    You know........if you own your own gear, it's a home gym. I am sore as could be right now. Spending 2 days carrying 70 pounds of tanks up and down hills, carrying gear bags up and down, etc, etc. My back and legs are really letting me know exactly what I did. But it's the "good" kinda hurt.

    Heh. It sounds like when I used to work for the moving company back when I was in undergrad. You really got into shape there. I wasn't always physically moving stuff, but even packing is a physical activity. You're moving quickly, lifting things, bending over, shlupping 50# bundles of paper, bundles of boxes, stacking boxes, etc. etc.

    Truth be told, I miss working for the moving company. Libraries can be conductive to exercise too, if you're walking around a lot helping patrons, carrying materials, etc., but not quite the same.

    Primarily climbing, both indoors and out -- usually 3 days/nights a week. I do a little road biking during the year, and short hikes with friends in the area.

    My vacations used to be entirely climbing related, for the past 3 years, I've been alternating diving and climbing. Not sure what the trend will be in the future.

    I figured alot of the sports and activities mentioned would tend to swing towards the "exterme side"
    Myself in the winter all I have time to do is ski, but I did snowboard for couple of days last season.
    Inn the summer Scuba, obviously, alot of water sports, Waterski, tubing, and kneeboarding, and just spending time at the beach. A couple of years ago I got involved with competitive sailing, first I crewed on a larger boat, but have graduated to my own boat and now split time between sailing a Laser 2 and a Hobie 16 that I just started with really this year.
    When I don't feel like getting my feet wet I either get out on the mtn bike, golf, go climbing, or camping. Needless to say weekends and leisure time is pretty booked up.

    Does chasing your 5 yeard old son count? Other than that I have my own boxing bag in the shed, I need to work with it more than I have the last month. So thats my goal to get back out there and take a swing at.
