In Search of Thrills?

If one of your New Year's Resolutions was to do something adventurous, you might like to take a look at this list of vacation suggestions. I would go for the sailplane flight over New Zealand, I think. Maybe someday I'll actually do it, along with hiking the Grand Canyon and going on a hot air balloon flight (my formerly secret wishes).

Wow, Katie....most of those are a bit wild for my faint heart. If I could only pick from that list, I suppose I would take the helicopter ride in Hawaii.....except, I would be conveniently "late" for the helicopter,head back to my hotel, and look for other things to do!

Oh, those look like such fun!! I wouldn't try the shark one, but everything else looks great! I'd love to try white water rafting, and the New Zealand one looks like a lot of fun too.

Mrs. Kelly,

Ha, Ha! There are certainly lots of things to do in Hawaii, most of them much less life-threatening!

Lindsay,

I agree that white-water rafting would be fun, or at least exciting! I'm not completely sure though because I did not have a good time when I went tubing, and rafting seems like the same type of activity. I'm sure it's a lot different, though. I spent the whole tubing trip either stuck in the doldrums or bashing my posterior on stones.

The Air Combat is DEFINITELY the best choice up there.

The shark one looks cool, as does the New Zealand trip

Katie,
Did you notice that they euphemistically titled the first one "Zero-Gravity Flight?" The title that those with NASA call it is, "The Vomit Comet." Doesn't sound so appealing now, does it? If you want to do any of these things, just give Gene a shout, he'd be more than happy to accompany you; as for me, this land lubber is staying firmly planted on the ground!

BTW, I'm anxiously awaiting your list of 7s.
