Adventure is an exciting or unusual experience. It may also be a bold, usually risky undertaking, with an uncertain outcome. Adventures may be activities with some potential for physical danger such as exploring, skydiving, mountain climbing, river rafting or participating in extreme sports. The term also broadly refers to any enterprise that is potentially fraught with physical, financial or psychological risk, such as a business venture, or other major life undertakings.

An adventure game is a video game in which the player assumes the role of protagonist in an interactive story driven by exploration and puzzle-solving instead of physical challenge. The genre's focus on story allows it to draw heavily from other narrative-based media such as literature and film, encompassing a wide variety of literary genres. Nearly all adventure games are designed for a single player, since this emphasis on story and character makes multi-player design difficult. (Adventure game, 2015) [3]blank.gif Wikipedia

  • A Surfer’s Reflections From on a Decade at Sea by Mary Anne Potts Jun 8, 2016

Clark now spends most of her time…
  • Ultrarunner Scott Jurek on Carbo-Loading, His Favorite Races, and Pushing Through Adversity by Hannah Webb Jun 7, 2016
    Legendary adventure runner Scott Jurek has said that running is a solo sport requiring absolute mental focus. But, if there was one person this 2016 Adventurer of the Year would want on the trail with him, Jurek would choose Mahatma Gandhi—another master of psychological endurance. Over his 20-year career, Jurek has helped popularize the sport…
  • Pedaling Along Power Lines in Northern Laos – Part 3/5 by Kyle Hemes Jun 6, 2016
    What would Daohu think? This question stuck with us through the days and weeks after meeting such an ambitious and inquisitive Hmong youth, at 3,600 feet, on the side of a mountain. We were seated in miniature plastic chairs, eating cucumber, the only alternative to the ubiquitous processed Chinese snacks sold in rural roadside shops…
  • How to Hike the Backcountry With Your Furry Best Friend by Kat Long Jun 3, 2016
    On his multiweek hikes through Utah’s canyon country, Ace Kvale always brings his custom GPS, or Genghis Positioning System, also known as his dog, an Australian blue heeler named Genghis Khan. “He’s always very solid, always there, but never in the way.

  • One of Yosemite’s Leading Climbers Also Saves Babies’ Lives by Hilary Oliver Jun 2, 2016
    When Libby Sauter leans over a small child in an operating room, his chest cut open to reveal his tiny heart for surgery—the most vulnerable, unstable patient in the entire hospital—the room is tense. “You have to try and be super, super organized to keep everything together because there’s so much going on,” Sauter says.…
  • This Man Is Living Your Tropical Island Dream Life by Max Lowe Jun 1, 2016
    See all the #InaWeekend Bahamas videos. Charlie and Joyce Beede are as warm and cheerful as anyone I know, and we laughed at offhand jokes and reflected on the day’s adventure amid the crackling sound of fire and the smell of roasting garlic cooking with the fish. There was a scar here, though, and Charlie…
  • Biking on Laos’ Future High Speed Rail Route – Part 2/5 by Kyle Hemes Jun 1, 2016
    With additional writing by Will Stauffer-Norris Following the proposed route of a high-speed rail—by bicycle, in the uplands of Southeast Asia—proves to be a challenging prospect. But our trek is necessary to truly understand how the massive new railroad would change the region’s cultural and physical landscape—its friction of terrain. We gawk at the landscape,…
  • Biking the Course of Southeast Asia’s Future High-Speed Railway – Part 1/5 by Kyle Hemes May 31, 2016
    It was 7:30 in the morning, and we were already blanketed with a thin film of fine red dust. Any relief the high-altitude provincial capital of Phongsali had given us from the mid-May heat was long gone. Our jet-black bicycles, gear piled atop them, were orange and silty as we rolled up, unexpectedly, to the…
