What activity or hobby would you like to start doing again?

I'd love to start doing model rocketry again. Or playing the piano. Maybe someday I will.

I'd like to get back into going hiking up in the Hudson Highlands like I used to do with my friend Kurt. Or at least I'd like to go hiking a little more often than I do these days due to the distance involved. There's nothing quite like the view from the top of Breakneck Mountain on a cool autumn day. I'll have to go there soon.

Rockets! I was in 4-H for about as long as you can be a member...I did rocketry for many years. Got a few trophies out of the deal, too. 'They' say rocketry enthusiasts generally go through three steps. The first, as a youth, when they first get introduced to the hobby. The second generally occurs around late high school or college, when you drop out of participating. The third, sometime in mid-adulthood when you realize 'hey this is really cool and I used to do this as a kid and I can do even neater things now!' I'm somewhere in the second stage. :)

I used to be a real good trombone player, back in high school. I played on and off through college, too, but never with the same intensity. I've pretty much lost any skill I had, and I think my instrument has deteriorated due to neglect, but I still miss playing...

I'd like to get back into playing music again. I was a pretty good trumpet player about 20 years ago, and some days I miss it. But I don't have a band to play with or time to practice. Rather pointless to even think about it.

And Jim; I overheard someone say that you know you're a real musician if you've ever contemplated putting slick50 on your slide... you are hopeless if you've actually done it! :)

Ah, rockets. Maybe I'll teach them to my daughter. Once you've dealt with the real thing the hobby loses its appeal for some reason.
