Bucket list!

PLEASE do not respond to others posts. Just capture the items you'd like to your own BUCKET LIST.. where YOU want to tug your Escape trailer and make a memory. I'm expecting we'll see posts we never even considered.. ADD IT to your own BUCKET LIST.

COOL BEANS! I'll start...

I want to see Monument Valley, in the snow. You don't need to add a photo.. I just captured this years ago FOR MY BUCKET LIST:

Hmmm... that's a big question...

There are lots of places I haven't been at all, mostly in the southern states. And there're lots of places in the rest of the continent that I'd like to go back to.

I know this isn't the type of answer you're looking for, but I'm going to have to say that the first thing on my bucket list is to see it all.

To fly fish (and hopefully catch some) in every one of the continental 49!

Monument Valley and the East Coast (e.g., Blue Ridge and Great Smoky Mountains, historic battlefields and, basically, anything that has to do with history ... the genealogist in me is coming out). And I know John wants to see where they filmed "Last of the Mohicans".

As we age (gag) we have items that we want to see or experience... what is the FIRST thing on your bucket list? That's what I'm asking. SHARE!

We have a lengthy bucket list but the first item we are going to take care of is to camp at Silver Lake (7,000 ft) in the June Lake loop of California for a few weeks later this year then hike up to two alpine lakes from there for flyfishing at Lake Agnew (8,000ft) and Gem Lake (9,000fy)...and then fish Silver Lake, June Lake, Grant Lake, Lake Crowley and the Owens River...+any more we see are fair game!

If a bucket list includes the past, then it was Yosemite. If it's only for the future, then Yellowstone.

To see and feel Spring……..this year, after a hellacious snow filled winter.

Banff and Lake Louise. It has been on my bucket list ever since the early 60s when I had a friend who visited there and said it was the most beautiful place he had ever seen.

Also, for the past few years I've been telling my wife that I would like to make another trip across the country by driving instead of flying.

With my son and his family now living in Portland, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to make both of these wishes come true. It also gives us the opportunity to obtain the slightly larger trailer we decided we wanted. So we sold our EggCamper and will pick up an Escape 21 when we get out that way next month. Then on to Osoyoos, Banff, Glacier, Yellowstone, and several other stops on our way home to Florida.

OK, to answer the spirit of the question...

I'm a fan of the scenic side of life, rather than the cultural or historical. So for me, the highest priority items (that I haven't seen already) are in the US west and south-west: I want to drive the coast between Canada and Mexico; I want to climb the Grand Canyon; I want to spend the night deep in a real desert; I want to walk a path through the redwoods...

(but those are just stops along the way to "seeing it all"...)
