35 Adventures For Thrill Seekers

— October 2, 2008 — Lifestyle
Steve Fossett, an adventurer who was lost in 2007, is making his way back into the media this week. Hikers in California discovered the wallet and pilots license of Steve Fossett inside a crashed plane.

Steve Fossett, a “great and extraordinary” friend of Sir Richard Branson’s, has been missing since 2007. Branson hopes authorities will friend his friend, and fellow adventurer with whom he tried to circumnavigate the world by balloon.

The story got me thinking… What other kind of real life adventure stories do I know about? To answer that is the slideshow below, a thrilling look into the lives of some of the most daring things done in the last few years.
