    12 experiences

    Post  Rickster on October 12th 2012, 6:39 pm

    So next April I'm turning 30 and I decided to celebrate by doing 12 things I've never done before. So far I've had Sky Dive, Run a marathon, Bungee Jump, speed dating, and do the Tough Mudder obstacle courses. That’s 5 I need 7 more does anyone here have an suggestions?

    Sky Diving? Bungee jumping? Dude! That's awesome!! I'm unsure if I would be able to stomach jumping out of an airplane, but i kinda' want to.
    Hhmmmm...How about...
    Cave diving
    Swimming with sharks (in a cage of course)
    Hunting (if you haven't already. If you have maybe bear or moose or boar hunting.)
    Blow something up...with dynamite

    Maybe do a couple more social adventures too? You already have speed dating (which I salute you for, since I am too chicken for that myself). How about doing something else that scares you socially? I don't know, walk up to someone you admire from afar (professionally or personally) and introduce yourself, do a networking event, give a party, speak in public, volunteer for animal protection inspection work (you know, the guys that confront (usually agressive) people about abusing their pets). Anything, provided you 1. really want to do it but 2. haven't found the courage to yet.

    Just so you know: I admire you for even wanting to do 12 things you've never done before!

    I think I'm going to add work at a soup kitchen
    and see if I'm brave enough to sing at a Karaoke bar (just the thought of that scares me)

    Well I hope you don't have to do this all in the same day, might get kinda hectic!! Wink

    You could always pull a "Survivorman" and walk out into the woods for a couple days without any supplies, eating slugs and bugs!

    I had a legit offer to go skydiving this Sunday. It's one of my unofficial bucketlist items. I wanted to jump at the chance, but figured the wife would not be super thrilled with the idea.

    Maybe some wild animal adventure? Tame a horse, train an elephant, make a lion jump through a hoop. Or maybe just calm down an agressive rottweiler, dog whisperer style. king
