If the most radical thing you have done recently is to learn a new short cut key on your word processor then you need to inject a few thrills into your life.
Having a safe desk job might be all comfortable and secure but knowing that you will never run out of paper clips is unlikely to get the adrenalin pumping.
If you want to taste adventure beyond the water cooler then today’s Big Deal will definitely get the needle on the excitement dial redlining.
Based on Easter Hill Farm in Stirlingshire (only 25 miles from the centre of Glasgow, and just over an hour from Edinburgh), Action Adventure Activities is offering archery and mountain boarding sessions for two.
Having watched assorted celluloid men in green tights pick off faraway targets like they were ten feet away, archery might look simple.
In fact, it’s easy to pick up the basics of using a bow and arrow but it’s devilishly hard to master the art of archery.
Having said that, the experienced instructors at Action Adventure Activities will soon have you twanging away merrily and generally making like you were born in Sherwood Forest.
A cross between snowboarding, skateboarding and lunacy, mountain boarding is the latest craze to strike outward bound thrill-seekers.
Strapped to a deck which is mounted on four wheels, you can choose whether to tackle a gentle incline or man up and go for something more challenging. Like the jumps.
Naturally, all the necessary safety equipment is laid on and the centre’s highly trained staff will be there to advise.
What’s it to be? Another weekend ironing shirts to work in the office you hate or white-knuckle thrills and spills in the glorious Stirlingshire countryside?
If you want to cast aside your stapler then today’s Big Deal is:
£25 for mountain boarding and archery sessions for two people at Action Adventure Activities in Stirlingshire; a 64% saving on the standard £70
Vouchers redeemed within one week of the offer going live, can be extended to 12months validity.
