If I were to retype this now is would easily be over 500 items long. But I do most things spur of the moment which is why this list sat untouched on my flash drive for years. I will probably never add to it or look at it again, if I do anything else on this list it will be because I woke up one morning and thought to myself  “I am going to do (insert awesome thing here) today”.

Next weekend I plan on going backcountry snowboarding off Loveland Pass. I plan on hiking from my car at the summit along the top of the peaks until I am about a half mile into the backcountry, where I will hopefully find fresh powder and not trigger a avalanche. Wish me Luck!

    Oh my gosh! I think since high school I have only scratched off a few items on my list an I don’t even know where it could be! You have my brain turning and now I have a new list to write!

    Good luck with all of that. I’m sure you’ll edit as you go. For the White Water rafting trips, many people overlook West Virginia. There is a GREAT trip there on the Gauley River during the Fall Release from the base of the Summersville Damn. I’ve taken that trip and it is loads of fun. If you’re ever out that way in September, be sure to check it out.

    Love this. I’ve done some of those things, and they were great.
    I particularly like 1, 12, 18, 23, 34, 37, 48, 82, and 83. Maybe I’ll add those to my bucket list. 🙂

    Been there, done that. All good clean fun and nobody loses an eye.
    At the risk of coming across as a sour jaded cynical old Poop (always capitals for me, please) (I’m a Leo*) you’d be advised to revamp your list in the light of reality (and my latest posts).

    Good luck~!

    * That’s the one everyone else wishes they were …
