I'm just curious on this topic, because sometimes life seems to get mundane. I live in a city that in general, really doesn't have much to do. Granted it is very friendly to hobbies, but sometimes just going out shooting at targets, or riding atv's out in the wilderness, where i've really already been to before, doesn't fill the sense of adventure i'm really looking for(Not to complain, I'm really happy to be blessed with such opportunities.)
I guess I watch too many shows, but people's lives in tv shows, granted they are more dramatic, and often have very sad moments, seem to follow a life of adventure where they solve some type of mystery, or uncover some new amazing thing.
Seems like in the world of reality, the mystery solving is left up to the crime labs, or the pre-determined endings of books, shows, and video games. Along with that, is the fact that the whole planet has been explored and charted, unless you are a highly educated, and luckily picked scientist who gets to explore the unknown areas of our still mysterious ocean bottom, and I suppose Jungle life.
Point being, how do you get the thrill of actual adventure and mystery, without having the actual resources to go where no man really has been before, or given an answer too?
