While I agree Nexus, but I'm a scaredycat! I'm terrified of doing the slide backwards!
Went ice-skating the other day to "push my boundaries", and after a very shakey start did exactly that, and my hip bone is still tender. =|
I'm surprised I ever learnt to ride a bicycle ... >.<
... I sound like a 60 yr old rather than a 22 yr old... *facepalm*
Hey, it takes allsorts, maybe you aren't an adrenaline junky...but need encouragement from friends, etc. Some work better in groups doing daring/hard/different things, others like to go it alone...
I was 4 when I did my first 'stunt'...I climbed to the very top (and it was bending very badly in the wind too) of a thirty foot tree and got stuck...a male family friend had to rescue me...climbing up and pulling myself up was easy, but looking down, whooo! I didn't cry though, I just called for help and was very glad to be able to get down and climb some other trees...
I've fallen out of countless trees and never broken a bone (yet fingers crossed, no broken bones and I am nearly 35!), just been severely winded. I still love climbing trees and would love to go up into a/the rainforest canopy one day...
Then when I was 10 I got stuck on a hundred foot ledge on the edge of a mountain...my dad had to talk me to where they were...without scaring me and losing me to/off the cliff...iff...iff...iff
I have things on this long list that I need to do before I die or turn 50...white water rafting, bungey jumping, hang gliding, base jumping, kite surfing, parachuting...you know the score...and it will get done...mountain biking is now crossed off the list...it's a weekend addition to my usual nonsense.
Nah, just kidding I'm actually very impressed! And you say you want to do all these things, why not plan something, right now, right here, book a holiday for the next 3-day weekend. With at least one of the things on your list.
Or ! Look into starting to take parachuting lessons on the weekends. It's one day a week, what are you waiting for?
