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

There is a bicycle trip I have my eyes on from Venice to Sibenik, Croatia, going along the coast around the Adriatic Sea.  I would also like to hike up Mt. Rainier.

So many little time!


Let's see, there are so many:

  • African safari:  will probably have to be two as I want to see the giraffes, zebras, lions etc and I would like to see the gorillas and chimps.  From what I'm researching, those are two different trips.  Planning the first hopefully in 2023 (was hoping for 2022 but those are basically sold out already.
  • Denali National Park
  • Kayaking off Vancouver or Seattle, somewhere up there and seeing the whales etc.  Kayak camping would be the best
  • Kayaking the Everglades:  I need to look at the trip report by @Philreedshikes 
  • Rim-to-rim Grand Canyon:  we start our decent 5-June-2021!!
  • learn to repel and do more bouldering and go through the slot canyons out west
  • Acadia National Park
  • section hike the AT
  • and the list goes on..............

I can now take rim to rim in Grand Canyon off the list.  We completed the adventure this past Tuesday.

slightly different bucket here.  Over the last several years, I have been involved in two very significant discoveries and excavation of pygmy mammoths on Santa Rosa island (Channel islands National Park). i would like at least one more such dig, particularly one that might indicate that early people actually hunted these critters.  Such has been speculated in the past, but no solid evidence has turned up yet.  

Amazing how geezers can be fascinated by a bunch of old bones......

Be forewarned. They never leave. I have been Dads Moving and Storage since the end of this PSU semester.

North country trail would put you at the beginning of the bourbon trail. WPA where the whiskey rebellion started was rye country until the city people taxed the country people who started the second civil war. When they "lost" they were given Kentucky and started making bourbon. (also why the PA longrifle is called the Kentucky long rifle, they brought them along into the wilderness) So if you get from there to the Appalachian trail headed south.... So you could start with a Tempelton or Basil Hayden (dont leave out Wild Turkey rye, very good at its price point) and work your way down to a Woodfords reserve.
