One of my best friends growing up was obsessed with cars and mechanics (and is now a mechanic/classic car restorer) and we spent a lot of time tinkering with engines, rebuilding lawn mowers, tuning up field motorbikes, etc. It was great fun and I still look back very fondly on it -- I guess not so many people can say they've completely taken a car engine to bits and put it back together!

Another friends was a massive scaletrix (slot car) fan, and had a great track in his garage, and we spent many hours there shooting-the-shit and racing slot cars.

When I was younger, it was definitely riding my bicycle around and exploring the countryside -- make tree houses and "bases" and running around all day exploring. Great fun!
