If my friends and neighbors think kiting isn't nerdy enough, there's my cycling addiction, which comes with...interesting and loud gear:

We do Street Rods and vintage travel trailers.

Not nerdy, but loads of fun.

Astronomy (outdoors with telescopes, indoors with astro-friends)

Scuba (Caribbean reefs when budget allows)

and, necessarily, work for a living so I can afford a to fly a kite and do the others.

read (2 or 3 books a day sometimes)
Hang out in kite forums
Play with electronic gadgets
Watch movies (1400 movies; a mix of old and new on my system)
A bit of boating (no, that's not right. A boat is a tool to get you on the water; that's what I like. Still not quite right; I DO like boats. It's just that what most people seem to mean by "boating" is something like: hanging out with friends and oh, yeah, it's nice if there is a boat and some water involved. Think of Ratty's quote from Wind In The Willows: "There is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.")
...and one of these days, maybe I'll get around to a bit of kite flying.

I have to say: being retired is good. I could still use another 24 hours in every day and not get bored.

I tend to read a lot as well, but since I spend all day hunched at a computer or in meetings, I need to find interruptions for my back and shoulders. And I totally agree with you and Ratty re. boats. My preferred mode of boating - sailing, requires planning and maintenance -not my strong suits!

But you do have some nice spots for boating nearby.
Cowboy, rocks in your pockets couldn't hurt.

Within 2 hours of where I live in Las Vegas, yeah. Lake Mead is an hour away, but the water is frightening to look into Posted Image

The only boating I do is the connotation described above in --Pete's post Posted Image

Oh, yeah! Living surrounded by the Great Lakes (and a fair number of inland lakes as well) is a great place to live if you like being on the water.

I've been out of sight of land for nearly a week on the lakes (long-ways down Lake Huron, in fog, against the wind - pre-GPS and pre-LORAN!). A Sailing Story tells the tale. I'm nearly the last alive able to tell that tale. (I should go back to my original slides and scan some decent hi-res versions of the pictures for that page. I first put that on my website when people were surfing the Web with 1200 Baud modems. I checked Wikipedia; that may be an exaggeration. Modems were getting up to 9600 for reasonable prices by then.)

As big as the GL are, fresh-water lakes are fundamentally different from salt water for boating. Not sure why.

A little mnemonic for those who like them: HOMES - Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie, Superior - the 5 Great Lakes (in a fairly useless order, but SMHEO or OEHMS don't spell anything very memorable).
