    Yup, I was going to respond with Patriot Guard Riders. I rode several missions with our local PGR group. It was an honor to serve in this capacity.
    Thanks & Happy Wood Chips,

    I snowmobile a bit. A bit of saltwater fishing when we are in FL, in our RV for 3 months a year, we have an older 19' center console there. A pontoon at home gets lots of use in the summer. I enjoy blowing snow and mowing the lawn. The single biggest "hobby" is tinkering around the church, I am the chair of the property committee and also head up our livestreaming tech team, running the video switcher most Sundays I am home, a well as recommending and installing new tech equipment.
    NOW you tell me...

    My day job (clinical psychologist in private practice) takes up a great deal of time, plus I sit on a few professional committees. I would not call it a hobby, but I have a large-ish collection of vintage fountain pens which are fun to use and make note taking less of a drudgery. Iíve always tended to burn the candle at both ends, with much competitive sport in the past: tennis, squash and I windsurfed on the state and national circuit for 20+ years. Now I just run on a treadmill every evening after work. Outside of the physical side of woodworking, I run the occasional workshop and teach/demonstrate at woodshows, and write and maintain a website/blog. I spend 12 years restoring a 1957 Porsche 356. I miss that one. I am something of a Porsche fan, and enjoy touring the local vineyards and countryside top down in my old Boxster S. Travel is my wifeís joy, and we generally spent a few weeks somewhere in the world each year.

    Regards from Perth

    Rod,
    I am up to 57 years with a few breaks along the way when I temporarily thought "quitting was a good idea."
    Those breaks didn't last long and I am happily rolling along on a 1976 BMW R90/6 like yours.
    Funny thing is, I sold a 2013 BMW F700GS to buy the R90. It had too much electronics for this old airhead.
