Besides handing out the great list of awards to the Adventurers of the Year that I mentioned below, National Geographic Adventure has a few more fun items for us today in their Best of Adventure 2008 section.
First up, they have a great list of Must Have Gear with some very cool, high tech, items to lust after. Making the list are two cool watches, one from Polar and the other from Tag Heuer, a sweet mountain bike from Scott USA, and a laptop from Asus with a bamboo case, amongst other things. Just remember, the holidays are just around the corner, and if you’ve been good this year, you just might get that $6900 watch from Tag Heuer.
When you’re done drooling over the gear, check out the Year in Review Quiz and see how well you’ve kept up on the top adventures for 2008. I managed to score a 9 out of 10, which is enough to keep me an “amateur adventurer” according to Adventure’s standards. Damn, those guys are hard core!
Fun stuff! Enjoy!
