Cycling, shooting, hunting, fishing, canoeing, camping, ATVs, etc. If you like to dabble in outdoor activities & have a limited budget & limited time you'll learn your not alone. Interested in starting or restarting some outdoor activities you've never tried or haven't been active in for years? You'll see how I squeeze time and money out of a busy career and family life to enjoy the outdoors. Click on March 2009 to see how I started doing what I enjoy today.

Commute route improves.
The new bike path bridge Northwest of 27th and Capital Parkway and connecting trail are now open making the commute faster and safer. After riding to work and back we rode to the store giving me 23.71 miles today.
I grew up in Central Nebraska riding my bike to a country school, shooting sparrows around the farm with my daisy and fishing in local farm ponds or the loup river. Weekends were often spent at Harlan Reservoir. My family has always taken recreating seriously and it was deeply instilled in me. I evolved to become a avid fisherman and hunter from about age 10 to 15 then got into cars and girls and totally lost interest.
As my own 3 kids have come of age I've got back into outdoor sports and try to nurture a love of the outdoors in them.
I hope my blog encourages you to get out and play, and to include those close to you. You don't need the latest equipment or tons of time, just get out there with what you've got every chance you get. Encourage others to take part, be safe, responsible, and project a good image of the sports you love. Finally, give back, by building awareness, contributing volunteer time or money, and introducing others to the sport, so future generations can enjoy the leisure activities you love. I encourage you to comment on my posts, tell others about nebraskaoutdooraddict.blogspot.com and check back often.
