As everyone else, firearms. I'm pretty into home renovation as of late. I'm a pretty big geek at work too, as I do R&D, but more in the field than in the lab.

Philosophically Liberal and Fiscally Conservative. The older I get $ is more important than my opinions on social issues...so the older I get the more Republican I vote...today was a hard one.

Registered Professional Engineer, Civil, Structural and Corrosion so I'm a great D-90 owner. I appreciate anything well made / designed. I like solid state, mechanical workings that can be fixed with intuition and ingenuity. My screen name says it all.

Pinball machines, gear of any kind, firearms, knives, skiing, camping, anything outside.

Rather have it and not need it then need it and not have it- which is why I have a roof rack. I do admire the minimalists attitude though.

Good to see climbers here..
5.13!!! Dang. I topped out at 5.12 on a good day. Can pretty much climb 5.10 off the couch but that is purely from years of experience and nothing else. Ice is a whole other ball game and something I dabbled in a bit. I recently bought a new ice axe to use for ski mountaineering and when I went into the garage to put it away I laughed as I set it next to my 10 other ice axes and ice tools that never get used.
Now I just enjoy getting out and climbing and don't worry about grades anymore. Just love being outside.

I hear you about grades, and it don't mean a thing. I've cruised 5.12, pushed 13, and at the same time had 5.10s kick my ass. After a lifetime of climbing from when it was underground society to national fad, I can tell you that the best climbers are the well rounded climbers with experience, no matter what grade. I have seen advanced climbers killed on
below their level grades, and I've rescued climbers who were more advanced than me. "The skill" as I call it, is temperance, judgment, and experience. The training, whatever level you bring it to, is just the tool.
Dude, if yur climbing 5.10 off the couch with experience, you know what I'm talking about...
