The Great Indoorsman Heads Outdoors


Add to iTunes | Add to YouTube | Add to Google | RSS Feed

So what happens, exactly, when the Great Indoorsman attempts to spend time outdoors? I’ll tell you – I slept for hours when I got home… after I hugged my computers and blew kisses to my electrical outlets!

I went hiking with a friend, two miles up to Rattlesnake Ridge. The scenery was beautiful, definitely. But I admit I started to get the shakes after about 20 minutes of being up there in all that fresh air and sunshine. Where was the fake glow from the screen? Where were the comforting sounds of the fans whirring quietly to keep my machines nice and cool?

I’m not sure how often I may repeat this endeavor. However, at least now we know I can survive it.

Everyone knows that when you camp, you must stay warm with a sleeping bag. Heck, you likely even need a flashlight close at hand, for any number of unkown reasons.

It’s true that I am the Great Indoorsman. I can do pretty much anything indoors that you can do outdoors. I have my sleeping bag, and I have my flashlight. And – I just used my flashlight to help me get warmer! See how clever I am?!

The Great Indoorsman is a new series that I am putting together. If you have ideas of things I can do in future segments, email me!

Learn to Start a Fire with the Great Indoorsman

Without a source of heat and light, you will have a difficult time surviving the night. Cavemen used to rub sticks together, creating fiction, and thereby creating fire. For thousands of years, mankind (and women too!!) have relied on fire for heat, cooking abilities, and much more. Fire is essential to our lives, and every Great Indoorsman needs to know how to properly start one!

Normally, I use a night light at the end of the hallway because I’m scared of the dark, but… yeah. The Great Indoorsman strikes again!

Hard-Core Climbing with the Great Indoorsman

There’s nothing like a good hike to get your blood pumping. Were you aware of the health benefits of doing something like this? You can burn calories, increase muscle tone, improve your circulation – and live longer!

I enjoy quite a few indoor activities, but one of my favorites is climbing. There’s just something magical about reaching the top. You look all the way down, and feel such a sense of accomplishment! Sure, you might be frustrated when you have to make your climb several times a day (or hour!) like I do. But each and every time you get to the summit, the sense of pride and wonder is there all over again. You’ve done it! You know you can keep going, but sadly – there’s nowhere left to go other than back down.

Let’s not discuss that whole running out of breath thing. I’m not old, and I’m not out of shape. I’m the Great Indoorsman!!

I am a great indoorsman, it’s true. There’s nothing like living in the great indoors. These four walls make you feel… alive! Why would I need to go out *THERE* just to have some fun? I can do anything indoors that you can do outdoors. I can even get myself a tan, right in front of my monitors.

If you like to eat toasted marshmallows, but don’t like to camp outside, why not use your stove? As you can see, it’s quite easy to do. Just make sure you’re careful, and don’t set your indoors on fire. Cuz then – you’ll be living outdoors! We wouldn’t want that, now would we?

You, too, can become a great indoorsman. Heck, you might already be one! Share your indoorsman stories with the rest of the world. Let’s show those outdoors-y types what they’re missing out on!
