While I’m not much for jaunty caps and green tights, I have to admit that I kinda dig the “another day, another adventure” spirit that runs through the whole Robin Hood legend.  And, if the crazy number of times Hollywood has retold the story of the world’s most famous outlaw hero is any indication, apparently I’m not alone in this.

Like a lot of the cool adventures portrayed in movies and television shows, however, watching the exploits of Robin Hood and his band of merry men on the big screen this past weekend got me to thinking about one of XTRORD.com’s most important guiding principles.  Namely the one about how reality kicks virtual reality’s butt every time.  In other words, I figure it’s always a safe bet that you’ll have a lot more fun having a once-in-a-lifetime adventure for yourself than watch someone else having it on-screen.

Which is why I thought I’d do a little digging to see if there were ways modern-day Robin Hood wannabes could actually experience the life and times of the gold-hearted gang from Sherwood Forest.  Here’s what I came up with:
