I think one of the reasons Coach and I work so well as a team is because we balance each other out.  We have an interesting dynamic.  He likes to think things through and doesn't make rash decisions.  I react a little more spontaneously and impetuously.  I make up my mind pretty quickly and once I've made up my mind, that's pretty much it.  I rarely change my mind.  About anything. 

I consider myself to be fairly adventurous.  I get bored very easily so I'm usually up for a challenge and like to try new things.  Especially when we're on vacation.  We've had fun zip-lining, I've swam with dolphins, KJ and I like to go horseback riding, Cosmo and I like to snorkel.  I'm not a fan of heights but I would like to give bungee jumping a try (and would also like to sky dive).  I'd like to take a family white-water rafting trip.  We've had fun jet skiing, snow skiing (I've never water skied), I've given snowboarding a try.  I like to shoot guns. 

However, as spontaneous as I can be, I like to research and be prepared for the experience.  I think part of the fun is planning for the adventure.
