OMG...I was just talking with my sister about this. We had such a loose childhood with lots of aunts, uncles and cousins all about the same age. We joke that our parents probably mixed us all up at birth by grabbing the wrong car seat, we were raised like wolves....and we all lived to be fairly well adjusted adults.
Play unsupervised with BBguns (I was shot too many times..ON PURPOSE)
Jump from Haymows
Shit surf behind cow (holding the tail)
Ride 2-6 people on a 3-wheeler/motocycle, no helmets, no supervision.
Disappear for the entire day
Host parties where my parents would go to a friends for the night with the instructions of "if they drink they don't drive" I was about 15 and my sister was 13 when they started that. One party we filled the entire back end of my dads truck with cans and empty cases.
Drive their vehicles at about age 9, as long as we stayed on our road.
Spend the entire summer at my aunts house 3 hours away (my poor aunt seemed to get EVERYONE bc they had an inground pool)
Ride horses with no equipment (saddle, reins) while we played indians.
I could go on and on and would have a heart attack if either of my kids attempted any of it!
