When a JW, I began to get seriously into mountaineering / rock / ice climbing. Somehow I escaped being counselled about it, by talking to an elder in advance of their finding out, and having a fit. (i.e. statistics prove that more persons die from unroped "scrambling" than mountaineering with ropes)
Did any of you ever get counselled for "extreme" sports that you may have enjoyed? Keep in mind that to an elder that "skateboarding" was once considered extreme sports, and would love to hear stories about that!
