Be Sure to Pack Your Ironing Board…

People travel to destinations for many various reasons. The outdoor enthusiast may choose hiking canoeing, geocaching and maybe even some of more extreme sports like base jumping or hang gliding. Well, the latest activity for the outdoor enthusiast/adventure seeker is Extreme Ironing!

Touted as an extreme sport and a performing art, people simply take their ironing board to an extreme and/or remote location and iron. Although many of us are just hearing of this craze in the last couple of years, it’s been around for a while. It was invented in 1997 in England by a man who decided to iron in his garden after a hard day at work. In 1999, he took an international trip around the world to promote the sport. Now, through more media attention and a growing number of enthusiasts, the sport has it’s own international extreme ironing contest (in which the quality of ironing affects 50% of your score!). Extreme Ironing teams even have their own sponsors like Rowenta, the German iron maker, who sponsored a trip in 2004 to have the inventor of the sport tour the US.

Have any of you tried this tongue-and-cheek extreme sport? If not, does it inspire you to plan your next vacation a little differently?
