I am going to steal Marks idea and make it a little wider for all to see and maybe someone will be doing something you are interested in.



Cheri and I have been in and out of pop-ups for about 18 yrs. I have tried different things to help relax when I am camping and not taking that nap in the mid day .. I have done some wood burning ( not good inside ) and the latest is to make hanging lamps for outside... Its a plastic flower pot of various sizes you drill out a pattern and place colored decoration type beads in the holes place a 25 W bulb in it and place it under your 5th wheel at the pin or hang it from your awning.

Cheri makes jewelry and gave out several at the 2003 rally to folks. She also reads romance novels and has several around the camper all the time.

Well that keeps us busy.what else do we have beside the camera folks?

We recently downsized after getting a couple of ATV's. These are a real hoot! It is unbelievable the places you can go and the ground that you can cover in a couple of hours! We are fortunate to be able to combine our camping with our new Lance and take the ATV's as well.
Other hobbies?
Hah! I am five short years from retirement and have more toys to play with than I can imagine.
R/C nitro boats
R/C sailboat
Competition pistols
Big bore and small bore

So many toys and so little time.
Fortunately I just got a new job! I am working as the Parts Manager for the local Polaris dealer. That will help with the winch and racks and gas cans and all the other stuff I want. Don't need it...just want it!

When my wife and I are out camping we LOVE to hit all of the garage sale in the area that we are staying . Its not that we need more stuff but one never knows when or were that next tresure or unbelevable bargan is going to be at. Then after a morning full of garage sales we settle under the awning with some cool adult beverages(beer) and watch the world go by.while playing Scrabble. It is ussually a very hummbling time for me but still lots of fun

Sadly, my hobby is not RV-friendly: making stuff with stained glass makes a rather lethal mess of glass shards, acid, and lead. I also like to work with tile - same mess.

Guess I'd better learn to crochet?!

I used to build model airplanes, still have a 36" electric tug and a 6' sailboat. Then I went to fishing, now if I could just hook up a remote reel to that tugboat...

Photography, shooting (muzzle loaders and modern), hunting. Wife works on the Family Tree (has about 80,000 names in her computer so far), and we both like to travel and camp in the boondocks

I enjoy woodcarving and reading also. My wife is intrested in quilting and machine embroidery. My carving stuff fits into three tool boxes and her serger sewing machine and embroidery machines don't take up too much space either. I figure as long as I can still get to the frige and bed I'm ok. tinker

Our hobby is RVING! But in addition George likes to play guitar which is lots of fun around the campfire. He also likes to nap. I like to read. I also like to sew but I haven't organized myself to bring my machine along. I was thinking of getting a small second machine to keep in the camper. Does anyone else do that?

Not including RVing or the kids 6 & 4 our hobbies are
Mine (my wife calls them "nerd hobbies")
Mineral Collecting and astronomy
This gives me a hobby for the daylight hours as well as night time when the kids are in bed.

My wife loves to go to yardsales as well as read just about anything.
