Guys Extreme Adventures in Washington

September 23rd, 2016

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

Want Adventures In Wine? Join a Wine Club

March 7th, 2015

the net is wonderful for a large number of things – maybe not least of which is its propensity to produce information and possibility available to the public. Now, with holiday breaks coming and quickly approaching, there’s another possibility arising – and that, definitely, is to join up with a wine club, or to get a membership in one for someone you care about. Just what better method to begin the festive season or to enjoy exactly what would ordinarily be a typical month of January, than by sampling the best wines that brand new and old worlds have to offer?

A wine club works like this. You can get wines selected for you, by the expert buying group on wine store of your option. Generally you’ll then get a case of wine every quarter, that will be made up of bottles and vintages especially selected by the purchasers whom source wines for the wine merchant all together. The better groups offer significant amounts of flexibility with their normal containers – so you can start off by firmly taking their advice completely, and make use of the bottles you have got liked to share with your future decisions.

A comprehensive collection of tasting records and information packs further enhance the joy associated with wine club, allowing novice wine lovers to master and develop whilst the 12 months goes on. There are lots of exceptional examples of these clubs on the Internet – notably including the exceptional offering through the renowned Colchester Wine Company, which has gone to great pains to tailor a wine lover’s account that brings significant amounts of choice alongside hardly any in the way of commitment. That produces club account the ideal method to start the newest Year, and even to take pleasure from the festive holidays itself toward fullest. Individuals who know they like wine, but aren’t certain how exactly to go about checking out that want to its best extent, can only just benefit from wine club models like the one espoused by The Wine business, that offers a friendly and informative service along side some exemplary choices.

It’s this idea of learning without feeling embarrassed that produces the club experience therefore gratifying. Wine is an excellent thing, but it is additionally a famously involved and complicated obsession. The more you discover out about the material, the greater you understand how small you realize. Before, it was quite difficult to obtain past this feeling of “novice hood” – before the Internet, the only method for the data you’ll want to expand your wine tastes was to seek it from people who can (whether they mean to or perhaps not) emit exactly the same air that an informed elite does – some sort of “if you don’t understand, then chances are you don’t know” feeling that can be extremely discouraging to the novice.

Utilizing a wine club to make the journey to understand what you actually like and everything don’t is an enjoyable, fulfilling and fascinating experience. Enjoyment is always better with knowledge – and knowledge is strictly exactly what the club makes it possible to explore.

A comprehensive collection of tasting records and information packs further increase the joy of this wine club, enabling novice wine enthusiasts to master and grow as the 12 months continues.
