I'm addicted to adrenalin, Ever since I retired as a Firefighter/Paramedic, I can't seem to get my adrenalin fix, When I hear sirens my blood starts pumping, hell my ringtone on my phone is a siren,
I repel Well not anymore since I got older and disabled I dove with sharks in the open ocean, I was trained as a mixed gas diver doing deep stuff, wreck penetration, cave diving, ice diving, night diving.
Now that I'm no longer doing that stuff I need to find something that a 59 y/o partially disabled old fart can do to get the adrenalin fix I'm so addicted to.
Trips to the range helped but now with the ammo shortage I can't afford to waste any, so I'm stuck with prepping for the next SHTF event.
Any ideas how I can get my adrenalin fix??? :dunno:

Either buy a sport bike or take up skydiving. Either will have you moving faster than nascar within ten seconds.

I just moved to GA and I will be jumping down in DeLand, Florida a lot this summer. Depending on what your partial disability is, exploring the sky is a very viable option. Skydiving can range from "relaxing" to "Oh holy ****" If you got your basics covered, I would have no problems showing you some stuff in the sky that will give you an adrenaline rush so heavy that you will either spend the day shaking or you will vomit. :wavey:

Yeah, I have to go with something like this as well.

If you cant actually(active) "battle danger" (cage fighter, cop, infantry, firefighter, whatever....) You can (passive) "face danger" (skydiving, bunji jumping, sport bikes...)

If you have not been on a modern wiz-bang super happy fun time crotch rocket....it will, it will actually scare you. It is a flat out thrill of the first order. Of course, if you really are a thrill seeker....and if you fear acclimiating....you will a little but it is almost a a given that the bike will be and remain more capable than you, so you will always have just a "little more" to push.

...and make no mistake, they can bite you and it can cost you life and limb.

As far as bikes go I'm a Harley man had 4 of them at one time, just no longer into bikes but if I were to become interested again it would only be a Harley,

Try a race car. They don't even have to be fast to be thrilling. It's about cornering speed and getting it right.

Or going slow with the rush...rock crawling and other hard core off roading.

Streaking in a nursing home?

While wearing only socks on that polished tile floor, and carrying a huge sickle and declaring yourself the Grim Reaper.

Pure adrenaline.

That would work too. Having your Harley crap out in traffic would certainly get the blood pumping, not to mention slipping in the oil spots and busting your ass. :supergrin: Eric

Well, there is nothing like good ole "Man on Man Steel" to whip up my adrenaline!

It's a great sport... Check it out. If it's not in your area, you can get started with 2 steel plate racks!

Try it, yer gonna like it...

Try hitting on married chicks. It's a lot more exciting if you do it right in front of their husbands.

Hog hunting with dogs and a knife is awesome. Granted the dogs do most of the work and take most of the risk. All you got to worry about is if the hog gets loose can i climb a tree or deliver the killing blow correctly with the knife.

+1 At least Harleys have a 0-60 time of........wait.......can they get to 60? :tongueout:

You're missing out if you play the "brand game" and dedicate yourself only to Harley. You said you wanted an adrenalin fix, well 400lbs and 200HP will certainly give you that fix, and no Harley does those numbers (unless it's heavily heavily HEAVILY modified).

Start going to a different drive thru fast food restaraunt every day. Order the combo and ask for something to left off the burger. Check it at the window. If it is wrong, put it in park and tell them you will wait for it to be corrected.

For giggles, go to Wendys first and order the Baconator without cheese. Enjoy. If they start getting that right, order it again, but when you get to the window, ask why the price was not discounted since they left off the (30 cents per slice) cheese. Put it in park and wait for your refunded change.

Go inside any of them and buy gift certificates. Then use them to pay for your meal. IN Burger King, get your whopper without cheese nor onion. Then order onion rings instead of fries.

Go to McD's drive thru and order a $1 sweet tea. Tell them you want 35% sweet and the balance unsweet.

Go to Walmart and only buy koolaid packets. Use the self checkout. Everytime it asks you to please bag the item again, loudly call out all sorts of religious tirates.

Walk around on the streets of D.C. with a "The south will rise again" shirt with huge confederate flag on back. You'll get an adrenaline surge unlike anything you may have yet experienced.

Sign up for your local Search and Rescue organization.
They should be able to accommodate any disability and let You help the others. Good feeling with adrenaline rush at times.

DW, I too, am 59 years old, and have a beaten and battered body from years of not taking care of myself and one too many, "Hey Bubba!!!! C'mere. Hold my beer and watch dish!"

Now, for excitement, just pouring a couple of ounces of Maker's Mark, grabbing a tall glass of iced tea w/ lemon, and sitting on the deck, watching the world go by, is excitment enough!!!!!!

Im with Erik, get another motorcycle. You said your a harley guy, so change it up and get a street bike. You could also get a sports car and take it to your local track. My boss and his buddies all track their vettes and stuff one weekend a month for their adrenaline fix.

A harley obviously stirs your passion....but if you want to get your thrill fix...you cant even begin to imagine how much more insane a liter class sport bike is than a Harley.

It is not all that exciting, but it is fun. When urban caching, you have to be sure that you are not noticed while acquiring the cache. There is a little bit of Adrenalin involved with all the sneaking around. This has been a fun hobby for my wife and I for a few years now.

A nice dual-sport ride makes me buzz for a long time afterwards.

(one guy on a Harley wanted to race me. He had a flat, out of the place, place to d0 it. I told him...


"No. Down the hill, through the crick, up the hill through the parking-lot, three laps!

He denied.)

Ill be fifty here in a couple months...

up until last year when we moved, me and my boys rode quads. We sold them before we moved because at our new place, we have no property, and no place to store them.

The thing I like about a quad is that you can go like hell, ride wheelies, climb hills, and not have to worry about getting smashed by a car not paying attention. You can buy a decnet used yamaha, honda, kawi, or suzuki 450 for anywhere from 2500 to 4k and have a blast.
