This topic was inspired by Prophecy's Life Straw thread.

As many of you know, I like to share my stories. It seems I have a story to tell every time a topic comes up. I have done a lot of things in my life - maybe not as grandeur as some of you may think but nevertheless, I have done and gone through a lot in my life.

This is the official adventure thread in which you can post all of your adventures. Don't let the word adventure mislead you to believe your story has to deal with the outdoors. It can be about anything which you have gone through.

Adventure 1 - Dining like kings
When I was five, my older brother (8 yrs old) and I would venture away from home. In my memory, I could have sworn we went as far as 2 miles away from home sometimes.

One day as we went on one of our little excursions, we found ourselves in the back of a Savemart. I remember my brother saying, "Let's find something to eat."

I was like, "Huh?"

I followed him and we climbed into one of the dumpsters. I had no idea what we were doing in there in the first place. My brother starts digging through the trash to look for overdue packages of food. He rips open a pack of some danish bread and starts feasting on it like a hyena. He hands me one and I start chowing down the sweet bread. We sat there and dined like kings. I must have had at least 3 of those sweet breads.

We heard the sound of big trucks making their way to the back of the supermarket but that wasn't going to stop us from having our fill. Moments later the dumpster started to move as it was being lifted by the garbage truck. We scrambled as fast as we could and climbed out.

It is only now that I think the garbage man must have seen us and put the dumpster back down. Nowadays when I see a garbage truck do its thing - it picks up the dumpster quite fast and I don't think, even as quick and nimble as my brother and I were, we could not have possibly climbed out fast enough.

When Ive had a drink I like going off on little adventures, here are my favourite wonderings.

I went to Magaluf in Spain on a Stag Do, I was drunk, it was the end of the night and I decided I had had enough and started heading home. I knew the rough direction of my hotel and I knew it was by the beach, so I decided to walk along the beach. I was walking along and I came to a bit where the tide was in, I had 2 options, go back or scramble up a quite steep embankment. I hated the thought of going back so started up the embankment. It was at about a 45 degree angle, so I had to scramble up on all 4's. I remember looking down and all I could see was the waves crashing against the rock, Im pretty sure if I would have fell then I would have died. I got to the top and there was a barbwire fence surrounding the hotel. So I decided I needed to climb over the fence. I took off my jeans (which were to tight for climbing) and scrambled over this fence. I eventually found my way back to the hotel.

Other adventures include walking through a river in Ireland and walking through a field with cows on the way back after a few drinks.

Keeping strictly to adventure let me know what you want first

Going tobaggaging and taking the closed track
Kayaking down the wrong river
When I went naked on stage - might count as adventure...
When me and my friend were involved in an emergency landing
Getting lost in the red light district

I was the kid who at 6 years old disappeared within 5 minutes of being on a beach with the family and 4 hours later was found 2kms away on my own happy as larry so my parents have more stories that I don't even know about...

I had this talk a few times with my brothers and friends. Back in our days, we were able to walk to school, played until the sun went down, rode our bikes everywhere etc. Kids nowadays just don't have the same freedom of the open road as we did when we were kids. There are so many dangers out there nowadays. I won't let my kids play in the front lawn or ride their bikes by themselves. The atmosphere is just not the same anymore...and besides - these kids nowadays are into video games, facebook, texting, television etc. Most of them do not have that desire to explore the outdoors which is why the obesity rate is on the drastic incline here in America. Joe Schmuck would rather play world of warcraft than ride his bike or learn new tricks on the skateboard. Times have changed and that's too bad.

I agree with you on some of this, but I don't think it's all that much worse than when we were kids out there. I think we just hear about it more often. The same internet that keeps the kids tied to it also gives us every crazy news story from every corner of the globe. Everything is so much more sensationalized now that we are almost conditioned to worry more. Toss in the fact that becoming an old fart gives us the "Back in my day..." attitude, and it can really easily seem a lot worse than when we were kids. There are certainly new dangers now, but we don't have to deal with the dangers of kids playing near livestock, eating lead paint chips(well almost never in this day and age), or falling in wells like they had to years ago.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little more worried with my nieces and nephews wanting to play outside alone than I was when I was younger, but worrying comes with the territory once your balls start to hang a bit lower than before due to age and they've already completed their main task in life and you've had kids.

when i was 18, me & 3 of my buddies were on vacation & visiting some girls at The Hilton in SanDestin, FL. we got loud, got kicked out & had to leave. But the manager told the security guy at the gate to call the police, so we couldnt drive, bc we were underage & drunk.
So we had the bright idea to walk down the beach to our hotel, which was in Destin, FL, a good 10-12 miles away. Not only did we walk the beach for 8-9 hours, but we walked the shoreline, which zig-zags, & probably added another half mile or worse to our journey.
We got to our hotel at 8 or 9am & went straight to the complimentary breakfast & had a feast. Woke up that afternoon to the girls knocking on our door. They were now staying in the Super 8 motel across the street from us bc they had been told that morning that they had to leave.
The worst part about that walk was halfway through, my friend says, "Hey, why dont we just call a cab?"
I was so drunk & so mad we didnt think about it earlier that i replied, "Fuck you. We've already made it this far. We're not stopping now. We're not quitters."
He never let me live that down.

Not quite an Adventure but its something I went through.


Once working room service in a hotel, I brought my last order of the day up to a kid and his mom. Put the tray on the bed, and the lady was very specific where I put the tray and how she signed the bill. This was Xmas eve and had my parents flying in that night. That night I got a call from the hotel security saying did I recall this lady because she is saying she is missing $35,000 worth of jewelry from her room. I told the guy exactly what happened etc.

Next day I went to work and she had called the Miami PD, they sent 2 detectives and 2 other officers to the hotel. The first female whore Detective brings me in a back sales office and says this lady was accusing me of stealing her shit. I tell the Detective exactly what happened, from where the kid was standing, to where I set the tray, how long I was in the room etc. She flat out tells me she does not believe my story.

She leaves to go talk to the mom and kid, and a male Detective comes in playing bad cop. He says right off the bat " Im going to tell you 3 certain things that will happen. 1.), you will tell me the exact truth, 2.) if you are lying, you will go to jail, 3.) if you go to jail someone is going to stick his dick up your ass and make you his bitch.

Now im 22 years old at the time and freaking out. So I tell him the same exact shit I told the first Detective, and the hotel security. He sits there for a few and says he believes most of my story but not all, which just pisses me off. He leaves and comes back 10 min later and says im free to go. Apparently this ladies story changed 4 different times, from where I was standing, to where I set the tray and where she was etc.

I found out a few weeks later this mom and kid pulled the same shit at a different hotel, and were con artists from Canada.

My good friend Shawn reminded me of an incident I encountered when I was in the military.

My permanent command is on board the U.S.S. Lincoln - home port Everett, Washington. Every year to two years, we go on deployment to the gulf. And every time after deployment, we go to shipyard in Bangor, Washington for maintenance and repairs. However, 20 sailors from my division were chosen to do overhaul on major equipments in Everett - and since I was technician of the month not too long ago, I was chosen.

While stationed in Everett, I received my own room. Had I not been chosen, I would have continued to sleep on my bunk bed with 50 other swinging dicks in one living space....and trust me, by the time deployment is done, you really don't want to see these swinging dicks anymore. 9 months out to sea sort of does that to you.

So anyway, I received my own room. Things were going great.

A few months go by and more sailors started checking in to our barracks. A small ship had pulled in and now they have to make room to accommodate a handful of sailors. So my buddy opted to be my roommate before he or I get stuck with a complete stranger.

After these new faces moved in to our barracks, my buddy Oldie and I managed to make a new friend. I can't remember his name anymore but we'll call him Joe Schmuck. Joe was born to be a sailor. He hated working. He loved women. But what made him the perfect sailor was the fact he loved to drink. If you have those qualities, then you belong in the navy.

Anyway, Joe loved drinking so much that you can smell alcohol on him everyday. But like a good drinker, Joe needed companions to drink with him and so he bribed us to be his friend by sharing his tall bottle of vodka and some redbull.

He knocked on our door one day and when we opened it, Joe smiled and said, "Hey what's up? You guys wanna drink with me?"

My buddy is a hardcore drinker too but compared to Joe, he was a lightweight. Nevertheless, my buddy Oldie said, "Oh hell yeah! Come on in, bro!"

Joe wobbles his way in with a bottle of vodka in one hand and the redbulls in the other. Apparently he's already drunk and feeling good. Maybe too good.

So we started drinking. I sipped while they drank and drank and drank.

