Now that I'm not doing the gig photography I don't suppose I really have any hobbies as such.  I like to bake and find myself doing that a lot.  When the weather is good my dog and I go for long walks.

For me,

 

Nutritional science,

Physical and mental fitness, 

Finding the worlds hottest peppers, and eating them,

Cooking, and eating steaks. (They have to be cooked rare the way i like it, so timing has to be perfect)

Wrestling,

Golf, 

Cricket,

All sports basically. 

 

I also like a nice lady, and a good meal out. 

 

 

Ever tried your steak blue ?

That sounds a great way to spend a summers evening going out with your dog. What breed do you have?

 My hobbies right now are:

 

Living History/Reenacting

Paleolithic/Atlatl, Celtic Iron Age, 18th Century Dragoons

I use to do Norse, 16th Century Polish Hussar, 17th Century Pirate. 18th Century Artillery, and 18th Century light infantry

Sort of like living history, but not, I use to teach German medieval sword fighting (along with other weapons) and also did medieval armored tournaments (not choreographed, actual tournaments with steel dulled swords)

 

Making stuff (Wood/Metal/cloth)

so all of them are replicas of historical items

 

Archeology

I am with a group that helps the state archeologist

 

Cultural Anthropolgy

not sure what to say about that

 

Historical Dancing

I've done Morris, Medieval, Rennassaince, Contra (17th century), 18th century

 

Tai Chi Chuan

I do a combined style, with it lately going towards Sun Style

 

Herbalism/Apothecary

I like to learn about the plants and trees around that can help medicaly and or other usfull stuff

 

Medical

I like to learn about all types of medical stuff, mostly I like the old styles (Galin Based)

 

 

I'm not sure if it's considered a hobbie, but the woods.

I've always liked walking in the woods

 

 think that's it

 

Oh another re enactor eh, I used to do Iron Age from about 300 BCE to 200 AD so we could annoy the Romans and we did, they never liked us attacking their museum quality kit, yes, the Ermine Street Guard. But my crafts, the metalwork all came from my re enactment days where in the early nineties there was no specialist suppliers, we had to make everything ourselves and so it was loads of research and just go for it, where I was bronze casting in fields with the lost wax method ; beeswax and river clay. But my crafts now have a lot of ancient design about them where last winter I was selling bronze pen-annulars as scarf fastenings, once period discovered what they were and how useful they were, I cleared out my stock in a two days at a week long craft fair. But I will never forget the woad experiment, I had blue fingers for weeks.

 

But if I can get moving, I hope to be joining a medieval group this year who have asked me to get involved as the group features time period specific Ottoman dancing of which I am interested in getting involved in, bearing in mind I already do belly dancing. But no more battles, they are too dangerous and there is the ego problem out on the field, so living history for me only, dancing, trading and educating, also crafts skills using period specific tools and methods I have researched and made the tools where applicable.

 

But safe edged steel swords and spears we used them all the time and they still hurt and break bones when you get hit and one gig put seventeen re enactors in casualty for various weapon induced wounds and I have here an unfinished Romano British sword I scaled off an archeologist's report on the Stanwick fortifications, a rare wooden sheathed sword of which I have copied but in American Ash not English Ash and EN45 case hardened spring steel instead of iron- just got to do the bronze castings now to finish.
