When I grow up, I want to be…

One of the reasons I, like so many others, read outdoor sports magazines is that we think “I could do that given half a chance (and a little bit more skill!)”…but the question is, what or who would your be if given half a chance?

Is there a form of sport or leisure pursuit that you would like to be world-renowned at?


Free Climber? Adventure Runner? Mountain Climber? Downhill Mountain Biker? Intrepid traveler or Global Backpacker? Alpinist? Big Wall Climber? Cross-country Mountain Biker?  Hot air balloon pilot? Ocean Dinghy Sailer?  Skier?  Nordic Walker? Ultra-marathon runner?  Professional Bungee jumper? Haggis Hurler? Snowshoer? Snowkiter? Toe wrestler? Outdoor swimming?  Rowing? Parasailing? Free Running? Paraglider? Hangglider? Bicylcle Polo? White Water Rafter? Kayaker? Ultimate Frisbeer?…the list is actually endless!


The Adventures of Indiana Jones?

Share your thoughts…I for one would love to be a renowned adventurer of some sort – a little like Indiana Jones maybe, or maybe not!  Less of the archaeological accomplishments and more the human-tests I think for me.  It would be something involving a great deal of free world travel to mix-up the terrains, the altitudes, temperatures and wildlife…Europe, Africa, South America, Asia, etc…I don’t think I could pick-out one outdoor passion as such but more a culmination of general adventures and challenges…

Most people who are into outdoor sports have a favourite terrain and climate that’s best for them…

What sort of terrain do you prefer?

  • Wilderness? Jungle? Desert? Mountainous? Urban? Remote? Cosmopolitan?!
  • Warm? Cold? Humid? Dry? Rainy? Snow?
