Hobbies other than brewing?

Post by OldNelly »

So, what else does everyone do to kill time? I enjoy camping, fishing, woodworking and the biggest brewery budget killer of them all....audio equipment. Recently I decided to put my foot on the bottom rung of the high end stereo ladder, a Naim Nait 5Si. No brewing upgrades this year for me. Here's a few pics of my main system.
Top to bottom:
-Yaqin MS-23B tubed phono stage
-Archos 5 - 250GB hard drive for digital music
-Pioneer Elite surround reciever
-Thorens TD-150 MK-ii turntable. I built a custom walnut and cherry plinth for it 5 or so years ago.
-Naim Nait 5 Si integrated amplifier
-Power conditioner
-on the left -Totem Acoustics Arro - for 2 channel
-on the right - NHT ST4 - for multi-channel

For me, at this time, other hobbies mainly include:

- trying to learn "clawhammer style" banjo playing,
- motorcycle touring
- RV'ing

I also still enjoy tinkering in the garage with a restored/modified 1979 BMC Mini that I restored about 20 years ago! I used to enjoy restoring Brit sports cars, and although I dont really do it any more, still kept the Mini along with a good collection of tools, welding equipt. etc.

Save the whales ...................................... collect the whole set.

Besides brewing, my hobbies/interests include hunting, fishing camping and canoeing, as well as gardening and playing guitar.

Oh, and hanging out here on the homebrew forum. :cheers:
