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.
