Memorable Automobiles from the past:
Now, for today:
1. a number of experiences or achievements that a person hopes to have or accomplish during their lifetime.
"making this trip is the first thing on my bucket list"
Once or twice in my lifetime I have sat down and made a todo list for life. As you see above it is now called a ‘bucket list.’ I don’t remember much on the list, but I remember two things that were always there.
1. Drive to Alaska on the ALCAN highway. WE did that.
2. Visit Ireland! I have not made that one yet. As the clock ticks that one seems to ease out the window of time. BUT someone did say, “It ain’t over until it is Over!”
Grandson Josh and his new wife Megan a few years ago did my dream, they made it to Ireland. Megan is an artist and also crafty. As a nurse she also knows planning. She arranged the trip using Airbnb. They learned it was hard to understand the accent (Not even considering Gaelic). Driving was tough but staying in real Irish homes, rather than hotels, was more than equal. It was a thrill just to listen to the experience.
I do have a short list in the back of my mind. There are times it makes its way to the front.
I would like for Sherry to see the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace and ride a double decker bus. Then make our way on over to Ireland.
A personal one, I would like to do a thru hike of the Appalachian Trail. Meaning hiking the entire 2180 miles in one continuous walk. It takes from 6 to nine months of steady walking.
In 2018 an old man trail name ‘Pappy’ 87 started and made it nearly 1800 miles before his knee gave out and he had to quit. It is just a personal thing maybe prove I can still do something. Lol I might drop out in the first 100 miles, but I would like to give it a try.
So much for bucket lists and thoughts for today. ;-)
ps: Did you know....Airports at higher altitudes require a longer airstrip due to lower air density.
