      I used to have a whole slew of hobbies :

      – build plastic models, specializing in cars and military vehicles (especially tanks).

      – build r/c models.  My fave was Tamiya, but because it is an import brand, the price tag also reflects the fact that it is an import.

      – collect star wars figures; wonder woman figures (especially the adult barbie collection).

      But due to finances, lack of space, and if nothing happens to me at work I’m also facing retirement, I’ve had to really pair down my hobbies, so the hobbies above have been totally cut.  My hobbies going forward :

      – staying in shape and fitness.

      – CDing.  I’ve invested alot of time/$$$ and it is something I really enjoy doing.

      – video games.  I have about 200+ games in my Steam library and I have only touched about maybe 3 games out of the whole library, so I have a ways to go.

      In a normal winter, skiing, skiing, and more skiing, so none of that this year. Bread baking, studying French, and lots of reading to fill the void.

       

      Hugs,

      My hobbies are several.

      I do a lot with computers as a hobby, home network that some friends say is bigger than a small company with several physical and virtual servers running websites and other things. Computers is also what I work with for living so it’s easier to get away with having long hair, just make me look more geeky.

      Electronics and maker of things. With electronics we talking designing a new board for a raspberry pi to expand it’s functionality, use arduino to create my own remote temperature probe or weather station and so on. Also got a 3D printer to play with and make boxes for my projects.

      Photography, not so much lately but I have been taken pictures of nature in different ways.

      I love horseback riding. I spend most of the summer trail riding in the Alberta mountains and the winter at the local arena.

      Maybe you can let me know where i can get a horse that needs to be rehomed. Looking for a riding horse.

      My number one hobby is reading, anything… but leaning toward military history and historical fiction. I am an avid fan of military history, war gaming, and scale model building.

      I am an avid biker (motorcycles) when the weather permits. I can lose myself from the world. I also like to make puppets and love football. I played in university got hurt moved on and became a fan. I have season tickets for our local team. I also love to cook but really only get to cook lately on special occasions. I do not know if this is a hobby but I am a huge movie buff especially horror and sci-fi and a big trekie.

      Hi Maggie,

      My greatest interest is recreating historical objects. Starting from scratch and using materials that are as close to what was used… I build items that are as close to the working original as possible.
      So far I’ve built two crossbows, one being a copy of a late Roman version and another more medieval in nature.
      The medieval version has a killing range of 100 meters and an injury range of 160.
      The best project I’ve undertaken was a recreation of a Mainz Gladius. I learnt heaps about carbon steeling and the various techniques form Roman times. The item is absolutely within the old parameters and feels like the real deal. I fabricated a Roman scutum to go with it and have been practicing the old Roman fighting techniques.
      My next project is to manufacture the steel banded armour one sees in the books and movies.
      I will say it takes it toll on my fingernails but… c’est la vie.

      Love Polly

      Off-roader, have been for years. Rock crawling, mudding…we love it all. Have had Hummers, Jeeps, now a lifted Tacoma. Damn, if my redneck friends only knew about Haley….🤪 Also love to menu plan, cook, and I keep a compulsively clean house. I’m also also begun to write my story…and trust me, it is definitely erotic literature😈

      When I can’t dress I also blog, and recently really got back into electronics. Nothing helps beat stress and boredom like completely re-wiring a USB hub for a custom purpose.

      What are my other hobbies? Well, lets see. I love wearing pantyhose and showing my legs in heels and a short dress. I love wearing breast forms with my bras. I love having pretty hair. and although quite scary I love going out dressed. And when my Patty day is done, I like to slip into a silky and sexy nightie or some lingerie, a bra, pantyhose and go to bed.

      In the morning when I awake, I slip in my breast forms, put on a wig and step into my pumps and begin another Patty day. Not much time for other hobbies.

      I love to Kayak as much as possible during the summer months. I often am dressed as Erica while kayaking. I have started a new hobby. A few months ago a friend held a fundraising party to raise money for Breast cancer. When the guest arrived at the party we were given a plain white bra. We then sat at tables and using paints and jewels/glitter and a few other items each guest decorated their bra in any way they liked. Once everyone was done she collected them and explained that they would be auctioned off as pieces of art and the money was donated local women with breast cancer. In the last three months I have decorated over twenty Bra’s and raised just over $2500 and given five ladies $500 each

      I am a gardener in the months that allow it and winter hobbies include puzzles, coin collecting, baking and snow shoeing…I do a lot of walking as it helps keep my blood pressure in check so that is a year long activity.

      I enjoy woodworking and woodturning.  I enjoy making furniture and cabinets.  I also make wooden bowls, boxes, mills, and other crafty items which I sell at local craft fairs.

