Alright lads,

I'd been reading the website on and off for a couple months and thought I'd sign up after reading the 45 Hobbies blog. I myself have a few hobbies listed on there including fly fishing and playing the acoustic guitar. My goals for the new year are to take up some more outdoor pursuits (camping, hiking etc..), strength training and maybe even a bit of woodworking. Hopefully some of your manliness will rub off on me (excuse the inuendo...)

A little background on myself: I'm 25, a recent graduate and I currently work in an Ale and Whisky pub. My mother's Irish, my father's a yank and by some unfortunate twist of fate I've ended up British. One of my favourite books is the Old Man and the Sea but the best read of last year had to be Dick Proenekke's Alone in the Wilderness (the edited diaries of an American who built a log cabin from scratch near Anchorage in Alaska and lived off the land there for 30 years).

Anyway, pleasure to meet you all I'm sure. Any questions, just shoot.

"Well, showers are pretty much a requirement for people new to it, usually. Which is kind of a tall order and you'll most likely end up at one with RVs for miles. And those tiny cabin shack things.  "

How Can I Entice a Reluctant Camper?

I have a problem to ask advice about. I LOVE Camping, but my fiance does not. His idea of roughing it is to stay in a 3 star hotel instead of a 5 star. I would like him to go camping with me eventually, but he of course is not fond of that idea at all. Mind you, my whole world will not be in ruin if he never tries it, since I have a large group of friends who I can go camping with several times a year. I would just normally take my adult daughter, but she recently moved to Arizona to work and…See More

"In my own experience with making jams, I have rarely found it necessary to puree the fruit. If you cook it long enough to properly congeal it into jam, the fruit breaks down on it's own. "