The reason I paced myself during this drinking session is because I never like to get drunk with people I hardly know. Joe seemed like swell guy but someone had to stay sober and I volunteered myself just like I volunteered to join the navy even-though the navy stands for Never Again Volunteer Yourself. And besides, we're drinking inside the barracks and it wouldn't take long before our neighbors complain about the noise.

So anyway, Joe starts talking about women and he finds out my buddy Oldie is married. And Joe goes on to ask Oldie if Oldie worries about his wife cheating on him when he's on deployment.

Oldie had just gotten married when he went home on leave which was just before the start of our last deployment. He could have brought her to Everett, WA after our deployment but he was on his way out of the navy within the next few months - so there was no point in moving her here for such a short time only to move back right away.

So Oldie and Joe drank some more but Joe kept nagging about Oldie's wife and so on. Joe seemed like a happy drunk but a very stupid happy drunk. He just wouldn't quit about Oldie's wife and kept asking What if, what if she had cheated on him. What if she is pregnant with another man's baby and so on.

Apparently Joe Schmuck asked one question too many and next thing I knew - they were wrestling. Joe had Oldie in a headlock but because I had Mazzagatti instincts, I moved in right away to call the fight. I separated them and calmed them down. I looked at Oldie and I knew the fight was not over. He was not happy about being head locked and I knew another punch was going to be thrown sooner or later. I did what I thought was the best course of action and pretended to be all upset at Joe - with the intention of kicking him out of our room.

Well, it worked to some degree. I kicked him out and he was happy to oblige but the minute he got out into the hallway - Oldie pushed right through me and threw a straight right - landing right on the kisser. Joe Schmuck is down on his knees - oblivious to what just happened. Oldie is still upset that Schmuck got the better of him earlier and delivers a vindictive knee to the jaw of Schmuck. Schmuck, amazingly is down on the canvass but still very conscious. If a bottle of vodka couldn't knock out Schmuck, do you really think a knee from hell would have done it? No chance. Schmuck finally realizes he's in a fight. He crawls to his knees and eats a few more punches from Oldie. Schmuck bears down, head first, and starts swinging. Oldie back pedals and keeps landing punches after punches but the alcohol machine just keeps coming.

At this point, I really did not know what to do. I just stood there and watched as the fight unfolded. I followed them and finally when Schmuck fell to the ground, I yelled at Oldie to get his ass over to where I was.

We quickly came to our room and Oldie washed up right away. We planned our alibi and we agreed never to cave no matter what. I was fine with the alibi because I really had nothing to do with it.

So we watched tv as we waited because we knew the MPs (military security) would be knocking on our door sooner or later.

Sure enough, an hour later an MP knocks on our door. He asked us if we knew anything about a fight which took place on our floor. Oldie says, "Nah, I didn't see or hear anything. Did you see or hear anything, Fu?"

I shook my head and put on a dumb look and said, "Nah, I didn't see or hear anything either."

The MP left only to come back 30 minutes later but this time with 2 other MPs. He said we were the prime suspects of an assault on a sailor and that we were going to be taken in for interrogation.

The bastards handcuffed us and walked us over to the precinct. It was about 9:30 PM when we arrived.

I was interrogated right away. Some second class idiot MP starts asking me questions.

"I'm going to make this easy for you. If you confess to assaulting Mr. Schmuck, maybe we can lessen the charges. But you if lie to me, we're going to nail you with everything we have on you. Did you have a fight with Mr. Schmuck?

"No," I said.

"Mr. Schmuck is pretty beat up. Do you know karate or something?"

I smiled and said, "No."

"Look. You're looking at a reduction in rate (that means demoted) and you're looking at 45 days of restriction also. You might get less if you cooperate."

"Listen. If I was to fight Schmuck, he would be in intensive care right now - but I didn't fight him."

"We got witnesses that saw you beat up Mr. Schmuck."

I chuckled and said, "Really?"

"If you want to play games, that's fine but Mr. Schmuck has identified you as the perpetrator. Whether you confess to the assault or not, you're going to captain's mast (naval military punishment )...and if you wanna play hard ball, we can turn you over to the police."

"Whatever. I didn't do it."

Anyway, this goes on and on with breaks in between and finally around 4:00 AM, the MPs let Oldie into my interrogation room to explain the situation.

Apparently, they're letting Oldie off the hook. He convinced them that it was Schmuck who provoked the confrontation. Thank goodness for dumb military cops. Had we been turned over to civilian police, Oldie would have definitely been charged for assault and I may have received some sort of legal punishment as well. Phew.
