I live and breath better the more I'm out away from an artificial environment. I have almost been run over 4 times in my lifetime by speeders while walking up to the store or back to my vehicle in the parking lot. This after looking both ways and being clear to walk across. I have been conditioned to avoid places with crowds and any noise.

For the record, I don't consider hunting a sport or a challenge until we find a way to arm the animals so they can shoot back.
Shooting a defenseless animal for sport is not a sport or my idea of fun.

I do have many friends that hunt and I don't have any animosity towards them or any hunters. But hunting is not my thing.

avoid any CG with "resort" in the name


Don't believe the resort part. I've been to a few that didn't say "resort" but were way better than a few I've been to that did. It's a pretty loosely used marketing term, kinda like "heart healthy" and "partial zero emissions vehicle".

Hunting an fishing while accurate was rhetorical. So many have lost connection with reality outside the box they live in which includes all the urban sidewalk and corner cafes and shopping malls. Tehy consume the total days of many.
As per hunting and fishing spent many day and walked countless miles in the wild not shot or caught a thing. The pursuit and the quiet and nature God's green earth was enough. Let many deer just walk by ore even up to me. Visited many places we would call houses where Ancestors lived ad hunted from and soon. Didn't shoot anything, many times but found what I was hunting.

I guess your overall point is many do not enjoy the great outdoors which may have some validity.
However I think you are preaching to the wrong crowd. RV'ers in general spend more time outdoors than most.
While I'm not suggesting all RV'ers are hiking, and fishing. I do think they spend more time outside vs. your typical fly in motel traveler.
One of the few things RV'ers have in common is the outdoors.
WE all have to deal with the outdoors, be it making a campfire or setting up in the rain.Rvers spend their fare share of time outdoors vs. the public at large

We experience both by pulling our Jeep Rubicon. We park in a nice RV park, and then take the Wrangler out and explore the great outdoors. We hike, bike and 4 wheel.

Not exactly. We have a few places where we go to camp and fish. I tow the boat trailer with the motorhome, and my wife follows driving the 4x4 GMC Envoy. I drive off the paved road, and take a non-paved road to the camping site (no hookups). I use the 4x4 to launch the boat, from a gravel bar which is suitably sloped. We usually camp and fish for 3 days.

Sometimes, an RV is the smart compromise between a couple, one of whom is an avid outdoorsperson, and the other who prefers the great indoors :-)
