Adventurous Milestones

BhutanAs we approach the start of a new year in 2015, I’m reminded of a conversation I had recently with my friend Karen about celebrating milestones with adventurous pursuits.

We take action in our 9’s (39, 49, etc)“, Karen said, “in anticipation of how we want to feel during that landmark birthday, anniversary or other milestone event.” Karen was 49 when she decided “I don’t want to be home emptying the dishwasher when I’m 50“. She was standing on the top of Kilimanjaro instead.

My long-time friend, Lou, was 59 when he approached me about designing and achieving his dream trip to Bhutan. He was trekking and enjoying Bhutan’s cultural “Gross National Happiness” when he was 60.

Italy - DolomitesMy dad was 39 when he proposed and married my mom. They had five sons and were married 35 years. I still remember my dad saying “Life seemed to speed up after I turned 30“. I couldn’t agree with him more. I’m currently 49, engaged and will be married (for the first time) before I am 50 – 3 weeks before I will be 50. Hmmmm, “We take action in our 9’s…”.

In 2010, Dean created a three week Alaskan tour for my two sons and me. For all the trips I`ve ever taken in my life, and I`ve traveled quite a bit, this was by far the most customized trip I`ve ever taken. He did a great job of challenging us and catering it to our desires. The whole thing was exquisitely coordinated. — David K. New York, NY
