40 Things To Do Before 40
0

9 posts in this topic

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.

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.

    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      Brain fog is a common symptom.  I had a hamburger patty from a local restaurant and am suffering the effects.  Sometimes mine is bad and sometimes it is mild.  This one feels mild, provided I am not "glutened" again.  I have the exact same feelings when I am contaminated.  I actually had 2 good days this week to ony have to go back through this again.  The first day is just tired and want to sleep, but as each day goes on it seems like all I can do to concentrate and do anything.  TV is OK but for me just standing up or moving sometimes makes me dizzy.  Luckily I don't have the nausea but even sitting still I feel like I am in a swimming pool moving.  You know kind of like when you were a kid and you got in the pool or went roller skating but then got out and and you still felt like you in the pool or skating?  The anxiety and the depression is the worst.  I am taking things to help with it but it doesn't always help.  Only thing that seems to help sometimes is just going in to my room and laying there and not moving and just going to sleep.   It will pass.  Just be cautious about everything.  I have opted to let my family know that I will bring my OWN food when we have gatherings.  I don't mind being the odd man out because I am already the odd ball.  One thing I have learned and that is people mean well but mistakes happen and we are the ones who have to pay the price.   Hope you feel better soon.
    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      Look into The Paleo Approach by Sara Ballentyne, PhD.  Great resource and will probably answer your questions.  I have the same problem. You have to really read labels.  The only coconut milk I can use is an organic canned one.  Others have too many ingredients that are problematic.  For now, stay with meat and vegetables as someone else has recommended.  If rice works for you, great.  If not, winter squash is good.  The diet change is overwhelming at first but then it starts to make sense.  The one good thing about an intolerance versus allergy is the possibility of someday being able to add it back into your diet once your gut has healed.

      I went gluten free about a month ago, and was finally feeling *great* last week when wham -- my well-meaning Dad cooked me dinner and forgot to check the ingredients on the fish sauce he used. The upside of being glutened for the first time is that, after a couple weeks of feeling good, I feel like I can discern the symptoms a lot better now. I've noticed that the worst part, aside from the nausea, is the "brain fog," but I'm curious if my experience of brain fog is the same as or similar to what other people are feeling. For me, it becomes almost physically painful to concentrate on anything. If I try to read a book, or watch a TV show, it makes me feel dizzy, overwhelmed, and nauseous. For a couple days, I feel like all I can do is try to stay still and do as little as possible while I wait it out. It feels similar to anxiety, but not quite the same, and none of the usual tricks for getting through a panic attack help. Do any of you experience brain fog in a similar way? Where it basically makes you feel sick to try and concentrate on anything, even fun and relaxing things?
    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      I've never gone fructose free so can't help much with that.  But any fruit is probably a problem.  If you are serious about avoiding fructose you could do a search and print out a list of foods to avoid. http://www.mayoclinic.org/fructose-intolerance/expert-answers/faq-20058097 Yes, it very possible to have multiple food intolerance issues.  Many people have multiple food intolerances.  It might help to avoid any foods that are sweet for now.  Meat and most veggies are probably the way to go.  You may want to get some jerky to eat for snacks.  Peanuts might be ok but you'll need to verify that.  Boiled eggs are probably ok.  Most soda would be a no-no.

      Hi Courtney, You asked about dairy, and RMJ got it right.  Celiac disease destroys the villi lining of the small intestine.  Those villi make the lactase enzyme we need to digest dairy. Sigmoid colon thickening could be related to diverticulitis.  Which according to Wiki is a fairly common condition but doesn't always cause symptoms.  Diverticulitis can cause a problem if there is an infection though.  The sigmoid colon is part of the large intestine.  Celiac disease affects the small intestine, so celiac isn't likely involved.  I am not sure why the resident suggested celiac, unless there were some other reason to do so.  Possibly the weight loss, which could be explained by celiac disease.  Thickening of the colon may happen with Crohn's disease also.  And I'm not sure about UCD (ulcerative colitis disease) but it might cause that also, not sure https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diverticulosis https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sigmoid_colon http://biology-pages.info/G/GITract.html#pancreas http://www.ccfa.org/what-are-crohns-and-colitis/what-is-ulcerative-colitis/

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
