Going to 4 corners is on my bucket list!

A few months ago, I decided to write down my travel bucket list.  There were a lot of things that I could have put on there

Goals that are not written down are just wishful thinking

I attempted to categorize them into a few categories, in no particular order.  I did try to give a range of difficulties – some are definitely easier than others.  I also totally cheated and put down some thing that were bucket-list LIKE that I’ve already done :-).

Adding something to my travel bucket list

I don’t know how you handle your bucket list, but I like to think of the bucket list as more of a “living document”.  I haven’t figured out if I should take off the ones that I’ve already done (or maybe just move them to a “completed” section.  But I definitely think it’s good to add things as you find things you want to see.

The other day, someone shared on my Facebook page a link to the following article

Once a Year at 11:11 am the Sun Shines Perfectly on this Memorial

It’s a Veterans Memorial in the city of Anthem, Arizona, which is about 30 minutes north of Phoenix.

11 / 11, 11:11:11

I’ve always enjoyed Veterans Day, or what I call “11/11 day”.  If you follow me on Twitter, you might have seen my tweet from Tuesday

3 years ago, on 11/11/11, we had a big 11 party at my house, with 11-themed snacks and a 11-trivia game.  So when I saw this, I knew that I had to add it to my travel bucket list.  My only question was “Why did I only see about this on November 12th?!!??”

I hope that you’ll share with me some things on your bucket list and more importantly take the time to write them down!

I stopped at 50, though I had a few more on my list that I could have added.  Which of these have you done?  What did I miss?
