It's odd, but I think most of my "greatest experiences" were actually quite terrifying at the time...but they'll be stories I can tell for the rest of my life.
The "good" experiences are more general, and don't make great stories...like canoeing down a river for days, with just nature around us, or going to the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam (and seeing the REAL Rembrandts), walking around London (you just FEEL the history there), walking around New York City with my wife, etc.
The "great" experiences are:
Running from a Kodiak bear in Alaska...
Getting away from a bunch of Bedouins holding us at swordpoint in Saudi Arabia...
Rescuing kids who had fallen through a frozen lake (also in Alaska)...
My first hunting trip (and realization that a shotgun is not a good weapon for hunting rabbit)..
