Donkey...? Never rode one.

Horse...? Can't remember, maybe 5 at a fair?

Camel...? Passed up the opportunity (in Morocco) because I was too beat from an overnight ride in a bus. I had been up for like 36 hours.

ATV/quad...? Probably the age of 10. Never liked the way they steered at first, until I eventually transitioned from dirt bikes to ATVs at the age of 14...

Three-wheeler (motorized)? ~14. Rode a friend's. Did not like the awkward balance.

Dirt bike (NOT motorcycle)...? My dad got me one when I was 9 years old, an 80cc model, in part to improve my lacking coordination.

Motorcycle (street legal)...? ~16. Rode an 1980's vintage 250cc down the road and back.

Snowmobile...? Around 7 or 8. I have a snowmobile safety endorsement to my driver's license, which I obtained around the age of 14 or 15 (before I had my driver's license), but have never really rode since as I do not like the way snowmobiles steer.

Jet ski...? Never, surprisingly for a guy who grew up in MN.

Wakeboard...? Never.

Amphibious vehicle...? Never.

Parasail...? Never.

Glider...? Never.

Iron bull (the kind you find in a bar)...? Never.

On top of a bus or motorhome...? I've gone on top of our motorhome (hey, there was a ladder), but only when it was fixed. Have never rode on the top of a bus.

Pontoon boat? Earliest I can remember was at the age of 5, at a nearby campground on a lake. First time actually driving one was 16.

Zipline? 18, in Costa Rica.

Sandboard? Never.
