10 Things I Have Never Done

Mini Blog Challenge: 10 Things I Have Never Done

Who in the heck comes up with these mini-challenges?

Oh, wait. That would be me.

Why do I make them so tough to do then? LOLOL

Okay, here we go…

1. I have never been sailing.

I have been in a lot of boats in my life, but never a sailboat. I think I would love to sail.

2. I have never been to Maine.

Somehow I have never managed to visit Maine. I have no clue why it is so important to me, especially when it is so cold up there. Maybe I just wanna be able to flirt with an old fisherman, or maybe I just really like crab and lobster.

Hmmmm…. I could probably do that in Alaska too, huh?

3. I have never been very normal.

Hey now! I actually like this about me.

Life would be so boring without my funky outlook on it.

4. Drove the full length of historic Route 66.

This one is definitely on my bucket list of things to do before I die. I would love to photograph the entire route, one special moment at a time.

5. I have never figured out how to stay married.

Ha! Apparently I was born with a broken man picker. On the flip side though, I am probably pretty tough to live with.

6. I have never held a chimpanzee.

I love monkeys!

I am totally amazed by their expressions and would love to hold a baby one!

7. I have never been very organized.

I don’t know why I am so lousy at being organized.

I think perhaps my brain just doesn’t work that way.

8. I have never ridden on the back of a bull.

As much as love watching bull riders, I have absolutely no desire to ride a bull, not even a little one! I might consider a mechanical one someday!

9. I have never chased a tornado.

I love the power of a good old fashioned storm but I have never chased a tornado. I am a bit of a chicken, so I doubt this is something I would do even if I was given the chance. It would totally rock to photograph one though, huh?

10. I have never lived completely alone.

Being that I am nearly 50 years old, this seems nearly impossible, but true. The youngest of the litter will be leaving the nest soon and I wonder if I will be lonely or if I will simply go with the flow and become a crazy cat lady.

Okay, it’s your turn now. Tell me 10 things that you have never done!

    I didn’t know how else to reply to this so I got inspired and blogged about the same thing. Here are the 11 things I have never done (I just had to go for 11 instead of 10 lol): https://www.egotaco.com/11-things-i-have-never-done/

    Don’t stop at Maine. You would be remiss to not visit the Canadian Maritime Provinces if you were to come aas far as Maine.

    I was lucky enough to drive all of Route 66 when it was still a major highway!
    10 things I’ve never done (either regrets or things I’m still working on):
    1. Published a song.
    2. Been to Alaska, Japan or Australia.
    3. Learned Japanese and Italian.
    4. Had a garden large enough to live on. (I work on this one every summer.)
    5. Stood on the Grand Canyon Skywalk.
    6. Been to San Antonio.
    7. Seen Carhenge in Nebraska (crossing this one off next summer!)
    8. Ridden the rapids on the Youghiogheny River.
    9. Walked the length of the Appalachian Trail.
    10. Been up in a hot air balloon.
    This was fun, mostly because it got me thinking about all I HAVE been able to do! (But I STILL don’t want to ride a bull named ‘Fu Man Chu’!)

    10 Things I have never done

    1. Rode in a Helicopter
    2. Rode in a Hot Air Balloon
    3. Learned to really play the guitar
    4. Visited the only state I have never been in, Hawaii
    5. Rode the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon
    6. Toured the Alps
    7. Driven a race car on a NASCAR track

    This was actually pretty hard. Probably 1, 2, and 4 are the only ones I will accomplish but hey, if you are going to have a bucket list make the best one you can! I can think of at least 5 more things I would like to do but these are my top 10.
