(long) Weekend Opinions Contest – Adventure
Closed

Hello Influencers,

On my commute to work this morning I saw this lady reading a self help book, and on the cover, in bright yellow serif letters I noticed "when was the last time you did something for the first time?". 

Now that really struck a chord with me. I really started asking myself the same thing, and to my annoyance I could not come up with an answer to it. It seems so much time passed since my last proper adventure. Which made me want to ask you, when did you go on your last adventure, what did you do? What was adventurous about it? 

Write a comment detailing the adventure and when was the last time you did something for the first time to win points. 

Participate in this weekend’s Opinions Contest and get the chance to earn up to 5,500 points.

Participating is super easy, additionally it gives you a guaranteed 500 points, plus, the three most interesting opinions (based on our site moderators’ opinions) will get 5,000 points.

*Promotion Rules:Open to US and Canada only. Limit one opinion created per person. Members must post an opinion on the designated Toluna Topic for their country, and can win 500 points. Opinions must be posted by 01:00AM EST on Monday, November  10th to be counted.  Bonus points will be awarded to winners by 5PM EST, on Wednesday November 23rd, 2017, and will be uploaded to users’ accounts via external crediting. Opinions must not contain any language or image that is obscene, insulting, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, libelous, untrue, misleading or invasive of someone else’s privacy. Toluna reserves the right to review all posts for content, and withhold bonus points from any user violating the rules mentioned above. Violation of these rules, and/or the Toluna Member Code of Conduct may result in the closure of your Toluna account.

My latest adventure is to do something every week that we have not done for years. So far we have started swimming in a pool, are going to the movies, and next we are looking at a sale for 50-60 local vendors for the holiday season. The last time I did something for the first time to win points was this week! Winning points is the something new each week deal that is turning out to be a lot of fun.

The last time I did something for the first time was in college where I went on a short beach vacation randomly in the middle of the semester. It was very relaxing during final times and I was able to eat at some new places and do a bit of sight seeing before I needed to return to campus.

I've never been the "adventurous" type. I've always kinda liked to play it safe, and I've always been a "good girl". A couple of months ago, my boyfriend and I were going through a bit of a rocky moment in our relationship, and I phoned my brother and said, "let's do something a little nuts right now!" It was Saturday night, 10PM. Well, that 'little something nuts' involved us driving down to Plattsburgh to eat at Applebee's, and shop at a 24-hour Walmart, hahaha. We finished it off with ice cream from McDonald's at 2AM, and then we drove back home. It was probably one of the silliest things I've done, but also just really, really fun and freeing -- because I'm usually never the type to do something off the cuff like that; especially crossing the border into another country for just a few hours at night! It was a lot of fun and pretty "adventurous" for me :)

In the past 6 years I have had a few first adventures,this is about rafting down the gorgeous Sulphur Canyon,and Smokey River,near Grande Cache,Alberta. The excursion was planed by my son Jim,for family and friends.The afternoon started with a hike down a steep bank to the river.I was a bit scared that my two grandchildren who were 9 and 10 would slip and roll down the bank,but there were no mishaps and we all made it safely to the river.Than we got going on the river.Now and than a wave would splash into the raft,or the current would carry us towards the rocky cliff.Will always have fond memories of that adventure.

Isn't every day an adventure after you have almost died?For me It seems so everyday seems brand new and fresh and is from going for gasoline to going for groceries?Some of the real big adventures are just going to the mall to walking around have coffee and look at things!
All is good and remember the grass is always greener on the top side.

My most recent adventure was a 35th anniversary class reunion. I had chosen to miss all the previous ones because there were more people I did not want to see and those I did want to see I could see individually.
This time, I flipped a coin, it came up heads and I went. I was surprised. Those I really would have avoided I still would avoid, some who I might have avoided I still might avoid but others had shown remarkable growth. The ones I would like to see, I still would like to see. Next big one is the 50th. Still debating that one.

I’ve had many adventures, but the one that I remember most is the time a dear friend of mine, who was writing a historical novel, convinced me to take a trip to Penetanguishene, ON. She wanted to re-enact the life of a 19th century sailor in the Royal Navy, and the local historical society had a re-enactment program for the public. I suspect she asked me, because I had a car and could drive. So one Sunday, we drove to Penetang to do our duty as a member of the crew of the HMS Badger, a 36-foot replica of an 1812 British Gunboat. Penetang was the site of the Royal Navy shipyards, and after Quebec City, the second oldest town in Canada (Upper/Lower). Well, we didn't get to fire the cannon, handling the 7-sail rigging was a challenge, and when the wind died down, we all had to grab an oar and row into the harbor. There and then, I knew life as a gang-pressed sailor in his majesty’s Royal Navy was not for me. The friendship did survive.
