OF COURSE YOU'RE FAMILIAR with Socrates’ quote that "The unexamined life is not worth living." Then he drank hemlock and killed himself, so what does that say about the examined life?

In telling you that the unadventurous life is not worth living, we are not recommending suicide if you don’t have time to climb any mountains or ski off any cliffs. We merely suggest Hey! Start getting your RDA of high adventure!

You should also understand what we mean when we say "High Adventure."

High Adventure covers a lot more than the physically challenging and sometimes dangerous pursuits that we talk so much about. Sure, most members of the High Adventure Coalition love those things because they make our lives richer and more meaningful. They clear our minds and open our hearts, they purge us with adrenaline. They change us inside and out, and we like the changes.

But we’ve found dozens of things that are also exciting in life, things that enrich our lives in ways that physical pursuits alone can’t supply.

Think about it. Think about your life. What risks have you recently taken that have made you a better person? What risks have you avoided out of fear? That’s what we’re talking about. Conquer yourself. Conquer life—or at least its fears. Set high goals and don’t let anything stop you from achieving them. Take healthy risks. Become the person you always wished you could be.

High Adventure is the action that grows from the rich soil of passion for life.

Education is another of the High Adventure Coalition's major values. You don't have to go to college to learn--there are numerous books and videos on nearly every subject and many people you can talk to.

Know your world. Know yourself. Then change both for the better. The combination of knowledge, wisdom, and action constitute highest education.
