Railroad anvils are nice too, I used one for a while for making my armor. I upgraded to a decent 25 pounder though. Once I move into a place away from noise complaints I will upgrade to a 75lb or maybe even a 150lb.

Anvils are abundant down here. Not cheap, but easy to find. The railroad track thing is genius. How much do they weigh?

I would say mine is about 15 lbs. It's slightly bigger than the 1 in the picture.

I have two kids (4 and 6) so they take a lot of my time. And 5 indoor cats, each better than the last!
Recently I've gotten very into lifting heavy (weightlifting) and I'm feeling pretty badass these days. I didn't see anyone else mention that! I also enjoy running.

This summer I'm really looking forward to engaging in more outdoor stuff like hiking and biking. I've never done these things before but this is the first year since I was a teen where my physical fitness level will accommodate such things.

I also enjoy reading, and "collecting" hobbies. I like to start new hobbies and then discard them. I love researching and learning things, because I'm weird.

Shellyx the photo of Marley was so cute and funny. I had to show it to my hubby and he loved it.

Mebbid wins for unusual (and awesome!) hobbies imo!

Wow these are some very cool hobbies ! I know there are places near enough to where I live that do allot of Viking & Celtic re-enactments.

I love rc cars, although havent pulled them out in years. I have a bunch of older cars and trucks if any of you rc people would like them. Rc10t's and rc10t 2. Give em to a hobbiest for shipping. Just like to see them have a loving home and not in a box. As for me i have 2 XL pitbulls, also known as monster pits. Theyre huge, muscley, babies. Think theyre lapdogs, lol. I also am an avid disc golfer. I do tournaments, and run leagues. Go kaw valley disc golf, and K.U. disc golf team. I also have an 11 yr old son, and am a single dad and chef. So cooking is a hobby as well as profession.

Hey Poppa I've done the chef thing for years now. Currently unemployed as my work schedule combined with my wife's work schedule left our kids without somewhere to go. Chef life is a rough one at times. Long long days and crappy hours. I've cooked inside a country club for nearly 10 years now.

Are the r/c's RTR? I may be interested in one if so!


Also I think it's cool that so many people here share common interest. Sucks that every one is so spread apart, because I think an AA MEET & GREET would be dope haha
