I’m a huge fan of the bucket list idea. Actually, I’m a huge fan of lists in general. I have my ‘everything to do before I’m thirty’ list, the ‘things Dan and I want to do together’ list, and of course my ultimate bucket list that acquires five more items for every one thing I actually accomplish. And now, thanks to National Geographic (NG), I have my adventure bucket list. NG compiled a list of the most extreme adventures out there. Some tasks include wingsuit flying off the Eiger and skiing K2. Now to be completely honest, I’m about 99.9% sure I will never do anything on this list. Lucky for me, NG also came up with the Next Best Adventure List. While some of these items still look pretty daunting, a few might actually be doable. I can already cross off
camel trek Morocco,
and Dan got airborne in Queenstown when he road-tripped through New Zealand.
Hike the Appalachian Trail also made the list, and though I’m not quite sure it counts, Dan and I knocked off four miles of it on a climbing trip one weekend.
So in an effort to make progress on the Next Best Adventure List, Dan and I will be white water rafting.
Other items on the Next Best Adventure List that we definitely want to do: scuba diving with hammerheads. Check out all the crazy stuff both lists have to offer for yourself. Maybe you’ll be inspired. Just make sure you have good insurance first.
