Planes and flying. I've had this passion and near obsession since I was 7 years old when my Uncle took my up in his old Piper Super Cub.

When I was 15, my Uncle had a fixed wing 2 seater Ultralite, and for the weeks that we traveled to Montreal, he would school me on flight, and eventually, under his tutelage, took the controls for taxi, takeoff, circuit, and landing on a private air strip in Quebec.

It's an outstanding feeling to be that free.
I have 152's a 172 under my belt, and this year, for the hunting lodge, my Brother-In-Law's best Friend has offered to to allow me to take the controls of his DHC-2 Beaver for a bit. I've never taken of nor landed with an amphibious, but just the fun of being allowed to fly one should be very cool.

Hunting and Golfing are my others.

I have fond memories of pushing the pedals of my road bike out in the middle of nowhere with nothing but my thoughts and the sound of my tires on the road....for hours .[/QUOTE]

I used to enjoy riding too. My back has gotten worse over the years. There are some nice trails in the southern part of the state. My favorite is the one outside of Tunnel Hill Illinois. There's a long trestle that crosses a ravine that is beautiful in the fall as well as the tunnel lol. I walked across that trestle when I was a kid and it was still an active line. That was some scary shit!

That's one I've always wanted to do, but not likely I'll ever get the chance

I hear you there, Tony. I used to love dirt biking. My will says "YES!!", but my back says "OH HELL NO!!".

I can still ride DB's but no where near like I used to in my younger years.

This is another hobby from the past ...

You're one of those guys that doesn't do anything halfway I'm guessing!

Cooking is something which went from a means to keep from starving to something I really enjoy. I spend a great deal of time in the kitchen. In fact, that's where I am now waiting on my taters to cook so I can make potato salad later.

Cooking can be a great hobby. Way back when I got into bread baking pretty heavy. When my ass got too big for my Harley, I moved on to other stuff

Never say never, Bob. I'm don't about flight lesson criteria in your area, but most flight schools will allow you to take the controls at some point depending on your knowledge.

The one here in Oshawa, (Oshawa Flight Center) you pay $150 for a one hour flight in a Cessna 152 (A little more for a 172), but you get a quick ground lesson, go through the visual and physical ground check inspection of the plane, checking the engine fluids, fuel check for contamination, run through the start up checklist, run up checklist and so forth. The instructor will allow or deny taxi, take off and landing given experience, or lack there of, but you will be given control at some point.

Check with your local flight school, and have fun

I have been tempted more than once by the paraplanes. Seems like a quick way to get into the air.
