Bucket List

This is my bucket list.  Its purpose is to serve as a reminder of what I have done and accountability for what I am yet to do.  Anything struck through is something I have done.  Items are in no particular order at this point, except I tried to put stuff I did near the top of each list. Like the rest of my life this is not a static thing.  I will be adding new goals as I find them and discussing my adventures on the blog. Thanks for reading!
