So since I talk about it so much, you’re probably wondering in fact what my favorite kind of outdoor activities are. I do love the outdoors, and it’s hard to specify only a few things, but I will list out here what I’ve currently been occupying my time with.
Hunting. I’ve been hunting for over 20 years, and I’ll never get tired of it. There’s just something about being outside, on the hunt, looking to kill your next meal, out with a couple of buddies, and a couple of guns. Doesn’t get any better than that.
Fishing. On the other end of the spectrum we have fishing, which when you think about it really is the same goal is hunting, but in just a much more peaceful manner. Being out on the boat all afternoon, with the sun beating down on you, catching some rays with some friends, and popping a couple of cold ones — I mean, how awesome does that sound?
Camping. This is a great family activity, in my opinion. Every kid loves spending time outdoors, playing all kinds of games, toasting marshmallows, sleeping in tents, going to be late, eating dinner over an open fire, telling scary stories, and watching the stars above — kids live for that kind of stuff. So for me this is not only personally a very satisfying hobby, but it’s one of the best ways to bond with my children.
Boating. This one is a bit white-collar for my tastes, but I have to admit — lately I have become quite intrigued by boating out on the open seas. And I’m not talking about sitting in a fishing boat; I mean in a real, big ass boat. I don’t own one myself, but one of my friends does, and he invites us on it from time to time. Talk about relaxing; he serves up a nice lunch, with a couple of cocktails, and you get to lay out on the boat and catch a nice tan.
