Women Gone Wild: Adventure Mamas

There are playdates of hair-raising proportions for moms who want more of a rush than packed lunches and carpools offer. Adventure moms, trade in their tots for a thrill and sometimes, a bit of terror. A recent article about a group of Bay Area mothers in the San Francisco Chronicle said:

"The point is to do something outside your comfort zone, something new," said Hana Yoon, 35, a new member who is a full-time mother of two.

I've been indoor skydiving! But that was before baby, and only because my friends made me. And I did try surfing in Maul in 2006, which was fun.
