Take it from someone who has been hiking/camping for 40+ years, started doing 
trail work for 30+ years ago, started wiring card sorters 20+ years ago, and is 
now a CIO "pull yourself away from technology" gets easier the more you work at 
it and it is key to your sanity.

In the DC area, it seems that folk in the computer field are over represented 
among those doing trail work.  Might have something to do with instant results, 
a touch with reality, and filling a void for physical activity.  Good luck!
