GoPro Wide Angle Helmet Cam
We found absolutely the best thing ever! Well, maybe not ever, but definitely a must have for us. There is one word for this gear — sweet! If I had to describe it in two words they would be f’ing sweet!
How can you not love this when it:
- records 2.5 hours on a single charge
- shoots HD video hands free (for when you are barreling toward your death)
- water proof to 60 meters (180 feet)
- shoots in light
- is sturdy enough to avoid bumps and bruises when you’re kicking a**
Oh yeah we have to have it! Can’t live one more day without it.
It is available from the Official Go Pro Store for $299.
Obviously, Ab has to wear this little number (thanks babe) since this is clearly not compatible with my sexy lol. I can’t wait to get it and show you guys what we see.
Hear is some sample video from the cam. You can’t tell us this isn’t hot (well you could, but we won’t listen).
Vodpod videos no longer available.
Okay this is funny. We soooo identify with Blair’s experience in this video. Hell we should be in this video! Check out the lady that snaps the quick photo. We are so laughing.

We are having travel lust… Pure raw animalistic lust… National Geographic Adventure has published a list of the Top 25 trips for 2010.
- Oh my my my… It is our goal to take each one of these trips before we die..
Even if these trips don’t suit your fancy check out the adventure travel companies associated with each link. They have lots of unique offerings for the intrepid among you.
The trip to Nepal looks awesome and who wouldn’t want to go to Bhutan?
Tonight we shall have sweet dreams cuddled up next to our laptops with heads full of adventures to be…
Good ‘ole National Geographic. Who knew you were good for something other than showing little boys their first set of naked breasts?
Actual Good Indoor Rock Climbers
Saturday, Ab and I decided to go indoor rock climbing at Dallas Rocks . I had heard that it was really good for bouldering — not that I have ANY competency in bouldering. That’s just what I heard. (I didn’t want you to have any misconceptions there :)) The facility had plenty of space and well laid out. However, you might not want to go on a Saturday. They were having a birthday party (or several) with about a kajillion (what do you mean that’s not a real number?) kids which meant our instruction was a bit rushed and a few parts left out. We didn’t learn until we were leaving that the colored tape designated paths up the wall that range from 5.5 (easy) to 5.xx (yeah right buddy). Oh well we will leverage that little nugget of knowledge next time.
Rock climbing is one of those things that looks really fun and is packed with mental and physical challenges. There’s just one teeny tiny problem.. It’s hard as hell. We are never ones to pass up a challenge, so we got outfitted with harness, shoes and a shared bag of chalk. It cost about $49.00 for three people (my oldest son was with us).
We tried top roping and free climbing (bouldering) walls since you have to have a special certification to do lead climbing (not that there was any chance what so ever that I was going to attempt lead climbing).
I can’t by any stretch of the imagination say we have any level of expertise at climbing, but it was fun. We’re going to do it again. It seems like something we should be better at. Maybe next time we should splurge for a lesson.
Ab and I are competing the the Urban Dare adventure race on 12/12 in Ft.Worth. Urban Dare is a race involving physical or mental dares, trivia, and photos. 2 person teams try to solve clues and be the first to finish. An example clue from the DC race:
He settled a dispute over this moniker in an eight-hour shooting match with William Comstock. You’ll need to be a good shot, too. Visit his place and throw a bull’s-eye to move on. This dare does not open until 11:30. Plan your course accordingly.
The course is usually 5 to 7 miles and has a 5 hour time limit. You can not drive or bike to find the check points – you have to walk, run, or use public transportation (yeah, okay). You can use mobile devices.
If you are in DFW on 12/12 come cheer us on. You know how I feel about winning — It’s how you play the game & whether you win or lose — don’t get it twisted lol.
Well, it’s not just Abdul and I that have adventures. We involve the entire gang. This week Khalil (my oldest) started MMA. I’m sure I’ll be getting some kind of parenting award any day now for letting my 14 year old cage fight…. Either that or a call from CPS…
Ahhh… good times!
