Well I basically camp two ways.

When i travel I use this. Its nice because it has everything, sleeps 4 (although we never did) and is small to fit in any campground or event I do(stagehand work).






This is my home camp at a marina. I pretty much live here for most of Spring to Fall. Friends and family enjoy it. It can easily be trailer-ed but there's no need.



And I have several tents and stuff we use when we get into it.

learning that road biking is still great in the winter so long as the roads are clear!

Hoping to get back out on the bike soon so I can stop riding entirely on the trainer, but it's predominantly been indoor biking for me, running, snowshoe running, and snowboarding. Also looking forward to getting back out on nordic skis this winter for the first time in years.

I also recently took up the challenge of learning to surf, and I enjoy low key mtn biking a bit.

Keep meaning to get my bike out more in the winter now that I have adequate gear, but I always find myself strapping on some running shoes instead.

I like to run while fishing and shooting birds. I sort of consider it the new triathlon, cause lord knows I'm not ready for the old shit. Yet.

At the same time? Sounds impressive. I'm getting mentally ready to try winter hiking by running around in circles at unsafe speeds in hostile weather. Builds character.

Life does'nt leave me as much time as it used to for my hobbies but I like to Ski And Soar ( fly Gliders )
I have around 800hrs , had many cool experiences and a few scares . The sky is like a giant lava lite landscape, air movement can lift a Sailplane over 1000'ft pre minute up in rising air currents , also air flow over mountain ranges can set up a standing wave that can be "surfed " tens of thousands of feet upward.When you see a lenticular cloud ,like the one over Wildcat on Saturday.
That indicates the presence of a Wave.
Spring is best for my highest altitudes over the years , cool air warn sunshine .Fall when Hawks migrate is cool , as your circling in a thermal they spot you and fly over and join in , sometimes you may see dozens all around.We have a Bald Eagle living not too far from the airport ,Flew in a thermal 30' away and gained 3000'ft with him.

Not my vid but this is what Wildcat looks like from above riding Wave

Winter it is Skiing and that's it (well a little gym work)! Summer I have ADHD - we golf, attempt surfing and boggie/half boarding, are getting into kayaking, do some mountain/road biking and we get in the occasional hike. This summer we are considering a rock climb in Franconia Notch with my brother-in-law who guides. Tennis is a sport I really enjoy but since my ACL tear not so much - going to try with my brace.

I have been known to occupy a beach chair from time to time between walking the beach, surfing and other types of boarding!

Then there is the dreaded yard work!

Our non skiing priorities have changed since we moved to Colorado. We have gotten into hiking/trail running a lot more since it is more comfortable here no bugs or humidity. BTW it has helped us with skiing, the first time out this weekend our legs felt great - first time since we generally have tired legs after the first day. We have done some MTB and even tried our hand at dirt biking - will do that more next summer. We have also done several trips of white water rafting which has been awesome fun. We took lessons for fly fishing and plan to gear up for that next summer as well. We have done some SUP and will do more. Lastly, we still golf - hackers but do it anyway.

Evenings we have gone with our son to play soccer, lacrosse, basketball and tennis. I did buy a long board which my son uses most but I am working at it - figured it would help with balance.
