Adventure Log

I have decided to try to have a weekly adventure and to chronicle my adventures in this blog.  There may even be pictures if I remember to grab my camera.  This week, I did not remember to grab my camera.  But that's ok.  My adventure was sort of a non-adventure except for the drive to my designated adventure spot and home.

I decided to go to a forest preserve this week to try to have an adventure.  On my way there, an enormous spider the size of my thumbnail tried to kill me by running me off the road.  I ended up pulling over in time not to have an accident and bolstered my courage to thwart my little enemy.  He did not survive.

The particular forest preserve I chose was a little disappointing.  I had the trails all to myself mostly, but the influx of people had driven a lot of the wildlife away.  I walked along side of a squirrel for a while and I happened to see a few birds, but otherwise the entire experience was relatively uneventful.  I did manage to detox myself from being in populated areas, so that was good, but I didn't have much in the way of 'adventure' happen while I was there.  Later on, when I was a block away from my house, I did have a car turn into my line and almost hit me head on, followed by a bicycalist almost crashing into my car when I slammed to a halt to not get hit head on.  Exciting!

This was kind of a lame adventure.  I shall have to plan my adventures to be less lame in the future!  But was the first weekly adventure.  Wooooooo!

EDIT:  I worked it out.  If I have just one adventure a week for a year, that's 52 adventures.  I think I can do this!
