Well most hobbies are related to offending in some way
reloading among, and shooting

have done others, just that with time issues, some of those have fallen away.

Morning fellows,

I have a few hobbies / passions:

Playing mechanic
Building / flying model aircraft
Fishing, but since this became a mass-sport, I have stepped back.

Caring for my family. This is my passion.. Wife, son, daughter, 3 dogs, 6 cats and 5 Koi fish.

4x4ing & camping
Domestic DIY ie from brickwork to electrical (more out of necessity than anything else, comes with home ownership I guess)
Metalwork, love welding.
Braai - actually more of a religion than a passtime :mrgreen:
This forum instead of working :twisted:

Not so active anymore:
Model aeroplanes; building & flying.
Fishing; papgooi & bass.

Done before:
Raced karts in PE; 125cc Rotax classes. Quit in 2007 as I couldn't afford it anymore; really miss it though..

Would love to start camping and go overlanding more often, only as soon as my youngest daughter stops dinking away my pay :lmao: (allergy thing)

I have 8 or 9 rods / reels gathering dust because we are no longer allowed on the beaches with vehicles and I'm not going to walk up the coast.

I have a collection of modern and antique firearms, but can't get any more because our govt says I have too many.

I have a small collection of military edged weapons.

Love hunting ... sometimes with a camera instead of a rifle. Love the outdoors.

Enjoy tinkering and fixing stuff.

Have a passion for the SFA Hilux!! It likes the outdoors / veld / bush / rocky trails and this forum as much as I do!

When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.


Life is like a jar of Jalapeño peppers ... what you do today, might burn your ass tomorrow.
Don't take life too seriously ..... no-one gets out alive.
It's not about waiting for storms to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.
And be yourself ..... everyone else is taken!
