40 Things To Do Before 40

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.

    • Hi! My daughter is 19 was diagnosed at age 16. It took about 12-18 month s for her to fully heal from the damage and feel "normal" again. Also because of the damage done she had reactions to dairy, so you may want to try no or minimum dairy until youre fully healed. Just a suggestion. Hope you start feeling well soon!
    • Hi yall! New to this blog, but really glad it exists because I have lots of questions. First off, I'm Allie! I'm 17 and newly diagnosed Celiac after about 3 years of searching for answers. I initially went gluten-free on the recommendation of a friend, I felt better in about a month and then my pediatric gastroenterologist had me do the gluten challenge, and my symptoms were the worst they have ever been, and ones I barely noticed before became very present. I did the biopsy and was diagnosed, it's been about 2 weeks and my symptoms are still pretty bad, although my diet has no known sources of gluten or cross contamination. Wondering if anyone has any input on healing post gluten challenge, any tips or how long it took for you would be quite helpful! Thanks 
    •   Might want to look into a keto diet, I have UC on top of celiacs and keto is working great Yeah I have major nerve and brain issues with gluten, gluten ataxia with nerve issues and brain issues. Seems to cause my body to attack my brain and nerve system. My brain stumbles fogs, and starts looping, the confusion causes me to become really irritable, I call it going Mr Hyde. Like my mind will start looping constantly on thoughts and not move driving me literally mad, or it used to. Now days it is primary the numbness anger but the gut issues and sometimes random motor loss limit me motionless to the floor now days for the duration of the major anger effects. Used to be a lot more mental then painful gut. I did a mental trauma post on it on while back where I came out about all my mental issues with gluten.  
    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some. 
    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there.
