I recently got into a new MMO thanks to someone else in the audio industry, Neverwinter free to play 8-)

If I lived closer to New Jersey, I think Harry and I might become friends. We have much in common. :D

When the weather is good, the stereo goes to sleep and out comes the Trek Project One Domone. Life pedaling on the road is good.

Scuba diving. Been doing it since 1973 (talk about the dark ages), and the family were all certified when at the appropriate age.

Up to almost 2015 I did ballroom dancing (including latin dances). Minus a few years off in between.
I quit when my and my dancing partner weren't happy with the school we went too. Way of teaching.
Also broke my collarbone at that moment, and never danced again.
Started dancing in 1993, and ended up Top Class 2 (direct translation from Dutch, not sure what it's called anywhere else in the world).

Other then that I like video games and hobby with computers (made it my work 16 years ago).

For me, I always get excited about audio in the fall and winter and do my most amount of listening, changes/upgrades then.

When the spring comes about, my attention turns to those other hobbies (for me Yachting). It's a bit early this year but I'm already changing interest over as I gear up with mechanical preparations and trip planning...

Short list: wood working, photography, model railroading.
High school, I was into drag racing on a budget. Learned to surf from a buddy. My dad taught me how to sail (still love it). We raced several boats on Galveston Bay, Texas. Rebuilt one from a wreck.
College days, tinkered with stereo, learned to scuba dive. Solo certified. Scripted some basic Mac software. Pre retirement, learned computer illustration, map finishing, drafting.
Retirement, active in a model railroad club (HO scale), bicycling, yoga, currency trading.
