Behold The Space Junk!

Wow, it’s getting crowded out in space! This is an actual picture of the space stuff that orbits the earth on a daily basis…why not go out here to see it for yourself?

Time For Some Extreme Travel!

If you’ve got a taste for something a bit more “adventurous”, check out some of these extreme options!

Deep-Sea-Exploration

I found a few of these on the great website “Thecoolist”…

Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea!

Deep-Sea-Exploration

A science travel organization called Deep Ocean Expeditions has made Mir Submersibles and Deep Rover submarines available to the traveling public for rare, firsthand views of the frontier below.

underwater exploration

In 2012, a few lucky (and wealthy) passengers will be taken 12,500 feet into the North Atlantic to see the wreckage of the famed Titanic. Only a handful of craft can sustain human life at such depths, the same craft that carried filmmakers to the sea floor to film James Cameron’s Titanic. How cool does that sound? You’ll even get to see some friends like this:

One more from The Coolist:


Spe-LUNK!

Mammoth-Cave spelunking

Here’s what they had to say about this “middle earth” adventure: “The Mammoth Cave National Park in central Kentucky is the longest cave system in the world, a fascinating underground world open to traveling explorers. This Unesco World Heritage Site may be a common tourist trap, but its length is open to fearless adventurers who wish to go beyond the beaten path.

Mammoth-Cave splunking

The Wild Cave Tour at Mammoth Cave takes a small group of spelunkers deep into the cave through twists, turns and tiny spaces that would inspire terror in your average tourist. If you book your own exploration, a private guide will show you the world below, exploring some of Mammoth Cave’s 365 miles of underground tunnels. If the idea of squeezing through 9-inch by 24-inch openings of deep limestone caverns excites you, you’ll be right at home in Mammoth Cave.”


Behold “Middle Earth!”

Sherman’s March!

Thanks to Sherman’s Travel, I found a couple more cool, extreme things to try:

In Space, No One Can Hear You Scream!

outer space travel

The 10-day space journey offered by Virginia-based Space Adventures (www.spaceadventures.com) blasts you from a launch pad in Kazakhstan into the actual orbit of the Earth, where gravity itself becomes obsolete as you circle the globe every 90 minutes – imagine how much fun it would be to float in outer space!

Virgin Galactic!

Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic (www.virgingalactic.com) launched its first staffed flights in 2010: Paying passengers will have to wait till at least 2012 to hop aboard suborbital flights – and it will set you back $200,000.

Low-Adrenaline Alternative: Zero-gravity thrills at an even less-astronomical price ($4,950) are available in Las Vegas or in Cape Canaveral and Titusville, both in Florida, through Zero G (www.gozerog.com)

So many opportunities to be an Astronaut!

Heli-Ski!

helicopter skiing

If you’re a top-notch skier who likes a BIG adrenalin rush, get off the trails and take to the skies by boarding a chopper and going heli-skiing, a sport that makes the trek up the mountain as exciting as the run down.

helicopter skiing

According to Sherman’s March: “Lured by the promise of untouched slopes, wilderness solitude, and challenging terrain, those who dare to get airborne access otherwise inaccessible peaks.

heli-skiing

Valdez Heli-Camps (www.valdezhelicamps.com) operates tours to the Chugach Mountains in Alaska; serious extremists book the four- or six-day Sound to Summit package that tackles Chugach’s 13,000-foot peak and offers accommodations on a ship (complete with heliport) anchored in the Prince William Sound.”
