I'm addicted to adrenalin

I'm addicted to adrenalin, Ever since I retired as a Firefighter/Paramedic, I can't seem to get my adrenalin fix, When I hear sirens my blood starts pumping, hell my ringtone on my phone is a siren,
I repel Well not anymore since I got older and disabled I dove with sharks in the open ocean, I was trained as a mixed gas diver doing deep stuff, wreck penetration, cave diving, ice diving, night diving.
Now that I'm no longer doing that stuff I need to find something that a 59 y/o partially disabled old fart can do to get the adrenalin fix I'm so addicted to.
Trips to the range helped but now with the ammo shortage I can't afford to waste any, so I'm stuck with prepping for the next SHTF event.
Any ideas how I can get my adrenalin fix???

Either buy a sport bike or take up skydiving. Either will have you moving faster than nascar within ten seconds.

I just moved to GA and I will be jumping down in DeLand, Florida a lot this summer. Depending on what your partial disability is, exploring the sky is a very viable option. Skydiving can range from "relaxing" to "Oh holy ****" If you got your basics covered, I would have no problems showing you some stuff in the sky that will give you an adrenaline rush so heavy that you will either spend the day shaking or you will vomit.

If you have not been on a modern wiz-bang super happy fun time crotch rocket....it will, it will actually scare you. It is a flat out thrill of the first order. Of course, if you really are a thrill seeker....and if you fear acclimiating....you will a little but it is almost a a given that the bike will be and remain more capable than you, so you will always have just a "little more" to push.

...and make no mistake, they can bite you and it can cost you life and limb.

Try a race car. They don't even have to be fast to be thrilling. It's about cornering speed and getting it right.

Or going slow with the rush...rock crawling and other hard core off roading.
