The Rocket City Bloggers have a weekly blog challenge that asks a question. I thought that I might just start participating with these for my “coffee chat” section. This week’s prompt:
This week, we look to the future! What are three things you have never done, but would like to try?
So let me think. What are three things I would like to try?
Hmm…that’s a good one. I had to think long and hard about that. What would I like to try that I have never done? There are a bunch of things that I had never done, that I enjoyed over the past couple years – salmon fishing, moose hunting, 4 wheeling, kayaking, ice fishing, etc. So what are some other things on my bucket list?
1. Scuba Diving. I love swimming – was the captain of the swim team in high school. I love the outdoors, anyone that knows me, knows that. But scuba diving is something I have never done and would love to give a try!
2. Hiking the Appalachian Trail. Years ago, a good friend and I did a lot of hiking, and would hike between 30 and 36 miles every week. We enjoyed it so much, we started making plans to hike the Appalachian Trail for 2 weeks. We were going to start in Georgia and see how far we could get in that time. We had started researching the trail, what gear we would need and all the details. We had even marked our calendars as to what month we were going to do it. Then her husband was killed in Iraq. Needless to say, life changed and so did our plans. Some day I would still like to make that trek.
3. Wine & Painting Class. I’ve seen these events and now locally there is a place to do it. They look so much fun, but the challenge is finding a group that would want to join you, especially when you are new to town! Maybe some day down the road, once our roots are a little deeper, I’ll get the opportunity to do this.
What are some things that you would live to step out of ordinary life and give a try?
