Wow highlander you have just given me my next hobby (Rock Climbing). That's it! Once I am tired of horse riding I am going to start Rock Climbing....Watch out I might be on the walls of some Scottish mountains ,
Try the cliffs as well. Or ice climbing, i've done other things in the past like parachuting, sky diving and learnt to fly(planes) with cadets.
But the love of my life is my horses so I do most of that around riley. Lol
Wow! I have done sky diving that was really fun until we moved to Gloucester. Yeah cliffs would be good too, I am searching for a rock climbing school here in Gloucester as we speak! So lets see what I find.
Fly Fishing and fly tying.. from the Catskills, Outer banks of N.C. To the Keys, Texas oyster beds, Arkansas tail waters.... and yes even the flat lands of Kansas. Trout to Stripped Bass..
Mike it is a small world. I learned to fly-fish near Platz, My Father-in-law lived in Grahamsville N.Y. Great country and better people.. I loved rural NY. I never made it into the big city. I fished Livingston Manor, the Beaverkill, the Neversink, Willowemac, Roundout, Fishes Edie, and parts of the Delaware.
If you don't fly-fish now you should take it up, because you are in dry fly paradise.
I learned how to spin yarn with a drop spindle and a wheel too. I've been crocheting for quite a few years...I raise angora bunnies too for, well, angora! I've also tried raising silk worms, silk is very ver shiny and soft, fun to work with. I like anything small and detailed...paper quilling, puzzles, models, gardening, and of course messing around with horses.
