The most outrageous thing I ever did was kiss my husband for the first time when he wasn't my husband and I was dating another guy. I was 18 and he was 17.
In fact, I was waiting for a bus to take me to a dance where I was to meet up with my boyfriend and DH and another friend were hanging out with me until the bus arrived. When I saw the bus coming, I frenched DH and then got on the bus and left.
Wow!! What a bunch of adventurers we have on this team!! That is awesome to hear! I love going into caves as I did on a vacation once, but all on pre made paths, nothing off the trail. I have hiked on isolated trails when Mom and I would stop on our road trip in BC -but that was twenty years ago. The most outrageous thing I did was playing paintball when it first came out -I was the only girl there and it was out in bush with no biffies :P It sure has come a long way since those early days of the single shot Nel Spot marking pistols!! I played it for ten years,still with mostly guys, in the day and even at nights -I was the first to get a laser sight -got automatic surrenders as soon as I dropped the light on someone :) and went to tournaments, was so much fun -had to give it up when my knees went :(
When one door closes, I simply kick down another one!! Never Give up! Stand Tall, Walk Proud -Dani W, Fitness Instructor Do or do not. There is no try- Yoda Rock bottom became the solid foundation of my life -J.K. Rowling
I hike by myself in Yellowstone National Park, a wonderful place, but not really the safest - I recommend hiking there, but not alone.

In 2004, I ziplined for the first time ever over the Costa Rican rainforest canopy. It was exhilirating, beautiful, frightening and exciting all at the same time. I ziplined last month for the 2nd time in my life in Colorado. While it was fun and challenging, (7 years between times) zipping over dried up riverbeds did not match the same standards as in Monteverde, CR.
I went spelunking (that's exploring caves) when I was a college freshman. It was great and a spur of the moment plan with the caving group on campus. We spent almost 5 hours crawling around in there, exploring areas that hadn't been mapped before and wriggling through small openings. I vividly remember taking off my hard hat to squeeze through a small space...only to find that my bust was a wee bit taller than I had planned for. I did make it through, but there was some definite squishage going on! Oh, was I sore after that trip (a year pre-RA) thanks to about a quarter mile of crawling on not-so-soft gravel. Then there was the half mile of hunched walking to add to it. It was well worth it though for the wonderful sights and great company. Also got to eat lunch in complete darkness--and had a bat skim over my head and chirping all the way at us interrupting his sleep. --Heather
