Brian,

Besides geocaching, I really enjoy camping, fishing, and traveling. I really enjoy seeing new places, fishing small lakes that are no-wake lakes, and spending nights under the stars. Doing all three at the same time is a bonus!

This could be a very long list.
Acting, puppeteering, camping, hunting, fishing, role-playing games, board games, card games, hiking, reading, canoeing, paintballing...Suffice to say, I enjoy things that waste time or don't waste time...as long as I'm doing something.

Woodworking, Have built some furniture in the past. Though it was caching related, the tables held pathtags under the glass top.

Most of our other hobbies are linked to caching: Traveling, camping, hiking and biking.

My current hobby outside of Geocaching has been Scrapbooking. I also enjoy camping, canoeing, small boat sailing, campfire cooking, counted cross stitching, quilling and reading.

That is a excellent question! A hobby of mine connected with geocaching would have to be camping. We are planning to camp on our honeymoon this summer in Madeline Island! Outside of geocaching I really enjoy cooking and trying new things in the kitchen; recipes, tools, etc. And as of lately I've taken an interest in woodworking.

Before geocaching discovering, I've liked to spend my time being active and if possible doing that outside. I've always liked playing sports whether basketball, soccer, Ultimate or anything else that involved being on a team, running around and having fun.

Since late Spring, Iíve taken up running again and have competed in a few area 5K (3.1 mile) races with some friends. When it warms up again, Iím considering training for a Half marathon.

For the previous 10 yrs my main hobby had been working with my churchís youth group as a volunteer leader. With them we went on several short-time mission trips and always seemed to take every Sunday (at least) and a sizable chunk of my yearly vacation. What I got out of that was definitely more than I gave.

Oh boy, this could be a very long list. I tend to get involved with whatever my children are into, as well as some interests of my own. I help out quite a lot with my children's school, supervising recess, correcting papers, giving spelling tests, putting up bulletin boards, etc. I also help out with various church activities like teaching Sunday School and directing the kid's choir. Not sure if those are exactly hobbies but they do take up a fair amount of time and I do enjoy them.

I love being outdoors hiking, biking, canoing, flying kites and model rockets with the kids, swimming, snowshoeing, and just being outside. I also enjoy being crafty; sewing, quilting, woodburning, woodworking, making jewelry, scrapbooking, etc. I just made a whole bunch of homemade swag that I plan in putting in caches. I volunteer with various 4H activities within our club and I'm the club's Cloverbud leader where I work with the kids grades K-3. Our family plays Euro-strategy board games, most people have never heard of them. This is how we came up with our team name Cachers of Catan. My husband is as obsessed with board games as I am with geocaching so we both try and support each other in our mutual hobbies.
