Apart from our obvious addiction to all things paintball & milsim markers.....
What other hobbies and passions does our tribe have?
Want to see pics & vids people.

My hobbies are MTB-ing...Ive been riding bikes all my life.
i've had all kinds & had 2 motorbikes.
Had a MTX Kawasaki KX60 Laughing Laughing
It was an awesome little crosser with an evil "Power band"..cost me £40 from a park keeper who'd found it. lol!
It'd rocket off with a 21stone man on it easily...haha affraid
Also had a Suzuki intruder road bike (Harley clone).
That got nicked...had it years too.
And currently have a very cool Full suspension MTB bike
That I got a loan for, as my last one was 2nd hand to begin with & just started dying (everywhere).
So it was time for a change.
I do around 50 miles a week on it minimum...going to work n back in all weathers.
Have done for 7 or 8 years...so I'm pretty fit. :)

I'm a keen gardener, as I did an apprenticeship in Hard Landscaping with my local council.
Ran in the most prestigous flower show in the world & came 3rd....gutted.
"The Chelsea Flower Show"...Our display was next to Prince Charles's :pale:
Also worked for a charity doing landscaping when I was 15 & 16
For a charity called BTCV.....the British Trust for Conservation Volunteers.
Went on working weekends with em too & got drunk every night...haha Razz Very Happy bounce
It was awesome & kept me off the streets & taught me ALL-SORTS.
I'm a very practical kinda guy.
On the council I Built bridges, did stone work, did timber work, building benches round trees n stuff, built a 2 massive gardens for one of the most popular parks in Leeds...with a budget of 3 million Very Happy
Looked after 20 football pitches & used to marke em out every week.
Also had to take em down every season & they weighed an absolute tonne.
Taught in gardening & machine use for a bit too.
Ran a park for around 3 or 4 years...ish


I also LOVE painting & sketching occasionaly.
I did loads of massive disney pics in Jakes room on the walls.
The last place we lived he had a 6 foot tall Tigger & a 4 foot Pooh bear and Piglet.

I used to do tattoo's but wasn't very good....lol
Long story....hahah.

Do weights & cardio stuff.....I've slacked off quite a bit recently though.
Quite alot in fact.

And thats about it.
I LOVE MOVIES from the 80's-ish to Now....ish....Im very picky with my faves ....lol

And I'm going to see "Wrath of the Titans" in 3D tommorrow with me bro..so can't wait for that.

And thats about it for me.....
I'll post pic's when I've got time and can be bothered.....hahaha 👅

Hmmmm let's see...

I use to bike all the time, but 2 of my bikes got stolen and just never got another one. I also had a wheelchair I got out of the garbage, use to ride wheelies up and down the block with it. Fell back one too many times on it and the back bar broke so back to the trash it went. I want to find another one even though people say it's bad luck to play with things like that.

I also enjoy modding, video games to be exact. I mod single player mostly and the occasional WaW zombies lol! I mod because it makes the game that much more fun for me, most games bore me rather quickly.

I do a bit of graphic work on the side, use to be apart of a gaming community and had my own shop there along with about 5 other people who did it as well. So people had their options of who's style they liked or who they thought was the best. Here is the link to my photobucket album. A few of the pages are userbars that I made for the different clans. Some of the sigs aren't the best (creative juices weren't flowing at the time) but hey I enjoy doing it.

I also enjoy working on cars, I am taking automotive in high school right now and next year I should be going to college for automotive as well (hoping I graduate affraid ). I truly love this, even though it can be nerve racking at times and plan on this being my career for the long run.

There's a lot of stuff I like to do, and for some reason it's always expensive...

After I got out of the Marines, I was really into the mma scene. I trained at the Des Moines mixed martial arts academy. A lot of guys I used to train with are in the UFC and other organizations now, so that's pretty cool getting to watch them compete. Once I got married and started having kids, there just wasn't time for it anymore. I loved doing it, but I had a new baby at the time, was working two jobs, and going to college. I also moved away from Des Moines. I thought about getting back into it, but the nearest camp around where I live now is about an hour away.

I'm a huge sports fan. Football, baseball, wrestling, and mma mainly. I follow all of Iowa's college teams, but since there are no pro teams here, I follow all of the Minnesota teams even though at the moment they are all terrible. Laughing Just loyal I guess.

I'm also a gamer. I'd say I probably play sports games the most, such as Madden. I do like a variety though. My favorite game of all time is Red Dead Redemption. I absolutely love that game, and have played it many times over. Still haven't gotten 100% completion yet though. Laughing

I love trying new beers. I'll try about anything. Some of my favorites are Trout Slayer, Pig's Eye (You Minnesotans should know this one), Guinness, Schell's Hefeweizen, and about anything from Millstream.

The thing I enjoy the most is being a father, husband, and a family man. Nothing in the world is better than watching your children learn and grow. I'm sure as my children get older, I'll take in some of their hobbies. Hopefully they take in some of mine too...as in paintball! Laughing

Well, fortunately or unfortunately(depends on how you look at it) I have a lot of hobbies.
1. Of course, top one is paintball....
But I also do a lot of air-smith work as well as Military Sim work(including modifying and building the guns). I tend to do it for free or at most cost for parts.

2. I also do riffle shooting and gun smith work(again for free or at cost).

3. Archery.

4. Hunting with riffle as well as with Bow and Arrow. I just haven't had time to go in last couple of years.

5. camping and fishing.

6. And lately been into Radio Control toys, including but not limited to Cars, Tanks and Helicopters. All electric, not into gas powered yet.

7. Also do computer repair and trouble shooting for friends as well as fun.

8. Video games, including for PC and PS3.

I am sure there are lot more I am missing. These are just hobbies, don't even include what I do for work to pay the bills. I just seem to not have enough time to do all things i want to do(or depending on how you look at it, I have too much time on my hands). As you can guest, I like to keep busy.
