I like outdoor kinds of TV programming. I like all those hunting and fishing shows. If I am not working or out with my family (usually on an outdoor adventure), you will probably find me watching a show about my hobbies and interests on TV. For me, I cannot find any service that has more channels dedicated to sportsmen, fishermen and hunters that what I find in satellite television packages. I pay a couple of extra bucks for a specialty package of outdoor kinds of channels and I think it is worth it.
I like watching the shows to learn the latest techniques as well as see the latest gear being put through its paces. At my house we go hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, kayaking, canoeing, power boating, skiing, snowshoeing and the list continues. It takes some overtime to make sure we are outfitted properly for our adventures. Yes, we do have a family RV. It is a Class C that is a few years old and we have a great time in it. However, we also like tent camping. We put the kayaks on the truck and go tent camping at a local State Park at least one weekend a month. We do winter camping too. Yes, we are crazy like that. Winter is ice fishing, skiing and other fun stuff.
There are times though that we have to stay home. Then we watch something on TV on one of the outdoor channels that gets us interested in our next adventure. We are planning a trip to Alaska. It would be cool to be rich and just go, but we have to plan and save to do the stuff we want to do. I spend my time paying attention to what the pros actually use out in the field. You can usually weed out the endorsement shots that are worse than what you see in car racing to find out what gear is actually in use. On documentaries about Himalayan mountain climbers you can see things such as the parka brands they are wearing and what they use to boil water at high elevations. This is just a sample of what I pick up watching those outdoor shows.