      When I’m not in the shop I enjoy being outdoors cycling, hiking, skiing and kayaking.

      In my younger years I enjoyed Snow Skiing, Bowling. In bowling my High game was 293 and my average was 265 but that was when I was in High School. Acting on stage in different musicals such as Annie Get Your Gun, Oklahoma, several Minstrels, The Mikado and several other shows. I was part of The Albany Civic Theater in Albany NY. I also was a Baritone / Base singer in the Knights of Columbus Glee Club in Albany NY. But now that I am in my Senior years my only hobby is my family Genealogy which I have been working on since 1969. Yes that’s more than 50 years.

      I hate to say it but what is a hobby?
      For 50 years my work was my life on call 24/7/365. Then carting my daughter to her activities. Now my wife is semi-invalidated. Maybe why I don’t like being a guy?  Though there was a time when I did play drums not very well but I enjoyed it. I road my bicycle long distances (minimum 18 miles a day to 75/80 miles a day) then I got and ear infection in both ears and lost almost my sense of balance. And I did cold metal typesetting and have my own printing press. And needless to say I love to read!

      Other than reading, I am currently learning to use a sewing machine. it’s been a long time since Junior High Home Ec class. Darned 2 pairs of my wife’s favourite jeans and am studying how to take in the waist of a pair she gifted to Rei.

      I usually get super excited about a new subject and dive in head first before the obsession subsides and just becomes another part of my life. Most recently it was meditating, spirituality, nutritional healing. Physical exercise (weights mostly)

      I am constantly doing Reno’s at home, some projects taking far longer than they should have (not procrastinating, just get bored and move on and start a new one)

      Does self work count as a hobby? I’m Always trying to be a better human, spouse and parent. This one takes lots of effort.

      I would not call it a hobby but I love to read. I remember when I was a child and I got a library card. My parents every other Saturday would go grocery shopping and would drop me off at the library.

      I think makeup has become a hobby, a frustrating one…lol…but I loved the classes I went to love studying colour theory, undertones and how makeup can transform you.

      I like to understand how thinks work when it comes to technology and in particular ecommerce so I have taken it upon myself to learn web coding html, css, javascript, php and I have come to appreciate Amazon and the complexity behind the website.

      Funny, I’ve never considered reading a hobby either, more like a necessity, like breathing for example!

      My hobbies spread through a couple of centuries.

      Historical reenacting 1790 to 1840, canoeing, competitive shooting. Flintlock rifle is the most fun.

      I am currently rebuilding a ’64 Datsun roadster. Auto racing when I can.

      For me, dressing is not a hobby. In physical terms, I dress, but I identify as transgender, non-binary. As such, I am dressed 80% to 90% of the time when I leave my house.

      I’ve been a car person since childhood. I discovered Indy cars about 1955 and Formula 1 in 1961. American Phil Hill was the 1st World Driving Champion for here. I was fortunate to meet him about 15 years ago, a few years before he passed away. There are very few touring series that run in the US that I have not seen somewhere. The list starts with Formula 1, extends to Legends Cars and everything in between. The middle 2 shelves contain most of my collection of motorsports books; many have been autographed by their authors and notable drivers who appear in the books. Some other interesting ones that are elsewhere:

      • BEAST, The Top Secret Illmore-Penske Race Car That Shocked the World at the 1994 Indy 500 by Gurss
      • PROTOTYPES, The History of the IMSA GTP Series by Martin & Wells
      • CORVETTE THUNDER, 50 Years of Corvette Racing 1953-2003 by Friedman
      • PANOZ LMP 1 Roadster S, Back To The Future by Ingram
      • HURLEY, From The Beginning by Haywood & Cridland

      Over the years, I’ve owned some unusual cars: 1972 Honda 600 Coupe and a 1970 Lotus Elan +2S. I have never owned a car with an automatic. I’ll confess to lusting after Minis since the early 60’s. At the end of Summer, 2009 I finally bought one and I still have it!! 2009 factory John Cooper Works MINI Clubman. 2009 was the 2nd year for the Clubman body shell and the 1st year for the factory John Cooper Works drivetrain option. It has 208hp and will do 147mph. After having it a few months, I found out that it is one of only about 120 cars imported in 2009 with that body shell/drivetrain combination out of 45,225 cars.

      Other Interests…

      Up until 3 1/2 years ago, I was a road cyclist good for 55 to 60 miles. However, I had  a mild stroke and the most significant after effect was that my sense of balance is ~80% of what it used to be. I think it is close to being recovered enough, so I’ve been fixin’ ta’ get back on the bike. Compounding this is that I had just taken delivery of a new road bike (a carbon Ritchey BreakAway with full 11spd Campagnolo Chorus drive train) just before the stroke. It has ~50 miles on it. It was a replacement for my steel BreakAway with 10spd Centaur that had been stolen. I also follow professional cycling.

