    Congratulations to you and Mom!  I think you will see it is not really a hobby but a FULL TIME job, one you want to do and one that has great rewards.

    In all honesty, I like digging in the dirt. Yardwork. Making stuff grow. Problem is, that just like riding, it requires nice weather. So, when the weather is nice, do I fire up the lawnmower or the bike??? Bet you can guess which one wins most of the time! (as I wave from behind head-high grass!)

    Very nice.  My son and I race 1/10 exclusively right now, but I really want a 1/5 just to play with.

    Windsurfing and bicycling during the warmer times of the year. When it's a windy day (rare) it's definitely going to be windsurfing. Otherwise it's a tough choice between the MCing or bicycling, sometimes I can do both on same day.
    Cross country skiing to get through the winter

    I have another money pit that is a lot of fun, especially when it is too cold for the bike.

    the tires are 40" tall just for perspective.

    Sometimes the boys do both....depends on how many Guinnesses they have had the night before

    I too enjoy photography, digital art, traveling, and adventurous activities... which is why I am called "Adventure Girl" a name given me by friends/former colleagues.

    Tried golf a couple of times.........I would rather shave my head with a cheese grader or chew on tin foil than play golf ever again. I like getting outdoors and do some camping and hunting.
