25/04/2017 - My Original Lifelong Bucket List completed



Many of you reading this surely have a "bucket list".    I hope I can inspire you by telling you that as of April 2015 I have completed mine.  Its taken me a while to post this as I normally keep this sort of thing to myself, but I wanted to share it with everyone. So here you go:

  1. 2012:  Earned my wings (private pilots license)
  2. 2015:  Traveled to, stepped foot on and went bivvy camping on Antarctica
  3. 2015:  Solo 5400kms expedition/drive through the Patagonian Andes
  4. 2010:  Trekked the Mt Everest basecamp (EBC) trek- Chomolungma (Mother Goddess of the world)
  5. 2015:  Build and still use a true 4WD Expedition Camper van
  6. 2005:  Climbed a large mountain (alpine climbing) in Alaska
  7. 2013:  Went to Fiji and island hopped for 24 days
  8. 2005:  Solo drive the Alaska Highway 3860 miles in WINTER from Seattle to Anchorage under the Northern Lights
  9. 2001: Solo 2600 mile drive across the continental USA
  10. 2001: Skied at the birthplace of downhill skiing in Davos, Switzerland.


I am now working on my next bucket list.   I am in my mid-40s and feeling like I am 25 or 30 still! I hope this blog post can inspire others to keep dreaming and working towards their dreams!
