What's New This Week on XTRORD.com

by Alan Rider

It’s been a busy autumn around here as I crossed the continent to squeeze in a few more extraordinary experiences before the flakes started to fly.  Here’s a quick look:

Digging Deep

C’mon, tell the truth.  You’ve driven by a construction site and secretly wondered what it’d be like to be out there tearing it up at the controls of a 10-ton bulldozer or tracked excavator.  Well, my friend, here’s your chance to do just that.

Sweet Smells

Walk by any department store fragrance counter and you’ll find dozens of “signature scents” hawked by all kinds of minor celebrities.  My advice?  Unless you really want to smell like thousands of other people, keep right on walking and check out this custom perfume-making experience.

Going Fast

I suspect anybody who tells you they don’t feel the need for speed is in serious denial.  Which means the idea of running your street-legal car or motorcycle wide-open on Utah’s Bonneville Salt Flats should have nearly universal appeal. 

Leafy Lodgings

Ever want your own treehouse when you were a kid?  Me too.  Which is why I was so excited to find an arboreal bed-and-breakfast where you can take your pick of a dozen of the coolest treehouses you could ever imagine.
