New Year’s Resolution: 100 Adventures in 2014!

I want to do this.

I can do this. One hundred adventures in 2014!

By my pathetic math estimation that’s a different adventure every three days or so. Genius!

This idea is not my own. I read about this amazing Aussie couple who were worried that their two daughters spent too much time inside. So they ditched TV for 100 outdoor activities.

I can’t wait. And you can follow the thrills, chills, and spills.

I hope I can wrangle some family members into joining me. If it comes to it, I am not above bribery. A homemade chocolate brownie here, a foot rub there… I am very convincing.

Now I am excited to get my list of 2014 adventures down on paper.

Here are the first 15:

  1. Slacklining (walking on a rope between two trees)
  2. Spend the night in a hammock
  3. Gem hunting at Topaz Mountain
  4. Kayaking
  5. Deep powder skiing
  6. Forage for a meal
  7. Travel by horse-drawn sleigh
  8. Sleep in a teepee
  9. Moonlight bike ride
  10. Find a waterfall
  11. Caving
  12. Hike The Wave
  13. Make snow ice cream
  14. Ride a wave bodyboarding
  15. Explore tide pools

One hundred is a big number so I’m going to need some help.

What adventures should be on my 2014 list?

Firecracker. That’s how my husband described me when we first met. I like to think that it was a compliment pertaining to my penchant for high-energy go-go. I am the token baby boomer in this group. The one who is stalling when it comes to elastic waistband pants and evenings in the recliner. This fearless desire to roam the earth started quite early, when as a toddler, my father would nail my bedroom door shut so that I wouldn’t head out in the wee morning hours going door-to-door in search of breakfast or a toy. True story. Today, our beautiful life consists of an empty-nested, second marriage, 10 children, 13 grandchildren, and a yen for travel and discovery. I ski. He golfs. And together we play tennis and work on creating memories and traditions that bind our collective hearts together. After years of shopping center marketing, ad agency ownership, and some social media giddy up for the education and medical esthetic industry, I’ve learned that I am most at home sharing my love for a good story and the next adventure.
