    Please! I am looking how to "express" myself on freetime.

    SO far I'm doing:

    Skydiving
    Snowboarding / skiing
    Mountain biking
    Trekking
    Playing LoL (very extreme)
    Rock climbing (bouldering)
    Airsoft milsim

    Looking forward to try / do in a year or two:

    Base jumping
    mountain climbing (going this winter hopefully!)
    Rope jumping
    Cliff jumping


    Also includes stupid stuff like jumping in a snow from 6th floor and so on.

    But please guys, give some suggestions, really looking forward to try something out! Especially in winter season.

    Dankishen!

    Along with mountain biking, serious hiking that includes climbing, and/or mountain climbing go together.

    If you've never been caving or spelunking, those are other great options.

    In an adrenaline junkie way, paintballing is great.

    Scuba, parasailing, whitewater rafting/kayaking, motorized racing of some kind, some form of martial arts, fencing (I do that and skiing), hardcore parkour.

    Forgot to add few. But keep going. Post your experience, please!

    Been rock climbing for some time. Achievements: was on edinburgh news paper first page as "some sort of crazy dude free climbing on arthur seat" :D
    Later almost killed myself falling from 6 meters. Cool times


    Kayaking sounds awesome, but I think it's a rather suicide mission if just done without proper experience.

    Never tried caving, because There are none in my country. Any suggestions about some great spots?

    Oh, that is a tough one. I don't know about cave systems in Europe. I know that, at least in the U.S, there was a clear place where the glaciers ended at the end of the last ice age (terminal moraine, Pleistocene). South of the glaciated areas, the limestone bedrock naturally formed cave systems through processes of water infiltration. Based on that, it looks like Lithuania was just north of the line where those processes occurred.

    Doing some quick searches, I came up with this site. CAVING SPELUNKING BAD TöLZ MUNICH BAVARIA GERMANY

    It looks like the nearest attraction listed with spelunking is in Germany. I am sure there would be something closer, perhaps in Belarus. You might have to get a more accurate local source though.

    Kayaking doesn't have to be a suicide mission. One spring a pair of students took two kayaks down the "Mighty" River Jordan in Bloomington, Indiana. The "Mighty" is sarcastic since it is only a meter deep creek that is probably a maximum of three meters wide.

    Oh no, that sort of kayaking is easy. I mean the REAL river kayaking, like mountain rivers etc. Simple kayaking aint no extreme :D

    Longboarding is pretty awesome, I don't suggest bombing though, very dangerous and stupid.

    The suggestions so far are not extreme enough. I suggest skydiving/MMA, you skydive with another guy and you beat each other on the way down!:cool:

    Diving

    I personally free dive, but scuba's probably cool too, there's nothing quite like swimming out really far and staring off into the abyss.

    ...Seasons in the Abyss? (SLAYER!)

    Sorry.. it was too easy.. I just had to do it...

    It actually was extreme kayaking since it was in such an extremely cramped area. The two were pushing themselves through some unexpectedly rough areas! It was extremely funny too. :D