      I’m a big fan of Mid-Century Architecture, with a particular leaning to the works of Frank Lloyd Wright. Over the years I’ve been to a number of Wright structures, including Taliesin West, his Oak Park, IL home, Unity Chapel, the Robie House and the Marin County Offices.

      I am a retired mechanical engineer, but for 6 years I made my living doing computer programming using Fortran, BASIC and database languages. I also did discrete event simulation for 2 years using GPSS/H and AutoMod. Six years ago I built a Hackintosh. It is a machine with generic Intel PC hardware, but running the MacOS operating system. It has been my primary desktop machine since I built it. Note the vintage Macintoshes as bookends on the shelf. I fired them up just after we moved 4 years ago, so I assume they still run.

      Since I retired and relocated to the SoCal desert, I’ve been involved with the LGBT community here. I was a Board Member and Treasurer for our local trans group and also Digital Media Coordinator for our local HRC group. I did both functions for about 2 years and then resigned. Currently I am the Volunteer Coordinator for Palm Springs Pride.

      have you thought of trying a recumbent trike? They can be a lot of fun and don’t require balance

      I don’t work atm, but potter around on our farm, which is kinda my work.

      I like hunting, fishing, and gardening. Making friends with the local wildlife.

      I love reading self help books, meditation, studying nutrition, exercise, camping, hiking, fishing and I am a ham radio operator. I would say corssdressing, but that is not a hobby, it’s a lifestyle.

      Hi girls

      I like reading, especially Bernard Cornwell’s historical novels, adore music, more chance of finding me with earphones on than watching TV, used to do a lot of course fishing. I love walking, in fact ” outdoors” in general……and I love red wine. I also seem to be collecting lipstick.!!

      Love, grace xx

      For me, I have been crossdressing consistently for just a few years. I have had a lifelong hobby of working out with weightlifting & aerobics, maintaining a strict healthy diet and consuming numerous dietary supplements. I started this hobby in college, after participating in varsity sports teams during high school.

      I love backpacking. I started hiking on a whim in 1974 and after a month on the AT I fell in love with being on a trail. That led me to collecting old backpacking stoves from the 40’s thru the 70’s. I also enjoy trout fishing, nothing like being in a mountain stream with the sun shining and the only sound is the water. For fun I have a 94 Corvette that is in mint condition. I like to put on a skirt and take the top off and go for a drive on a sunny day.

      For me, dressing is not a hobby. In physical terms, I dress, but I identify as transgender, non-binary. As such, I am dressed 80% to 90% of the time when I leave my house.

      I’ve been a car person since childhood. I discovered Indy cars about 1955 and Formula 1 in 1961. American Phil Hill was the 1st World Driving Champion for here. I was fortunate to meet him about 15 years ago, a few years before he passed away. There are very few touring series that run in the US that I have not seen somewhere. The list starts with Formula 1, extends to Legends Cars and everything in between. The middle 2 shelves contain most of my collection of motorsports books; many have been autographed by their authors and notable drivers who appear in the books. Some other interesting ones that are elsewhere:

      • BEAST, The Top Secret Illmore-Penske Race Car That Shocked the World at the 1994 Indy 500 by Gurss
      • PROTOTYPES, The History of the IMSA GTP Series by Martin & Wells
      • CORVETTE THUNDER, 50 Years of Corvette Racing 1953-2003 by Friedman
      • PANOZ LMP 1 Roadster S, Back To The Future by Ingram
      • HURLEY, From The Beginning by Haywood & Cridland

      Over the years, I’ve owned some unusual cars: 1972 Honda 600 Coupe and a 1970 Lotus Elan +2S. I have never owned a car with an automatic. I’ll confess to lusting after Minis since the early 60’s. At the end of Summer, 2009 I finally bought one and I still have it!! 2009 factory John Cooper Works MINI Clubman. 2009 was the 2nd year for the Clubman body shell and the 1st year for the factory John Cooper Works drivetrain option. It has 208hp and will do 147mph. After having it a few months, I found out that it is one of only about 120 cars imported in 2009 with that body shell/drivetrain combination out of 45,225 cars.

