What Has Been Your Life's Greatest Adventure To Date?

Recommended Posts

Me:

 

Definately, raising children! :o :lol: Even childbirth was an adventure as my oldest decided to come 7 weeks early and I was helicoptered out of my small town to the big city hospital.

 

I'll have to think on my life's second greatest adventure...

 

Looking forward to hearing all of yours!

My greatest adventure was building this house that I live in today. It took 3 years out of my life, but my husband and I did it. Mostly by ourselves also. During that time we were invited to travel to Hawaii with my parents for the adventure of our lives. Two weeks of beauty and fun. Swimming and eating and touring each of the islands. One week via ship. I doubt I will ever experience anything like that again. I will carry those memories forever. Sheryl


Strength and Warmth,

WOW - There have been so many. I've climbed to the top of two 14,000 foot mountains. It was like being on top of the world. I've sea kayaked off Vancouver Island, rafted in Alaska, packed through canyons in Utah and mountain ranges in New Mexico, Colorada and Washington. I've hike to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and back out a couple of time. My hubby and I were always seeking out places that few have been and we found many of them. Our world is a gorgeous place!

 

Now we're seeking out adventures in warm places that required minimal physical effort, but offer gorgeous views. Got any ideas?

Janey, how about a hot air balloon ride wearing a big fat, non-flammable coat.

 

I've had some crazy adventures: holiday in the Phillipines. 2 weeks in Japan. Getting engaged and planning our wedding/honeymoon in 5 weeks.

 

Scleroderma is a crazy adventure all in its own.

You never know what you're going to get.

Janey,

 

Yes, If you've not already been, Hurricane Ridge just outside Port Angeles WA. Come in summer (Aug.) when it's warm. As for minimal physical effort, you just drive the 17 miles to the top!

 

360 degree views of the Olympic Mountains and some short easy, PAVED walks. Also a lodge at the top.

 

If you really come, you have to look me up and I will give you the tour of the Olympic Penninsula.

 

Where have you already been in WA?

 

I am jealous of your Alaska rafting trip. I grew up camping and rafting Cle Elum River in Eastern WA. I was a "river rat" couldn't get enough...

Barefut,

Thanks for the link to Hurricane Ridge! It's beautiful and is now on my list of place to see! We've been backpacking in the Quinault (sp?) rain forest of the Olympia. It was beautiful. Unfortunately our backpacking stove gave out on us the first night. We had enough "non-cook" foods to make is two more days, but as we approached the top of the pass, the snow kept getting deeper and deeper. We soon lost the trail, so never having had done this particular trail, we did the smart think and turned back. It was still a good trip!

 

The balloon ride is on my list as well. The International Balloon Festival is held every October where I live, but it's always too crazy to try to schedule a ride. Plus they up the cost during the festival. The hubby's been up a couple of times, so I'm next.

 

Big Hugs,

Janey

Janey,

 

Oh Goody! Do contact me before you come!

 

It is my dream to take a guided overnight backpacking trip through the Olympics before I die. I am ashamed at myself for always wanting to do it but not having done it yet. Especially since the Olympics are right in my own "backyard". People come from all over the world to hike here. And now.........scleroderma to hold me back. I am still keeping it on my list of things to do. That, and a guided river rafting trip down the Snake River. Maybe someday I can go with my sons when they are old enough.

 

AHHHH there's nothing like the GREAT outdoors!

 

 

Love,

Barefut


Take care,

Barefut

Well, I guess I have to add to the list of "mommy" being my biggest adventure. It's definitely been a wild ride, and I'm sure it is far from ending anytime soon!Runing a close second is our first Anniversary. We went to St. Kitt's in the West Andies. But I was 3 weeks pregnant and sicker than a dog! I couldn't even watch our vacation video for the longest time afterward without feeling nauseous! And, actually, I'm hoping that I haven't had my greatest adventure yet! Lookin' forward to it!


Happy people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have!

 

Warm and Happy to you! Vee
