I'm not very old (at all) but at the ripe old age of 25, having somehow stumbled upon buying a house (2 years ago) and having a family (my wife and 8 month old child), I have noticed myself planning the things I want to do before I die. I have a few friends that participate in the 101 in 1001 (I have never really participated in one). I don't really plan on starting one because a lot of the goals I have been planning, due to their size, belong more appropriately on a "bucket list." My friend Doug Boutwell has a pretty impressive bucket list, though I don't think that it is written down. One of his life goals was to get his pilot license and fly somewhere rad. Luckily, he (as well as I) has a pretty amazing wife that will let him do crazy thing like this.
over the last 2 years I have added a few things to my list... finish my tattoo, publish a book (with little to no words), skydive, learn to sail and fly, live in another country, hand craft my own guitar, watch my son grow up... to name a few. The list goes on and on but I think having a list like this keeps you alive. I love living life like I have yet to complete it. It keeps me alive and kicking.
So these are a few photos (taken with my iphone cause the genius that i am i brought my big fancy camera and no card reader....) of the trip so far...