      Other Interests…

      Up until 3 1/2 years ago, I was a road cyclist good for 55 to 60 miles. However, I had  a mild stroke and the most significant after effect was that my sense of balance is ~80% of what it used to be. I think it is close to being recovered enough, so I’ve been fixin’ ta’ get back on the bike. Compounding this is that I had just taken delivery of a new road bike (a carbon Ritchey BreakAway with full 11spd Campagnolo Chorus drive train) just before the stroke. It has ~50 miles on it. It was a replacement for my steel BreakAway with 10spd Centaur that had been stolen. I also follow professional cycling.

      I’m a big fan of Mid-Century Architecture, with a particular leaning to the works of Frank Lloyd Wright. Over the years I’ve been to a number of Wright structures, including Taliesin West, his Oak Park, IL home, Unity Chapel, the Robie House and the Marin County Offices.

      I am a retired mechanical engineer, but for 6 years I made my living doing computer programming using Fortran, BASIC and database languages. I also did discrete event simulation for 2 years using GPSS/H and AutoMod. Six years ago I built a Hackintosh. It is a machine with generic Intel PC hardware, but running the MacOS operating system. It has been my primary desktop machine since I built it. Note the vintage Macintoshes as bookends on the shelf. I fired them up just after we moved 4 years ago, so I assume they still run.

      Since I retired and relocated to the SoCal desert, I’ve been involved with the LGBT community here. I was a Board Member and Treasurer for our local trans group and also Digital Media Coordinator for our local HRC group. I did both functions for about 2 years and then resigned. Currently I am the Volunteer Coordinator for Palm Springs Pride.

      I do a lot of volunteer work in my community – park cleanups, finding ways to help kids in need, mentoring youth groups. I also love playing video and board games with my family. Plus my yard, which NEVER looks good enough for me.

      My main hobby is collecting rare records, mostly 45’s. Punk, RnR, blues or whatever peaks my interest. Also collect memorabilia, posters, autographs, original album artwork and books dealing with RnR. My friends call my place Rock n Roll Hall of Fame West with all the stuff on the walls. LOL. Also collect art glass and pottery, Maxfield Parrish prints, Walter Nutting hand tinted b/w photo’s and a smattering of salt and pepper shakers.

      Love and Peace,

      Amber

      My biggest ‘hobby’ is a beautiful German Shepherd that needed me a few years ago.  I’m active, hoping to preserve my health by pursuing a healthy weight and diet.  I like running, biking, and swimming.  I’m a political junkie hoping for a return to empathy and normalcy.  I am incredibly intellectually curious.  I have been the family caregiver when required, which happens to us spinsters, both of which I feel so fortunate.  As ChloeC said in her previous reply, I love taking care of the outside, yet I find little interest in the inside of the house.  I have a green thumb and enjoy the soil.  I hope to learn more about making music when my life affords me more time.  I think I’m pretty good at the guy things, but want to practice more of the girly stuff- but, I’ve bought the uniforms!  Thanks for this topic.  I love reading about everyone’s hobbies.

      I love my simulators. I use a flight simulator, train simulator and ship simulator at different times. My favourite is my flight simulator which I use to fly with a virtual airline. It’s great fun dressing for the part too……  https://www.dropbox.com/s/5c4xd0km16nwubn/In%20the%20cockpit.jpg?dl=0

      Hmm, Lets see.  Golf, bowling, chain mail jewelry, anodizing aluminum, play and collect video games and video game systems, collect board games, movies, martial arts, Ren Faires, comics (haven’t in a long time but still have my collection), fantasy novels, dogs, and hopefully soon back into choreographed dancing, either tap or ballroom.  That’s all I can think of right now.

      3 children.

      Fortunately my job is one of my hobbies – I have loved tinkering with computers since my father brought one home from his work back in the early 1980s.

      It was a “portable” IBM machine, roughly double the size of a desktop (not a laptop).

      My other main hobbies are music and acting, and I was lucky enough to find a degree course in music, computing and drama. It was module based, and a lot of hard work, trying to juggle 3 subjects, but loving all of them helped!

      So, coming out of university, I have worked in computing, built up a sizeable vinyl record and electric guitar collection, and performed in rock gigs, “Classical” concerts and plays from pantomime to Shakespeare.

      Love Laura

      Hi Maggie!

      Thanks for such a great topic! My favorite hobby is maintaining my 5 fish tanks. I enjoy going to the movies and seeing plays. I like to read and when I am commuting I enjoy listening to audio books. I enjoy video games but not as much as I did when my children were as young as my grandkids are now. Two weeks ago I put air in the tires of the mountain bike I purchased three years ago. I rode it twice last week so I wouldn’t call that a hobby just yet. It will be a while before riding that bicycle becomes more fun than work.

