    Do you have a bucket list?

    If you do, share!

    I guess I do, but it's not formal or written down. In my head I have more of a list of things I always wanted to do, but I don't like the idea of thinking of it as "things I'd like to do before I die" sort of thing....in fact I hope I do most of them far before I die, while I'm still young and have loads of energy, or before my tastes change and the desire to do different things kicks in.

    Hmm...good question.
    Mine's pretty simple and short (this is off the top of my head, anyway)

    Go to a foreign country
    Actually be in a relationship
    get published
    Um...I can't really think of much else...I'm boring...:P

    Re: Do you have a bucket list?

    Not a real written list, but in an attempt to take a reprieve from my frantic packing for France I can spew out a couple items:

    - go skydiving
    - be trilingual
    - see the north and south poles
    - have a degree
    - climb everest base camp
    - climb killimanjaro
    - cycle a century run
    - win a bike race
    - go to space (you can laugh, but if this is possible before I die, it will be happening regardless of cost)

    ...yeah, I don't really do anything not-adventure related, apparently.

    Re: Do you have a bucket list?

    I never wrote my list down either, but I can come up with a few off the top of my head:

    - See the northern lights.
    - Complete 3 treks- Inca Trail (Peru), Kilimanjaro (Tanzania), and Everest Base Camp (Nepal).
    - Go on an African safari.
    - Have my picture taken on a camel in front of the Giza Pyramids.
    - Keep some chickens in my backyard.
    - Continue to have a home full of adopted animals.
    - Start my own small business.

    1. Go to Ireland and see where my ancestors come from.
    2. Go to Wales and Scotland.
    3. See Stonehenge.
    4. Fly fish some of the famous rivers out west.
    5. Move closer to Corbin.

    Re: Do you have a bucket list?

    The only one on my list I haven't gotten to yet is "Learn Latin."

    But I just added "Move further away from Monk."

    Re: Do you have a bucket list?

    Grr...lost my post

    I have a list, but like many it's not written down. I have been crossing a few things off of my list during my Motorcycle Trip (www.roknrol.info) and have actually found a few new things that I didn't know I wanted to do until I did them

    I'm in a new country (Canada), will be traveling across the continent, will be able to finally see the East Coast (NYC, Boston, DC, etc...the history is just plain awesome ) Saw my hometown (which I said I would never return to) 10 years after leaving, made an apology that was 20 years overdue, and hell...I'm traveling around 15k miles on a motorcycle with minimal funds and an extreme lack of knowledge about...well...everything, really. I'm meeting people from ALL walks of life - Transients to Professionals and everything in-between.

    For those that would like to know the specifics, please check the blog - it's helping fund the trip, and while the money is accumulating, the more people that check out the site (and perchance, click the banner ads) the more help I'll get. It doesn't cost anything but a few minutes of your time (besides, I like to think that my writing is entertaining enough for a quick glance )

    I've got a couple of videos up on the blog (please don't link them directly if you'd like others to see them - just link to the blog site so that I can get the revenue from the traffic) which are interesting - one involving a baby fawn and one with a black bear that I managed to get about 30 feet from
    http://www.roknrol.info <-- if the site's down, just check back later
