    Using adventures to deal with stress

    Caregiving can be pretty stressful. (How's that for an understatement??)

    Maybe it's just me, but I find that adventures really take my mind off of the situation. Just last weekend I rented a motorcycle and rode up the coast with some friends, spending the night, and then riding back. (In case you were wondering, this was up the Pacific Coast Highway starting in Los Angeles and riding through Malibu and Santa Barbara, staying in Solvang.)

    That may seem like a pretty extreme thing to do, but I've been riding motorcycles all my life until I had to give mine up about 10 years ago. I'd been threatening to do this for some time now, but last weekend I finally did it and I had a ball. Just what I needed!

    Have you been on any adventures as a way of dealing with your caregiving stress?
