I will be turning fifty years old in less than four months. I have started my “Fifty at Fifty” list.
I have been googling the interwebs for bucket list ideas. It’s kind of fun for me, it seems I have complete some of the popular items out there:
go on a trip alone
run a marathon
have an epic adventure
My list so far:
Celebrate my birthday in Grenada
I want a cake for my birthday
Break 24 hours at Umstead
take my bike on a mtn bike trail
start a podast
snowboard or ski again
Learn a new skill (??)
go on a woods adventure on my own. hmm, maybe I have done this? maybe hike the LH by myself?
take a 30 day challenge-photo a day?
paint a picture
put yourself out there (??)
run an obstacle course race
visit a new museum
be able to do a pull up
get my CCW
Declutter my house
Put photos in photo album/scrapbook. Start with the dogs
Visit Falling Water. and Kentuck Knob. Seriously. Oh, and stay overnight somewhere swanky-ie not the back of my vehicle or the Yough Motel.
Do the Whole 30 or vegetarian for 30 days.
White water rafting on the Yough in Ohiopyle
build a gingerbread house
Monetize my blog
Work on family genealogy (?)
Attend a blogging/social media conference
Go to a festival, like the Pumpkin Festival (or Ramp Festival)
Eat a fruit I’ve never eaten before
make and bury a time capsule
Any ideas for me? This really is not a “bucket list”, like all the activities you would want to do before dying. I’m also being realistic about what type of travel I’ll be doing in 2016. This is why “Run the Grand Canyon” isn’t on the list, as I don’t think a trip out west is in the cards this year.
What do you want to do, when you hit age fifty?
