This article is a first pass at creating a catch-all article for travel topics that correspond to the "Do" article heading (as discussed on Talk:Travel topics#General travel topic articles). The idea is that activities should be listed on this article first, and only when the information becomes "large and complex" (per the Wikitravel:What is an article? standard) should a separate article be considered. I've copied information from some of the stub articles such as Snowmobiling and ATV Riding back to this article and made the existing articles into redirects to emphasize the point that only when we have enough information to warrant a separate article should one be created.

The headings used in this article aren't great and could be improved ("Winter activities", "Sports", etc), and it would be nice to have a bit more of a general overview for some of the existing topic articles, but otherwise I think this is a good way to provide people with a forum to include information about their favorite travel activity without the need to create a new article for each one. In the future I would envision a further breakdown as more travel topic activities are added, but for now this level of granularity seems like enough.

Unless people object I'd like to plunge forward and create more of the general articles described in Talk:Travel topics#General travel topic articles, but I'll let this one simmer for a bit so that everyone has an opportunity to speak up they see any problem or is opposed to this idea. -- Ryan 15:50, 7 August 2006 (EDT)
