30 days of...Great Dates Week 3 - Get Down and Dirty

Dates 16 - 23 involves a little dirty behavior.
Now, get your mind out of the gutter for this is a
G-rated blog. When I say dirty, I literally mean dirty, as in covered or marked with an unclean substance. I happen to think getting dirty "with the methods described below" is the best way to laugh and let loose, getting you closer to each other. So have fun on any of these dirty dates below.

16. Do the MUDRUN - This is the World Famous Mud Run at Camp Pendleton! The Mud Run is a challenging 10K run with hills, tire obstacles, river crossings, two 5-foot walls with mud on both sides, tunnel crawl, slippery hill climb, and the final 30-foot mud pit. Along the course there will be 6 water points with personnel staged at each. This is the most fun you can have running a 10K! Register early becuase this event sells out at least 4 months in advance.

17. GEOCACHING - For those of you who love the amazing race, this is a fun adventure you and a date can do anytime. All you need is a GPS! Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, outdoors and then share your experiences online. Geocaching is enjoyed by people from all age groups, with a strong sense of community and support for the environment.

18. Bury each other at the beach - A day at the beach can not be beat. What better way to taunt your date than to bury them in some dirty sand. Take a picture and cherish the memory forever.

19. Get a BODY Massage in MUD - If a towel and a massage table suits you better than a 10-mile obstacle course, then opt for an all-body mud pack at your favorite spa. Better yet, pick up a bottle of Dead Spa Mineral Mud for $25. Put it on each other, sit out in the sun and get cracked-up while you are dirty.

20. Play Golf together - This is just a fun activity to do whether you can play or not. If you can't play, chances are you will end up in the sand or water. Actually that will happen even if you can play.

21. Play Paintball - Get your aggressions out in 37 acres of playing fields designed solely for paintball tournaments and escapades with your date.

22. WINE FESTIVALS- For I Love Lucy fans, the smashing grapes scene is unforgettable. Now, you too can smash grapes with your bare feet at your local winery. The Ponte Winery in Temecula hosts an annual festival and a WINE STOMP tournament in the Fall. Afterword, keep your shoes off and sit those bare-grape-stained feet and enjoy a picnic lunch in the middle of the vineyard. Bellisimo!

23 . HOT SPRINGS RESORT- After all the dirty dating you have participated in, a nice change is to visit one of California's Hot Springs. When one bathes in these luxuriant waters, after 3 - 4 minutes, millions of tiny bubbles cover one's skin. The CO2 and water penetrate one's skin and rapidly dilate one's capillaries, giving an incredible feeling of calm, warm, peace and tranquility. For a list of ALL the Hot Spring Locations throughout the Western United States, buy the guide, Hot Springs and Hot Pools of the Southwest, at
