Bucket List

I love the idea of the Bucket List. I've kept one since I was in elementary school. It's evolved considerably over the years. It's almost embarassing to read some of the things I imagined my life would be like once upon a time, but a few of those dreams persist. (I'm not interested in marrying Scott Baio anymore, but I still want my very own Jeep.) I haven't written the list down for a while, but I got a new journal for my birthday so I've spent a few minutes daydreaming this week.

  • Take Jonas portaging in Algonquin Park
  • Sleep in a quinzee
  • Learn fly fishing
  • Spend a week at a fly-in fishing camp
  • Take a Wilderness First Aid course
  • Learn to drive a motor cycle
  • Take Jonas to BC
  • Go salmon fishing in Alaska
  • Watch the Northern Lights beside a campfire in the Yukon
  • See Yellowstone by backpack and/or horseback
  • Go on an African Safari
  • Feed an elephant
  • Take a race driving course
  • Shoot a gun
  • Build homestead with a log cabin and subsistance garden
  • Own a Jeep
  • Own a canoe
  • Buy the Lillie Pad
  • Road trip across Canada

What's on your list?



  1. We watch the northern lights from our backyard frequently, shoot guns and ride in jeeps. You might not have to travel as far as you think to do some of these things. I don't like buckets so I don't have a bucket list.

  2. I keep telling Steve that we should think about moving to SK but he's really against winter. Getting him out there in the summer should definitely be on this list!
