Its too bad that more women don't understand the value of teaming up with their husbands. The outdoors is a way out of the house and a chance to get out in the world. Instead they opt for a life that is boring and separated. Even if doing so under a pretence, if they go, they just might begin to like it. My wife, Joyce, did not start out as a whizz-bang angler and fireing a gun for the first time she closed her eyes. (To this day she can't ride a bike.) But they rise out of that and soon reap the rewards of the outdoors the same as men do.

Of course they pay an awful social price: Other women will hate them, largely because their husbands use Joyce as an example. Another, very distressing, story in itself.
