Default how much time on THT?

just curious, how much time do you spend on THT daily? seems like I spend too much time "killing time" I'm on during class most days and browse around at night while watching TV or whatever. Not sure of an exact amount of time, but it's more than needed. Oh well, everything worth learning I can learn on THT anyway!

I travel a lot - sometimes starting at 4am to get somewhere where I work until 7. Then I spend every other week in a hotel room, including weekends.
Then I travel internationally a lot.
I guess my job and life really is 7X24 so I tend to be on here a lot at all sorts of odd times during the day and night, from airports and hotel rooms, and when I want, from the office.

I have no idea how many hours but I don't tend to sit on here for hours - more popping and out regularly - so I guess if you add it all up maybe an hour or two a day elapsed.

Ditto on the travel with the RV lifestyle so Laptop stays on all the time. Hook and book, and have that time between loading and unloading to bounce online. Why I"m always on you guys about your spelling.
Check e mails on threads I get I've entered but actually bouncing looking around 1 hour or less. Tidalfish, Corvette Forum, 2 Truckers forum, work and a couple of others get there share......
Don't play with the computer @ home unless GF is not there which is almost never. Rules from the lady. .. THT and others are fun with free time while working. .

A lot, I was a victim of a red light runner almost 2 years ago. And now this is what I do the office chair is the most comfortable. I'm able to make and rig lures and glance up to things here on THT and other fishing sites

Maybe THT could add an hour meter? Give out a "I don't have a life" prize at the end of the year?

it would be interesting to see if there was a correlation b/t exam grades and time spent on THT, an hour meter would be cool but I probably don't wanna know

Just as with several other replies above, i travel a lot also. Try to jump on daily, sometimes more than once. Have gathered a lot of usable information from all the wealth of knowledge, whether it be concerning preventive maintenance, polishing products or just the pulse of what is happening in the industry.

I usually check in after 9P.M. or so for a couple of hours - every day.

Then, when I go to bed, I set the alarm for 2-3A.M. and get up to view the Sand Bar - AFTER the wife is sound asleep. I'll get back to bed around 6A.M.. ;?

Regards,

First thing in the am I log onto THT and look around a little, then when i get to the office I will look again.

Lot of times at work I am on hold for extended periods of time and will poke around some then.

At night I cruise THT again while watching tv, also look at several other sites relating to hunting/fishing/golf/Ebay

Guess it is my ADD but honestly THT is one of the more rounded sites I go to, LOT of subjects covered and discussed

I am thinking about setting a timer on my watch, and give myself a 5 minute limit per site. Then it would be read only, because I type to slowly to reply.

I'm here at 4:30 on a Saturday afternoon. I think that says I'm here too much.

Not sure how much time I spend on THT but a great deal. I would probaly hold the record for time on THT if it were being recorded. Maybe we do need a time meter so I will realize where my day goes amd get more honey do's completed around our two homes. Since retiring and joining THT I find myself on here for several hours Monday through Friday and occassionaly on Sunday evening late. Very interesting forum. Some very informative while many are just a way for many to vent their frustrations and to share their thoughts. Fish at least one day each week providing weather permits.;?
