I'm a grandfather who enjoys outside activities i.e. Hunting, Fishing, Motorcycles, RC Cars and crashing RC Quads.
I use solving the 3x3 for relaxation. I started cubing when I was quitting smoking. It kept my hands busy. I keep a cube with me when I am out and about. While waiting I am either solving a cube or reading my Kindle. I use the beginner method and would like to get faster times, however, I don't want to stress over having to be faster.
I have a couple of the Rubik's brand 3x3 cubes but my favorites are the QiYi/MoFangGe brand transparent stickerless cubes.
