Watercolor (painting). The "equipment" is small, fits in my backpack; very portable. I use small "blocks" of paper, 5"x7" or 8"x10".

I also always carry two hummingbird feeders in my Casita. They are very small and I don't put them out everywhere we stop. But, I always have them, in an old "mardi gras cup" by my galley sink.

And then, there's a little star-gazing how-to book that is always along for the ride...

Unhappy

biking, walking, birding, photographing, canoeing (if I can figure a way to get it with us, now that we have downsized) and painting (acrylics and oil pastels); and of course sightseeing and animal watching, too! The bikes will be on the back bumper of the trailer, hiking boots for the walking, a few bird books and binocluars, now using a digital, may have to go to an inflatable canoe, some paints, oil pastels and canvas panels, a wildflower and anmial book and some AAA tour books and maps all stowed in the trailer and pick-up.

Geocaching for a daytime activity (Garmin 60CS).

Shortwave and scanner listening during the evening (Eton E1 and Uniden BC278CLT).

I go through periods when I renew my interest in astronomy (Orion 80mm short tube refractor and AZ3 altazimuth tripod). The tripod is the most awkward thing I travel with and it generally travels in the trailer on the bed, back against the rear trailer wall. Once I'm settled in it moves into the truck behind the seats. I haven't yet brought the 8" Newtonian anywhere with the trailer.

Besides the obvious (hiking), I sometimes bring my kayak, or if I'm at the beach - sport kites. Used to take a mountain bike but with the dogs now, I mostly walk with them.

Watercolor and ink sketching

Round the campfire - various little projects - the latest is a silent auction acquisition of a Native American Flute Kit - so I'm carving and doing the finish work on that (and then I'll have to learn to play it )

If you ever see me on the road, then you know where I'm a headin' or returning from.

Small streams with a fly rod are me favorite destinations.

Geocaching is a hobby the wife and I picked up after meeting some people who told us all about it last fall at the TearJerkers rally here in Maine.
We've been out and about in the area around our location in Western Maine and the White Mountains of NH but now that snow is on the ground we have left it off for the winter but I am sure while we are camping this summer we too will be out hunting down little treasures.
GPS unit is a Garman Etrex and it works great after useing an outdated Magellen from the early 90's

I'm with Rob . Cooking is my hobby (and that includes collecting cook books). I attempt things out camping that I probably would not do at home. After all, if you have to walk 20 miles to the nearest McDonalds, you are gonna eat what is is front of you .

That would be us most of the time too Fred. I just bought a new fly rod land reel ast weekend.

I bought a color pencil set and a small sketch pad, I can't really draw but I'm going to try. I also like to collect drift wood and interesting rocks. Reading is good. So is setting in a lawn chair drinking a soda or a beer!

Mostly, reading. OTOH, most of my "road time" is attached to a 53' moving trailer

When I'm out with the egg, kayaking/wildlife spotting.

I wish I still had the pictures of my kayak attached to the 5th wheel of the semi

Taking in pleasant surroundings, photography, hiking, reading. Enjoying nature without having to sleep in a tent which must be taken down even if it rains cats and dogs.
