Ok guys, what is your favorite outdoor activity? For me I would say backpacking. I love getting to camp in places that you have to work to get to. How about you???

I have a friend that has horses, and I've gone riding a few times with her 12 year old daughter. But I've been riding horses since I was about 10, in all sorts of ways - english riding, jumping classes, volunteer work with the Wyoming forest service, rounding up cattle, horse breaking & training, and just pleasure.

But there is one thing I like even better than horse back riding. That's scuba diving! I haven't done that since I was about 18 or 19 though. But I had enough training that if I took 2 more classes, I could have qualified as a scuba trainer. (Not trying to brag, just a talkin'.)

Of course I like to fish, hunt and ride the snowmobile but best of all I like to take the camera out and take pictures of all the great cool odd things that the great spirit has placed on earth for those with their eyes open to see.
The digital now makes that even better because the film cost isn't so much a factor on how many pictures you take and many times it doesn't turn out right you can see it and take it again.

Skiing.   I use to do this a lot and then i had kids and was absent from the slopes for 11 years.  I just went last weekend and it was so good to be back on the slopes.  It is amazing to be on the top of a mountain and you are going down the hill on two little boards.

For me it would have to be -- beekeeping. I can't understand why it isn't even on your list.

We work in the garden, field and greenhouses, which beats working in the confines of the office (which I do too much of).  But I also like to lay in the hammock, picnic, sit around a fire and chat with friends, mess with the hives, or just walk through the grass and weeds.  And at night, I like pulling out the telescope and sightseeing through the universe.  That's a BIG outdoors!  The cold, still nights of winter are best for that.

Love to camp and canoe. Sometimes both at the same time. Also enjoy hiking ,some of the shooting sports,and of course cutting and using firewood.

Most of the above, but you left out one of the most important - Gardening!  That's what I'd rather be doing anytime.

i love riding my horse, but i love camping with my horse most of all. 
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Can't remember the list cause I'm making a post, this is what I like to do.  It all pertains to warm weather, so snowmobiles and cold stuff are out:
Gardening
Beekeeping, really keen on bee watching
Picnicing
Backpacking (if it is not too far)
Short vacations in our 5th wheel
Canoeing
Biking
Biking on motorcycles
Laying on hammock under shade reading my grandchildren stories
Drinking beer (or wine, or iced tea) around my pool, under the shade of the beech tree
Harvesting vegetables for processing
Videotaping
Camera shots
Listening to the sounds of nature
Identifying birds and insects
Going out for dinner, eating outside in restaurant patios in the summer
Vacuuming my house

That about sums it up.  Best of the great day.  Cindi

I voted "Other".  My favorite outdoor activities are Summer Bluegrass Festivals and Gold Prospecting in the Cascade mountain range.
