The Bucket List

The bucket list was started back in February, 2013. The idea is to create a list of all the things that I'd like to accomplish and experience over the years.

I hope this list being in a public place will want people to experience these with me. This list is ever growing, shrinking, and changing (and yes, was inspired by the movie)


  • Scuba dive the Great Barrier Reef ...
  • Paramotor Horseshoe Bend ...
  • Picnic under a tree watching clouds from above ...
  • Learn to Kite Surf
  • See something majestic
  • Ski down a double black run at Perisher (confidently)

  • Maintain a bee hive

A new life goal is to set and try and achieve a little challenge every year. Past challenges have been as follows. I don’t tend to do these any more 😥

  • 2012 - NO coffee
  • 2013 - Enter a gym at least 2 days a week
  • 2014 - Learn Pirates of the Caribbean (Jarrod Radnich Version)
