What’s On Your “Life List?”

Outside Magazine’s “Life List”

I recently came across an article in Outside Magazine that presented the following life list.  A list like this was, of course, the basis for the movie, The Bucket List.

What an interesting list, and at age 65 I’ve accomplished many of these.  I’m excited, though, at the idea of doing more and creating my own Life List. Here’s my score for the Outside Magazine list:

Tour de USA 2010

I checked off a long distance motorcycle ride when I crossed the US and back last summer for prostate cancer awareness.  (http://tourdeusa2010.wordpress.com)

What’s on Your List?

If you are a prostate cancer survivor, I would love to hear what’s on your list.  It would be great fun to create a consolidated survivor list and track our progress.
