Suggest Something Fun?

ĎSup, Pit.

Recently, Iíve come to the conclusion that I need to engage in some sort of physical activity that is exciting, requires little though, and that will allow me to unleash the warrior within. I need something fun, energetic and that will help me feel alive again. Perhaps risky, even.

What activities do you all do, and what activities would you suggest?

Whatever you do, don't do stupid frat shit like Tough Mudder.

You live in Scotland, you have one of the most unique landscapes on the planet. Go hiking, go running, go take a stick and try to take down a boar with your bare hands.

Disclaimer: Don't actually try to take down a boar with your bare hands

Nah, I'm not really into organised events or clubs.

To be honest, that's kinda what I feel like doing: just putting running gear, going out into nature and treating it like a playground.

Thanks.

EDIT: I maybe wouldn't mind boxing or something either, but I tried that when I was 9 and quit because it was clear that I was going to get brain damage. Haha.

Learn a martial art

Run up a tree

Juggle knives

Tornado chase

Drop coins into a swirly donation thing and watch it go, wheeeeee

Bark at someone every time they move, but have them do the same thing so you just stand there low-growling at each other for an hour

Babysit for someone you know who has toddlers to give them a break. Last time I did this, I returned from a 2 minute bathroom break and the 4 year-old was running around outside, and the 2 year-old was spinning around with my backpack over his head.

I need adrenaline all the time, plus I would never dream of working out so I have to stay fit somehow. Today I rode my motocross 2 hrs and windsurfed Atlantic waves 2 hrs, then played guitar 3 hrs. Probably about the same again tomorrow, watching Dexter season premier now, meh

Yep, I want to get fit too, but I also would never just lift weights or go on the treadmill or something.

EDIT: That's the word I was looking for: I need adrenaline.

I always like to tell the story about the time me and a friend chased a white stag (an albino deer) through a large Northern German forest for about six hours, through and over all terrain. THAT is the kind of stuff that feels badass. Not crawling under barbed wire like some wanna-be soldier.

I don't have anywhere near that kind of stamina anymore, but man, that feeling of being like "What, a wild river? That's not an obstacle. Some wild swamp? I used my wits to navigate through it. There's a thick brush of thorny bushes? I emerged scratched and panting." is what makes you feel good. I hate the fact I've lost that, even being only 24.

But I can totally imagine me smashing my face into a wall after the first 10 seconds.

This had to be the only answer OP was hoping for, it just fits his wording too perfectly.

That sounds awesome. Especially running through the bushes and just being like "**** it. Let's go."

I'm 23, and I was really active as a child and in my early teens, and I feel like I've lost it. It's sad.
