My next several posts will be dedicated to a mini-series all about fun. For starters, not all fun is created equal, and many adventurers and outdoor enthusiasts like to categorize different types of fun using a 3-point scale. For the first post of the fun mini-series, I’ll introduce you to Type I fun. This should be the easiest post, since most of us are already highly familiar with Type I fun. Type I fun is...well...FUN. Type I fun is fun while you’re doing it, there’s no catch, and you’d be totally happy if it lasted forever. For example, taking a short hike with your best friend on a beautiful day to marvel at the unique and striking beauty of Crater Lake qualifies as Type I fun. Some other activities that fall into this category are relaxing on a boat, sitting on the beach with friends, drinking margaritas, and seeing stand-up comedy shows. Perhaps the only minor caveat to Type I fun, is that over the years it all tends to blend together, and we can be left with distinct memories of just a few of these fun experiences. As we continue the fun mini-series, we’ll delve into some Type II fun, and hopefully, for all our sakes, no Type III fun.
