    What is your life's greatest adventure, if any?  A shark-hunting trip or a week's camping holiday?

    Mine was not an adventure at all by your standards, perhaps.  Just a solo trip around the island where I live in my small sailing boat, a Hunter Medina 20.  But for me it was an adventure and a challenge as well.  It took me 9 hours to complete in a force 5/6 south-easterly wind with waves constantly breaking on my bow and hardly the chance to make a cup of tea.  I arrived back at my moorings dead tired but satisfied that I had been able to make it.

    Around the age of 12, I hiked Mt. Whitney, which at 14,496 feet is the tallest mountain in the continental US.  It was one of those trips that pushed me to my absolute limit but my Dad encouraged me to just take it 100 steps at a time, and I did!

    Like a free ticket on a StarTrek ship to the far reaches of the galaxies.

    You hang on ........ and take each new and day as an adventure!

    Love, Intimacy, Children, Aging, Grandchildren, Financial Success and Failures, Personal Success and Failures, Health problems, Negotiations (with yourself and your partner), the growth of Inner Knowledge, destroying obstacles, building obstacles, co-dependency, Trust, Love, Death.  And On and On, and always with a smile on your lips!

    Wow, Mummyto3boys. And you were only 12.  I do not love heights, so mountain climbing is out for me.  I'm not afraid of the sea, but.

    And Dom Bobbitt I am married myself and I know what you mean.  Marriage IS an adventure and everyone should be determined to make the most of it and make it a successful and satisfying experience.

    Mine was searching for Bigfoot, I looked all over the western mountains for that Hairy SOB, its been two years and I still wont give up. I trained for the search in ohio. Bigfoot killed my dad, right in front of me and hes going to pay. So my adventure i guess is still taking place.

    Going down the shore for 7 days without knowing where I'm going to sleep and only having 20 dollars in my pocket. My friend and I did this just for fun, and it was defiantly an experience haha

    Backpacking the Appalachian Trail. Yep, all the way. I've done some other stuff since, but the AT was the first adventure, and it will always be the greatest.

    I am living my adventure.  I like travelling and for the last few years I have been in China and South Korea teaching English.

    It is better than just travelling - I get to live with the people and get a better understanding of their culture and I get to tour these amazing countries.

    Next?  A ticket to fly around the world.
