It's a great day to be outside! I've packed my rucksack with food, water, raincoat, first aid kit and other supplies. I'm now heading out to the National Park for a walk through the forest to see that waterfall everyone has been talking about. Which of the following words, used in different parts of the world, does NOT describe this activity?
It's a great day for some exercise and excitement! My friend calls me and says she wants to go spelunking. She says she'll bring all the equipment we need including ropes, harnesses, helmets and torches. Into what environment will we be heading for this adventure?
It's a great day to be out in the mountains! Our group is close to reaching the summit but the snow has turned to ice making progression more difficult. Everyone pulls out their ice axe from their rucksack and puts a device on each boot that provides steel points that dig into the slippery terrain. What is the name for this boot attachment, needed for mountaineering above the snowline?
'It's a great day to go twitching!' my English friend said. So I grabbed my binoculars, my camera and an identification book on the endemic avian fauna and headed out to the nearest woodland. What activity are we participating in?
It was a great day to be cross-country skiing in the back-country with my friend Olav. I spotted another group skiing down a nearby glacier and using a strange and graceful means of turning - they'd drop one knee down almost to the ski. Olav told me it was a traditional technique from his country and if I watch the Olympic ski-jumping, they also land in this position. It's called 'telemark skiing', from the Telemark region in which it originated. But from which nordic country?
It's a great day to try something new! Jack asks me if I want to play a modern game of 'Hide and Seek'! He tells me I'll need a hand-held Global Positioning System (GPS) and we have to find these hidden containers using coordinates from a 'listing site'. What outdoor activity will I be learning today?
It's a great day for avoiding being arrested! An acquaintance of mine asked me to grab my special parachute and join him on top of the highest building in town just before dawn. We are then going to jump off, deploy the chutes, float safely to earth and then escape before being picked up for trespassing, as we don't have a permit for this! Tomorrow at dawn we're going to leap off the large TV antenna tower. What, sometimes illegal, 'jumping' activity are we indulging in?
It's a great day to go for a bike ride! I head out on the forest trail close to home where I soon meet a friend. After greeting me, he inspects my bike and myself and then says "Haven't you forgotten something?" Legislation requiring compulsory use of this particular cycling item has created a large amount of controversy in many countries, including heated debate after comments by UK Junior Minister for Cycling, Norman Baker, in April 2011. What is this controversial item?
It's a great day to go scuba-diving! My buddy Jamie says that a boat has been organized and we're going to investigate that shipwreck near the reef we've been talking about for months. Before leaving, we carefully check all of our equipment. The tanks are full, the wetsuits, masks and snorkels are ready to go. I next check the device that delivers the gas mixture from my tank (today we're using air for our shallow dive) where it is at high pressure, to my mouth at ambient pressure. What is the name of this critical piece of equipment?
It's a great day for flying a kite! The wind is steady but not too strong. I grab my kite and head down to the local park. On arrival, I'm astounded to see this huge kite up in the air! From a distance it looks like a centipede but when I gets closer I realize it's actually a beautifully decorated dragon with a head connected to a long tail. Which of the following countries is most associated with these Dragon Kites?
