Aloha Friday

It’s Aloha Friday over at An Island Life!

Answer my question and make sure you post one on your blog!

After that, go relax because today is Friday!!

Questionfor you this week is:

What is the most extreme thing / adventure you have ever done?
My answer:

I mentioned in the the eight things meme a week or two ago, but I went on a ziptrek adventure in Whistler, B.C. a few years ago. It was probably one of the most fun things I’ve ever done.


On the roof of the hotel

Trying to tan in the altogether may be the stuff of private dreams. But location is everything, according to Story Jokes. An ardent traveler named Joan spent most of her vacation sunbathing on the roof of her hotel. She wore a swimsuit the first day, but on the second, she decided that no one could see her way up there, and she slipped out of it for an overall tan. She’d hardly started when she heard someone running up the stairs; Joan was lying on her stomach, so she just pulled a towel over her rear.

“Excuse me, miss,” said the flustered hotel manager, out of breath from dashing up the stairs.

“The hotel doesn’t mind you sunbathing on the roof but we would very much appreciate you wearing a bathing suit as you did yesterday.”

“What difference does it make,” Joan asked rather calmly. “No one can see me up here, and besides, I’m covered with a towel.”

“Not exactly,” said the manager. “You’re lying on the dining room skylight.”


A guy on the beach just can’t seem to make it with any of the girls, so he goes over to the lifeguard tower to see if the lifeguard has any advice for him.

“It’s obvious dude,” says the lifeguard, “you’re wearing baggy old swim trunks that make you look like an old man, they’re years outta style. Go get yourself a pair of these spandex Speedos — about two sizes too small — and drop a fist-sized potato down inside ’em. You’ll have all the chicks you want!”

The following weekend, the guy hits the beach in his tight Speedos with the fist-sized potato and… for cryin’ out loud! — it’s worse than before! Everyone on the beach acts disgusted as he walks by, covering their faces, turning away, laughing, looking sick! So the guy goes back to the lifeguard again and asks him:

“What’s wrong now?”

“Jeez!” says the lifeguard, “You gotta put the potato in the FRONT, kid!”



  1. I can’t even think of anything but bungy jumping? Next feat, WILL be sky diving. 🙂

  2. I had it on my blog last year… I did a “Wilderness Weekend” with the kids from youth – it was on fear. I had to set the example & OH GEEZ…. I had to climb up a pole & walk out on a wire with someone facing me – the wires got further & further apart so you had to push on each other… we did another free fall from a 10 story drop… & reminder – all of this – I’m afraid of heights… talk about FEAR… but I did it!!!!

  3. i will have to think on that question… and the potato? eww!!! hahahahaha!

  4. crazy about the potato..eww

  5. Oh my gosh, I am totally lmao. The patato…I’m going to have to pass that one on to Bill.

  6. Love the jokes!

  7. I guess I would have to say White Water rafting. I’ve done it twice and would love to do it again!

  8. Probably going on one of the really scary roof-top roller coasters in Vegas. I avoid “adventure”. 😉

  9. I don’t know what my adventure answer would be… I’m usually too much of a scaredy-cat to go on any big adventures.

    Love the jokes though.. the potato thing is hilarious! I can only imagine that actually happening – I would probably look sickly too!
