All of the above plus...

I think we do a little of about everything mentioned above.

I will add one that I enjoy. The night skies. Especially if you are far enough away from the light pollution that is becoming so prevalent. Like most hobbies, it can get expensive, but it does not have to be that way. At the same time, the worst thing you can do is buy a cheap telescope to start with. You will be so disappointed and frustrated that you give up right away.

The same binoculars you use for bird watching will serve as a start. Get out your camp lounge so you can lay back and pan the skies. Next you need a flash light with a red bulb or covered with red cellophane to preserve your night vision. Last, before a trip I always print out the monthly night sky guide that you can find at:

Skymaps.com - Publication Quality Sky Maps & Star Charts

Find an astronomy club and go to one of their star parties if you get the bug. Lots of good help there.

Astronomy Clubs world wide

Clear skies...

We would never have time to be bored, the old addadge "so many things, so little time!", but I've not seen anyone mention "geocaching" yet. Very entertaining, time consuming and fun.

We're so busy when at home, travel and camping means more relaxed time to talk, appreciate each other, and have adult time.

...... and often good exercise too! I always print off a bunch of geocache sheets when we are heading to a particular location, and more often than not we find time to do at least some of them. There id an afdded advantage in that they often lead you to scenic spots nown to the locals who placed the caches, and that you would not otherwise find.


As well, we always tike a couple of inexpensive and well used mountain bikes and always get use out of them.


Being a bit of a "gadget" guy, I often take an old metal detector that I have along too although it doesn't seem to get used all that often - just if I spot a place that looks promising and where I believe it to be allowed.


The latest hobby is (trying) to learn to play the banjo - I try to play it very quietly in consideration of folk who may not like it quite as much as me, and only for a short while partaking of a libation or three before our evening meal, sometimes while tending the BBQ!

How about horsing (is that a word?). I've been doing quite a bit of horse camping --- course, you need someone to pull the horse trailer! That is, until I get a hitch added to my trailer.

At the end of the month I'm going back to Live Oak FL and try a new place: 7BarL Ranch. The owner offered us the use of a generator if the few powered sites are taken ... hummmmmmmm We'll see.

Otherwise I just enjoy the outdoors in a relaxing manner. Sometimes I paint or sketch. During my Thanksgiving trip, I plan to (finally) do my Christmas cards. Well, at least I'm planning to do that. Likely they'll sit in the box again this year

Our intentions include traveling short distances to places where we can park right at where we are working on a mural somewhere....just like the contractors do when they do their thing with a SOB on their worksites. I am not hip to the idea of spending too much time driving and pulling the AS around (too dangerous) (and gas consumeing) so...we hope to leap from job to job, and this way we get to see America,and work at what I do best, and not have crack head neighbors. I want lots of space between me and others at all times. Also bring the digital camera along.! This way we can be out by the highways painting...and folks will drive by and they will say 'Look at that Airstream Herbert!

While in the MH all the comforts of home, then get up in the morning and discover what the new place has to offer. Still trying to figure out how to carry kayaks and bikes, maybe a new toad we can do both.

We teach our son about nature (he is 7) and do many science experiements. We go hiking, beachcombing (have put a message in a bottle in the Pacific Ocean - he is very excited) and pretty much spend as much time outdoors taking our lunches to go in our backpacks and retreating back into our Airstream when the sun sets.

Let's see, what to do, what to do.....

When on the road, and at a "spot", if I see another AS, I get in their business, you know, introduce myself, and start a conversation (NOTE: can always see the white of my wife's eyes as they roll up and to the back of her head , "you don't know those people!", oh...., yeah...., wife thinks I'm crazy!). Usually ends up in a pot luck dinner, and good conversation.
