Extreme Adventures for Women

Though Amelia Earhart, the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean, disappeared in 1937, her legacy lives on today as strong as ever. In honor of the “Queen of the Air,” we salute all women who have accomplished the extraordinary -- and recommend five comparable adventures you might have on your own.

The only one that looks remotely exciting is dog sledding, and if I went to go do that, I would definitely want a MAN to go with me!!! ;-) Except, I get my own sled with cute doggies!

I'm really down on the media in general and women in particular lately. The media has told women they can have it all: well to do, handsome men, a career, children, a submissive, "understanding" husband...and us men know women believe this. Hey gals, life is tough, money is always short. Those men you like to deride are actually working their butts off...Many, many women expect (rich) Prince Charming, and the media plays this up to the 'enth degree, that you and the potential mates around you feel there is nothing at all to even try for now. Compromise on your potential men ladies...we're trying our best in a world that is trying to marginalize us for our forefathers sins. Men are good...stop trashing us!

 To call these extreme Adventures for women is a real stretch of the imagination The things these  women accomplished are amazingly courageous for men or women.The fact is very few men could even dream of these adventures yet each was accomplished by women, 120 pound women can do anything they decide to do except write their name in the snow wihile urinating. I'm proud of them their determination is astounding. Women nurses in Vietnam stood by and cared for their patients during enemy rocket attacks enemy artillary fire,nothing could cause them to abandon their patients they were awesome and I thank them for my life the only thing a man can do that a woman can't, is scratch his nuts. Never ever under estimate the power of a determined woman.

Just another story to hurt your self esteem. If you don't do this, you are boring. Guess most of us are boring.
