When I visit a destination I’m always on the lookout for unique experiences that I can’t replicate anywhere else. I found several bucket list adventures in Las Vegas that you will definitely want to add to your list!
The most awkward question a person can ask me is a simple, common question you ask someone you don’t know. “Do you have any brothers or sisters?”
Do you ever notice how easy it is to think of a list of things you want to do over the summer …….and then……. how quickly summer flies by before you’ve crossed everything off your list? [Read more…]
“If you want to do something bad enough, you will find a way, if not, you’ll find an excuse.” – Jim Rohn
This is my all-time favorite quote because it kicks my butt and challenges me to question my priorities and determine if they are really mine, someone else’s, or what I think I should want to do.
We can all say we don’t have time but if someone offered me an opportunity to experience a dream adventure, I would somehow find the time and make a way….and if it is really something that I want to do, what’s getting in the way and how can I change that?
I like to make a running tab of adventures that I want to cross off. I’ve been fortunate to cross many off the list this past year so that means that I keep looking for new ones to add to the list.

Do you have an adventure list?

A ride along experience has been on my adventure list for a while. I love adventures but I like controlled risk. That means that I like adventures that I’m pretty sure that I won’t get hurt as long as I trust the equipment or the expert. That’s why I don’t really have a desire to drive a race car…not to say I wouldn’t if given the opportunity. I just knew that I would go faster with a race car driver than I would if I were the one behind the wheel.
Dog sledding has been on my bucket list for awhile. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would get to drive a dog sled. I was so excited when we met Terry and he invited us to his home to try driving a dog sled. We met him while he was giving demos for family Winterfest event at an outdoor nature preserve.
