Jim, Materials - Grayslake
Over the years, I have accumulated multiple hobbies. I find myself spending a lot of my free time fishing. I am lucky that I live in an area with a lot of lakes close by, otherwise my hobby wouldn’t be as easy to pursue. When my son was younger, we would go out and fish together all the time. He is older now, but we still try to make it out to the lake as often as we can.
Another one of my hobbies is automobile races. My family and I used to go to a race in August at Road America in Wisconsin every year. Now that my kids are all grown up, my wife and I go to the races together. We normally camp and tailgate, which makes it a fun weekend to look forward to!
Something else that my wife and I do together is scuba diving. While my wife has advanced up in the levels of scuba certification, I have remained on the open water certification level. Even though she is technically more advanced than I am, we both really enjoy exploring the ocean together. Our favorite place to go scuba diving is St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Believe it or not, my wife has been there 18 times and I have been 4 times. We love the reefs and aquatic animals that are around the reefs by the islands. We have a trip planned this upcoming March to go again!
