Guys, I think the original question was what hobbies you have that you can pursue within your Airstream... not use your Airstream to pursue.

We use the Silver Pullit as a base for: Hiking, & almost any aspect of Natural History (in the classical sense) including microscopy, astronomy, geology, archaeology, paleontology, botany, meteorology, pot luck AM radio off the Heavyside layer, photography, minimalist camp-cookery. We camp mostly in the desert areas of the southwest and try to learn as much history as we can about where we happen to be. All of the above, of course, in a most informal and amateur way

We are into bikes that we carry in the Airstream and TV, they include recumbents, old schwinns and folders. We are into railroads, I like steam engines so much our kitchen at home has two O. Winston Link prints and two RR lanterns. One of the lanterns belonged to DH's (RedSHED) great uncle who worked the RR. We have a print of the Train Station in Portland, OR where we got off Amtrak on our honeymoon trip. I've taken up knitting again (socks lately) and plan to take some projects along on camping trips. Our daughter collects rocks, though not in any organized fashion, yet.

I guess we don't have any RR stuff in the A/S but we have used it to stop at some RR museums. This photo was taken from the train ride at French Lick Indiana.

Actually, this is what I had in mind in starting the thread. Most of us like to do a wide variety of outside activities, but I was more cuirous on what folks did for actual hobbies that are done inside (or maybe outside on a nice day).

A lot of outside activities are hobbies (car collecting, train watching etc.) It would also be nice to hear about things like wood carving - needle point - quilting - scrapbooking - painting too. Overander63 has an interesting hobby with a model railroad in his Stream!

It's nice to hear about all of it, but let's not lose sight of the inside things too.

Yep, Robert Cross, we have the Steam Engine, Drive-In, Airplane Movie Print and also (my personal favorite) 2143 on a round table.

Did you notice that if you look in the car's rear view mirror you can see the photographers shirt collar? (Doesn't belong to the car's driver, he is wearing a t-shirt.)

fishing - both fly & tackle , photo taking for my own use.
I also build table top fountains out of sea shells and other "found" objects. If I can figure out how to post a photo, I will put up one of a pair of oyster shell fountains.
Also I like to make brass & copper flowers, mostly roses. This does require a small cutting torch so MUST be done OUT SIDE the AS.
I can always find some new stuff to do.

Claude,

Those tabel top fountains look great! Are they large enough to hide a pump in the bottom?

I am a quilter and a banjo picker. (Stop shuddering, you guys!) On our most recent trip to New Mexico, I took the sewing machine and supplies and sewed block after block. In June we are heading to Wisconsin and have a spot reserved at Wysalusing State Park overlooking the confluence of the Wisconsin and Mississippi Rivers. I will be setting up outside during the day if warm and sunny enough and sewing away. The kitchen counter is just the right height for rotary cutting and pressing. Other than the sewing machine, everything is light and easily portable.

For those within in earshot, don't worry, the banjo playing stays inside with the doors and windows shut. I am a closet picker.

Caryl, don't let anyone "dis" your banjo....your playing might be another matter.

Take it outside

I've done a little banjo pickin and strumming myself. Haven't used my banjo in a number of years, but have a banjo ukelele or "banjolele" as some call it. Much easier to carry in a 17' Caravel than a full size banjo. Same with my Guitar. Now play a ukelele. Both are lots of fun around the campfire with a group.

Fun stuff

Royce,
Yes they hide the small pump under the botom shells. There are two shell attached so they form a "groto" for the pump.
I use a plastic catch pan that is used on a 20" flower pot to hold the water and the fountain stands in that. I also put some gravel and other shells around the tower.

These take a bit of work as the shells are selected from an Oyster farm. I then have to boil the shells, cool them, use a wire wheel on a 6" bench grinder to remove the barnacles, boil them again and then they are ready for selection for the fountain.
I always do the above steps here at home and just carry the "ready to go" shells in the RV.

It just depends on what I feel like doing, roses or fountains or ? ,on any given trip as to what I take along.

I am wondering what a fountain made with the Oyster Shells glued together with "vulkem" type sealer. Would they look kind of "Airstreamy" ?

I have used stainless steel but never with rivits. Maybe have to try that too.
Aluminum works easy but not good for a fountain. Corodes and all that nasty stuff.

So many things to do and not enough days. Shukey Darns & Golly Gee Wizz......
