    Last year I went and did something I went camping on my own in the wilderness almost bear grylls style for nearly a week. Just being on my own and treking through mountains and i must admit i really enjoyed myself.

    This year I do plan on being a little more adventurous and taking it a step further, does anyone have any suggestions for something I could do along the same lines?

    Walk across the Pyrenees from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean. The easier route is from France to Spain.

    Just reminds me of that bit in Blue Harvest:
    'Arent parsecs a measure of distance, not time?'
    :p

    [Nerdy response] - taken from wookieepedia

    The Kessel Run was one of the most heavily-used routes in the Galactic Empire] Han Solo claimed that his Millennium Falcon "made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs". A parsec was a unit of distance, not time. Solo was not referring directly to his ship's speed when he made this claim. Instead, he was referring to the shorter route he was able to travel by skirting the nearby Maw black hole cluster, thus making the run in under the standard distance. By moving closer to the black holes, Solo managed to cut the distance down to about 11.5 parsecs.
