    I used to do track days, and in the future a cater-field type car (maybe caterham academy) may well be being built....

    We run 10k, 10, 1/2m and one full marathon this year but currently lack motivation....
    We walk miles and miles
    We cycle where we can
    Snowboarding when we can from the van
    Wakeboarding a couple of times every year.

    Hence our username....

    Last year did "Ski-bob" 5 man wheeled bobsleigh, Lillehammer, Norway. As good as a tandem skydive; but different. Apart from meeting up with daughter in Stockholm I'd say one of the highlights of trip, for me. 65.56secs I think top to bottom, great.
    Would like to do some rafting next, UK or Europe, any suggestions?
    cheers

    Not sure about extreme sports, but this sure is an example of extreme old thread revival!:)

    I did open a bottle of wine on my own today!, that got my adrenalin going, and seeing all the scantily clad girls on the beach today, I needed a lie down after that.
