With winter here in Michigan I wondered if many Bitog members enjoyed winter activities like: ice fishing, skiing, snow shoeing, snowmobiling etc..

I don't. I like staying warm in the house!

Sure do! Snowboard all the way and recently I found the fun that a Fatbike can be! Last night I spent waaaay to long pushing carbide/AL studs into my fatbike tires. Man my hand is sore. Going to test em out later today when the sun is shining and the temps reach 2 digits grin

Sleeping in with the covers around my ears on a cold morning. At 70, that is a great thing to do!

When I was younger I'd be outside all day sledding, and in my teens I rode ATVs in the snow with friends for hours. Now I enjoy snowblowing driveways in my neighborhood but that is about all the winter I can take.

I enjoy stepping out onto the deck and retrieving a few pieces of split oak firewood and placing them into the wood burning stove while a commercial is playing during the bowl game I happen to be watching. wink

I love snow wheeling with the Jeep!

Never got into skiing, hiking, snowmobiling or ATVing in the snow.

I enjoy splitting firewood with my homemade 10lb maul and taking a nice mile or so walk smile

I like to roll up my shirtsleaves and then walk into my classroom full of shivering Taiwanese students (in parka's, with the fur lined hoods up) and fling the windows wide open.

Ice hockey! Probably the only thing...with a fire going nearby. Lately though, I just think about moving somewhere warmer.

Photography, snowplowing, and running a wood stove. approved

I also perversely enjoy fixing stuff "under the gun" of bad weather. It's not that I wait or am lazy but I get surprised just the same. Just mended the phone line coming into my house at -10'F. The insulation on the old junky wire was flaking off in crusty chunks!

When I was younger and poorer I was given a free snowblower and I was fixing that stupid thing in a snowbank, dropping bolts into the snow, etc and thawing them in my pockets.

Golf if it's over 45 degrees. Otherwise it's inside.
