    This just in: I’ve set up a link on this page for Flickr. As well as on Twitter.  The silly twitter name is 52Adventures, as is the Flickr username.  Once the year starts I’ll create a flickr account where we can upload our adventure shots!

      -Go to a drive-in movie
      -Shoot a gun
      -Get a motorcycle license
      -Sing karaoke
      -Volunteer for Habitat for Humanity
      -Do an olympic distance triathlon

      I LOVE these adventures.
      They are just the right mix of sweet and spicy.

      To start a thread just write in the top most text box. But, because it looks like you’ll be an active partner with me, I’ll make you a co-author on this page if you like…

    • Anonymous 6:55 pm on December 17, 2009 Permalink

      AND you’re a co-author!

    I thought maybe we would go on an adventure… 

    I’m just so pleased you’ve (I’m looking at you) dropped by mission control here.  You are obviously adventurous.  And lovely.  And so here it is.  Our mission:

    I want this year to be “2010: The Year of 52 Adventures

    In 2007 Disney promoted a campagin: “The Year of 1,000,000 Dreams”. They offered up 1,000,000 incentives, at the cost of the company, to Disney guests. In the end this merely amounted to 900,000 free plastic cups for additional consumption of over-priced soda water, but I can’t shake their intent. Accomplishments. Many of them. To be completed in a designated time. I can do that.

    This is my new years resolution and the point of the writing.
    Here’s what I propose: The Year of 52 Adventures (the reprise)
    The idea is simple. There are 52 weeks in a year. Let’s complete 52 adventures in 2010. And I’d like your help in this effort.
    Now I realize that many of my ideas fade out, but I’ve never fallen back on a resolution, and I write to make this work.
    I’d like you to sign on, as well. What good are adventures if they can’t be shared? So here’s what I’m thinking:
    We adventure like we’d never adventured before. The adventures can be as simple and as frugal as trying Ethiopian food for the first time, and as elaborate as getting a tattoo. These are the things we often keep ourselves from doing. The point is to try things outside of your comfort zone.  And it just feels hopeful, having 52 chances to look forward to.  I would like 2010 to suggest Hope for everyone.

    I’ve designed this blog similiar to a Twitter page so that EVERYONE (I’m still looking at you) can contribute.  So do.  Tell your friends.  Please suggest that they tell theirs, and maybe we can make 2010 something new and exciting and wonderful.

    Thank you for all that you do.  I look forward to hearing from you soon!

      YAY!!! Hope this works!

    • Jen 6:01 pm on December 15, 2009 Permalink

      Being the organizational person I am (some people may call it type-A), I am listing out my 52 adventures and would like ideas from everyone on what they are considering. Probably won’t get another tattoo, but I like the Ethiopian food idea. What else?

    • yearof52adventures 6:29 pm on December 15, 2009 Permalink

      I think that’s a GREAT idea Jen. I, too, am compiling a list – but I am also leaving room for it to be more free form as the weeks progress. I’m also tooling with the option of allowing “America” to “choose my adventures” a la reality television. I’m going to post options each week and allow my peers and strangers alike to dictate which adventure I take. With that in mind, anyone that wants to contribute potential adventures for me, I’ll compile a list and throw those into the multiple choice options. Who’s in???
