Which of these do you do?

Wifey B: Just curious to know how many here do any of the listing things when cruising or when just living on their boat.

You can choose as many as you want. List it even if it's something you only do occasionally. If you do it once every 6 months, list it.

What made me think of it was we're going to play tennis tonight and golf tomorrow morning, which we totally suck at golf.

Not much of a choice

So that wasn't implied under "all balls"?

Limited choices really. Didn't see jumping to conclusions, flying off the handle, going off on tangents. But seriously, considering the forum, no rowing?

Wifey B: Oversight. Put it in other sports, please. Even though it doesn't use balls. I'm sure I've missed other things too.

Wifey B: Walking is what we do best and most regularly. We walk miles just exploring where we've landed. We're not the type to just go walking or jogging (yes I left that one off too...guess it goes on treadmill). But when you're walking to get somewhere or see something it's fun.

We don't have bicycles. Bet we'd be hilarious trying to ride them since we haven't since we were kids.

Treadmill is only when haven't been able to do other stuff. Like 3 days on the boat without being off kind of thing. Rare. We did in NC in the cold of winter. Well, as cold as it got there. Not really cold cold.

Glad to see we're not the only ones who don't touch any other gym stuff.

Love to swim.

We fish occasionally. Not so sure how much exercise it is unless you catch a lot.

Golf. We have a friend now who is golf crazy and we let her corrupt us and talk us into it sometimes.

Tennis and basketball. Yes Yes Yes. Love them both.

Other...Well, beach or water volleyball occasionally I guess. No rowing. Maybe we need a kayak.

Need kayaks and bicycles.

Yes, get a kayak! Will take you, or you will take it places you dingy (speed toy) can't.

Greetings,
Wifey B. You left out maintenance. Depending on the task, it's as much of a workout as I care to expend energy on.

Wifey B: You're sooooooooooo right. Washing a boat down, waxing if you do that. Carrying batteries. Wow.

Other than lots of walking & fishing, we recently picked up a couple inflatable stand up paddleboards. They are great for exploring shallow calm water. (still working at getting the dog trained to stay still on board)


We also have surfboards that we sometimes bring along depending on where we are going. (My wife recently learned to surf at the age of 50)

Wifey B: Great. Surfing not for me. You can end up upside down and under water and splashing around and I don't think so.

You guys definitely giving me some toy ideas with paddleboards and kayaks too.

We walk because we have no other transportation to grocery stores, etc. No exercise equipment on board.

Our only other real option on the list is swimming but only if anchored and only if we are not in alligator territory.

Strangely though, our doctor has noticed that when we come back from an extended boat cruise we are in better shape than if we stayed home.

I think, on the whole, as a group, we're more active than most people. The walking is certainly a great part of it. In most places there is other transportation available one way or the other, but most of us still just choose to walk where it's possible.

I noticed something years ago in business in my travels and time spent in NYC. People were in better shape than in other places. Why? Because they walked. Most do not have cars in the city and while buses and trains are readily available, they walk to and from them and often they just walk the entire way.

My wife does em all, no sissies allowed in this arena. And she is from the back woods of Kentucky and can shoot too. Right now she is at Parris Is watching family marines do their thing. Golf and tennis you say -- too mundane for that gal.
