NOt to me, Barry, but I say, if you fancy a hot air balloon ride, or to do something special within your financial reach, then go for it and do it now.
Yep, this is why I love reckless/fun pursuits
Go throw yourself out of planes, go flying, hang-gliding, zorbing, karting, bungee jumping, track days etc etc
I never understand why people say "I would do it but... <insert pathetic excuse here>".
The only problem is that once you start enjoying all those adrenaline highs, normal life seems quite dull
I always wondered where my life was lacking - now I fathom that it is a shortage of death-defying stunts and high-octane pursuits that has contributed to my deprivation all this time!
I'm not sure I'd know where to begin a search for planes to jump out of! Having said that, I'd probably only consider it if I realised that I didn't actually want to go to Tunisia anyway, for instance, and I'd have to be pretty biased against the nation for which I was heading, as me vertigo kicks in upon reaching the peak of our step ladder when changing lightbulbs and such...
Still, I would heartily advocate that you jump in with both feet while the going is good, Bazza!
