whats your obsession? (besides bikes of course)

What do you guys do/mess around with/ collect on your spare time? Just a hobby or anything that isn't bike/car related. Here's mine.......rapidly growing. The pic is about a quarter of my collection, I have the rest scattered here and there.

Combat knives, brass knuckles, butterfly knife, switchblades, full aluminum billy club, recurve crossbow, and a Beretta px4 storm 9mm. I have more swords, machetes, and blades of the sort laying abouts the house.

I really enjoy powder coating stuff. Idk why. I guess I like to take old things and make them new again.

My house. It was built in 1860 and I am slowly repairing and restoring as well as sorting out some of it's history. I found a hidden staircase & the gas lines from the original gas lighting were still live.

Re: whats your obsession? (besides bikes of course)

While maybe not my "obsession" I find people to be a never ending source of wonder and amazement.
I'm in a consumer relations position and like the kid who sees dead people...I see angry people all day long.
I love being the spin doctor of customer service.
Tanking that angry customer, the one who swears they will never work with us again and have them leave laughing or at least happier than when they arrived at my door.
For me that makes all the difference and continues to reward me 25 years into it.
I still look forward to going to work and look forward to what the day brings me good/bad or indifferent.

Re: whats your obsession? (besides bikes of course)

I have a bunch of seasonal obsessions so really they are just hobbies, track days, video games, guitars, guns, Cleveland sports, Ohio State football and basketball, home improvement projects. The only hobby that crosses all boundaries is the beer drinking.

Except while riding bikes or handling guns.
