What are your other hobbies?

Other meaning what do you spend your time doing other than working on your rig? Here are my two main "other" hobbies. I used to be an avid MTB rider but my fat butt has not been on a bike in about 2 years. Here is a picture of one of my bikes, a Ventana I have a bunch of different bikes. Just depends on what I am doing that day. Talk about being able to blow a pile of cash. And these you have to pedal.

Then this a picture of my 4x4 rock crawler. 1st picture is a while ago. I had to include it to show my old 03 7.3 that I used to have.

This a more current picture of the crawler.

In this picture the gal behind the rig with the long brown hair is a photographer from a national mag called Crawl that is sent out every 2 months. Pictures of my Zuke have been in 5 of the 6 issues in 07.

Moves my stuff around.

FLY FISH!!! And other things that support the first, like tying flies (winter hobbie ) ummmm, that's about it. I stay plenty busy between work, fishn' and wrenching on the truck when I can afford to do something.

Oh, I always try to get some hunting / 4-wheelin' in during the fall, (moose mostly, bear, dall's sheep, mt. goat and caribou if I get to em')


Rainbow trout, never mind the f-uped fly line


Arctic Grayling


A couple Arctic foxes from a few years ago
