Do we have anything that even remotely extreme in Washington State? Not quite, but here are a few ideas:
My first pick (and my favorite one) is…Stuntman School. Yes, right here in Mukilteo, Wa. This three week intensive training, with an emphasis on the most basic stunts found in film production, will include : precision driving, fire burns, martial arts, foot/stair/high falls, special effects and more. Whether you want to use this trainings to pursue a career as “stunt performer” or just want to perform your own basic stunts for your friends, you will have a lot of fun during those three weeks. To remember this unforgettable experience ( and show it to your friends), your entire training will be video taped. Who knows, may be you will become some big action star’s double, living in Los Angeles or at least working at Six Flags or Disney.
My second pick is a bit more intense. While on a leisure walk around Pike Market, you are kidnapped and held for ransom. A terrorist attack closes the district and you find yourself in a fix. How do you stay alive? Let’s start with… why you were at Pike Market… Just kidding. But if Pike Market happened to be captured by terrorists, you will need to know how to get to safety on your own and that what “Scout Urban Escape and Evasion” course will teach you. Even if you don’t live in “challenging urban environments”, you can feel like James Bond for a day and learn : ” urban baseline movement and urban awareness training, the use of urban disguises and false papers/identification, lock picking, escaping from unlawful custody, obtaining and driving local transportation, the use of “specialized” urban gear, and instruction on how to develop urban escape and evasion go-bags, etc.” Besides it’s all very practical knowledge (the use false papers/identification,lock picking ? isn’t it?) used in everyday life.
My next two pick are less extreme, but no less fun or practical.
NOLS – National Outdoor Leadership School takes people of all ages on remote wilderness expeditions, teaching technical outdoor skills, leadership, and environmental ethics in some of the world’s wildest and most awe-inspiring classrooms. No, it’s not another adventure company. You won’t be treated like a tourist and don’t expect anybody to do everything for you. It takes practice to learn outdoor skills and time to develop leadership and the wilderness provides the ideal setting for this unique education.The Outdoor Educator courses, featuring backcountry travel, glacier travel, and rock climbing, are truly signatures of NOLS Pacific Northwest. One of their state-of-the-art facilities is located in Conway, Washington. “The Pacific Northwest Trip Leader” one week course is designed for those who don’t have a lot of time or a huge budget but are motivated to learn the ABCs of leading groups in the backcountry.
My final pick is similar to NOLS with more in-depth approach to wilderness survival, ethnobotany, wildlife tracking, permaculture, and outdoor leadership. The Alderleaf Wilderness Certification Program prepares students to readily apply nature skills in environmental conservation, outdoor education, sustainable living, and beyond. With today’s economy we all pretty soon will have to go back to our roots -learn how to build natural shelters, purify water, create friction fire, find wild food, and master a variety of wilderness crafts; develop the ability to accurately read tracks and signs made by mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and insects; learn how to properly identify, gather, and prepare wild plants for meals, medicines, and tools. Tell me it’s not practical? And skills like these will serve you for a long time. But I am sure that is not all we have. There have to be crazier and more extreme adventures for man.
After my post on target shooting, I got a request to organize a “bachelor” party: booze, guns and camping. Isn’t it the idea of “mancations”? What would your ultimate “Man Adventures” be? http://www.adventures-wa.com

Part of the "Playing with a Borrowed D40" series.
Part of the "Wherever there’s smoke, you can’t see a bloody thing" mini-series.
Compare against the Kodachrome view shot moments before, when it was still visible to the naked eye.
With the naked eye, the sun by this point was literally invisible due to particulates blocking sunlight wavelengths in the visible spectrum. This image is literally of a near-infrared sun, the bottom here cut-off by the obscured Olympic Range. Sure, a real Martian sunset makes a blue orb. Creative licence, okay?

Edited Messenger image – one of the last that will be returned before its crash into Mercury. Messenger’s orbit around Mercury has been as low as a few hundred meters above the surface.
Date acquired: April 29, 2015
Image Mission Elapsed Time (MET): 72595737
Image ID: 8414772
Instrument: Narrow Angle Camera (NAC) of the Mercury Dual Imaging System (MDIS)
Center Latitude: 69.46°
Center Longitude: 229.49° E
Resolution: 1.7 meters/pixel
Scale: The largest crater in this image has a diameter of 330 meters (0.2 miles)
Of Interest: This image, acquired yesterday, is one of MESSENGER’s last. Today, the spacecraft will complete its highly successful orbital mission and impact the surface of Mercury. View this image for details of MESSENGER’s impact location. Impact is expected at 19:26:02 UTC (3:26:02 pm EDT) but will occur out of sight and communication with the Earth. The MESSENGER team will try to establish communications with the spacecraft when its orbit would allow it to be visible from Earth. The inability to establish communications between MESSENGER and the scheduled Earth-based tracking antenna will provide the first confirmation that the spacecraft has impacted the surface. After about 30 minutes following the predicted Mercury impact time, the team plans to announce whether MESSENGER’s orbital mission has come to an end.
The MESSENGER spacecraft is the first ever to orbit the planet Mercury, and the spacecraft’s seven scientific instruments and radio science investigation are unraveling the history and evolution of the Solar System’s innermost planet. In the mission’s more than four years of orbital operations, MESSENGER has acquired over 270,000 images and extensive other data sets. View highlights of the mission in this image highlights collection. MESSENGER’s highly successful orbital mission is about to come to an end, as the spacecraft runs out of propellant and the force of solar gravity causes it to impact the surface of Mercury today, April 30, 2015.

