Hey girls.

You see, I came upon some work which is leaving me with quite a bit of money.

If you were an adventurous girl, which idea would sound coolest for the fun part of valentines day.


Paint ball.(150$)
Seaside hike.(0$)
Tandem Skydiving.(200$)
Go karts.(40$)
Mini Golf.(not sure but they's ghey)
Great America(100$)
Ocean Kayaking but this is a bit of a pain to schedule.
If there's snow still in central Cali I'd LOVE to go there. And I know she would too.

The only place that is a set price is Great America and skydiving. The other ones go up depending on length, IE more money for paintballs, etc.

Gliding.

Not hang gliding.

Relatively safe (safer than skydiving), and if you're lucky, the pilot will ask you if you'd like to do some aerobatics.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

One small drawback, sailplanes are only two seat (most are actually single).

However soaring is vastly more civilized than jumping out of a plane and much cheeper than an hot air balloon ride.

Oh, and it's very safe.

Hmmm.

Every time I've gone I've been with a pilot and crammed in with a friend. Are you saying that there was one too many passengers ?

Anyway, soaring is a lot of fun, and I've enjoyed the experience every time I've gone.

Quite a bit of money, eh? You should spec and order a matching set of bikes from Ahearne or Pereira. How romantic!

Were you both in the same back seat? If y'all were sharing a single harness, then yes. If they were two harness in the back then that's a plane modified for giving rides (and safe the FAA has to check it out first). There is only one place in GA that I know of that offers rides to the public and they have a regular tandem.

If she's truly adventurous, she will enjoy virtually any of the activities you've listed.

Although I wouldn't really enjoy the demolition derby (sorry Mr. Smashy !). That would be too noisy for me. I should point out that I have been to a demolition derby...and my hearing was adversely affected for a couple of days .

Hm...seaside hike sounds nice, and hey, it's free! Add a picnic to that and you'll be all set. Next to that, skydiving.

Phew!

Yes, I've been in proper tandems, then.

A couple of times in California, and once in Hawaii.

Y'all know you have a Combine Demolition Derby coming up in Lind this summer.
That's gotta be like watching rabid double wide trailers have at it.

Who said watching, I meant for them both to enter vehicles in a demolition derby.
