MBK: atlfarkette: hot air balloon ride
get my scuba cert
rock climbing

We were talking about those last night.  They are expensive and stupid because how romantic can it be if it is you, your SO, and some fat guy who is piloting the balloon?  And there isn't much room in those baskets.

Just weird.


My weird phobia that that basket would break and I would fall to my death, would reduce to a hyperventilating idiot curled into a ball for the entire trip

Ceteris Paribus says: I highly recommend petting penguins, kangaroos, giraffe, and rhinos.


I've cared for penguins (Boston Aquarium).  On the surface it sounds neat, but in reality, they are grouchy and very, very smelly.  Like, so smelly that if you've been in the exhibit (wetsuit), two showers are not enough to get the smell off of you.

...but when you find a one that is friendly, well, they are very, very cute.

Anne.Uumellmahaye: Lucky LaRue: Anne.Uumellmahaye: I want to hunt something with a spear. Preferably something that can't really fight back. A fish or wombat or something.

I'll take you frog gigging.

Yes! Then can we go catfish noodling?


I don't put my fingers in muddy water where snapping turtles like to lurk, but I've got connections.

CapeFearCadaver: Solty Dog: Hike in the nude


It's better if you do. Then you can see the ticks on you before they borrow in.


Assuming they're burrowing in a place that's readily visible.

I didn't even think of it as a romance thing. A friend recently (last fall) went to that big ass hot air balloon festival they have out in New Mexico and it looked awesome!!

CatherineM: Maybe go fishing or camping..


I hated camping when I was married.  Now spending time with the kids in the middle of nowhere, or even by myself is pretty fun.  No more than 2 nights though.

Voiceofreason01: I don't get the love for traveling. It's mostly boring and uncomfortable and when you get where-ever you're going you're mostly going to have to deal with the same kind of assholes that you have at home but without the advantage of getting to actually go home at the end of the day.


For me, it's the sights and the history. I could tab over to Street View right now and get a panorama of pretty much anywhere I'd want to go, but standing there and experiencing it is a completely different level.

Thing: go to space.
Reason: Lack of rocket

Thing: Hot Air Balloon
Reason: See skydiving

It's weird how all of mine involve being off the ground. I'm not scared of heights persay, but I do have a SERIOUS respect for them. For instance, I would NEVER do this:

laughingsquid.com

Or This:

encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com

Or this:

img.fark.net

NOPE! NOPE! NOPE!

Even in looking for images for things that I would not do, my testicles retreated into my stomach at a rapid pace.

Solty Dog:
Demolition Derby

oooooh....that could be fun.

generalDisdain: Own a minor league baseball team.


If I ever win the lottery that is exactly what I will do.

That's when it's nice to have a girlfriend around so y'all can check each other. Nude. In the bathroom. Sensually.

Anne.Uumellmahaye: Skydiving isn't unattainable, guys. Just go. It really is that simple.

I want to hunt something with a spear. Preferably something that can't really fight back. A fish or wombat or something.


Not that simple. I'm accident prone. If the jump didn't kill me, the wife would.

I just want to sing "A Whole New World" to someone :(

I want to be able to pause time and pick pocket people for $20 at a clip.  That way I never have to work, and I don't feel too bad about someone out $20.

Voiceofreason01: I don't get the love for traveling.


There's lots of different ways to travel and reasons for traveling.  There's visiting other cities, there's visiting beautiful natural areas, there's shopping, relaxing, activities you can't do at home (SCUBA, rock climbing, hiking, fishing, etc), visiting historical landmarks, etc. etc.  It could just be that the traveling you've done in the past - or the person/people you normally travel with - aren't compatible with what you'd ideally be looking for.  There's also the possibility that traveling just isn't for you, and you'd rather spend your time off relaxing at home, which is completely legit.

LaurenAguilera: maudibjr: Visit Norway
Visit Sweden
Visit any other country that I haven't mentioned that is very cold yet first world.
Become a ninja

I'm just going to say this.


We could travel through Scandanavia visiting all of their various well known bloomin' Onion establishments.  It could be awesome.

Take lessons at the range. Seriously.

It's a blast, though.

I plan to.
To add to that, I'd also love to skin an animal that I've caught, clean it, and keep the pelt and meat.

Oh, yah. Jet skiing and water skiing. I water skied once when I was little but I barely remember it.

I was at a train station the other day and saw a recipe for Mexican Flag chili in a book. I took a photo of it and plan to make it in my solar oven. MMmmmmmmmm

Pangit: I'm not scared of heights persay, but I do have a SERIOUS respect for them


This weekend a friend and I wait in line for 45 mins to do one of those ropes courses where you are harnessed in and can move about on your own. We get all strapped in and head up the stairs to start and we get to the first obstacle which is like two metal beams about 2 1/2 feet apart. When you look down you can see people playing arcade games and stuff about 30 feet below you. I start to cross it and hear my friend say, "I can't do this!" She turns around and goes right back down the stairs and leaves me to roam around the course all by myself like a loser. The course went up two more stories and I went up one level but that last level just seemed really high so I never went up to it. It's not like I could get hurt but my knees were getting shaky when I looked down.

This is kinda my train of thought. Man, I love hot showers.. I mean, I've camped in a trailer before but since that doesn't really count, I've thought maybe I can't talk shiat about camping unless I've done it, so..
 
2014-04-15 10:36:36 AM  
Two chicks at the same time.
Play Octodad: The Dadliest Catch.

Attend one of those mega-huge Fark parties, like that one that was in Vegas a while ago.
Score a try in a Rugby Union game (I got two feet away once).
Go to a rugby international.
Go to a top flight European soccer match.

I want to go hunting with a paintball gun.  None of that sitting in a treeblind for hours crap either.  I want to stalk and tag an animal, but I don't want to kill it.

Because sleeping in the woods can be really awesome. Campfires are also really sweet.

It's an easy way to get drunk/high and have sex when you're a teenager living with your parents.  I'm not sure why people do it after that point.
