I got on an airplane with all my siblings and flew to Seattle to board a cruise to Alaska. All against my grain. One of the most unexpected yet best decisions of my life.

That's easy.

1.Took the Amtrak in Europe whilst carrying a humongous backpack and having to lift it up above a LONG string of people over (about) an 8 car length.
2. Pastored a church (or my hubby did.)

(The two were equally exciting, disturbing, humiliating, exhilarating, and basically unforgettable.)

Perhaps, though I didn't recognise it at the time, swim well over a mile across the lake to go to a park that my parents told me was too far away for me to get to on my bike. And no, I didn't ask or tell them about the swim.

Oh, boy! I've done a few, I guess...some I never thought I would ever do.

And my adventurous days are now over...these days I've become one of those boring old farts! I suppose that's pretty adventurous...because I thought I'd never do that!! :)

Took a three week canoe voyage into Northern Ontario wilderness with my brother. My wife took out a hundred thousand dollar life insurance policy (she was pregnant and without a job) My safe return may have bee a disappointment though fifty years later she denies that...:)

I drove myself all the way to the Florida Keyes n back to Massachusetts's in a 2-week vacation from my old job, n visited a bunch of people. It was 2001 after 9/11. I mapped the whole trip in my atlas book some one gave me. I had a boyfriend in Miami at the time. He taught at Mass Maritime up here. It didn't work out well for us that trip.

Adventure?
Me??
Ha Ha.
I suppose there's that time my brother and I rode our bikes 18 miles to the next town to go swimming because their pool had a diving board and ours didn't. We stayed all day and rode home after dark.

Think it was applying to do a degree course as a mature student and handing my notice in before I was even offered a place. I was scared stiff the first day going back to studying at 36 with 2 children and being one of the few mature students in those "olden days". Loved it and never regretted it.

I've done a lot of crazy things in my life, but when I was about 11, a friend and I missed the school bus taking us to a class trip to some big Catholic convocation in NYC so we took a city bus by ourselves. Our teacher, Sister Pauline, didn't know whether to hug us or throttle us.

  21. I went down the Chattahoochee River on a raft three times and hated it every time. Enough of that - I finally said, when a boyfriend wanted me to do that a fourth time. Nope - not gonna.
