  1. Great bucket list! I noticed that a lot of them have to do with traveling. As you probably figured out, I love to travel as well. I would highly recommend the book 1000 Places to see before you die. I am using this on my travels to make sure I see some places on this list. Here are a couple thoughts I had on your list.
    #4 -- I took surfing lessons in Hawaii. One of the best times ever!
    #5 -- Costa Rica is one of my most favorite places ever. This is also a great place to take surfing lessons...Tamarindo!
    #6 -- I'd like to do this sometime as well. I did live in Japan for 3 months, but I don't think that is long enough to count for "moving".
    #18 -- This is something I've been thinking about as well. Someone suggested I write one on my latest experiences of being unemployed.
    #25 -- On my list too! I just went to Machu Picchu so I can mark that one off. I've also been to Stonehenge.
    #28 -- Me too! I only have Antarctica and Australia to go. I'm hoping to mark off Australia in 2010.
    #32 -- The single most rewarding thing I've ever done. I highly recommend it.
    #36 -- I think I'd like to do a mini-triathlon. You go girl!!
    #39 -- On my list too!
    #47 -- I happen to get lucky and see this at Holden Beach a few summers ago. One of those things that you can't believe it until you see. Very spiritual!

    Good luck and keep us posted on how you are progressing. No time like the present to start marking them off the list!
