Well for us it will be the highways and parks in the great outdoors


without the snow of course :D



Well this summer I will be spending a lot of time in class and lab. So that can be my hobby.

I am turning into a gear head. Just a couple weeks ago I picked up a 95 neon for 200 bucks. I am debating if I should throw a cage in it and race, or get it in great condition and use my current daily driver for the race car, as the 95 is sadly in better shape.

Good thing I am still young. I have years to make up my mind :D

When I'm not workin' on model trains I'm workin' on cars or fishing. It's good to have a couple different hobbies so you don't get burned out.
