I have also taken the (very) small step of starting archery, that went down easily at least and there's a club just 10 minutes away.
Unfortunately I probably won't be starting until may. :(

That has worked well. What really gets me is that I came 'this' close to picking up archery 2 years ago as a skill in the duke of Edinburgh's award, instead I went for the easy option and just kept going with my flute. Oh well, that happens...

What kind of a bow do you use? The modern one or the traditional one?

How is archery back on topic?

This is about breaking the news to your parents...

Okay, really back on topic now;

I've pretty much told my parents that I'm going to go live in a treehouse out in the middle of nowhere and make flash games, I just left out the part where I tell them that I'm living in the middle of nowhere with a bunch of other people, and that I'm doing it cause of Avatar. :P

If you where talking to me about the bow, then I shoot a 29lbs longbow.

see, I think my mom would be more ok with me going to do this because she is a fairly naturalist person.  She enjoys nature and we go on family trips to spend like a week or two in a cabin.  Although I'm not sure if a whole year or forever might be a bit more extream then she'd like...

I can't get a Longbow here in Malaysia. :( Maybe when the eco-village is up you guys can help me get hold of one and teach me to use it. Here in Malaysia, the only type of bows we use are synthetic ones.

make one then ! go on teh internet and look up the backstreet bowyer PDF (its useful, i prefer the bowyers bible though) then basically find the wood you want, there should be a list of good bow woods (yew is the best for longbows, supposedly) then season it and then follow the instructions on making it! you will probably have to wait 6 months if your seasoning it yourself.
