Default Winter entertainment

What are you doing with your down time this winter...?
Like most of us here, I love riding and its what I do for fun when I can.
I exercise and read all the time but those aren't "fun"..
With the bike stored, when its time to chill this winter..yep, even at 47 I'm still a PC Gamer Looking forward to finishing a couple games I haven't touched all summer and Dragon Age: Inquisition should take up the the cold dark days ahead.

I have been riding every stinking day but this 'inconvenient' cold snap had me pacing and restless last night. My laptop died for good. Wife is fussing $$ at me for drinking so drinking more water/coffee and playing with the dog. TV sucks except for the goodie about beavers I watched last night on PBS. I love that stuff! Need a new front tire. Fork is leaking. I can't fix it... don't have the tools or place or want to. Have every intention to get back into intense workouts. Fighting a bad cough.

So, if I had to put my bike up for an extended period, I would go absolutely nuts. I can handle a few days... maybe up to a week but that is IT!

I used to play MOH online all the time. Lots of fun!

I used to be a full-time gamer. CounterStrike for hours. Many MMORPGs. Even Skyrim lol.

Haven't had the time for it lately tho.

I keep going back and forth in my head regarding PCV/Cams/Tune or AFR+. I just won't have the money for the full-boat upgrade, but I may do the tuner over the winter and sell the Cobra.

I also got my glasspack mufflers back from the welder, and they look great. Can't wait to install them and see how they sound.

Winter around here means pretty much get up when its dark out and get home when its dark out, I spend my free time when I have nothing to do, gaming it up on the PC, Battlefield 3 and 4, skyrim.

Also do a lot of gunsmithing, nothing to hard, just stuff for friends or word of mouth stuff, trigger jobs, polishing, Zeroing. Right now I have been building AR-15 lowers/uppers and waiting on my jigs to start AK and HK builds, finally got a new welder so I can spend more time in the garage with that. I might try my hand at Metal art this year too.

I also sometimes just sit down at the computer and start to write, short stories and my own take on things, but once the ground thaws....Back outside I go.

Kinda saving up right now as I turn 30 in January and wanna have a good party, I'm thinking Vegas or New York.

I forgot about going to the range, which I do but....unfortunately I never found target shooting all that much fun, so I lump it with exercise and reading
