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


Mainly lithium. It also had some beryllium and tantalum. It was the Harding Mine.

It closed in 1958, but we got access as Geologist students. It was really pretty.
They crystals to the left are what we were mainly looking at.

Edit: Are you German? Your name means make good, which I am sure you know! I lived there for a few years. Europe has some of my favorite geological features!

outdoors? whats that....never heard of it.......


It is a big place outside of your front door with lots of people, animals, plants, buildings, and various hills. But that is not important, what is important is getting you to watch your anime out in it in hopes that you will stop watching anime to enjoy it.


Yes, I like to hike and camp as long as I have citronella soap and deet.

No, I am not German although I feel that I am. My Father served in the military and I lived for a total of 12 years when I was young, two tours, in Germany. I loved the salt mines. They were always interesting.

I had the opportunity to visit the Harding Mine. An associate of mine was going to conduct a private tour but the group I was with decided to go elsewhere. What are you planning to do once you graduate? Going to work for the Mining or Petroleum industry?

Ah, I only lived 2 years in Germany. My dad was in the military too. Army to be precise... even more so a Tread-head! I was the black sheep who didn't go to West Point. My Grandfather was very disappointed! Even though I only spent a little time in Germany, I feel more German as well. I had so much fun there I can't put it into words! Also, which salt mines did you visit? I visited some near Wiesbaden and Vilseck. I forget the exact name, but they were absolutely fun!

As for what I want to do when I graduate, I am not 100% sure though. I have only a year to figure that out as well *shivers*. I am thinking of working with someone like NOAA or NASA. I have always had a love for the ocean and space. I was a Petroleum Engineer when I decided I didn't like Petroleum. I learned some stuff that didn't sit too well in my courses. That is one reason I really like Germany. They have "Die Grüne" or the Green Party. The first in the world and all for environmental protection. I am such a left wing nut =p The mining isn't as bad, though the acid rain and acid buildup that comes from a lot of mining is a bit of an issue for the wildlife around it! My teacher took us to an old mine in which all the wildlife for miles was just red and dead.

If you don't mind my asking, you seem like a Geologist. What did you do with your major/what do you want to do with your major?

Give me a gun, wide open spaces, beer, good food, comrades and a fire. Nothing purifies like the wilderness. Towering mountains commanding everything around them. Tall trees and shimmering lakes. The aromas of scout dinners cooking. Let the booze flow freely. There is nothing like the great outdoors.

Definitely an outdoors kind of person. Favorite hobbies were hiking, backpacking, kayaking, snowshoeing, camping, archery, hunting, etc. Most of all though, I am a dog musher to my core.

Since I relocated to a tropical island for a couple of years, I've picked up snorkeling and beach combing as alternatives. I keep up with hiking, though this island is small and I think I might run out of good places to go...

I really loved spending hours and hours by myself in the woods. I had a little patch I used to stalk around in, squirrel hunting with my bow. Sometimes I'd take my older dog with me and we'd just wander, climb a tree here and there, sit and listen/watch (both for small game dinner and other things like coyotes, cougars, etc), go shed hunting, stump shoot, and so on.

In the winter, I could spend all day out in the snow, driving a team of 8-10 dogs. I sorely miss my northern-ish woods (as opposed to my current jungle situation).

I was excited for this hunting season, since it was going to be my first real deer season, but alas, I moved away too soon.

I like the outdoors. I grew up camping, virtually all our vacations were outdoors.

Now I spend months at a time camping and traveling with only brief stays in motels. I'm on a bicycle tour right now and checked into a motel for a week to recharge and do some repairs. Only on day two and I already can't wait to get out again. Doesn't help that I'm in the middle of nowhere Kentucky with nothing around but a gas station and this motel.

I'm partially an outdoorsy person. I go outside to walk my dog almost everyday, once or twice a day. And I also go outside and help my grandfather out with lifting and stacking up pieces of firewood.

I enjoy hiking and watching nature. I've visited a number of our national parks like Yosemite and Yellowstone as well as Australia (been there twice) and the rainforests of Central and South America (Mexico, Belize and Peru on my travels). I happen to be a wildlife buff, seen bears, moose, bison, monkeys, kangaroos, koalas, and who knows how many different types of birds.

I enjoy being outdoors. There was a time when I worked outdoors too even on a snowy day. I like taking long walks and the odd hike. I also enjoyed camping when I got to sleep in a tent. I'm not extreme though. No rock climbing and even if I like a night in tent or cooking outdoors, I want facilities to have a hot shower and toilets somewhere around. I also don't know how to hunt or fish. I get to spend part of my workday outdoors now. My brother once asked why I didn't go for a desk job. I didn't reply to that. I'd find it hard to sit in one place every day all week. Right now I'll have desk moments but I'm on the go.
