What would you add to a list of 40 things to do before 40, things that you've never done before?

 

Mine are:

 

Climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge

Swim with sharks in a shark cage

Swim with the crocodiles in a glass tank

Drive around the A1

Swim with dolphins

Go whale watching along the Great Ocean Road

Scuba dive out to the Great Barrier Reef

Get my boat licence

Read the Lord Of The Rings books and watch the movies, and Hobbit too

Attend a Full Moon Party on the Island

Camp at Uluru

Do the Kokoda Trail

Complete a triathlon on my own, not as part of a team, not to win but to do it

 

 

That's all I have at the moment, I haven't done those things before and would like to.  Looking for some more inspiration

This isn't a before I'm 40, but eventually. I want to spend a week at Giraffe Manor. That is pretty much everything big I want to do with my life.

 

Little things though. I've never been to an aquarium or a planetarium, even though we have both up in the city. I'd like to go to ponycon. :ph34r: I'd like to pet more giraffes. :D

I just have a few months left before 40 so I would have to think longer term...

 

Travel with my family - We've never flown anywhere before but times are good so we are taking the kids to Disneyland this fall.  :) I would love to see hawaii, Costa Rica (again), go on a European cruise, visit eastern Canada in the fall, and go back to Vancouver island a few more times.

 

Run half marathon distances again.

 

Do more hiking in the mountains.

 

I can't think of many things that I'd like to do... I'm not a thrill seeker, and I don't enjoy speed, so helicoptor rides, fast cars and boats, and thrill inducing endevors like bungee jumping have absolutely zero appeal for me.

 

There are a bunch of things I'd like to see my kids accomplish but that stuff isn't really up to me.  LOL

Well, I am almost 20 years past 40, so I don't know if it counts, but I would like to learn clawhammer banjo. (I play Scruggs style now.) I'd like to get better on harp. I'd like to take voice lessons. I WILL get my original songs copyrighted soon and then start pushing them. (I would love it if Chris McNulty recorded one of my songs - if you have never heard her, pop over to Youtube and give a listen.) I also want to record a Christmas C D and give copies to all my friends.

gluten-free since June, 2011

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

 

BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!

Some years these can be really neat. About 10 years ago they were so bright that I would sit outside in our hotub, in January, and see them clearly in spite of the fact that I was 5km from downtown Calgary. I remember being able to read from them, and from that pinkish glow that you get from city lights reflecting on snow. Very neat.  :)

I'm a little over 20 years past 40, bartful. I would love one of your Christmas CDs. I guess my list would be closer to a bucket list, but I'm hoping the bucket doesn't appear until 30 more years, doggone it!!

 

Some of the things I'm doing already, like spending time with my granddaughter by going to the Little League Softball World Series and showing my illustrations in coffee shops.

 

I'd like to go to Alaska during summer to see the land of the midnight sun, spend time in San Francisco, and visit New York City. I'd also like to go out on a sailboat and travel the world. I remember seeing an article in National Geographic many years ago about a 17 year old who sailed around the world by himself. All the pictures in the magazine made me want to do something like that - see the world on a boat, but be self-sufficient the whole time.
