Winter:
Skiing (Lift served and some "skin/hike to")
Hockey
Indoor Volleyball
Snowshoeing around the house

Fall:
Hunting (lots of walking in the woods)

Spring/Summer/Fall:
Some hiking but I don't get out as much as I used to.
MTB


Kayaking (Some fast water some flat)


"Beach" Volleyball


Helping my dad hay (throwing around 35-70 lbs haybales) is incredibly good exercise.

Soon to be year-round:
Chasing my daughter :p

Winter: Skiing, Volleyball (indoor)

Rest of year: Volleyball (in and outdoor), Fishing (mostly trying to figure out flycasting), occasional trail run, rarer and rarer kayaking... Maybe get back into tennis a little.

Do you ever play in Volleyball tournaments? Our Association typically hosts a 4x4 co-ed beach tournament around the 4th of July in East Burke. Let me know if you are interested and I'll get you some more info.

I love to Snowboard Winters and then the rest of the year I Longboard (skate not surf), Play Disc Golf, Tube, Hike, and Golf sometimes, I really want to get back into MTN Biking but just cant get the money together for a decent bike that I wont trash (this kids rough on equipment) since I had to leave my nice bike @ home with the parents as it would not fit in th U-haul and decisions had to be made. Home is MI too so its not getting shipped to CT anytime soon. :)

Outdoor quiet sports: Skiing, Hiking, Sailing, Off-trail (but not MTN) biking. Canoeing, Sleeping in the hammock.

Prefer the mountains to the beach.
Prefer it cooler than hot. I can deal with minus ten. I cannot deal with ninety.

Skiing in the winter

MTB when not skiing (and it's not too muddy)

I would like to get a road bike too (especially for when it's muddy in the woods). I've done a bit of hiking, but not much recently.

You think a road bike will be better in the mud?

Winter: skiing
Summer: swimming (3-6 miles a week), some mountain biking but I don't crave it like skiing, did some short hikes after work last summer which was nice. I'd really like to find a scenic lake where I can rent a kayak to try that. Beer drinking and safety meetings before hitting the waterslide at the local pool. Landscaping.

Kayaking is something I'd like to add to the list. FIL has kayaks available to us, we just don't seem to use them very often. Went once last year with the kids and it was great. :D
