None of the sporting goods stores in DC seem to carry badminton sets, so definitely looking for something that can be ordered online. [more inside]

Are there any great, multi-day, non-wilderness walks in the U.S.?

Are there any great mixed rural/small-town/semi-urban long walks in the U.S.? I'm searching for multi-day, maybe even multi-week routes that are not strict backpacking and would not require the carrying of a tent. More inside. [more inside]

Get me off my butt.

After getting married, and starting a new (temporarily lower paying) job, money is tight. During the wedding planning, I thought, "Man, when I have the money again, I'd love to get back to rock climbing or take a French class". Well, the money is still tight, and looks to be for a while. What are some hobbies I can pick up that would cost very little to no money per month? [more inside]

Do I have a shot at the Olympics?

I'm 24. Let's say I wanted to have a shot at the Olympics, in any sport, at some point in the future. Are my chances over? Is there a sport I could start now, dedicate the next few years to, and become good enough to be a contender? What sport should that be? (I'm not picky.) [more inside]

Training for Skiing

I've agreed on short notice to go skiing next week, and realize that I'm out of shape. Is there anything I can do to prepare myself so that I'm not putting myself at risk of injury, or that will keep my legs from feeling very sore after the first day? I only have 8 days.

Kids' Hockey

Hello, my name is Orange Swan, I'm a Canadian, and [takes deep breath] I don't know very much about hockey. Kids' hockey teams have levels, and the levels seem to be Novice, Atom, PeeWee, Bantam, and Midget. Does anyone know the age range breakdown for each of these levels?
