My Bucket List

I have always thought it is very important to have big dreams, big goals, and always be looking to some new adventure. Hence, the Bucket List.  I wrote mine out a few years ago and it is always growing, especially with places to see around this great world. Not all items are about travel, and not all items are huge adventures.  Some are simply things I think are cool and awesome stories after the fact.  Because I love telling an awesome story. So I would love to share mine with you! Each experience has a story, some can be found in this here blog even!
