What I do when I'm not Boxstering...

Post a pic of something you enjoy doing when you're not driving your Boxster, repairing your Boxster, modding your Boxster, or paying for your Boxster (going to work)!

Here's mine, which is lathe work. I've posted my pens here before, but this is where the magic happens. You can't see the Boxster, but it's about three feet behind me there in the garage.

Just got back from St. Thomas and B.V.I. where I and some friends chartered a
41 foot Catamaran. The beach is Cow Wreck Beach, Anegada.
I also race on a U.S.25 out of MBYC - got a 2nd place finish last Sunday.

Can't wait for the spring, riding inside on a trainer stinks vs. being out.

I volunteer at the Door of Hope Door of Hope: Transitional Housing Program

Door Of Hope is dedicated to helping entire families with children go from homelessness to self-sufficiently to permanent housing. The faith-based organization is committed to providing a safe, nurturing home environment for homeless families who are serious about getting their lives back on track. Since 2006, Door of Hope has a 100% success rate among families that have successfully completed the program and returned to the community as productive and self-sufficient residents, maintaining long term stability after graduating, and never returning to homelessness again.

Tony, I would agree. You need a hobby that is not computer related. Get your brain working a completely different way and you'll discover that you're even more creative when behind the computer programming.

Awesome thread!!

I played some college hockey WAAAAAAAY back in the day. Now that I'm way older and my old aching bones are slower, I play on a couple of mens "beer league" teams for fun and exercise.



Cheers

Mark
