    I don't see why not.

    Only if you do it outdoors. ;-)

Yes, absolutely!

The Great Outdoors Stack Exchange is for people who love outdoor activities, excursions, and outdoorsmanship.


  • Outdoor activity: It's an activity and you have to do it outdoors
  • Excursions: You have to go somewhere unusual (possibly even more or less into the wild) to do it
  • Outdoorsmanship: If you look at it from an American perspective, it's even one of the most fundamental outdoorsmanship-things (just like hunting, fishing etc.)

There are even already questions on this site (or at least one :D).

    I agree but an excursion doesn't have to be out into the wild, but it is a great word for 'going out on a leisure trip to somewhere'! :D
