My bucket list…….

In case you don’t know – a Bucket List is a list of things that you want to do before you…..”kick the bucket“.

There was a movie called Bucket List that was pretty good – worth watching. Just thinking about life recently and how fast time flies by – and decided to put some things on my Bucket List.

Here we go:

  • Visit the Grand Canyon
  • Go to one of those tropical beaches where the water is crystal clear and you can see fish swimming around – possibly Key West
  • Visit my fathers grave one more time
  • Weigh 185 pounds
  • Read the Bible all the way through
  • Take a weekend and watch every single episode of Seinfeld
  • Go ghost hunting
  • Go deep sea fishing on a smaller private boat
  • Spend a week in the mountains in a cabin
  • Travel to Alaska
  • Travel through a swamp
  • Go scuba diving
  • Go on a cruise
  • Get a book published
Well – this is what ┬áhave so far. My goal is to get the list to 100.
Any suggestions?

  1. Sky Diving,Explore an unknown cave,Hunt for big elk. Those are just a few. I need to get my Bucket list together. Good idea.

  2. 1. Combine Scuba diving & “clear water see fish” by getting scuba certified and then go to Cozumel (Mexico Yucatan Peninsula) or Hawaii.

    2. Combine Key West and ‘go deep sea fishing on a smaller private boat’.

    I’ve done both and thoroughly enjoyed.

    Add to Hawaii trip – go see the Hawaii National Volcanoes Park and stay at the The Volcano House hotel. Way cool.

  3. I can agree with every one save watching that “show about nothing”, I would rather be waterboarded for a week straight.


  4. Good luck! Two of mine aren’t possible anymore, I wanted to travel on the Concorde and see a shuttle launch in person. Of course I still have my nerd European vacation, all the significant WWII battlefields. Then there is the getting the pilot’s licence, and multi engine rated.

  5. This may sound bad but I once spent a week in a nice resort whore house in Venezuela and I would highly recommend it to anyone . Had a great time . Anyway good luck with the list .

  6. I have driven to Alaska many times, the first time in 1974. Awesome! Don’t fly. Most of the wildlife, especially black bears and grizzlies will be seen in Canada. Take the Cassiar highway going up or down and the Alaskan highway the opposite direction to see the most new scenery. I prefer to drive it in late June to enjoy the greatest effect of the long days. Make sure to go to Fairbanks, Seward, Homer and drive the tunnel to Whittier. Go to the mouth of the Kenai River in June to watch them scooping big salmon out of the river. Go to the confluence of the Kenai and the Russian river in June to see the huge run of Red salmon. Of course you have to go to Denali NP. I have never driven the road to Prudhoe Bay and that is on my bucket list. Drive to Chicken, and take the top of the world highway into Dawson in the Yukon. Continue down to the Alaskan Highway to come back to the lower 48. So much to see, so little time.

  7. 1. See a sunrise and sunset from all 7 continents.
    2. Fly a hot air balloon across America (with a few stops on the way to experience some local diners).
    3. Visit a winery in every state (and if any states don’t have a winery, make up the difference in those that do).
    4. 4 corners road trip on the motorcycle of your choice.
    5. Pack 3 days clothes, go to the airport, and take the first plane leaving the country. Repeat daily until you get home. Don’t forget passport.
    6. Visit every water fall in Hawaii.
    7. Hit a bullseye in Darts.
    8. Ride every roller coaster in the USA.
    9. Visit Neuschwanstein castle.
    10. Find a meteorite.

  8. Rourke,

    That’s a great list.

    Mine would be as follows…or part of it anyways…

    1. Let my wife continue to know that she is the most important person in my life and I am glad I found her.
    2. Tell my family and friends how much they mean to me….I don’t do that enough.
    3. Continue my quest of the lower 48 states. I have been to all of them but Maine, Oregon & Washington.
    4. Visit the cesspool that is Washington just one more time before it goes to pot.
    5. Visit my ancestral home of Luxembourg and find the family that I have there.
    6. Visit Alaska and Hawaii.
    7. Go to my 30 year h.s. reunion and catch up with some old friends.
    8. Learn to play an instrument.
    9. Ride a Harley Fatboy from Barstow California to Wilmington North Carolina.
    10. See if I could find a 1962 Oldsmobile F-85, fix it up and take if for a ride across the country. One of my favorite cars from my childhood. A 1967 Camaro would be nice too.

    Wow…there is a lot of travel on my list. If money was no object…that is what I would do.

    Great stuff.


  9. i would like a long weekend camping excursion with my family, (somewhere deep, not a campground)… most important part-NO CELL PHONES OR COMPUTERS. Real family time.

    Sometimes that seems as impossible as climbing everest


  10. Any chance you could be talked out of: “Go ghost hunting”?

    I don’t really know your religious/spiritual persuasion, but just my own opinion here, you really don’t want to go down that road. Once you get evidence/proof of something like that, it’s really hard to look at the world the same again.

    I am not some guy who makes up crazy stories to scare the tourists I personally don’t care about ghosts/spirits/ufos beyond the occasional need for entertainment. I don’t like to talk about what I saw with other people as it was too &^%$ing weird and strange and at the same time too F’ing normal for words that no one would believe me.

    Your best-case scenario: You’ll be bored out of your mind and probably fall asleep.

    Your worst-case scenario: You’ll be telling everyone not to do something so stupidly-crazy ever again, and wonder if maybe you have a screw or three loose upstairs.

  11. You already have one but I was thinking perhaps to find a spouse that is like minded. Easier said than done from what I’ve experienced!
    I’ve been to Antarctica. Spending time with icebergs, penguins, seals, and whales was an awesome experience that I’d recommend to everyone.
