100 Things I Must Do

Everyone has a bucket list of some sort.  Here’s a list of some of the things I feel compelled to do, which may be places I want to visit, people I want to meet, or activities I want to do.  They are in no particular order and while some may be extremely broad and random and certainly this is not an all inclusive list, I will update them and be more specific — eventually.  As I do them, I’ll cross them off and a hyperlink will appear so you can read about it in the blog.  If you want to help me experience one of the items on my list, feel free to contact me.
