What adventures are on your outdoor bucket list?

Just curious what folks have on their hiking/biking bucket list..

For me:

#1/#2 GDMBR/CDT (ride it not race it:)) and Trans-America bike ride Virginia to Oregon

Nothing really close but that would be part of the adventure 🙂

Nice site! 

I vote for Oktoberfest!!

Here's how I want to do it:

1. Fly to Frankfurt

2. Train to Rothenburg A.D.T., 1 night

3. Train to Munchen, visit Oktoberfest, Hoffbrauhaus, Michaelskirche (St Michael's Church) (burial site of King Ludwig), 1 night

4. Train to Garmisch-Partenkirchen, 1 night

5. 2 day hike up the Zugspitze, via Partnach Klamm to Rheintal Anger Hutte (1 night), then hike to Knorr Hutte (1 night), hike to summit, then train or cable car back down, 1 last night in Garmisch.

6. Train to Frankfurt, fly out.

What a great trip!

 

Plus, you would have to get an appropriate backpack...

Just place in a creek for 30 minutes and its a GO!

I adventure raced the Pittsburgh Tri (mostly because I didn’t want to swim that River. Ha!). It wasn’t bad at all. Kinda cool if you live there because you actually biked the BIG road (closed to traffic at the time).  
Years ago, but I assume that they still do it....well, maybe not 2020/2021 but in general.
Was fun but was also a sprint (short race).

I'll be almost 63 when I start my hike from the eastern term of the PNT next June, taking a left at the PCT, then rethinking things when I get to the Bridge of the Gods... Been prep-n. Cant wait

Completed my #1 bucket list item last year. Canoed the Source to Sea. Mississippi River. 

I just completed a weekender in the Garden of the Gods Wilderness Area in Southern Illinois.  MY buddies and I strung together multiple hikes resulting in a 3 night/4 day trek.  If you are located in the midwest, specifically in a 6-8 hour radius of Garden of the Gods, this is DEFINTELY worth the drive!

No, you don't get the National Geographic scenery of the ACTUAL Garden of the GOds in Colorado, but this is definitely a gem for the Midwest! Highly recommend.
