What is Extreme?

[From Latin extr¶mus.]
-- ex·treme“ly adv. -- ex·treme“ness n. 1

I am sure some of you think of bungy cord jumping or
ski diving, or some other activity that is very exciting.
This to me is just a thrill. It is not in my opinion extreme.
Sort of like getting chased by a large dog.
A lot of people probably think of their personal challenges.
That bicycle trip across Amsterdam, or walking
the Inca trail to Machu Picchu. These are fun, and
interesting, and may have required more endurance
than you thought possible. But....
Naaaaw... Just putting one foot in front of the other
and following the person in front of you.
That is not extreme.

I think extreme starts when you cannot find the person
in front of you, or the person behind you. Where no amount
of talk seems to convince others to go with you.
It seem outside their realm of thought, or consideration.

Its a only your dream... Then you do it.

Alone, without the safety net

No of some extreme travel?
