Real Life Interests and Hobbies

It is very difficult to summarize all of my interests, and who I am in a single blog, let alone a few paragraphs. This section of my blog is about my life in the physical realm. I have listed the topics in an order in which they are currently important to me. To understand more about who I am, I suggest you view the About Me page.


Electronics

Electronics has been an interest since I was about 16. It began as a hobby, but once it became the core traits of my professions, it lost its value as a hobby. In any case, I do encourage people to learn about electronics, and enjoy mentoring on the topic. I have even considered setting up a hack-lab of sorts for people to explore and build things under my guidance.


Emergency Response Work

From 'Founding' a volunteer response group, to participating in a Volunteer Fire Hall. My desire to help and volunteer myself to protect others has been with me much of my life. These days, I am not overly active in emergency response work. However, will still jump into action if needed.


Nature and Camping

From my wild wolf encounter, to stories of my camping and hiking experiences, I enjoy the outdoors. And this is my portal to share those stories with you.


Trains

From Model Railroading to Heavy Freight, I have been interested, and involved in various aspects of rail transportation.


Vehicle Maintenance & Off-Roading

Motor Vehicles have always been an interest of mine, since childhood, where I played with HotWheels, to my adult life where I have been modifying and working on vehicles in all sorts of ways. This category covers my exploits in maintenance, modifying, and off-roading antics.

Music and Sound Production

Music and Sound Production has been not only an interest, but also a profession for me. Having mixed many bands, and worked in studios, halls, and bars, I have been experienced with many types of audio production. I have also worked in studio design / construction work.

Ham Radio

Ham Radio is a unique hobby for those who may be technically minded. Sadly it is not overly popular with younger people today, but it does have a lot of cool factor, and potential. Sure it is easy to talk to friends around the world using the internet and the latest app, but imagine how many switches, and servers that chat conversation must pass through? when, you could in theory have the same conversation with a 5 watt wireless radio.


Photography

Photography is an older hobby of mine, which I have drifted away from due to having less free time to wander around aimlessly. However, here I share some of my photographic captures.

Some other posts which are considered to be 'general' posts.

There are a few photos of me working in Radio when I was younger.