      Hugs

      Autumn

      I’m very into artwork. I’ve done pencil sketches, pen & ink and I am trying to paint with acrylics lately. I was really into 35 mm photography and had my own darkroom back in the 80’s. I’d coat my own papers for B&W pictures.  I just can’t enjoy digital photography. Other than composition, I can’t find much real art in digital media.

      We live on a little under an acre of forested land in an older subdivision at the end of a cul-de-sac, so maintaining it is a ‘hobby’ I’m sort of required (I won’t say forced) to do. But for pure enjoyment I have a lot of varied interests.  I play golf, kayak, and bicycle in the summer (I have an e-bike, one of the best investments I’ve ever made, other than engagement rings). I also hike when I can (having been on the App.Trail twice now). I was into going to the gym 4-5 days a week until lockdown and I miss that. In the winter I alpine ski. Also when not in quarantine, I hang out with a mixed group for Bar Trivia one night week and sometimes I just go myself on other nights. My spouse’s (deceased) brother had a Lionel train which my son and grandson played with until the younger went to college so I’ve set up a simple layout. I occasionally work on genealogy, belonging to the popular online site. On clear nights, I’ll stargaze and have an expensive telescope and high powered binoculars and belong to a local club. I also have two kites, a prism spinner and a Red Baron tri-plane that I’ll fly on windy days a beach park nearby. Oh, and sometimes I actually have a spare moment to dress, but not as much as I’d like.

      Yea I like the sporty look and enjoy tennis and golf. Only once did I play golf en femme with two friends that are lesbians and great golfers. I wore the womens shorts since neither wore skirts and a sleeveless polo shirt and bra. I play like a girl and the three of us had such fun at rancho park. Sure other people thought all three of us were lesbian and would like to repeat the experience again very soon

      Great question. I FaceTime with my little grandkids and read them books. I’m a closeted CDer and have to decline incoming video calls when I’m a girl.

      Newly single, now I have to cook, and enjoy that more when I’m CD! I’d like to garden too while CD but haven’t dared that yet.

      Plastic models but I have less time for that now.

      This is a lovely thread 💕

      This morning I was making some brioche dough (now proving in the bathroom); later a short bike ride, some reading, and maybe some leather crafting.
      I’m in charge of food prep, so will cook (maybe some Thai curry) later too.
      Netflix this evening (Carlo and Malik…. are all Italians so racist??) and a snuggle with my Ragdoll cats.

      Broken down old 60’s rock guitarist here, also ex keen recreational fisherman. (last boat was an 18ft/5.5m “tinnie” (Australian for “Alooominium”) with a 90 Honda 4 stroke on the back. Where it would not go I should not be!!

      Have often mused what it would be like/ have been like/  to do either en femme. Ballgowns on boat ramps??… Dont think so!!

      We oldies will remember the Everley Bros.I once knew another CD guitarist and told her we should be the “Neverbe Sisters”

      Love reading and a good walk for exercise. A walk in the park enfemme in “flats” is very enjoyable

      I am a huge audiophile, LP’s, and cassette tapes take up a LOT of room, and I even have some old 8-tracks and a Zenith Wedge stereo that I can play them on.  The cassettes and LP’s are only played on my vintage Technics stereo system.

      I also like target shooting, both rifles and pistols, but I do it for fun, not competition.

      And, I am a voracious reader.  Mostly history and sci-fi or action thriller type stories.  Growing up, my mom would get on to me at breakfast for taking so long because I would read every word and side of the cereal boxes, lol.  I think my car just automatically drives me to the bookstores in Amarillo when I go.

      PS.  And I can’t forget my men friends, a very nice hobby after all.

      No other active hobbies at the moment; but I like to build computers and configure them do do different tasks.  I collect records and recordings from the 20’s and play the alto sax (poorly).  Used to collect machine guns, until the cost became prohibitive.

      A Pinto Squire wagon and a woody even, classic. I love seeing some of the less popular old cars. I was at a show and shine last summer and there was a ’74 maverick and a ’74 vega, not done up all stock just the way they rolled off the line, awesome. I picked up a ’94 camaro last spring I’ve got a 5 year plan for, I’m just putting it back the way it came, that’s one of my hobbies. I also play around with photography and I love to cook too

      I recently bought an Ebike and am really enjoying it.  I had a couple of pairs of elastic waist skinny jeans with no pockets that are perfect for bike riding. I also had a pair of panties with foam pads in the backside that make the ride a bit more comfy. Since stuck at home I find I can run to the grocery store and P.O. etc. on the bike and not have to drive my car for days at a time. Now it just needs to be a bit warmer.

      I enjoy Genealogy. I have been working on my Family tree for over 50 years, before everything was digitize and made genealogy computer accessible.
