It means I’m getting sent on some awesome, crazy, adventurous activity!!!!
But which activity?…
YOU DECIDE FOR ME!!!!!
Yup, leaving my fate in the hands of my readers!
Maybe not the smartest thing, but if you read this blog enough, you will realize that I have tendencies to stray away from doing the ‘smart thing’ quite a bit.
Life is boring when you are always thinking ahead!
At the bottom of this post is a 1 question survey. I have picked 5 things, Cloud9Living offers, which I would like to do most. Read about each thing, then decide what it is you would like to see me do (and write about). You can also click on each photo to go to that adventure’s page on the Cloud9Living website, and read more details about each experience. When you’re done, just choose which thing you want me to do.
I will be going on the winning adventure by Nov 30th (hopefully sooner as schedules allow) and telling you all about it.
It’s like a choose your own adventure book, but this time with real people!
So finally…what are the choices?
I get to ride as a passenger in a 505 horsepower, Corvette Z06. We will do a few laps around the 1.5 mile, 11 turn Las Vegas Motor Speedway, reaching speeds up to 120mph (193 km p/hour). Who doesn’t want to be able to say, “Yea, I’ve been in a Corvette!”
I get to drive, AND RACE, an Aston Martin Vantage S, up to 100mph (160km p/hour) around the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. This James Bond wet dream goes 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds, and boasts a 4.7L V8 engine. Afterwards, I will have to treat myself to a proper Vesper Martini…shaken, not stirred of course.
I will actually learn to fly, and take the controls, of either a Schweizer 300C or a Robinson R22 helicopter! After some ground instruction, I will take to the air (with my FAA certified instructor), and navigate the helicopter on my own!!! You never know when the ability to fly a helicopter may come in handy, especially for a gringa moving to South America!
I will get to do my first ever skydive. Strapped to an expert instructor, I will jump from 2 miles up. During a 50 second free fall, I will reach speeds over 120mph (193 km p/hour) as I plummet to the earth! It takes a total of 5 to 7 minutes to touch back down, during that time, I’ll get some of the greatest view of the Las Vegas valley ever!
During this race I get to man my own dune buggy and chase the ‘dunie’ guide around off-road trails in Vegas’s 15,000 acres of desert terrain. Strapped into my dune buggy, I can go as fast as I want, swerving over dunes, gravel roads, and washed out creek beds. Giving me free will in an off-road race may not be the smartest thing to do, but it will sure be a hell of a lot of fun!
Which of these awesome, adventureous activities do you want to see me do?
