If you could afford an eccentric hobby what would it be

For me I'd race NASCAR, or pro drag racing

Geocaching is fun.

Extreme geocaching would be a blast if I had the time and money.

Collecting, restoring, and playing with, military toys, especially from the WWII era. Some examples include:

1) A Wiley's JEEP
2) A pre-'86 Thompson
3) A BAR
4) A P-51 Mustang, complete with six pre-'86 .50s
5) A Sherman tank

Many others.

If I let you shoot my BAR, can I fire the cannon?

Civil war reenactment. You can get into pretty costly with uniforms and equipment (though you don't have too) but really the travel and time it takes is the real cost.

I'd be the next Hugh Hefner, back when he was young and could get it up on his own, without the little blue pill.

I's start a big ranch; not a cattle ranch, but a blonde ranch. Oh yeah, I'd run a few exotics - red heads and the like, but mainly blondes.

Yep. If I had the money for it, I think I'd make a hobby of restoring military planes from all generations back to proper flyable condition and original loadout. I'd love to log some time on the stick of a Spitfire, a P-38 Lightning, and a P-51 Mustang. Hell, I'd love to get some time on a B17. They had a mechanical computer for compensating for the speeds and distances between planes for the guns and I'd kill to get my hands on just one of those. I wonder if civvies can own stuff like an F16? Without the guns, of course, since I believe none of them would be eligible for the pre-86 cutoff.

I would also be travailing the world... either in my private jet, or sailing it in my giant sail boat.
