I'm doing something new...lately, I remind myself that "I have to start somewhere." Even if I say it multiple times a day. It is important to remind myself that if I have a momentary lapse, I can restart at any time.

Things I want to do in my adventurous life:
- Ride the Harpoon Point to Point Bicycle Race to raise money for the Hunger-Free Vermont
- Hike Camels Hump
- Hike the Worcester Range (13 miles!)
- Hike Mt. Lafayette
- Learn archery
- Learn basic electrical work
- Learn basic plumbing skills
- Bicycle to and from work one day (9 miles one way, uphill for half of it!)
- Visit the Redwoods again
- Visit Yosemite National Park
- Drive a race car
- Go to Alaska
- Go to Kamchatka
- Go to England
- Go to Ireland
- Go to Poland/Germany
- Take a genealogy field trip (or trips)
- Publish four books!
- Be a volunteer federal or state park host for a summer season
- Travel to every state in the United States with my husband and anyone in the family who'll come
- Learn how to drive a motorcycle
- Retrofit a 1967 Pontiac Firebird to be more ecologically friendly (with no computer parts!)
- Learn sign language
- Learn German (for family history research)
- Learn Russian (just because the alphabet is interesting)

    Thank you for your comment on my blog. I hope you get to go back to Hawaii, too. I didn't get back for at least 20 years after my wedding, but we are going back for the second time within the same year now. I grew up in coastal Maine and know well the siren call of New England. I still miss living on the coast in southern Maine. It is one of the most beautiful coastlines I have ever seen.

    My husband and I visited Vermont, Killington area, several years ago, and I had one of my best mountain hikes there. It was a spectacular view.
