I am sure most of you had watched and been following extreme challenges such as Fear Factor, Amazing Race or even the fun wipeout. Those are extreme adventures and humans from time to time do take up such extreme challenge to test his or her limit.
What is considered extreme?
Oxford dictionaries define ex·treme (ikˈstrēm/) as an adjective means “reaching a high or the highest degree; very great”.
So, this posting is about the above meaning.
Extreme sports? Extreme challenge? Extreme Adventure? Those are some activities that pose some challenge to one’s adrenalin and it test the limit of the participant physically and mentally.
Throughout my life I had been involve in some extreme activities. During my school days I took the challenge of abseiling and rapelling. It really test the my acrophobia limit. Acrophobia is an extreme or irrational fear of heights. So for someone who has fear of height will not be able experience the fun of rappelling. I taste my first rapelling at the age of 14 when I was with my scout troop. After that first trial, I do not hesitate any opportunity to rappel whenever there is a challenge.
My extreme adventure does not stop there. When there was an invitation for bloggers to join in the Bloggers Paintball Challenge in 2008, I submitted my application and join other bloggers for the challenge. Unexpected, my make shift team emerge as 1st Runners Up and that earn us a ticket to the National Paintball League in Division 4. Paintball is really a challenge physically and mentally.
The last time I was involve in extreme activity was the flying fox at Sunway Lagoon which is the longest in Malaysia but that was not challenging enough because of the water below instead of flying above the trees at Dusun Eco Resort in Bentong, Pahang. during my visit to Sunway Lagoon, I had the the experience of driving the All Terrain Vehicle (ATV).
