The SO Adventure Club Begins

The SO Adventure Club

I’ve decided to start an adventure club which, at present, not even I am a fully fledged member of. Stranger things have happened. There are a number of outdoor activities, of various levels of ability, that I want to tick off my bucket list so to keep track of them all and push myself into booking the next I thought I’d write them down. Whilst writing down this ‘bucket list’ I decided that I didn’t know and couldn’t possibly know all the awesome outdoor activities in the UK and Ireland and that the only people who could help me figure this out were other adventurers, that’s you btw. So not only do I need your suggestions for adventures you think are worth the sweat but I also want to know which of these you have already completed. Thus, my bucket list has transformed into an adventure club. Nifty I know. So leave a comment or send me an email with your suggestions and how many you’ve ticked off, I am all ears and hiking boots.

In no particular order, the adventures:

  1. Seven Sisters Trail
  2. Caving In The Devil’s Arse
  3. London Thames Path – Hampton Court To Greenwich
  4. Hike Scafell Pike
  5. Canoe Across Pontcysylite Aqueduct
  6. Surfing In Newquay
  7. Snowboarding In Scottland
  8. Hike Ben Nevis
  9. Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge
  10. Hike Snowdonia
  11. Coast to Coast Walk
  12. Climbing Stanage Edge
  13. Abseil Into A Cave…somewhere.
  14. Wild Camping Galloway National Park (after a tour of the Galloway Astronomy Centre)
  15. Cycle In The Sheeffry Hills
  16. SUP The Oxford Cambridge Boat Race Route
  17. Walk Land’s End To Lizards Point
  18. Snorkel With Basking Sharks in Oban
  19. Fossil Hunting Jurassic Coast
  20. SUP On Ullswater Lake
  21. Wild Swimming The Fairy Pools At Glen Brittle
  22. Wakeboarding In Pembrokeshire Wake Park
  23. Sail Around The Isle of White (not on race day)

Bonus Point: Visit the highest pubs in England (Tan Hill Inn), Scotland (Wanlockhead Inn), Wales (Sportsman’s Arm) and Ireland (Top of Coom & Ponderosa).

Head over to the SO Adventure Club page to see how I’m getting on and view the updated list.

As a final thought, I don’t feel like putting myself under any time restrictions or demanding that I do all these on my own so I won’t. I might have mentioned I’m an Amateur Adventurer but maybe make that Leisurely Amateur Adventurer. Lastly, an after final thought, as I know your abilities as well as you know my shoe size I think it’s fair for me to suggest that if you are considering attempting these adventures that you conduct your own research before setting off to ensure you feel comfortable and capable. It’s always good to recognise and remember that our abilities are all different. There is no reason to fear, however, as lucky for us knowledge is easily shared allowing us to build our skills so that we can work with ourselves in order to achieve our goals. Have fun explorer and tag #soadventureclub on the old Instagram so I can give you a virtual high five!
