I've noticed a bit of knitting, sewing etc. How does this relate to rangering? I can sew my hockey pads with fishing line but it is not pretty.

The archery thing I could get into. I have a compound bow, and attempted hunting one season. I took one shot and hit a small buck, sadly rains came in and we had trouble tracking him. I found him but he them took off, ZOMBIE!

Fishing has always been my thing and I am trying to find a way to work it into my challenge.

DIY is very Rangerly, and Steve used to do challenges, I don't think he's done any for a while now.

Well, there's the practical aspect of making clothes and such (every fall I get the knitting bug!). And making/fixing/reusing stuff seems to fit with the be-ready-for-anything Ranger 'tude

The hockey gear thing is out of necessity. Goalie pads are crazy expensive but yeah diy is great.

My challenge, when I update it will have me working on my deck, very rangerly maybe? I am a diy whore. Cars and house/yard.

Hockey is so expensive in general, goalie stuff must be ridiculous!  (I'm not even into hockey and yet I know this, side effects of being Canadian?) I totally understand McGyvering it to work, I might have duct/electical taped a pair of rugby cleats together this spring until they were completely dead...

I lucked out and played at a very high level, free equipment and all. I am 35 now and my last set of stuff I got at a huge discount.

At this point though if I want new stuff I may have to buy it myself, so I am trying to preserve what I have.

That sounds awesome!  The only things missing is some maple whiskey and a moose.  Otherwise you've gone full Canuck!

So many challenges are up already! There really is no stopping you lot is there!

 

I love how some people are inviting other rebels to get involved in their challenges (LadyShello and Curl Brogo for example). Such a fantastic idea, it really highlights the great community spirit of this group. Go Rangers!

Boards went up yesterday after I left the office, probably while I was lifting something. Still playing catch-up with the old threads and scouting the new challenges. Comments and follows are minimal yet, but a "like" is a sure indication that I read and support. Want to finish with everybody else before posting my own thread. So much excitement already!
