What adventure activity are you still waiting to try?

So much to do with this group. Excited about a lot of them.

Adventure to any part of the world, where would it be?

Still need to get to South America, Africa, Australia and New Zealand. Been everywhere else.

What is the coolest Adventure you've done?

Only have done one with this group. But i'd label it an extremely well run and worthwhile experience. Did the Basic Sailing Certification. It was two day bootcamp style, but it was a blast. Not with the group, I'd have to say my 5 openwater dives in Grand Bahama to get my NAUI cert over new years eve were awesome (especially the shark dive)

What kind of adventure activities do you do?

The "3 Red Heads" adventures seem to be right up my alley. Flying, biking, hiking, sailing, and running... along with any thing else you can label "new experiences"

How did you hear about us?

What Keith is saying about this Meetup Group

Unique experience - soar like a bird is an apt analogy! You're completely unencumbered (unlike in a plane) to see everything underneath you. The controls are basic (like a shopping cart - push on one side while pulling on the other to turn... really basic controls!), and the flying is easy. Very exciting and exhilirating. Gives you the taste of flying and is a lot less expensive then that of a private pilots lessons. If interested in going further - Basic cost is around $1200 for 20 lessons (which will get you to the point where you can fly solo) as opposed to $7000-8000 for 60 hours flight time which will get you your private pilots license to fly. Recommend both... but one is better on a budget!
