Going for a jog or working on something in my garage and enjoying the breeze.

I have horses and I ride and compete with them so I spend quite a bit of time outside. The place we moved to in January has a huge garden that is a bit unkempt too, so I will be spending quite a bit of time getting that back together and improving the place for the horses.

Between work and horses I don't have loads of time but I still watch lots of anime and play the occasional video game

I enjoy hiking, going for a jog around the area, and visiting parks! That's all outdoorsy stuff

When I was younger I used to hunt with my dad, but since I went off to college I just didn't have the time to do it anymore.

I live in Pennsylvania, so lots of rivers and hiking trails, if your friends with anybody who lives around here, you will be going on hikes quite regularly. So I would say I'm kinda outdoorsy.

I like the outdoors, I cycle to work and often cycle through the forest after work for an hour or two or at weekends during the day, at least at weekends you have the time to stop for lunch...or at a pub anyway. Though now it is getting dark earlier a group around here starts the dark evening rides with are brilliant fun. I always get out during the day if it is nice, visit National Trust places (Old manor houses, castles, cathedrals, coastlines etc...) to satisfy my interest in history and get the imagination going. Or if I am not feeling particularly energetic I'll drive somewhere and go for a wander.

As long as I have the day off and it is nice weather I'll be out and about. There was a report I read today that said walks along the coastline make you sleep better and feel better about your life, so getting outside must be good for you.

I used to be an avid outdoorsman before I became allergic to sunlight.

I went camping several times a year and usually stayed out for at least a few days at a time. 3-7 days, usually. I was also into martial arts and spent many hours a week training. I'd go to my friend's house since he had a great backyard at the time with tons of space. We'd spar and practice breaking bricks and do bone conditioning and practice our archery.

There's a big park near my house and I used to practically live there. I hiked for 8 hours to another city and back.

I walked an hour to school and an hour back every day for 6 years. I also walked for most of college. I enjoyed swimming and basketball and tennis.

Wish I was still fit. Now I'm easily tired and I dislike sweating. I still like fishing, although I'm restricted to fishing at night.

Outside > Inside!

I love camping and hiking especially, but even just taking a nice relaxing walk through the woods or sitting down and reading somewhere in nature is not only a beautiful way to spend your time but has been scientifically proven to be extremely healthy for you. Especially if you like going barefoot!

Yeah. On a bad day, I will break out in hives that may take days to go away after just 15 minutes of unprotected exposure. I'm always buying and applying sunscreen now, even if I'm indoors. I get these flat, raised, pale patches on my skin sometimes as well.

When I first realized I might be reacting to sunlight, I did some experiments on myself to see how long I can be exposed before getting a reaction. It seems to vary from time to time and was more severe when I first noticed I had it.

Holy shit, that's awful
Very sorry to hear about that; I've read a few stories about the condition, but have never actually seen or known anyone with it

At least I have cooler nicknames now. Creature of the Night, Vampire, Prince of Darkness, etc. It's pretty hilarious. My friends will sometimes help me find shade and put on sunscreen and stuff, which is sweet. They plan my events for dusk and evening.

It's actually not all that bad once you get used to it. It's a mild annoyance, like a scraped knee. I like to avoid it, but I can just deal with it if I have to. I have to take vitamin D to make up for my lack of exposure but that's the only big change. Oh, and I carry a parasol at times.


I don't know what causes it and had my doctor run a few blood tests. He can't figure it out, either. It's more common for women to have this condition and it is sometimes inherited, but I am not a woman and nobody in my family has it. I hear that it is also mistaken for sun sensitivity which can result when someone doesn't have sun exposure for a long time and then is exposed. But, obviously, I was exposed to the sun every other day so it's not likely that it is heightened sensitivity resulting from lack of exposure.

I am a geologist major, so I spend weeks to a month out in the field at a time! There is nothing like camping out in a tent over spring break... looking at rocks and drinking water with iodine tablets in it! Mmm!

I have some nice pictures on my account if you want to see them. Just some of the prettier ones. I have like 300... but most are rocks. They are also big so I cant seem to upload them here...


Went to your site. What type of mine is the photo you took? http://www.crunchyroll.com/showphoto?id=4311675453#s=3