Justice for All March – Dec. 13, 2014
When you are looking at radio control helicopters, you will quickly find that they are not a generalized item. Instead, these items come in a variety of styles and sizes and can even range in the type of energy that is used to assist them in flying. What you will want to consider is that each of these items can have their own unique use to you.
Perhaps the best choice you have is the electric models. You will find that these are the ones that most people will use because they are user friendly and they will give you the chance to learn the basics of RC toys. Using a simple set of internal mechanisms, you will operate them with your remote and they tend to be very responsive. For a power source, these items will typically have a rechargeable battery that you will be able to remove from them.
Inside of the remote and the radio control helicopters, you will find two different transmitters. These transmitters will give you the chance to adjust the way that your helicopter flies and can be either a simple internal system or a more complex one on larger, more expensive units. Many RC toys have a variety of options attached to them.
These radio control helicopters will come with some different axel options on them. For example, you can have a coaxial helicopter as it will have a single rotor that has been placed on the central axis. In some cases, there may be a secondary rotor on the tail, although it typically isn’t needed.
RC toys that use a fixed pitch radio control in turn don’t have a collective servo. This means that you cannot adjust their rotor. But since they operate on fewer channels, many beginners will find that they work out well. Just note that those who are looking to have shows with their helicopters won’t be able to do many of the acrobatics that some of the more advanced models will allow them.
While you are looking over your options, you will also notice that there is a variety of choices you have, just keep in mind that these units will use a variety of controls. You may have a remote control that uses transmitters to increase speed and height while a simple unit may do nothing more than help you steer your helicopter from left to right.
That will be important to keep in mind, because there are so many different choices that radio control helicopters will provide you. Before you continue through the process, sit down and consider what you want to be able to do with your RC toys. From that point, you will be able to not only locate the perfect choice for your needs, but you will also be able to make the most of your experience as well. Just be sure that you pay close attention to quality and durability when you select any unit as this can vary as much as the price of the unit can.
Welcome to Elite RC Helicopter, inside you will discover an amazing selection of low priced and excellent quality
radio control helicopters.
Radio imaging refers to the act of branding a radio station, and it is widely practiced by radio stations around the world. It makes it easier for radio listeners to identify with a radio station, and it helps the radio station achieve better positioning in the industry. It defines the concept of the radio station, and the kind of audience it is trying to reach out to.Radio imaging enables a radio station to present itself as a unique product within a radio network.
Before a radio station is set up, its owner has to decide the genre, theme, style, and mood of the station, as part of consumer packaging. The genre of the station can be anything ranging from sports to music. The type of niche created will define the kind of sports or music the radio station covers.A theme has to be created to make the station more identifiable to its audience because there may be other radio stations dealing with the same kind of genre.
It is important that the theme appeals to the target audience. With music stations, it could be “feel good music” or “soothing tunes”, and it should be accompanied by a tagline. The tagline enables listeners to judge whether a station will meet their listening needs. Also, a mood has to be created for the station, and this will reveal whether a station is funny or serious, laid back or intense, or comforting or confrontational. As part of radio imaging, most radio stations include signature filler pieces between programs, commercials, songs, and commentaries, usually lasting no more than 20 seconds. The type of filler pieces commonly used often include: intros, jingles, promos, liners, stingers, sweepers, and bumpers. These fillers create smoother transitions during broadcasting as well as enhance the image of the radio station.
To make radio imaging more successful, a radio station should employ people who possess exceptional voice talent. A distinct and captivating voice can immediately contribute to the unique personality of a station and listeners will become more attached to the voice as time goes by. Skilled voice over talent will give the appropriate tone and energy to create the right mood for the radio show, capturing the listeners interest. In fact, many radio listeners remain loyal to certain stations because they are regular listeners of a particular program hosted by a talented presenter. It’s for that reason that many top rated radio stations pay huge sums to get well known voices to work for them.Radio imaging is an important part of a radio station’s marketing efforts; it contributes greatly to its survival and success in the competitive radio industry. All the leading radio stations in the world have very elaborate strategies for radio imaging and even lesser-known stations are aware of the effectiveness of this great marketing tool.
