My Adventure List

A conversation with a friend about bucket lists, put me in the mood to put together my own list of adventures, expeditions and milestones I want to experience before I die. I decided to create the list like I might have if I was ten years old so that I could keep track of some of the adventures I have already experienced.  Every time I complete an item on my list, I will update it here and I’ll also add new adventures as I decide I want them on my list.
