How Sportsmobilers spend their time

Two pie charts tell the tale, tho they need to be modified for our world





I particularly like reading & deleting listserve emails and doing normal people things while wishing you were SMB-ing.

How about categories and percentages? Here are a few:

Airing down/up (for the hard core crowd)
Reading craigslist links
fantasy shopping for the next thing you absolutely have to have (a nod to "that's it; I'm done buying things . . .")
uploading photos
looking at other trip photos

???

Re: How Sportsmobilers spend their time

That chart is way one sided what about the rest of us?

On the road I spend as much time exploring off road with the van as I can. Love taking picture of my travels even if they're not good images. Sure kicking back in camp is nice from time to time but I also love to shoot or fish. Sorry I'm not a big mountain biker any more like most and well bird watching is a special hobby. I'll bet biking is the #1 recreation most do when they can but could be wrong.

Nope, it's 6.0 diesel maintenance.

Re: How Sportsmobilers spend their time

Where's the big piece of the pie devoted to time spent on this forum?
