Re: Hobbies?

What?, you live in the Bay Area and you can't find any mushrooms? They were in plentiful supply back in the late 60s when I was there.

Re: Hobbies?

Golf. You'd be surprised how many courses are very close to campgrounds. Not too compact, but I always have room for two bags in the tow vehicle. While travelling, you get to try different courses for variety.

Re: Hobbies?

On FiberglassRV there's a big forum dedicated to Hobbies and Crafts. Many of which are done while camping. Viewing the topics may give you some ideas: http://www.fiberglassrv.com/forums/f83/

Re: Hobbies?

One thing that you can do at campsites that you can't in cities or suburbs is astronomy. I have a 3.5" Newtonian which fits nicely into a small suitcase. One can use a camera tripod or the small tripod that came with the telescope.

The reason you need a remote area to view is light pollution near cities is terrible. When was the last time you saw the Milky Way? If you are young, you probably never saw it.

Even a good pair of binoculars will allow some fun observations, but you need a steady hand.

Re: Hobbies?

Of course, the main driver behind getting our trailer is sheep herding. Radar and I have earned the first level of herding title from the Canadian Kennel Club, and I hope to do much better in 2011. That means weekends of training in Laidlaw and Cobble Hill, BC, and weekends of trials there and other places. Most of the farms where we do this set aside a field for participants to camp.

This is the level we are at:



Not bad for a city dog with one year training about once a week. Not great, either.
