FEATURED: Do you have an actual "Bucket List" or a vague notion of kind of stuff you'd like to do?

Is it a list if there's only one thing on it? (Camp Winnaribbun)

I got one. Dig a hole 6ft deep and jump in, then kick the bucket

Repealing the Hughes Amendment is near the top of my bucket list.

You don't want to. The 'Randfan' moniker is a lie. He's very much in favor of a violent end for anyone daring to own a firearm.

My plan is to write down all my (somewhat reachable) goals and things I want to do, randomly pick out one of them, and won't stop trying to achieve it until done. Repeat. :)

That which is measured gets done.

I have my active list and add and complete items all of the time!

Why is a bucket list called a bucket list? Someone please enlighten me!

Bucket list comes from the saying for death, "kick the bucket" so basically when you say bucket list, it means it's things you'd like to do before you die.

Mine are all very specific. One is that I want to see blue whales with my own eyes. They're the largest creatures that as far as we know have ever existed in the history of planet earth, it's so completely enthralling to me and I want to experience seeing them.

I want to learn how to cook. Not just a passing familiarity but a deep understanding of cooking techniques and how to create dishes and combine ingredients. I want to be able to make a perfect pizza margherita

Enraged- same here on the cooking. I actually just started writing my list a week ago, although I've always had a list in my mind.

I've already seen Paul McCartney in concert. Soon to see Bob Dylan. But I'm hoping to go to London this fall and walk across Abbey Road. I'd like to visit the Reagan Library also.

Good question...I honestly can't even think of anything right now that would even be on my bucket list. Maybe go back to visit the town where I was raised.

I keep a bucket list. It's not for my actual dreams and aspirations for my life and career path, it's just things that I want to achieve along the way, like learning the single ladies dance and using an entire chapstick without losing it. odd little things that I want to experience just because.

Anyone who can finish a tube of Chapstick without losing it is my hero. I may get about a weeks worth of use out of a tube before I lose it.

Lolz. Tiny posted my questions while back asking whether anyone had ever done that. I'm an avid Chapstick user and I've only done it once.

I don't have a bucket list, but I do have a list of things to do before my kids graduate high school. Take them out of the country for a trip, take them to Disneyland, and live closer to family.

I've already done almost everything that I've wanted to. So my bucket list is pretty short. And I'm only 35.

If the opportunity to do something outrageous presents itself, I'll do it. I figure I'm still young I don't want to regret not doing it when I'm older and can't do it. I'm thinking about signing up for a mud run later this year. Should be fun...

I find it depressing to think of anything as 'before I die' - everything you want to do will have to be before death. But there are a million things I want to do. I wouldn't be able to make a list if I tried.

- Marry Anna Nicole Smith.
- Continue to work on my "intelligent" phone idea.
- Invest in Enron.
- Meet Michael Jackson.
- Visit Kabul.

Maybe I should sit down and update my list.

I have a list for my 30's, 40's, and 50's. Then an overall list. Also a list of things I want to do with my daughter and son and then my husband. To top it off I have a list of things for my whole family!

Great question. I did not consider our goals as a bucket list, but it does fit the idea. Retire early and spend everyday with my wife. However, taking care of my aging and sick mother was not part of the goal. But we have loved the first two parts for six years now. We should update our list now.

Would love to spend 6 months in Antarctica but since I'm not a scientist that's not likely to happen. Adopting a child is my other dream. Going to Wrigley field to see the Cubs play, and seeing a World Cup Soccer final game for my sports list. I met Dean Smith 5 years ago, and that got crossed off!

U don't hafta be a scientist. I'm going to apply to work there. There's crappy jobs like housekeeping n kitchen. But u need remote camp experience n physical/ mental testing to see if u can handle it.

Both. I have a very real purpose and sense of how I want to live my life and I keep a a regular journal of detailed goals, plans and aspirations. "If you fail to plan then plan to fail."

No. I don't need a bucket list to remind me to look out for pet squirrels.

And yes, I'm quite serious.

Some friends o' mine had a pet squirrel. Absolutely adorable, but it would nip at you, if it didn't like how you were handling it. (kind o' like people!)
It was tragic, though. One day, couldn't find it anywhere, then we looked in the bathroom..... ????
...another reason to keep the lid down. :(

I've hiked all of the AT in NC, and parts of Tenn. and Va. I will do the whole trail one day myself!! That and go to New Zealand are the only 2 definites on the list. Getting married used to be on the list but I've given up on that one...
