Out, but not too far out

This fun fact from the Leisure Trends Group: Twenty-eight percent of the population went car camping in the last year, but only 5.6% wandered one-quarter mile or more from their car to sack out.

Other random recreation tidbits from the Boulder-based trend watchers:

+ Two percent of the population consider dancing a sport.

+ Every 90 days, 60 percent of the population makes a sport or recreation product purchase.

+ On an average day, 11% of Americans have all day free to do whatever they want.

Who are these 11%ers, and how do I sign up?

Dancing isn't a sport?

I'm an 11%er. But my wife doesn't appreciate it.
