Nothing as specialized as that. I’m on real tight budget these days, so I’m just doing little upgrades on my commuter bike. It’s a public bike, just like an old-fashioned, aluminum road bike. If the hobby really sticks, I see myself ending up with a proper road bike and something for gravel/camping/whatevs. Those are the two areas that I’m already really into and I’m just making it work on the bike I have.

None of my hobbies are as costly or as gear oriented as music making.

These are mostly:
- cycling, of which I have a cheap (€400) single speed one. Though this might get converted to carry things and whatnot for city living and I might get a better one for fun if I have the use for it.
- cooking, though I keep the gear simple and affordable, it’s more about making solid combinations of tasty and healthy.
- reading, mostly science fiction / heroic fantasy or nerd things like economics.
- I’m also a big cars, airplanes and trains and energy / power generation nerd, but that’s mostly about documentaires and books.
- I do sports like going to gym and yoga and some running, but same as cycling, not very gear oriented (a pair of running shoes I like, a couple pairs of tights and shirts and a rain jacket for running... a backpack with chucks, water and a towel for the gym...)
- I do however collect socks and have to admit enjoying shopping for clothes every once in a while.

I guess that’s about it.

I consider myself a fairly serious home cook. Ms. Diver may be a master baker, but she will wholly admit that I can a knife much better than she can.

I used to play rugby and SCUBA dive, but the former ended after my joints were practically disintegrated. I also have an eye condition that keeps me from doing the latter. I can still snorkel and shallow dive, though, but have been too busy with work and life to really get out and splash.

Strangely, though, I can still lift heavy and do Olympic lifting. Also, living in Austin gives me access to a LOT of rivers, so I may take an interest in rowing/canoeing/kayaking in lieu of diving. I already use a row machine for cardio, so why not do the real thing?

The only "nice" books I have are Tolkien books. I have a lot of free used stuff, and usually go for the cheaper pockets if buying new.

That's a funny way of spelling "Oghma Infinium"
