As an opposite to the `I have never` post, I thought I`d start another with `I have`.......what unusual or quirky things have you done?

I have abseiled down the side of Ripley Castle
I have been the victim of the Indian knife throwing act
I have pot holed in Gibraltar
I have held a huge snake

    I trouble thinking of decent ones. I need to do more interesting things! :D

    I have driven a selection of sports cars on race tracks
    I have been driven around the Lotus test track by a professional driver
    I have almost cut my finger off
    I have been in a prison cell

    PS Gibraltar is a nice place isn't it? I've been there a few times. Have you taken off/landed at the very short runway at the airport there? I guess that's worthy of going on this thread!! Quite fun!! :)

    Me too, it's very nice. Was that when you lived in Gibraltar? I had it there - it seemed to be quite popular there and in Spain.

    Haha, I was thinking the same but clutched at straws a little and thought of some.

    Is that how much was took off or how much was left? :o
