There's always model boat or car racing. Those could happen in any part of the country and might be a good venue to meet people. I see the people at the boat pond in Central Park, with their little transistor control thingies, making the model boats sail, and they are always meeting and talking to people who walk up to them and ask them about their boats. And those model boats are very detailed and beautiful! I think it would be a relaxing hobby.

Oh, oh, can't you see? Love is the drug for me.
