Your Backup Hobby
One other hobby is that I host a Beer Olympics every year. I'll put out the invite to the group in case anyone wants to make the trip to West Michigan for the soiree'.

If I can't score tickets and am in town, I may go to the Fest. I would like to knock back some local stuff on Saturday though. Keep me in mind when you are planning Saturday shenanigans. I haven't had a good brewery crawl in a while.
Hobby terrain modeling used to be, it was too time consuming.
Sport used to be, then I discovered sex and substances.
Reading used to be but that's too time consuming too.
Trolling the web used to be but I'm not a dick at heart and it grew tiresome.
Board games were rarely a primary hobby, to be fair, and I'm always at a loss for people to play with now.
Guitar is a relatively new hobby but as with all my other hobbies, time is a precious commodity.
If I had to have a primary hobby, it's shooting pool. I've shot pool for 15 years solid. This last month is the longest continuous period of not playing in all that time (19 days).
I guess I don't have a legit backup. Work seems to be it. I work my day job, then I remodel my house. Or someone else's. Or I build furniture or put a roof on something or build a workbench.
I guess writing was a backup hobby but I've realized that few people read what I write and I have no time so perhaps that's passed too.
Hell, I don't even drink or use anymore.

If I was Rockefeller rich, I'd go into the education sector. Institutions everywhere that would be open to the public to educate kids and anyone who wanted to bother. Free of charge. Seeing as how the system failed, we need privately funded education that will raise up the disenfranchised. I'd hope to put private colleges out of business, or at least make them bring their a game if they want to be considered a contender.
One time I was so gone, i could barely stay on my feet let alone have the dexterity to sweep the rock/stone (I forget what they're called) while sliding on ice at an alarming speed. Anyway, my legs go up in the air and the rock/stone (i forget what they're called) is coming right at my big stupid Canadian head, i just barely lift it out of the way in time before i would have created a new red spot (house?) to aim for.
i'm glad I gave it up
The last couple years I've been learning Clojure as I started tinkering with the jinteki.net codebase in the early days, to the point of eventually getting the development environment running on my Macbook, and becoming one of the core contributors (though I've tailed off quite a bit in the last couple months due to real life).
