Re: Hobbies?

If you are near a lake with a beach, I am thinking kites. You know, stunt kites and such. Most fun is flying those you built yourself! I should pick this hobby up again, did this all the time when back in Germany... :

Photography. It fits in to just about any activity you do.

Re: Hobbies?

I've been building super-detailed plastic models for years. Its easy to pack a model (easy there...we're talking about 1/35 scale plastic models here!), an exacto knife, and a tube or two of superglue and have something to whittle on during rainy days. Of course, the airbrushing and detail painting have to wait until I'm home.

I agree with Jim, photography is an ideal hobby for trailer camping. It is compact, environmentally friendly, fits together with other activities, helps you to see the beauty around you. Baglo claims this photo is not him, but I'm not so sure.

Re: Hobbies?

mushroom hunting and bird watching - both get you out and about, and both require little gear (a book each and a serious sense of adventure for one, plus an ability to follow taxonomy keys. Binoculars can be used for both). The former provides an opportunity to augment meals in a tasty fashion. The latter is just dang fun.

And, yes Jim, both can be combined with photography.

Re: Hobbies?

Yeah, but the photos won't be anywhere near as colourful as things are when you eat those mushrooms.

I like to do both too.
