Reality TV'll ruin your taste for high adventure, whether it's contorting into a human Tetris piece because you don't want to get spanked by a wall, or contorting into a human Tetris piece because you do want to be spanked by a hairmetal frontman. For a more dignified endeavor, turn to one of the world's most dignified spirits: the Drambuie Pursuit.
The Pursuit's a 100-mile race through the Scottish Highlands, retracing the steps of Bonnie Prince Charlie -- the rebel monarch who carried the secret ingredients for Drambuie liqueur close to his breast as he fled the Duke of Cumberland (nickname: "Butcher Cumberland" -- hence the fleeing). Enter your team of four, and you'll face a staggering array of challenges, including: archery, powerboat racing, climbing/descending a 200ft cliff, white-water rafting, off-road buggy racing, and canoeing the river Ness -- where the real monster will be your hideously chafed underarms. Afterwards, contestants get a blowout gala in the legendary burgh Inverness, home of Macbethian madness, not to mention the world's premier solo piping competition (suck on that, London's Kensington Conference Centre).
Only six American teams get the all-expense-paid, trans-Atlantic trip, but signing up for your shot's as easy as sipping the only Scottish liqueur that's as golden smooth as you are. So smooth, whether it were a rock wall or a rock & roll has-been, you'd be the one doing the spanking.
