    It's been quite a while since we had a hobby update and with so many new members I thought it would be worth re visiting.

    So what floats your boat? what keeps you out of trouble? Or gets you in to trouble :Wink:

    Having now got truly back in to extreme running I would list mine like so--

    Running,
    Football (watching)
    sunny day fishing,
    Skiing
    Body Boarding,
    Walking

    My less good ones
    Curry tasting
    Whiskey tasting
    Computer games.

    Would like to try--

    Photography
    freestyle climbing
    Kite making
    Model building

    Have previously tried
    Car racing (grass track)
    Motorcycle racing
    Kayaking
    Dancing :Blush::Blush:


    So what's yours called

    Well our joint hobbies are the the usual family things involved with the kids dogs and MH , like long walks , bike riding , body-boarding ( only in summer for me !!) , swimming , and visiting loads of places in the motorhome.

    I also do either Yoga , Pilate's , or Pilate's on the ball class , Monday to Friday for an hour each day at the gym. I joined Bannatines few months ago after my last bad back episode ,and its done wonders for me. I dont even take ibuprofen now, yet alone all the very strong stuff i was on.
    The physio and consultant had been telling me for years to do it. I just never got round to it.

    Ralph is also into gadgets , aeroplanes and amateur radio , scanners and anything with a big ariel :Rofl1:
    Hes not into any sport , thats why i married him:Wink:

    We have both also started going out together for nice meals and to the cinema just the 2 of us:Blush:.
    Sounds daft , but weve never really had baby sitters, except for special occasions , so we've always done everything with the kids.

    Now the kids are sensible and trustworthy enough to leave in alone the odd evening , theres no stopping us.
    If we dont go away for the weekend , they meet up with their pals Saturday /Sunday daytime , and we are out on the evening .
    Its great.
    Jacobs often heard saying " What time do you call this ? You said you wouldn't be late !!":Rofl1:
    We have talked about doing salsa dancing classes , as we would both love to be able to do it. But we haven't got round to it yet , maybe in the New Year.
    Infact it would be a good Xmas pressie for my mum and dad to get us. She was asking what we wanted this morning.

    sex, sex and sex oh yes z gauge trains

    The first three..sex, sex and sex is wishful thinking:Blush:... but z gauge model railways, RV motor homes of course. watching people make idiots of themselves putting upo the tent at Bath & West..watching Euro box owners making the treak to dump the sewage each day and how they put up there awanings.. that is great watching sport ..better than rugby.

    Having a good time in the RV

    Ok breaking it down then,

    Sex is not a hobby Bob.... its a err you know,,,a past time?

    Z gauge model railways :Smile: that's one I would love to have in the future, my own atic train set........ with Nikki bringing me up warm coffee whilst I sit in my guards uniform. I saw a lovely set in the Yorkshire dales once. Or is z bigger than hornby:Nowink:

    So now to the sadistic of your hobbies. Ok putting up tents and watching the tuggers arrive in their droves and set themselves up, yes ok......
    But in future I will only open my grey waste and empty the toilet when you are tuncked up in bed and fast asleep, I will tip toe past your van being careful not to wake izzy because I refuse to add to your hobby of euromotorhomerurineextraction in case it takes off and you get a club going.:whistle::rollonfloor:

    In no particular order (oops being watching Strictly - again :RollEyes::BigGrin:)

    Reading, listening to music, charging around the world (a lot of it in the MH), shooting (air rifle) Field Target (outdoors) and LSR (indoors), walking, all sorts of travelling, doing mindless stuff on the computer (and some not so mindless like MHFun)

    Used to SCUBA but haven't done it for quite a few years (must start again).
