Do you get outside?

Postby pitw » Mon Jul 27, 2015

Just wondering from some of the stuff I've read just how much outside time most on this site get.

I don't work for a living come winter but I get 8+ then too. I can not justify being inside when what I love is on the other side of the wall.

Hard for me to say as my activities are not so regular. I was at the Boy Scout meeting tonight and realized I did not do a summer camp this year for the first time in 10 years or so; kinda sad; smiling at all the boys I had taken to camp over the years (some since first year Tiger Cub now reaching Eagle). Talked to other leaders about riding horses next summer so we shall see. I am not sure which option to pick.

Of course, it all depends on how one defines "outside."

I would define outside as not being inside a building.

Does looking out the basement window count?

With just the ones that have voted I'm starting to understand something.

Can I count the time I spent inside a bar this weekend, but all of the windows and doors were open?

I suppose it would count. It would make a neat poll to see how much time the average stacker spends in a pub. :thumbup:

At work all I get is the usual break times and those are not necessarily outside.

At play, I will spend all day outside if it's the weekend and there is a body of water I can get at or a BBQ going on, but after work I don't get outside as much unless I'm firing up the grill or having a drink on the deck.

Pushing 110 heat index here today and I hate hot weather. It's easy to put on gloves and coats in the winter but even running around naked outside, it's still HOT! :shock:

I spent several hours at the son's house Saturday putting an AC and shelves up in his tool shed. AC worked like a charm, lowing the temp from 120 to perhaps 95.

Oddly back in the day there was more rain, less asphalt/concrete, houses were built different to capture cool air, etc. Quite tolerable ago. Even now out in rural parts with a shade tree and water, not too bad but you are not doing much midday and later until evening. I suspect this is the origin of the siesta tradition--work early and late but lay up in the afternoon.

Thank you for that. :thumbup: While in Australia working[on a farm] back in '75 it was hot and they did that too. I went up to Queensland for a short holiday and a lot of the rural houses were built on stilts. Being 18 and even stupider than today, I stopped at one place to ask if they had floods often. :oops: Good people live there as they fed me after :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: until they :sick: .

I work in the construction/commercial roofing business, so all my work time is outside. With the 110+ heat index, I'm trying to find which bad life choices ended me up here :cry: Weekends I'm on the beach or in the Gulf of Mexico pulling fish from their homes. :thumbup: Pretty much most of my time is outside.

sounds to me like you got the best of all worlds. If I met you I wouldn't think you are ill do to being pale. I can't imagine living in a controlled environment as I'd never know the good days from the bad.
