Sit in A Dumb & Dumber Heart Jacuzzi Tub


Who hasn’t seen Dumb and Dumber and not wanted to chill in a heart shaped hot tub?

Back in college we were in New Jersey and the only request we had for a hotel was that it had to have a heart shaped jacuzzi tub. We found one in the shady part of town but it was worth it! If you really want one they have them for sale but I’d say you try one at a hotel first. Whatever the price of the hotel the pictures are always priceless!

Run the Rocky Stairs


In Philadelphia people don’t see “Rocky” as a fictional character, he is a living legend. I can’t tell you how many people went off raving how great he is and how much he did for the city. After telling us all this the locals told us where the statue and stairs of Rocky were, and we were off to see them.

It was so much fun to see the statue and even more fun to run the stairs! I felt like Rocky, only thing missing were some cow carcasses to punch.

Trapeze Flying


This story starts back in December of 2010, I was looking for Christmas presents for my brother and his wife who live in Seattle, so me being “Frugal Ben” went to Groupon Seattle to see if their were any good deals for them, and I came across this deal for a Trapeze Class at Emerald City Trapeze.

I wasn’t sure if Nate and Erin would enjoy doing it but I really wanted to do it myself, so onto “The List” it went. I didn’t think this goal would come true so quickly, but I was able to come to Seattle to visit the family.

So as soon as we got a chance Dave, Hi-d, and I all went to the trapeze place. It was fun from the get go. The other girls in the class were shocked and hilarious while attempting to match Hi-d’s flexibility.

After the stretching and quick instructions we started hitting the trapeze. The goal the whole time was to be hanging by your knees with your arms out extended by the 3rd swing so that the guy on the other trapeze could catch you. It’s harder than you think, but the whole experience was totally worth it! A lot of fun.

Soon enough this might be me and I’ll be traveling around with my friends Barnum and Bailey to a town near you.
