By now, you’re all aware of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge that’s been all over your social media accounts, television screens, etc. for the last week or two. The other day, I received a challenge from my cousin Cameron. I knew I had to accept, but I wasn’t up for the typical challenge. This being Optimizing Adventure, I decided to answer the following questions:
- How can I make the Ice Bucket Challenge more Adventerous?
- Where would I most like to get a bucket of ice dumped on my head?

I’ve mentioned in several posts now that one of the great things about San Diego and the country as a whole is that open space is plentiful and well distributed. Wherever you are, you can be on a trail within minutes. In Carlsbad area, one of these neighborhood trail systems is the La Costa Preserve. My co-worker Steve and I often ride mountain bikes here after work, and it’s quickly become one of my favorite local rides in the area – not something you’d drive too far to seek out, but an awesome option if you live or work near or are just passing through.
