    Of course we are all curious about our collective sexual bucket lists (I think there is a thread about that), but this one is for all the things you want to do that are above and beyond the ordinary in the non-sexual realm. Y'all realize you're gonna have to take work a little less seriously to squeeze these things in, don't ya? Hopefully this thread will get you out there and motivated!

    I'll start. I want to....

    Go to the ten states I have not yet visited.

    Be able to say I have been hiking in every national park in the US (I have a good start on this already).

    Take a sled dog (mushing) vacation in Norway.

    Check out the Iditarod in person.

    Go to the Winter Olympics.

    Go backpacking for more than a long weekend.

    Take a cycling tour of Europe.

    Spend a lot of time in Ireland.

    Go rock climbing out of state.

    Orchestrate my classical pieces.

    Take bits and pieces of clothing from thrift stores, refashion them and market them. (And market my original designs too).

    There are so many more with most of them being outdoorsy things, but here is the one I am craving right now:

    Go sailing all over the Carribean for two or three months, wearing nothing but swimsuits or nothing at all.

    Too many things to list ... I kept starting and having to revise, go back, delete, add ...

    So I'll just say: A LOT OF STUFF! :eek:

    If you end up having to choose between Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon, I would pick Yellowstone. It is infinitely more interesting and beautiful. I've been to the Grand Canyon twice and explored both rims, but I'd have to say it is probably my least favorite of the many national parks I have visited. It is big...I'll give it that. Also, if you go to Yellowstone, if you have time you could fit in a trip to the adjacent Grand Tetons National Park, which is amazing in and of itself. This is just my opinion, but if you camp at these sorts of places, I think it is a more interesting way to experience them.

    I should have multiquoted. Oh well...

    For Johnny....been to Penn's landing but not for the fireworks. That would be awesome. Are you a Flyers fan by any chance?

    For HFH....swimming with dolphins is awesome!

    For BB....I know what you mean. I may never end up doing my European cycling trip.

    For everyone.....I like all these ideas. Y'all are making my bucket list bigger.

    Haha....since my comment about the Grand Canyon, I started thinking about rimming.

    I want to ski in Austria and learn to play violin too.

    Those hills will take you a day. Come over here to the West - where we have real mountains; hike some of those. :)

    Let see.... a couple things.
    1. Want to own a fishing charter on the gulf. Take clients out on my leisure in a semi retirement state. Almost hit that plateau a few years ago and something knocked me down and stood in my way. Clawing to get back at that point and will do that in five. ;)

    2. Want to make a solo jump, maybe night jump. Still like to pump that heart. ;)

    3. Go on a 2 year coastal and historical tour across the Americas and actually take time to see some things. I've been all over most of the Americas, but spent very little time anywhere doing or seeing. :)

    I have done a very small portion of it, and I have sometimes thought I would like to do the whole thing. I hope you get to do it!

    We have joked about what would happen if we both lost our jobs. My favorite is going down to the BVI, buying a sailboat (big one) and running snorkeling tours. I think I would enjoy that....for a time. It sounds like you will really do it!


    I forgot to mention that I did not get a drum kit for Christmas like I was thinking. I was so darn sure that was what my husband was up to. I really love the things he gave me, so I was not super disappointed. But now....forget about what I said about the violin in my last post....I think the drum kit is the way to go, so I am adding that to my list.
