Am I correct about this? Are there any magnifiers available for the m10 that don't require an adapter? it seems silly to spend $100 just to be able to use a little glass lens that already costs $400 (yes I know, it's Leica).
