    Outdoors!!

    Outdoors is great. Why is was only this weekend that I scaled 7 mountains in North Wales over 4 days (bank holiday weekend). Being up a mountain battling against the harsh elements you get to see nature at it's most creative and it's most powerful, it's awesome!! Even if like me you do suffer from a bit of vertigo and happened to be scared out of your mind in places.

    I mean, isnt the whole point of getting to the top of a mountain, after all that dangerous climbing and hiking, to get to the top and yell "Ive done it" or something like that? And then sit and enjoy it, and/or watch the sunset from up there?

    Oooohh, I love to hike!! It's times like this that I wish that my state didn't have an average elevation of 5 feet Damn! I'm such a great hiker, too. I never get tired and I love it.

    I am outside about 4 huors a day right now (golf practice or play every single day), so I'm developing a farmer's tan (that's attractive!). I would die if I was always outside, but I would die faster if I had to stay inside all the time. I'd imagine most people here don't like sports as much as I do, but I can't see how people can go a few days without going outside.

    It was my first time going up a mountain so for me it would have been fine to get to the top and feel an overwhelming sense of achievement just once. However the guys I was with were experienced hikers and climbers so for them the challenge was to do all the mountains in the area over one weekend and I just went along with them.

    I spend a lot of time outside, from walking my dogs, doing yardwork, camping, moutain biking, hiking, rafting, rock climbing. Sometimes it helps to go for a ride on your bike on a nice ruff trail to get the creative juices flowing.

    Come visit Seattle. It rains everyday and we boast the highest suicide rate in the country. I ask you, why would I ever want to go outside...here? Now when I go back to Florida to visit my family...that's another story

    The city is far more interesting, and there's a hell of a lot more to do to keep one's mind occupied. I mean, besides wrestling with code allday until a program pops out or surfing the web or go for walks there's not a hell of a lot to do here.
    Exactly my opinion.

    The city is far more interesting - because it's alive(!) as opposed to the dark, dead, evil forest where I live. I always get a special feeling by walking around in the city a friday evening, while looking at all those dudes wandering around. I just got home to my dark evil forest again, so now it's time to get depressed. I think I'll go for a long walk tonight.

    Stop the whining already! I, for one, will at least contribute to Sweden's suicide statistics.

    Oh, and anyway, to answer the question, I'm outside most of the day. I'd die cooped up on this computer for TOO long.

    >>I, for one, will at least contribute to Sweden's suicide statistics.

    Is there any way that I could help you in that worthwhile ambition?

    I love forests/woods... The city is cool too, but just too dark for me.

    Give me a week in the woods and i'll be happy for a month.
