    I have a coffee mug from almost everywhere I've been. Lots of branded cops too, but that sure takes up a lot of room.

    Play and renovate guitars, read a lot, write short stories, surf Youtube to see where I end up, draw (not much lately), play chess when I can find someone who knows how and watch the world pass me by with a glass of wine in my hand. I never get bored.

    I enjoy the challenge of camping off the motorcycle as well.

    Guitar is my only hobby.

    Though I have taken a big interest in recording.

    I collect old quarters. I don't really consider it a hobby. Specifically, quarters with the eagle. Real quarters. So from 1990's and earlier. They remind me of my misspent youth in the arcades od the 1980's.

    Photography here too.
    Similar to my guitar hobby I don’t have primo gear, and I’m not very good - but I enjoy it and keep trying to get better. And I stick with it.

    Well, let's see. I run occasionally, I like to cook, therefore I run. I date pretty girls and I am a race car official for Indy Cars.

    Piano
    Mountain dulcimer
    Lap steel
    Tenor sax
    Clarinet
    Harmonica
    Autoharp

    In that order pretty much. I suck at all of them, but it sure is fun trying. Other hobbies would be birdwatching and building musical instruments.

    Whoops, I forgot stand up paddle boarding, fishing, and boating.

    I collect knives, mostly kitchen knives, but pocket knives too, albeit to a lesser extent. I also collect All Clad cook wear. I'm into planted tropical fish aquariums as well.

    Oh man, I have a bad story about Matchbox/Hotwheels. When I was about 8 years old I read in one of my dad's investment magazines that die cast cars were collectible, especially in their original packaging. I would take my meager allowance, maybe a dollar a week or something, and I'd buy Matchbox and Hotwheels cars. I kept them in their original packaging and socked them away in a glass display case I had in my room.

    When I went away to school on the west coast my dad got remarried. The lady he married had a daughter who got my old room. She was maybe 13 or 14, but was really into cars. Of course you can imagine what happened next. All of my "investment" Hotwheels were opened and played with. Ironically, my father was an investment counselor/broker and was always very protective about his assets. Perhaps you can detect a smidge of bitterness in my tone? This is just one example, but the general theme is that he got married, but I was the one who got screwed. I guess you can say my first lesson in investments was a failure.

    Wow. This is gonna be a long list for me.

    It would be for faster to list the things I am not "into"
    Starting with most traditional "ball" sports. Just a big fat zero for me.

    But cars, motorcycles, airplanes, of all scales. Motorsports, all aspects of music, good food and drink.....
    Whew, this could go on!
