Years before I’d every heard the term bucket list, I used the term ‘mental resume‘ to describe things I wanted to do one day. Then I’d add them to the resume in my head…as in a resume that no one would ever see, or that’d even be written, but a resume I could reflect on…perhaps sharing some of the stories with friends along the way.
I may have changed my mind on not jotting these things down along the way, as I’ve since grown to be a fan of notebooks/journals. The reality is, we may actually forget some cool things we’ve done along the way if we don’t record them somewhere. But I digress…
Off the top of my head, and in no particular order…here are a few things that I want to get around to doing before I kick the bucket.
Go Diving with Great White Sharks
How cool would THAT be?! Now to be clear, I do NOT wanna go down there without being in a cage. Although I’ve got mad respect for those that go down with no steel cage for protection, I think they’re crazy. My butt’s gonna be in a cage.
While I’m down there, I definitely wanna take some pictures. Hopefully at least one of which would be good enough to enlarge and frame. (I used to be into photography and wanna get into it again. So, for me, getting a good photo out of the shark dive is almost as important as the experience itself.)
I’ve looked into it, and one of the premier areas in the world to dive with great whites is off the coast of Northern California…right around where I used to live.
Although I’m sure I’d get a little nervous right before going down, this is one I’m really looking forward to!
Tour North America in an RV
This bucket list item certainly isn’t an adrenaline-based one, but boy would it be cool! [Read more…]
