"A class of men who are exceedingly tiresome are those who, having traveled, talk of nothing but their adventures, the countries which they have seen or traversed, the dangers, whether real or fictitious, which they have encountered, repeating the same things an hundred times over." - St. John Baptist De La Salle, 1695I have to admit, I enjoy playing with computers. I suppose it could be considered a hobby -- or possibly a curse. So, we won't dwell on that one.
But I have other hobbies that might be considered to be a bit more healthy. Music, I suppose is my favorite hobby which I talk about a bit more here. Here are a few more activities that I try to find time for:
Suzuki jeep in which I have explored much of the Ozarks, going where no other vehicles have gone. This interesting little four-wheeler is so light weight that two men can lift one end of it out of the mud, if necessary. It floats -- not very gracefully -- which was accidently tested in Sylamore creek as seen in the picture!
I also enjoy backpacking especially when that is the only option. The Sespe Wilderness area, near Ohai, California, is the most interesting area I have visited, followed closely by the Cascades, near Seattle.
