Camping In Winter – Strength Magazine – November, 1920

Many of the year-round sports of today were a few years back confined to certain seasons. Indoor baseball, indoor rowing and stationary running are examples. And on the other hand, gymnasium exercises and parlor games have been taken outdoors in the summer. I know of a sanatarium where the outdoor gymnasium is more completely equipped and better attended than is the one indoors for winter use. In my home city summer boxing, staged in a baseball park, has become very popular. All this is the result of a natural desire to keep up a good thing. If a fellow’s favorite sport is seasonal he laments the close of that season, and is apt to try extending the pleasurable period in spite of changing
weather.
