Mostly everything I do is seen as a weird or special by other.I like medieval fencing , archery and I recently find a course I really want to take.You learn how to take care of birds like falcon and train it for the hunt.If you take the course with success , they give a certificate and after it seem you can have this kind of bird , it is not illegal.Well I'm not planning to have a falcon at home but it's so interesting .I will do my first step in camping this summer.I lke walking and I will take horseriding course.I want to know how you take care of this extraordinary animal not only being sit on it.And what people around the world do?

Greetings Nancy smile.gif

The same could be said about me.

I, too, am interested in archery and falconry. I will be taking classes starting this fall. I also am into dance, all sorts of dancing. I enjoy singing and art. I hope to take some classes on both subjects in the future. A good friend and I make costumes for fun every year. Um... that's pretty much it.

Everyone needs hobbies, I just like to have a wide range of them wink.gif

Hi you two,

Have you seen the thread on Falconry in the Animal Talk Forum? It's in Special Interests, and was started by Kamchak (sp?). I think you'd both really enjoy it! It's always fascinated me too, and I make a point of seeing the Falconer when we go to King Richard's Faire (Renfaire) every year.

Anyway, just wanted to let you know it was there.
Take care!

I also have a wide range of hobbies and interests though anything that gets me outside is at the top of my list. I am a camper, canoer, kayaker with wilderness camping being my favorite. In August I will be joining a small group and we are flying by float plane to the west end of Isle Royale for a week of backpacking. The plane drops us off by Windigo and we will loop around the western part of the island and return to be picked.

In September I will join my brothers For a week of wilderness canoe/camping in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area.

Right now I am the Secretary of the Michigan Geocaching Organization (MiGO). We are part of an international high-tec hide and seek game called Geocaching and it is played using a computer and a GPSr. The local newspaper is doing a full page story on Geocaching and I have been working with the outdoor reporter on this. We are setting up a series of Geocaches to highlight the attractions in our community.

I am also an avid Bird Watcher and a budding nature photographer. And in my spare time I have a day job.

I sail, almost always solo, among the small keys of St Joseph's Sound and the Gulf of Mexico on the western coast of Florida. I think of it as hydrotherapy.

I play bagpipes and smallpipes, perhaps not that beyond the norm on this forum, but sufficiently odd to raise the eyebrows of strangers in this area, particularly when kilted.

On occasion, I brew my own beer and mead, both of which are highly regarded by my friends.

Once upon a time I served on gun crews with an original bronze 1864 Ames Napoleon 12 lb. cannon, a brass 1841 pattern 12 lb. howitzer of unknown provenance (no marks on the muzzle face or cascabels, but obviously quite old. It rang like a bell when fired), and two reproduction 3" ordinance rifles, for the National Park Service and the Atlanta Historical Society among others.

Once upon a time I spent several years as a foretopman on a square topsail schooner sailing up and down the coast of California and out to Hawaii. Still dearly love rakish schooners like the California and Pride of Baltimore.

I would like to try my hand at an English longbow someday.

"I see that you are from Clearwater...I love it so much down there I am thinking about moving to that area in a few years, if all goes well."

It's a mixed bag. No snow, and the most days of sunshine (average-361), cooler than inland areas due to the moderating effect of the sea breeze (warmer in winter, too). Nations's best beach several years running (Fort DeSoto Park), Pagan friendly.
The most densely populated county in Florida. The most mobile homes of any county in the nation. Virtually nonexistant public transportation. "Right-to-Work State" (labor unions are essentially outlawed), abysmally low wages, draconian Worker's Compensation laws (do NOT get hurt on the job in Florida!), grossly inadequate schools, a single-party state, with Republicans controlling everything from the county commission to the governor's office. And in today's St. Pete Times, the Tampa Bay is ranked as the least affordable urban area to live in.

I was just reading an article on geochaching sounds like it might be fun does it take a special gps?I just started getting into orienteering, I was in the infantry and always liked land nav.My biggest hobby is submission wrestling, I love to fight (only on a mat or ring with some who is willing and able) its fun at 41 years old to be able to roll with the young dogs and hold my own but i've got to say it takes a little longer to recover these days.

Nope no special GPS unit needed. I started out with the basic Garmin unit I used for hiking and canoeing. I have since upgraded to a full mapping Garmin, basically anything that you can input a waypoint will work. We see everything being used. A lot of great people from all walks of life are enjoying Geocaching. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help you get started.
