Weaver95: if I lived down under, I'd put myself into a sealed bubble and never ever never leave it. Australia == death world.
Andromeda: Pretty sure this is a repeat. I had the same nod of satisfaction that they put finding a geocache on the list.
vudukungfu: Ordinary day for a kid in Vermont.
spittman: My girls are 6 and 4 and I think they can easily cross off 35+ of those. I'm sure we'll add quite a few of the remaining ones this summer. The funny thing is that they came up with most of these on their own. Went camping last summer and they spent an hour or so damming up a little stream with rocks.
abhorrent1: Isn't this from like 2 years ago? Has the internet run out of ideas?
eyemarten: Conkers and Poo sticks?No thanks.
PunGent: 14. Dam a streamSorry, kid...not without permission from the Planning Council, the Town Council, the county, the state, and an environmental impact statement, filled out in triplicate.Hey, you'll get your merit badge in red tape, though...
1nsanilicious: They could have saved a lot of space in that article by simply stating become a Boy/Cub Scout.
fruitloop: 51. Crash your bikeEvery kid should have a cool bike crash story./homemade ramp//scrapes, chipped a tooth on the handlebars///no helmet
FC Exile: We played poo stick all the time./Different rules though.
ohokyeah: Looks like that list is skewed for the Pacific Northwest. Some of those are impossible unless you're in a particular region.
AsBaile: Build a fort in the woods with leftover particle board and wood scraps
KarmicDisaster: This is from Austria, so they should gave stuff like...1) Bait a Roo2) treat a snakebite3) Barbie a shrimp4) Roll in red dustetc.
Cheron: My kids are the outdoor types so we would call this list "the weekend."/only nine year old in his class with his own set of crampons
Kibbler: I did most of the things on the list. I would add:*snipped for brevity"When I was a kid, we never went to Disney (though we went to a place called King's Island a couple of times). We never flew anywhere, went to anyplace exotic, or for example, did something like go to Sea World, and pay extra to get into a pool with dolphins. (Nothing wrong with any of those things.) We weren't poor but we were far from rich, so our excursions were in the car, pulling a trailer. I've never regretted it for a second. I had a lively imagination and I made my own fun. I wouldn't trade it for all of the let-us-entertain-you-for-a-price experiences imaginable.
Fano: 51. Bear crawls
fruitloop: 51. Crash your bikeEvery kid should have a cool bike crash story.
DrunkenInsomniac: Introduce yourself to the local hospital/doctor, let them know you'll be back
AdrienVeidt: Thanks for the heads-up on geocaching. Heading to the Grand Canyon next month with the nieces and nephew, gonna give that a try.
Cloudchaser Sakonige the Red Wolf: Who says you have to be a kid to enjoy those things?
slayer199: KarmicDisaster: This is from Austria, so they should gave stuff like...1) Bait a Roo2) treat a snakebite3) Barbie a shrimp4) Roll in red dustetc.5) Survive a bite from the funnel-web spider6) Kill a crock armed only with a knife7) Avoid Sting Rays8) Go on walkabout

nekom: fruitloop: 51. Crash your bikeEvery kid should have a cool bike crash story./homemade ramp//scrapes, chipped a tooth on the handlebars///no helmetMine involved a wasp, a tree and a broken collar bone.
THX 1138: 12. Make a trail with sticksThis doesn't sound remotely interesting, unless it means something much better than what I'm imagining.
OregonVet: I pictured grabbing a sturdy stick and thrashing away brush to get to a previously inaccessible place.... We did that.
