So here is the start of the running tab. I reserve the right to add to the list as my curiosity continues to become aware of new places and experiences to try. Some are way more ambitious than others, but I figured I might as well go with the quote “shoot for the moon and if you miss you are still among the stars” Travel wise I would love to go all over the world but gotta start a little smaller.The list could really go on and on…….this is just scratching the surface . So I guess this is my start but I don’t ever want to stop adding.

 

Remember a “Goal is dream with a deadline.” Don’t let time get away from your dreams.

“If you want to do something bad enough, you will find a way, if not you find an excuse.”

 

What’s on your list? What should I add to mine? Who wants to join me?

    Next time you come to Cinci- eat at Tom & Chee- they were on Man Vs. Food- and go to Pittsburgh and eat a Primanti’s Brothers “sammich”- they were on Diners, Dives, and Drive-Ins, and it’s one of my favorite places!

    As for canopy zipline- Kevin and I did the zipline across the Red River Gorge this September- and it was one of the coolest things I’ve ever done. Kevin is terrified of heights, and he was a trooper! There are 5 lines, and the longest line is over a mile, and the highest line is 3,000 feet in the air! It’s a newer company- but their guides were the BEST! They were funny, encouraging, and made me feel extremely safe and confident.

    I love your list, and it inspired me to make my own! You rock =)

      We saw that episode on man vs. food. I want to eat there next time I’m in town and I will have to check out that zipline tour. I’ve done shorter ones and I think one that last a long time at various checkpoints would be fun. Thanks for the tips and keep on passing ideas my way:)
