In his spare time Bohle plays Senior AA hockey for the Lethbridge Lightening, skateboards, snowboards, golfs, plays tennis, hikes, learns new instruments (most recently the accordion), goes on archaeological digs, meditates and learns about quantum physics, ancient societies, theoretical physics and theosophical philosophies. He loves chilling with his old pal, Dax, his dog and exploring the spirit world.
