    My husband has said although would love to climb Mt. Everest, go sky diving, and pursue some other dangerous adventures, he missed his opportunity now that he has a family. He has enjoyed non-technical climbing , ultra-marathons, an Ironman triathalon, but has crossed the more dangerous sports off his list. People who are REALLY into some of these activites often say driving your car can be more dangerous, but we do need to drive our cars in our daily lives, we don’t need to climb Mt. Everest. Other people say such pursuits are imperitive to one fulfilling their souls, life ambitions, etc.
