terrifically descriptive title there, eh
i'm talking about like huge things people do in the spirit of adventure, sometimes for charity, sometimes just for the hell of it. things like running seven ultra marathons in seven days, or climbing Everest and then, i dunno, climbing somewhere else too
sparked by a mate of mine, who's deciding to spend his last throes of youth cycling the Pan-America highway. that's cycling from the northern coast of Alaska to the southern tip of Argentina. all by bike (well, there's like a section between Panama and Colombia that doesn't exist, so god knows what he does there). this is just the sort of thing i don't even know where to start about imagining. so much cycling, god knows what sleeping arrangements, god knows how much money, and that's before you even start getting to countries where visa issues and national borders might present more of a problem. and the heat of summer. yeesh.
what's the most OTT adventure/travel whatever thing someone you know's done? or maybe you've done something pretty damn awesome like that, and want to tell us about it so we can coo over you. tell us about it
let's have an adventure wednesday, help lift some of the drudgery from our lives and live vicariously through others.
