Well, I'm not allowed to bungy jump because of a bad retina. I have vertigo too... :-/

You have never climbed a mountain...I mean what the hell....! I know they will strip search you at the border but you need to come to Alaska so I can help you check that one off.

No, not in the "all that gear" sense anyway. Mountain trails? Sure, lots of them. But not real climbing. I don't deal with heights very well...
