the list
For updates to this list, check out the changelog.
practical options for the extreme
All the items on this page are acheivable if you want it bad enough. And if you do, you won't need this section. This section is just a quick selection of links that point you towards "the easy way" to be extreme - without you doing any legwork. If you want the items not listed here, you'll find a way to make them happen.
competitions and events
Events to attend, tournaments to compete in, competitions to watch.
places to go, things to see
Things to do
extreme activities
From the truly awesome to the exciting but normal
diff list

I've realized that as I add to this list no one will be able to tell what I've changed, so here is a changelog.
